AskMe about mixed up text messages

I could have sworn that there was an AskMe not too long ago about sending one text message but having a different one come up on your recipient's phone. Of course, I can't find it. Am I thinking of something I read somewhere else, or does this question exist?

Writing to find a post about writing

Or it could have been a comment, about writing or planning a book. It went something like this. (I think it was askme, but I'm not sure). 1. Event 2. Climax 3. Ending And then 1a. Lead up to event. 1b. actual event. 1c. results of event. 2a. Lead up to climax 2b. Almost climax 2c. Climax! Showing a hierarchical method of laying out a story, so that the paragraphs practically write themselves. Thank you.

AskMe Resolved, Six and a Half Years Later

Back in 2006, I asked a question about a scene I saw on TV back when I was a kid. No one knew the answer. [more inside]

Browsing AskMe Questions for Resolutions

Feature request! For the AskMe "My Favorites" page, would it be possible to mark best-answered questions with the same little green checkmark that appears next to best-answered questions on AskMe's main page? I often favorite questions because (while I never would have thought to ask them in the first place) they pique my curiosity once I read them, and I mean to come back to them later. A checkmark in "My Favorites" would be an easy way to see, from that page, whether such questions had been answered since I'd favorited them. Thanks for your consideration, and I hope all is well with you. I send my fondest regards to you and yours.

Resolved != !stumped ?

Should tagging an AskMe thread "resolved" automatically remove the "stumped" tag, if it's there? [more inside]

Auto-removal of the 'stumped' tag

Could we set things up so tagging an AskMe post as 'resolved' automatically removes the 'stumped' tag?

Help me find an FPP about swarms of birds that darken the sky

A while back (more than 2 months, less than a year) I remember an FPP that linked to a few short films of birds swarming in the sky in giant flocks that nearly darkened the sky. Might have been somewhere in the Netherlands but I recall it being an annual event. The swarming activity made for amazing patterns in the sky. I don't think this was just in my dreams but can't find it through any searches of the site. Can anyone help?

Pony: front page +fave links

Any chance we can get a +fave link on the front page for each item, especially on the green? (I'm thinking Digg-style, AJAX based would be very pretty, though potentially too Web 2.0 for the likes of some Mefites...)

Anonymous Ask Metafilter Archive

"Why does eating in a restaurant make me crap my pants?" and 994 other anonymous gems from the Anonymous Ask Metafilter archive. As AskMe readies for it's 1000th anonymous question, the community is hereby polled: How has the feature worked out for the community? Do you ever wonder how some threads were resolved? And at the risk of seeming too voyeuristic, has anyone ever thought about writing fiction based on the scenario in an anonymous AskMe question?

Request: a way to mark our questions as resolved.

I'd love to see a "conclusion" feature to many of the askme questions. For instance, even if it's months later, I could go into a question I asked and mark it "concluded" and give a quick summary of what happened when I followed the advice.

Once someone marks something "concluded" it would go to its own "conclusions" RSS feed, which we could subscribe to if we want to know "the rest of the story" on many of the questions asked.

Followup etiquette on closed AskMe posts

Don't get me wrong -- I want to know how stuff on AskMe turns out. I don't think MeTa is the ideal place for that, though. What about allowing askers to post a followup in their own threads, even if they'd been closed & archived, which would put that thread on a new page, like the "fantastic posts" page we have now, which could be called "resolutions" or "how'd it turn out" or some such.

Guidance on the correct use of AskMe's [more inside] field

Uhm, everyone using [more inside] in Ask MetaFilter sort of defeats the purpose if it and looks, err, bad, does it not? Is there anything to do about it?

What about a quick way to mark best answers or solutions in askme?

It would be nice, for the sake of closure, if there was a quick way of checking what solutions were eventually chosen by those who Ask MetaFilter, after having considered the answers provided to their questions. [More inside.]
