"similar questions" as a search tool

When you post a question in AskMe, on preview, you're shown similar questions and asked whether you've seen those. Is there a way to open that functionality up as a search tool? [more inside]

How does it feel?

Just wanted to call attention to an AskMe that really takes you on a roller-coaster ride -- opening with sadness, stopping off at beauty, providing lots of warm fuzzies throughout, stopping off for a surprising dollop of disgust on the way to inexplicable hilarity (ymmv), and ending up being a great reference point for anybody in a relationship.

Question about deals: Bad deletion

How was the AskMe about "your favorite frugalities" chatfilter? Seemed like a legitimate question to me with some decent, interesting answers. Bad deletion.

Pride in AskMetafilter, due to questions like this

To know that people will post questions like this, and that other people -- strangers -- will help as they have...I hope Matt still is able to steal a few minutes now and then to take some pride in what he's created.

False accusations lead to murder, bring to mind askme

Dude's girlfriend tells him she was raped, and names the attacker. Dude flies into rage, goes and kills the man, and buries the body off in the woods somewhere. Girlfriend was lying. Apropos of the AskMe from a couple days back.

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.

mathowie uses Flickr to ask a question

Hey, there's a new competitor to Ask Metafilter that looks like it might be good.

AskMe thread about useful software for troubleshooting

There was an AskMe thread today about essential software to take on tech support calls to loved ones' computers over the holidays. It got deleted, I assume because the question's been asked and answered a couple of times. (+)

There are a couple of threads going in AskMe dealing with 'net addiction workarounds..

There are a couple of threads going in AskMe dealing with 'net addiction workarounds...Can they be combined into a single thread? Because I can't stop clicking back and forth between them!

Adding tagging to Ask Metafilter?

So there's roughly 8,000 questions now in AskMe (# of June questions x 11 months).... May I humbly request an update on the tagging project, or any other ponies that could help make this the great resource it's screaming to be? And has any more thought been given to how metadata could be added to the questions already in the db?

exemplary answer on the US Foreign Service

Not that there's a lot of State Department material around these parts, to be diplomatic about it, but croutonsupafreak has posted an exemplary answer to an AskMe query on how to join the U.S. Foreign Service. Check it out: he just keeps giving and giving.

Men, women, and relationships

What are some good community sites, other than AskMetafilter, where people can intiate discussions on topics like this one? It's a good question in a bad place, IMO.

Nice answers in Onion Askme

Ask MeFi's finest hour. Enough to bring tears to my eyes.
