So, I made a post
last week and now the main link (the only one above the "more inside") is broken. It's a youtube video that was apparently removed by the copyright holder. What is normally done in these situations? Do y'all summarily delete? Ignore? Is it at all possible (or even worth it) to re-work the post? [more inside]

I am the MetaFilter pintern (paid intern) Dom, and would love to hear any funny stories the Mefi community has about breaking bones, in order to keep the boss's spirits up while healing from his scaphoid fracture. [more inside]

Is something weird going on with metafilter today? Sometimes I can't get to any of the pages ("Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.metafilter.com"), and sometimes it's just metatalk or my own profile. I don't think I've got through to my own profile page in about six hours now, but the other pages are up and down.
Is it just me?

MeFi Navigator and other Metafilter scripts are (I think) broken. But, merry christmas! [more inside]

While reading through this FPP
, I noticed that ericbop had tagged it "*$," and decided to click on the tag to see what other posts shared that tag. It didn't so much work.
A little URL manipulation showed that $ works fine, but anything with a * in it seems to break.

Yesterday when I visited MeFi for the first time, I got "no links and no comments posted since your last visit." I figured it was some momentary glitch. But the same thing happened today, so I'm wondering if anybody else has this problem. When I go to MetaTalk and AskMe, it has the correct number of new posts/comments. (Firefox 220.127.116.11 on Windows XP.)

C'mon. Give us the search secret. When I plugged a link for a post I wanted to make into the search field, nada. But when I composed the post, I got a flag of the prior post. What gives? [more inside]

When this post
shows up in Recent Activity, the long small-text quote gets truncated, the <small> tag is never closed, and the rest of Recent Activity is rendered small.

Uploading songs to mufi is maybe broken? Or maybe it is just me?

Is it just me, or has the Blue been replaced by a default apache loading page?

So, I was all set to take the survey which is mentioned at AskMe (right-hand side, under the list tags/post block
"MetaFilter Readers. Support this site and its advertisers by participating in a brief survey: questionmarket.com."
Unfortunately, this is the result when clicking on the link: "The website you're looking for cannot be found. The website may no longer exist, or may have moved."

The map portion of jobs isn't loading. The job location of this post
seems to be the cause.

Why is all of MetaFilter in italics all of a sudden? The first two posts on the page are fine, but then everything afterwards is in italics for me, even the posts from yesterday that weren't in italics earlier this morning... I've had a few drinks tonight, but not that many drinks...

For over a year or so I've had a very handy java script application in my toolbar called "Detect Deleted Metafilter Threads" that finds the hidden axed threads. In the last few weeks it stopped working. Does anybody know why or if there is a new working version?

Lately when I try to remove a favourite, I get this error message: URL is malformed: can't remove as a favorite. This has only been going for a couple weeks, I think. Perhaps it could be fixed.

When checking any given user's favorites
page, and if it's a song
from MeFi Music that the person has favorited, going to the date/time stamp for that song post results not in arriving at the post, but rather with the message: "Error: File not found". Now, I see there was a thread concerning a problem with favorited comments
from MeFi Music, so maybe this problem is just something still awaiting the necessary laying on of hands
from # 1?

User specific text formating in the My Favorites Tab is borked in ask.me and metatalk and perhaps elsewhere.
