I suggest implementing a bug tracking system for MetaFilter to track all the bugs and feature requests.
You could use for example the HELPNEEDED tag for things you might need help fixing. You can set priorities on bugs so that the most important and urgent problems will be fixed first. You can set WONTFIX for features that you aren't going to implement, and that way people will know not to bug you about the issue. You can enable voting for bugs and feature requests so you'll have a better idea of where to focus your efforts, you could easily assign small issues to jessamyn, etc.

TimezonePony .... It's that time of the year again. Instead of showing the false EST/PST/etc standard timezone stamps, can the system be tweaked to either show the correct EDT/PDT/etc, or at least ET/PT/etc? Cue snarks.

"Timestamps" in "my comments": The quasi-timestamps in "my comments" are wrong. The early ones are right "This morning"/"12 Hours ago"/ "7 Hours Ago" etc.
But then at some point it seems to reset and comments from yesterday are listed as "This morning" and "4 hours ago". It looks like it's only taking time into account and not the date?

How about a proper RSS 2.0 feed? The existing .91 feed doesn't provided authors or even datestamops. Also, the existing ATOM feed
properly and doesn't work in the two RSS readers I use (NetNewsWire and Thunderbird).

Is there a way for a user to change their account's password? No pressing need or anything, just wondering, as I like to change my various passwords from time to time.

When viewing the comments a user has made, it would be nice to have the jump to the comment in this thread
links in order. That way when you can read their comments, it makes sense. Before I realized they were out of order, it was rather confusing.

Two itsy-bitsy questions and one trivial, infinitesimal footnote:
1)On MetaTalk's front page it says "There have been no links and no comments posted since your last visit"
. Since posts here aren't required to have links wouldn't it be better to say posts
or, following the wording on the posting box, threads
2)Why, when you go back to revise your new post, does the category selected always jump back to bugs
? (Some posts mistakenly attributed to bugs are impossible to find through the category archives).
Footnote: Does anyone else feel slightly disappointed when they check in on MeTa and there haven't been any new posts for what seems like ages? Is this ethically deplorable in any way?
