New AskMe category: property/housing?

I've noticed an increase in AskMe comments about housing, property, landlords, housemates etc in recent weeks and months. These are currently being posted in all sorts of different categories - Work and Money, Grab Bag, Human Relations and so on - making it difficult to find them in one place. Should we add a Housing category to Ask? [more inside]

Viva quien vence... but, still...

I'm wondering if we should add a "History" category to Ask Me? I posted this today, and was surprised to find that we don't have this category choice. I wavered between "Grab Bag" and "Society and Culture" and finally went with the latter, though my impression of that category is that it's meant to address quite different, mostly contemporary questions... and checking past questions seems to affirm that it's not a great fit, though probably the best we have.

Askme Snowclones?

This is a serious, intended-for-AskMe question, but under the rules (because it is about AskMe itself) it must be asked here. So, kindly play by AskMe rules. Here goes. Various authorities claim there are only 69, 36, 20, 7, 3 or 1 possible literary plots, all the rest are just variations on the basic ones. Is it possible to categorize all MeFi questions into a limited number of generic forms? [more inside]

Plain text theme problem

Using the 'plain text' theme has a very small problem. In MetaTalk if you click on the category/topic of a post, the page it takes you to has the category/topic obscured by a brown box. (Slashing because sometimes it's called a Category and other times a Topic.)

"New comments" should be a link from category pages

New comments on category pages. I'm not marking this a bug, because I don't want to be asinine about it. [más adentro]

AskMe archives missing a way to go to older pages

When viewing a category in AskMe, it defaults to the last 30 days. Unfortunately, it seems to neglect to show the clever widget to allow one to go back further. It shows in MetaTalk's categories.

If I could filter out all the news that would be pretty nice.

Why aren't subjects categorized so I don't have to read the news more than once? I see that even here I am expected to categorize my posting. If I could filter out all the news that would be pretty nice.

Category field

We already know that each thread has an (unused) category field.

Any chance that the following process can happen:

1. Categories are decided.

2. A team then allocates each thread to a category. (Happy to do it myself)

3. sports.metafilter, politics.metafilter etc. resolve to categories.

Is there a bug in the MeTa post category options?

Uh...I know I didn't post that last thread to Bugs. Can anybody else back me up on this?
Is there any way to track if it was somehow (spontaneously?) moved, Matt?

what is specific to metafilter?

What does "topics specific to metafilter" mean, exactly? Specific to "metafilter, the codebase and website" or "metafilter, the group of people who use the mefi codebase"? Reason inside...

Pony: categories for posts

Recently there's been an awful lot of posts each day on Metafilter. This is great, except that topics I'm involved with are flying down the page very quickly, and I'm losing track of what discussions I'm in. So, I had an idea.

Now, after reading the earlier thread about 'limiting the site to 10,000 users', perhaps my idea is good. Perhaps it's bad. It's probably not implementable, but here it is anyway.

Why not allow people to choose a category for their postings? Just like Memepool does. For example.. 'Crazy'.. 'Fad'.. 'Politics'.. etc. While the front page would continue to show all posts, it would nice to filter them myself, and not have front page posts moderated by someone else (which seems likely in the future). No?
