Pony request: unread items on the recent favourites page

Ello. Under 'http://www.metafilter.com/​home/​myfavorites' the last 30 things I favourited are shown. This is lovely, but I was wondering is it possible to have 'x comments since you last looked' show up in brackets on the recent favourites page as well? Basically the same view as the current main Mefi pages presents? [more inside]

Ctrl+enter to post/preview?

I was wondering what the community and dev team thinks about adding a ctrl+enter shortcut to post comments. It's something that's fairly common elsewhere on the web, and in my opinion it would be nice to have it here as well. Going to the mouse to click on Post Comment is not exactly a big deal, but it would be cool if there were a keyboard shortcut for those of us who are slightly mouse-averse. [more inside]

The tiniest of ponies.

When previewing an IRL post and you get an error, the error is kind of in the middle of the page and in normal text, so it's hard to see what's missing from the form. Having it at the top of the page and with IRL's alt-color beige, would help a lot.

EVERYBODY GETS A PONY!

Pony Request: a search function for MeMail. We're able to search our activity and favorites, and I'd love to be able to do the same for MeMail. I know MeMail isn't meant to replicate the features of services like Gmail, but I think this particular function would be really useful.

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.

Browser/OS stats

Question (and I may have missed where this is): Metafilter is a geeky place - out of a certain curiosity, is there somewhere to get an OS/browser/whatnot stats breakdown for visitors? If not, that would be cool (even if merely in the form of a one-off FPP).

Last comment by?

A small pony request: When I am interested in ongoing threads or participating in a discussion, I will frequently check back to see if there are new comments after the one I just posted. However, there is a time limit or something on how often the "new comment" message updates. Would it be possible / productive / desirable to add "last comment by [username]" after the "number of comments" text?

Noonereallyneedstotypeasinglewordthatsoverthirtycharactersorso.

How about a filter that limits posts from having words over a certain length? Usually it's pasted URLs, and they always break the tables and require a manual cleanup. For instance.

I'd love to change the (Metafilter) world, but I don't know what to do-ooooooo......

StylesheetPonyFilter: I wander the MeFi universe in the Plain Text theme, thus The Blue is white, The Green is white and The Grey is also white. Wouldn't It Be Nice If hyperlinks in the white version of the Blue were blue (which they are), those in the white version of the Green were green and those in the white version of the Grey were grey?

MeFi Navigator Greasemonkey script is useful

Contemplating the FeaturePony: The MeFi Navigator Greasemonkey script is frakkin' insanely useful, if only for the 'poster' and 'admin' tags (I don't use the comment navigation stuff that much). Wouldn't Safari and IE users praise the ground mathowie walks on if it got built into the system itself?

Connect MeTa threads directly to the original threads that inspired them?

It would be extremely beneficial to be able to connect MeTa threads directly to the original threads that inspired them.

When someone posts an innappropriate/poorly formatted/whatever thread, calling it out in thread gets it sidetracked, but they are unlikely to ever see the MeTa thread, and flagging for deletion isn't always the best solution. This way you could simply create a 'linked' MeTa thread, a link would popup in the initial thread (directly under headline on inside?) and discussion ABOUT the thread could take place there. Similar to the way wikipedia treats neutrality disputes, etc.

You are ineligible to post

Idea: what if the "New Post" and "New Question" links vanish-or change to say "You are ineligible to post"-when you aren't eligible? That would eliminate a lot of the "Oh lemme ax metafilter about that." ...*click*... "Sweet Lady Marmalade! I can't yet!"

Then when you're allowed again they change back to normal.

Sharing Nintendo DS Friend Codes

Hey Matt! You own a Nintendo DS, just like I do. Infact, Metafilter has several DS owners, as this question of mine revealed. The thing is, we're not playing each other online as we damn well should be. So how about adding a field or two on our preferences pages to allow us to prominently advertise our Friend Codes? It's been talked about before. Let's make it happen.

High turnover on AskMe

I've noticed that AskMefi has a high turnover rate these days, and some questions don't get answered because they age too quickly.

Suggestion: how bout we have two columns of questions instead of one? So that older questions show up next to the newest one - and have a longer life?

Feedback system for flagging so I can see that it has some result

Feedback System for Flagging: Everytime someone posts a callaout to MeTa, the usual response is "flag it and move on", which is great in theory, but there's absolutely no feedback by doing that. A page that lists everything we've flagged and the respective follow-up. (Please note, these responses could be automatically generated based on the current status of the post/comment) Examples:
Comemnt #129382 - Flagged as: Offensive - Result: Flag noted by admin but ignored.
Post #129834 - Flagged as: Duplicate - Result: Post Deleted
Post #149493 - Flagged as: Excellent - Result: Added to sidebar
I think if users could see that flagging actually has some effect, they might be less liable to whine about it in MeTa Callouts.
