I'd like to request an expansion on the profiles feature in MetaFilter

Profiles... It just occurred to me that I need a scorecard to keep track of everyone in here. I'd like to request an expansion on the profiles feature in MetaFilter. [more]

I'd like to be able to preview posts and can the br tag be collapsed?

Someone already suggested the ability to preview posts (comments as well as new threads), so I'll second that. If it annoys people, you can make it an optional preview (preview button next to the post).

tags on carraige returns blindly, and I tend to forget this and put them in myself. I was wondering if, after interpolation, more than two br tags could automatically collapse to just two, maybe with intelligent handling of paragraph tags as well. Maybe I'm the only one that makes mistakes like that, but nobody needs anything more than two line breaks anyway.

But the post preview would probably be sufficient.

May I humbly suggest a timer for individual posts...

May I humbly suggest a timer for individual posts. Err, that isn't very clear. Lately there's been a rash of people posting 2 or three small items in a row which, imho, really thins out the collective attention on MF which leads to more sparse threads.

What if each user was only allowed to post one new topic per 20 minutes? Or any arbitrary time period really...

Perhaps this should be a feature request?

"The URL you are about to post was found in 1 other post(s)." (2000)

I'd like it if, when you're previewing a topic you're about to post, metafilter says something like:

The URL you are about to post was found in 1 other post(s).

lorem ipsum sit amet..
Go to the detail view for this result

please check the thread(s) above to make sure you're not duplicating a previous post.
