A new theme for MeFi: Modern

Today we're unveiling a new theme option for MetaFilter. Yes, it's a new design option for MetaFilter for the first time in over a decade, which we are dubbing the "Modern" theme. The new theme is strictly opt-in; no one is being forced to use it and the Classic and Plain-text themes remain as options, so your view of the site won't change unless you want it to. To try out the new theme, select it in your preferences. There is much to explain and show off in this new design and I'll do my best to describe all the thinking that went into the process below.

Fantastic commenters will never know they're fantastic

I'm seeing a lot of great comments on the blue lately; I mark them as favorites, of course, but sometimes I flag them as "Fantastic". However, the commenter doesn't receive this feedback. [more inside]

Ideas re: what makes for an acceptable vs unacceptable "processing" Ask?

Hey all, this is my first Meta post and I hope this is an okay subject to ask for clarifications on. Could I get some ideas/feedback about what constitutes an acceptable AskMe in terms of helping the asker to process their particular situation? [more inside]

Title customization options added

As a compromise over the recent release of titles, we've added the ability to set your title font faces and sizes just like the body and byline fonts/size options on the preferences page. [more inside]

i need feedback/help and don't know if mefi is appropriate.

I'm trying to get feedback/helpers on a collaborative Google Map of bike paths in the Boston area. It's pretty small and unambitious, hardly something I've spent "a few months" on. Is this appropriate for MeFi Projects? [more inside]

More than one feedback per project please

Should it be possible to leave feedback for the same project more than once? I left Caffeine_Monkey a piece of feedback that is sure to confuse him, as it was actually meant for a different project.

Voting on Metafilter Projects?

Now that the contest is over, what is the point of having voting on Metafilter Projects? Anyone who wants to post the project to the front page can do so—no matter how many votes there are—and in most cases, having comments there instead of voting could provide the poster with valuable criticism and advice.

Is it just the worry that people will write mean things about the projects?

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.

Can I AskMe about my website?

Ok don't know if this is permissable...I'd like to AskMeFi about my own site, but not as self-promotion. I'd like build a shortlist of why it sucks and what I can do about it. Ok to do so?

baby steps

baby steps. I'm going to be redesigning things over a long period, one small chunk at a time. Up for feedback today: a new header for the sites. The goals were to make it shorter vertically, group items by activity, and to clean up things here and there. Please read along and leave some feedback [more inside]

AskMe for free graphic design?

AskMe for free graphic design? It's a good cause, but it's still a solicitation; I get plenty of those through other channels, don't really think they belong here too.

What are the economics of metafilter?

What are the economics of metafilter? I assume that everyone gets some enjoyment out of posting things of interest (in economics terms, intrinsic motivation), but what sort of extrinsic payoff motivates posters in terms of posts -- number of replies? controversy? "this is good" statements? [more]

AskMe feedbacks on design

AskMefi threads asking for critiques in design probably should be discouraged.

So today on the train into work, I came up with an idea.

So today on the train into work, I came up with an idea. Thoughts? Feedback? Would you write for such a thing if asked?
