Last week we tested a new feature that would let people add notes to their flags. We listened to your feedback and incorporated many suggestions. You can try out the new version in this thread. [more inside]
We're testing out a new way to flag posts and comments that lets people include a note to moderators if they'd like to. It's enabled for this thread only so you can see how it might work. [more inside]
Why don't we have in-line video for non-members? I typically avoid sending posts with great videos in them to (like this) to non-members because they will just see a wall of text without being able to play videos in-line. Would it be possible to add the in-line video player for everyone who visits metafilter?
Can I get some confirmation that it's just me or not? On my iPad 1 and iPhone 4 (software version 5.0 on both) the inline video player displays incorrectly. [more inside]
Pony Request: It would great to have a thread hiatus switch oriented along temporal vectors. [more inside]
What happened to the pony we named "Wildfire" -- i mean, the "x new" feature? Gone already?
Pony request: "Load New Comments" for Mefi threads, at least on mobile. Pretty please? [more inside]
"Load new comments" for MeFi mobile? Especially for tragic and topical threads. [more inside]
Pony request: Can we add the inline Youtube feature to all subsites? [more inside]
Is anyone else hearing the sound from youtube videos played using the spiffy in-page viewer, but not actually seeing the video or player? [more inside]
Why is it that i keep losing my settings for in-line youtube? It seems like whenever i change my change anything in my profile, it works, and then a few days later, the embedded youtube links are gone again. Is this a known bug or what?
iPhone-y pony please: a way to supress the automatic inline comment preview to mitigate typing lag. [more inside]
Bug/Feature Expansion Request: YouTube links in MetaFilter's [more inside] don't display the optional embed icon. [more inside]
A spiffy solution to the inline-images ban (if you use Firefox). [more inside]
Feature Idea: adding a PDF viewer? I recently installed a firefox plugin that redirects all PDFs to an inline viewer. For instance, check out this post today and then look at the PDF in docufarm. On windows, I hate waiting for Adobe's PDF plugin to load and on a mac I hate downloading and then opening in a viewer (and having to delete from my desktop later). This seems really simple and easy, and you can download anything you want to keep. Sometimes good posts hinge on a PDF, and this would make that easier to read online. Does it make sense to move PDF links over to docufarm?
Without complaining about a specific thread, Matt, can we get "flagging" to be inline/ajaxy, as a drop down, rather than the press, choose, new page, back to thread? The way that the favorites work?
I finally fixed this, I gussied up the preferences page (more readable, easier to use), and I added inline magical youtube video streaming, which mostly works (enable it then click the icons you see on posts). Full explanation of the YouTube feature.
A possible solution to end the "We demand inline images back!" versus "We don't really mind" MetaWars that are tearing at our very souls...[much more inside]
Come on do we need this type of trolling here? (more inside)
NSFW inline image. Come on, The Jesse. What's next, diarrhetic elephants?
Am I the only one who does not care for the recent upsurge in images being posted to threads? I hate to sound like my grandfather yelling at the kids in his yard, but it really irks me. I come here to read, not look at stupid images of Barney, fox medals and purses. Although, looking for the specific examples of the last two, maybe Matt has been deleting them?
