Foreign language links

There's a wonderful celebrity meltdown happening in Paris right now. I could put together an interesting post with basic summaries in English, but the best links would be in French. Does MetaFilter have a policy on non-English links? My thoughts are to provide them, and offer an English translation of one or two key paragraphs. (I would think this would have come up before, but didn't find one in the FAQs or through searching, but I might have missed this).

A suggestion for multi-link posts

My God, it's full of links!

Do we know what post has the largest number of links ever? I would imagine this current post would be a contender.

SLFPP

Sometimes a big block of text with multiple links is appropriate for a post, sometimes some short descriptive text and a link and sometimes really all that is required is a single link. However it seems that in recent Meta posts the later gets short shrift, so with that in mind: Single link posters of Mefi, keep up the good work!

Previous and Next Links While Browsing by Tag

When browsings by tag the only page nav links are numbers which takes careful aim to hit on a Nexus 7. "Previous" and "Next" links would greatly ease finger-based navigation.

Linky Pony: URL search for previous postings

Hi- I'm much more of a Green user than a Blue user. However, I came across an article that might be interesting for FPP submission that was published in December.

I realized that I didn't really have any way of finding out whether this particular article had been posted before, without knowing the keywords that someone might have used to describe it.

Might it be possible to create a 'search by url' function, either in the 'new post' page or somewhere else, to be able to paste in a url and see whether it's been linked to on MeFi ever? It seems like this might help cut down on duplicates (especially if it was part of the new post submission process). ...or am i missing something super obvious?

Best Stuff AskMe?

Some time ago (at least 2-3 years), there was an AskMe about "the best website for reviews of consumer products" or something like that. One answer featured a blog/forum meant entirely for reviews of headphones. Anyone remember either the thread or the site? It was orange/tan and very minimalist. Possibly spun off SomethingAwful.

Deadpan links to satire sites considered harmful

The politics threads contain lots of comments that are single links to news articles. Also people post links to satirical sites like The Onion, which is fine by me. It seems to have become a thing to post the latter links as if they were real, though, with no prefatory "Satire:" or "Onion:" or what have you. I personally find this irritating, so I was wondering what the community consensus was. [more inside]

Malformed URLs get "fixed" in a weird way.

I've noticed that links that are incorrectly written seem to lead back to the thread rather than to the (usually easily guessable) URL. Is it possible to modify the behavior to enable the links to (usually) point to the right place? [more inside]

Dodgy link needs to go.

Why is the second link to this post still up? Several people have mentioned problems with it, including myself, yet the link still remains. Maybe I'm missing something here, but I think that the link should be axed since its absence won't really affect the rest of the post. Or is this just something that is allowed? [more inside]

Stop click and listen

I seem to post a lot of FPPs that revolve around podcast or other audio content these days, and It's gotten me curious... how often do you stop and listen to the content in links of that kind? Is it more or less likely than the chances you would watch a video?

Help with links

I'm really sorry, but I am nowhere near as computer savvy as the rest of you. Could someone please explain to me (with small words; talk to me like I'm four) how to make links? Possibly relevant: I'm never on a real computer, I only have an iPhone. (yes, weird, I know.)

News feed for comment links on mefi

A lot of good links on the blue, green and grey. But some of the better links are buried in the comments section of ask mefi, or even front page. Is there any easy way to have a list of all of the links on mefi as they get posted in comments section come up in a news feed? [more inside]

Add a Link. Scroll Down. Add a Link. Scroll Down. Repeat Ad Infinitum.

Extremely minor pony request: After I use the "link" button in data entry boxes on "Create a New Post" pages, the view shifts to the very beginning of the text in the box. (The scroll bar goes all the way back to the top.) I tend to create posts which have a lot of links in them that fill up those boxes quickly. To find my place after creating a link, I then need to scroll down within the box. Would it possible to not have that happen? Can the cursor and view be left at the end of the link that has just been added instead? [more inside]

A way to create deeper links to NY Times Articles

Treatment of links to previous comments in the same thread.

Have you guys considered checking submitted comments/answers for links to previous comments/answers (via a number/hash sign fragment identifier ) in the same thread, and converting such instances to links that would instantly "jump" to the comment rather than reload the entire page? In addition to increased convenience for readers, I suspect such a change might significantly decrease service costs for large threads (like the recent MetaTalk thread approaching 1500 comments).

Stronger mustard

Would it be possible to crank up the contrast between read and unread links in the "Contact Activity" column? Often half of the words are highlighted and it's a very crowded small space. I have no idea if it can be done easily and if not, I can still squint.

Links for the Memories

The welcome-back message on the front page reads 'x links and y comments posted since your last visit' (except, y'know, with numbers). But most posts contain more than one link. Would it be better to have it read 'x posts and y comments'? There's probably a downside I'm not seeing.
