We have MyAsk
. Why not MyMeta? How about a tab that filters by tags. Example: ignore anything with linux or politics. Keep anything with maps or art.
Is there any way of having an overlapping system of tags to categorize these MetaTalk posts? So for 'feature requests' that could be a sub-tag of either the 'Metafilter', 'Ask Metafilter' or 'Metatalk' tags. So when I want to see what is being discussed about improving Ask Metafilter I start by selecting that tag and then start clicking the sub tags to get more specific. Finally, the reason I am asking is because I am concerned about the flooding of questions on AskMe and the thing I would do is have a separate section for technology questions as those questions seem to be at least 50% of all questions asked. Cheers.
A forlorn plea: is there any chance of reinstating on MeTa the weblog-related category? Blogroots
is just not the same - or even vaguely similar. MetaFilter is where so many bloggers hang out and, imho, discussions of blogging are part of the history and character of this place. As it is, items which would have been posted to the old MetaTalk category - such as this one
- are showing up on the blue. I doubt whether many users here have the patience and fortitude to take them all the way to Blogroots.
With the fine new interface, perhaps we could do without categories altogether. Although the taxonomy is great, I am now able read MetaTalk chronologically and it feels perfect. The general classification "about Metafilter" is enough. Plus, you get to read everything in a much more exciting way.
P.S. Although I confess to having been a sucker for Metafilter-Specific...
It's too easy to post to the wrong part of Metatalk.
Criminy ... can we at least confine our periodical links
to stories published this century?
Is anyone else noticing that the MetaFilter-specific area's post's number isn't increasing? It's been 31 for a couple of days now...
