Is it possible to gift someone a membership? I have a friend sorely in need of a MeFi lifestyle awakening, but haven't seen a way to make this happen.
AskMeFi should consider making a separate section for travel/location questions. Unless I'm going to be in London (Istanbul, Des Moines), I don't have an interest in the question or the answer.
Feature request: onsite search is back
, and one enhancement I'd like to see is the ability to search through my comments only. [more]
Matt: Would it be possible to implement a "watch thread" feature? With so many posts now there are some I really don't care to follow while others I'd like to check back on often and have them at the top when I log in or switch views. The sort by most or recent comments doesn't quite do the job in this instance.
I posted this in another thread, but since you can't see new posts on MetaTalk, I decided to post it here. Would it be a good idea to list recent MetaTalk threads in a section of the right sidebar?
Also: would dates be better than days for right sidebar posts (7/27/01 instead of Friday)? Kind of like filepile
. It's hard to tell how stale the news is with just days...
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]
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?
