Is it just my display, or is everyone seeing the latest FPP in the blue as being posted July 6?
Doesn't make sense unless MetaFilter is coming from the South Pacific.

Pony: All posts by user suchandsuch tagged soandso? As it is, on a user's posting page, there's a list of frequently-used tags, but if you follow the links, you get all
posts so tagged, when what you might expect (and even, in some cases, want) is just that user's posts so tagged.

I'm now allowing a sort by most commented to, and it goes back as many days as you set in your preferences (or 7 days by default). This option is not cookied though, I didn't see the need, since it's more of a view than a permanent sort type. So if you go into a thread, then click the Metafilter graphic or home link, you'll go back to whatever default sort you were last cookied to. Is that confusing enough? Just use it, if you find errors or wish it did something more, say something here.
The other new sorting method, by My Comments, looks into the database for all the threads you participated in, over the past few days (as many as you show on the front page). Like the other method (most commented), this one does not get cookied, because it's more of a temporary view.
When I first hit metafilter, I view by date, if I see something interesting, I comment. Later that day, I might check most recently commented to see where the action is, and then I might hit "my comments" to see what's happened on the threads I left comments in.
I can easily take off the date restrictions on both options, so it's more of a "all time" done only 20 at a time, but I'm going to leave these as is before I add two more new options.

Um, whoops. I think I found a bug. Click "post a comment" on the main page, and then "post a topic" on the top nav, and it goes to MetaTalk, instead of the main blog. Sorry bout that.
