When you post a FPP to the Blue, your links are automatically run through some sort of search function to see if they have been posted before. This might be, if not too site-intensive, a useful thing for comments as well, so that people don't find themselves posting the same links, with different flavor text. [more inside]
Pony Request - is it possible to automatically fix broken URLs that omit the "http://"? [more inside]
In-thread link check pony? [more inside]
Pony request: I seem to be eternally replying to something in Recent Activity, only to find I've actually responded to the wrong thread. I'm not sure I'm entirely alone in this... [more inside]
My little pony: how much work would be required to turn the "contains answers marked as best" checkmark on the front page of AskMe into a link to the first best answer?
Small request: could we have a link to our userpage (ala the "x members | You are logged in as: x / logout" seen on the mefi/ask/metatalk homepages) on post comment pages (and possibly all deeper pages) as well as on the front pages?
Minor AskMe usability gripe: Can [more inside] be a link to the thread? When a question is unanswered, the only way to get into the thread is by clicking "0 Answers." It seems more logical to click on [more inside].
PonyFilter: It's annoying to click on the same link twice in a post. How about sending the New Post form back for the user to "fix" it?
QuickPony: Any chance we can please see the My Profile link bumped up to the top navigation bar, next to My Comments and Favorites? I love the quick-and-dirty account overview, but I don't love the scroll-to-bottom, or click through to main page, click user name action. (Or too much clutter? Discuss.)
In the comment box, after clicking the link icon (or Ctrl-Shift-A), and pressing the Escape button, it shouldn't insert a "null" link, but just cancel adding the link.
New comments on category pages. I'm not marking this a bug, because I don't want to be asinine about it. [más adentro]
TinyPonyFilter: Add HTML LINK
element to MetaTalk's HEAD
content to benefit the RSS features in Mozilla
Minor request: could we get link to the new My Recent Comments
doodad on our profiles or in the headers or something (unless there is one already, and I'm just having a brain seizure)?
Wouldn't it be neat if you could link to a specific comment or post when you were adding someone as a contact. Perhaps the post/comment was a moment of infatuation or a particularly representative post. This would allow us to track and share exactly why we get that warm fuzzy feeling (or itchy, burn-y feeling) when we see certain usernames. What do you think?
Very Small Pony: Matt, would it be possible to copy the code used for the URL search on the Post A Link
page onto the Search
page, so it could be accessed even if you have posted something within the past 24 hours?
is currently only available to those of us who come to MetaTalk. Since it's probably the best thing on MeFi since the sliced-bread thread, wouldn't it be an elementary courtesy to extend the service (and information) to the blue-only crowd? Is it really so marvellous that it deserves to be kept for us aficionados
alone? Fwiw, I think we could use the extra minds and souls. Why not include a link (plus sidebar mention) on the main page? Or is it meant to be an insiders' secret? This, imho, is just wrong!
Probably been mentioned before, but how hard would it be to link check on a post to ensure no double posting? You could even mock the poor soul!
I don't know if this has been asked for before, or is even good for a "community" web site, but, does anyone think having an extra link from each front page post that cut's out all the commentary and just shows urls to sites that have been linked in the discussion - a way to look at sites without pre-judgements being put in your mind by the comments they are with?
We should be able to refer to a topic (i.e. whole of thread) using single link - in a way that will allow us to send it via email to other people who are likely to be interested, but don't use metafilter regularly.
A standard link format with fields for source, catagory, link & title, description. Reasoning inside.
I know this has been mentioned previously (but there's no search function in MetaTalk, and I'm too lazy to look the thread(s) up by hand)... Anyway, I've set my preference for links to "Open in a new window". Problem is, the new window command is only applied to the subject link on the front page... not links found elsewhere in the post, or in comments to the posts. I'd really like all links to open in a new window regardless. Is this by design? I'm I whining?
How about a bookmark for the lovely 'powered by' bar
? It'd make it even easier to point people to how cool it is.
