Seeing the thread on letterpress
, I thought to seek out other MeFites and also let them know how to find me in GameCenter.
We have a thread here
about this, but I would like to request a pony in the form of adding GameCenter to the Social Apps section of the user profile.

Small feature request: Can we have B
buttons in the Personal Info portion of the Edit Profile Page? It would make it slightly easier to edit that section.

Super minor pony request: the option to add a This Is My Jam updating widget to profiles? [more inside]

We can browse users' favorited posts/comments via their profile pages pretty easily. So, I'd like the same functionality when it comes to "best answers": ability to click on the number of "best answers" given to a user, and see which of their answers have been marked as such. I figure something as obvious as this would have been built in by now, so why ain't this pony prancing? [more inside]

Is it possible to sort or filter 'users near me' by fields besides distance? Such as 'number of comments/favorites/posts' or 'since last activity' or anything else, really.

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?

I've got a feature that I'd LOVE to see added, largely driven by the number of "I just finished reading this, what should I read next posts" ... a set of fields on our profile pages where we can add a book that we've recently read/enjoyed (perhaps by ISBN?), followed by a comments box. That way, members could build their "reading histories" over time, and they'd be available to the rest of the community.
I realize there are plenty of stand-alone sites that do just this, but I'd love to see it integrated into MeFi, simply because I'd be very interested in checking in from time to time to see what certain posters are reading these days. We all kinda get to know each other over time, and there's an unusually high percentage of very literate people on this site.
(Forgive, please, if this has been requested before.)

I have an idea that popped into my head while I was reading this
Sometimes it comes up that people need/want to ask more than one question that warrants the use of AskMefi within the 2 week period. How about something in your profile where you could post semi-smallish questions + tags? These wouldn't be posted to the main page, but if someone had a similar question that they want to ask, these other smallish questions could come up in a tag search. Then, when the second searcher asks their question, maybe have something that pops up in the first person's profile next to their smallish question to alert them that a somewhat related question has been asked.
Note: I have no idea if this is one of those things that seems absolutely stupid or if it is too difficult to code or whatever. (I hope that "feature requests" was a good place to put this, even though it is probably nonexistant on anyone else's radar screen.)

How about creating including in each user profile a discussion thread, so that we can have a friendly conversation with and about
the user whose profile we are viewing?

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.)

Tags: User profiles show "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter posts" -- which is neat!, but would it maybe be really neat if there were a "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter answers
"? I know that what I've asked about and what I've answered to are in pretty different realms.

I think that in the profile pages, the answer count for Ask MetaFilter should exclude the user's own comments in their own questions.

My Little Pony: show the date that a user last stopped by on their userpage, right underneath the "Member Since" line. This should be visible only to logged-in Mefites.

Is there any way to make it possible to choose between the map/lat-long feature and the zipcode list or list without a map? [mi]

Has anyone ever come up with a method or numbering scheme that would allow the "Users Near This User" option to work for non-US members? If not, could something be developed? (For example, are there unused Zip code numbers that could be designated to major world cities, regions or countries and which would then allow me to see other Canadians who live in my city or at least province?)

Can we get a listing (in a members profile) of the number of projects a member has posted on Projects.Meta? Something similar to "oddman has posted 1 link and 208 comments to MetaFilter."

Searched and didn't find any reference to this, but it would be interesting to see a list of users' most-used tags on their user pages..

Metafilter is the biggest site that I can edit a page (my user page) on. I'd like to have "I am the [my name] that went to so and so school, and so and so high-school and did so-and-so" so that if someone googled my name looking for me, they could find that. However, userpages are marked NOINDEX for robots, for to stop villians from using google to harvest stuff, I assume. Given that it would be trivial to write a script to go through all the user pages and snarf anything, and given that these are The Internets, is there a reasonable expectation that an email address or other information you put on a publicly viewable page will *not* be harvested? Doesn't everyone have a spam-catcher address for this purpose?

How about adding some mechanism whereby we Canadian users (and/or further abroad, but I don't know how complex that could get) could join the "Users near this user" crowd? Obviously we would have to provide postal codes, but the mechanism must exist, since it is used on several other site.
As far as integrating it with the US one, well, I don't know if that would be possible, let alone plausible, but it'd be a nifty addition.

Are we adding stats for AskMe to a user's info page? That is how I mostly keep track of threads in which I am usually only marginally involved. If this has been covered before I openly apologize.
