My Little Pony: Sidebar Magic

Can we have sidebar items link directly to the post or comment rather than Best Of? [more inside]

When I was your age, this space was for jokes.

I like the sidebar on the front page, and how it shows nifty stuff and contact activity. When I'm on my phone, I don't have that, and it makes me feel sad inside. Would the powers that be consider adding a line to the menu on the mobile site that would link to the sidebar content? In my head, this looks exactly like what we have on the front page, except tinier and by itself.

AskMe sidebar, please

My Little Feature Request: Paulsc had an uncommonly well-written answer in AskMe. It would be a good candidate for the AskMe sidebar, oh wait, there's no AskMe sidebar. But there could be.

I can't be the only one?

I like the new /random in the sidebar, but all I use it for is to try and find good flameouts on the grey. Could there be a /flame, so I can have something to do on a rainy day?

Meetup list in the blue

I'd like to see the meetup list on the front page in the blue, just to get bigger turnouts (and a better sense of community). I imagine there's quite a few people who don't regularly visit Metatalk, but would like to go the meetups.

Where were we going again?

Is it possible for admins or orginal posters to edit at the top of a meetup post? Like in this recent meetup thread. It's confusing to read through the whole thing and come out with no idea of whether time, date and place have been settled.

Ponyfilter

Can the meetup listings in the sidebar be kept up for a few days afterwards so we can more easily find the pictures which were taken? Or should there be a separate category for this?

Sidebar History

Sidebar: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago... 6, 7? I mean, I can type it in manually, but I figured I'd suggest it and see if enough people want it. And I'm not saying to go on indefinitely, could turn into "1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15 years ago" over time, as per mathowie's decendants' wishes.

Ask Metafilter's FAQs in a sidebar

Just an observation: the question which DSLR to buy comes around so often on the green, with the same answers usually (understandably, but predictably) given, that I'm beginning to think there ought to be a sidebar of such frequently asked questions (or maybe mathowie ought to sign up for an Adorama affiliate program).

List of posts flagged as Fantastic

Feature idea: bubbling up the really good stuff (or: this is what we'd like it all to be like) [more inside].

Askme Sidebar Hiding

Could a "hide" button be added to the new sidebar in AskMe?

page to view fantastic posts/comments?

To my knowledge, posts/comments flagged 'fantastic' only seem to decide towards sidebar announcement. How about a page where all posts flagged as such are listed? [+]

RSS for Sidebar?

Now that the sideblog is back in action, would it be possible to get an RSS feed for it? If this would involve a lot of work, just put it somewhere on the list of Ponies, but I'm wondering if, since the sidebar is powered by Blogger, there might not already be some sort of automatically generated feed that I just need to point my reader at.

Sticky meetups?

MetaFilter gatherings are common, and often planned weeks in advance. In that amount of time, the related threads are pushed off the front page. Is there a system we can work out where they become sticky? Maybe be posted on the sidebar until they happen?

Sidebar for Newbies?

Would it be possible to add a little sidebar in MetaTalk listing links to the Wiki for some of the more common questions, such as "What does '.' mean?" and "Why was my post deleted?"

Sidebar Newsfeed?

How about an AP news feed on the sidebar, Salon-style? It would both discourage boring cnn.com Newsfilter links, and encourage in-depth analysis posts from multiple sources.

Why not have some kind of "recent posts" sidebar, or the like?

Why not have some kind of "recent posts" sidebar, or the like? As it is, ongoing conversations fade out in mid-thought as they go down then off the page, as people stop checking them. No doubt someone will remark that that would be bringing Mefi closer to some kind of message board, but is that really such a bad thing?

Safari Sidebars?

I'm a big fan of Safari. Any chance of Matt, or any other programmers here, creating a MeFi sidebar for this browser?

MetaTalk is not the place for second-string MetaFilter posts

MetaTalk is not the place for second-string MetaFilter posts. (to quote gleuschk and jpoulos)

Sidebar collapse

Sidebar collapse. I think when folks were asking for the sidebar collapse to be brought back, it was not so much to get rid of clutter as it was to free up that 25% of the screen that the front page posts could run into. Even with the sidebar collapsed [and the ads remaining, they're ok with me] I still have a large blue stripe down the right hand side, making it one longass page. Is there a way to wiggle around the front page elements to have the ad present but more side-to-side room for posts, or is this just me and my mac pissing into the wind?

Use the MeFi sidebar to draw attention to recent MeTa threads?

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...

"recent comments" browsing misses interesting stuff

For the past week or so, I've been browsing by "recent comments," which seems to work the best for me. However today I switched to "date" to check out what I've been missing and was surprised to see that there was quite a bit of very interesting links that I had missed.

It seems that the really chatty topics are the ones I've been seeing, but the really interesting links were in the date filter.

Anyway to make the side-bar customizable to add the feed of date or recent comments? Not that it's all that difficult to switch between the two, but it would be nifty to be able to look at both at the same time.

Sidebar Feature Request

How about putting that nifty new "sort by comments" feature onto that nifty new sidebar feature?

Can we configure our own sidebar?

I think it would be neat if you could program the side floating panel- to be configurable- so that we could choose the links that we wanted in their or add our own- via the configuration page. I'm not a coder by any means, so I don't know how difficult it would be, but I wanted to air my idea.
