What is the official guideline on posts in thematic series? How do MeFites feel about them? [more inside]

“Confusion is an often too subtle sign of paranoia.”

Upon reading some responses in the "Shooty" post, I have a basic question that has started to bother me and I hope it is appropriate to post here. Why, when there is debate sparked over anything in general, does it seem to always point to Republican/Democrat, Race or Income? More inside:

Step 1: ask about bread Step 2: wait two weeks; Step 3: Ask about mayo. Step 4: Wait two weeks.

What is the policy on questions like this? Is ask.me the proper venue for asking questions that are serial in nature? Is helping someone through every specific aspect of their life (and at 2 week intervals) something that is condoned?

Plain text theme problem

Using the 'plain text' theme has a very small problem. In MetaTalk if you click on the category/topic of a post, the page it takes you to has the category/topic obscured by a brown box. (Slashing because sometimes it's called a Category and other times a Topic.)

What were we talking about again?

I'm a big fan of IraqFilter, but when we post new developments like this thread by Postroad, can we provide a little direction about what's supposed to be discussed? Perhaps it might lessen the flamewars/snarkyness that ensues. [more inside]

sidebar could be used for "hot" topics

Is the sidebar able to list "hot" topics that are more than likely going to be a) a double post news item of the day b) a thread that reachs say more than 80 comments or c) a user who wants to keep a thread accessible without having to remember the day, topic, or events that seem to push a link off the page and into the archives before some have a chance to comment or view the link?

Another day, another link

Serial Linker A lot of folks on MetaFilter probably post in the same genre every once in a while, but what do people feel about someone linking every day on the same topic? Clearly it's not something anyone wants to become a widespread trend; is it appropriate in any context?

Please oh please - view user's posted topics pony

Please oh please make it possible to view all of a given user's posted topics. Perhaps a link to the link on the user's profile page?
