I was wondering what the community and dev team thinks about adding a ctrl+enter shortcut to post comments. It's something that's fairly common elsewhere on the web, and in my opinion it would be nice to have it here as well. Going to the mouse to click on Post Comment is not exactly a big deal, but it would be cool if there were a keyboard shortcut for those of us who are slightly mouse-averse. [more inside]
I am not sure how elusive the Metafilter moderator GUI screenshot
might be to the average MeFi user, but I have always wondered about it's efficiency and I was pleasantly surprised when I finally caught a (blurry) glimpse of it during Matt's SxSW 2011 talk: Lessons from 11 Years of Community
It's a long way to the TOP

We periodically have problems with remote ad servers hanging up page loading on MetaFilter and we'd like to tweak the homepage layouts to make this impact much less of a problem. However, I'm not sure how it will impact the greasemonkey script deleted post type features because the code will change a bit on the home page. [more inside]
Question : why does [more inside] still exist? What did it ever do in the first place? [more inside]
Improper grammar on the Ask MeFi New Question page when you've already posted a question?
You may ask another question in: 1 days, 5 hours, 55 minutes, 57 seconds.
I think so. It would be nice if this could be fixed.
A few usability ponies for MoFi, please? I'd offer to code but I'm only so so and reluctant to stir unknown code.
Alternatively, anyone have mobile navigation tips or app advice?

For the month of November, we're going to try an experiment with how favorites are displayed. [Note: if this whole experiment is driving you crazy, here's a note on reverting the changes.] [more inside]
Here's a couple of requests concerning the Recent Activity page and one for errors when previewing. [more inside]
More inside everywhere! [more inside]
Removing a favorite is hard! [moron inside]
How about a subtle indicator of first posts and new commenters? I think I mentioned this before in the comments to a thread, but as long as we're all on the Pony Express and there's no contentious threads on the blue, this seems like the time to bring it up properly. [more inside]
Any chance there could be a bulleted add-on to the "Doh!" page that states you've posted an AskMeFi question within a week by telling me how much time left I have to wait until I can ask again? I could swear I only have seconds left, but there's no way to tell.
I used to enjoy surfing MeFi members' sites by using the Links, links, links! page
but it seems to have been non-functional for about a year and a half (data is out of sync with user pages and no new members listed since January 2004).
Matt, any plans to resurrect this feature to include the newer members (and possibly get the info in sync?)
When posting a question to AskMefi or a thread on MetaTalk, the preview button says "Preview the Link." Should it say "Preview the question" or "Preview the post" instead? (Is no nit too small for picking?)
