List of MF post titles with no frills

Is it possible to have a single spaced list of MF post titles without anything else, on one page? [more inside]

a small button shaped pony

This is a very small idea/request. Would it be possible to add a button/flair/visual or text icon to things like the Free Thread and live news/megathreads (such as the ones for the ongoing Ukraine conflict) to make them visually distinct and easy to find as one scans down the front page of the Blue? I think the Free Thread has definitely taken off as an idea and the megathreads are clearly very useful, so it would be good to make it easier to spot them. [more inside]

Replacement for longform.org

I'm saddened by the demise of Longform.org. MeFi is a great way to discover longform articles, but I miss Longform's RSS feed, which was clean and concise. I'm wondering if there's some way to implement a current-longform-journalism-focused feed, or a reliable tagging mechanism that is hyper-focused on only current longform journalism. Apologies if this has been covered already. I couldn't find anything. Thanks!

Hive Mind replacing WireCutter?

This seems like a huge opportunity that the MeFi empire should jump on. was a comment made about Wirecutter becoming useless. I agree with the sentiment. Any way to make this happen?

Mefi as a Counteraction to an Upcoming "Terrible Media Age"?

Corb, in a comment about a recent news story on The Root, wrote a comment that made me think about Metafilter, its history, and its potential future. They said: "AV Club itself was a shitty substitute for Television Without Pity (spare the snark, spoil the networks). Articles were shorter and had less depth. I just keep seeing site after site die because someone felt they weren’t squeezing every last dime out. We are entering a terrible media age and I don’t know what to do about it." What if Metafilter's the answer? [more inside]

See All Books

This is the most minor problem. Fanfare has five categories in the sidebar on the right: TV, Movies, Podcasts, Books, and Special Events. The first three (TV, Movies, and Podcasts) link to the Archives page, naming their links respectively "See All TV Shows," "See All Movies," and "See All Podcasts." Although that very same Archives page has an equivalent list for Books, however, there is no "See All Books" link. Is this intentional?

download/dump of posts (not just comments)?

Is there any way for MeFites to download/export our own posts? I'm pretty sure the Comments download only gets comments, not posts. If this feature doesn't yet exist, could it go on the list of nice-to-have features? [more inside]

Metafilter Webring

Lately I’ve seen people resurrecting the Webring(!)

I was wondering if members would be interested in submitting their websites to such a metafilter webring — it would link to all sorts of nice things that people made?

Old threads and new discussions

I'm been trying to think of a non-clunky, non-pain-in-the-ass way for people to keep abreast of ongoing/current discussions in pre-existing episode FanFare threads for a given TV show, and I don't know what the answer is. [more inside]
