Strike that, reverse it?

Deleted posts can be flagged but not favorited. Shouldn't it be the other way around? [more inside]

Determining "D'oh!" draft delay

Would it be possible to create draft FPPs before the end of the 24-hour delay? In other words, you would get the D'oh!/"you have already posted a link in the past 24 hours" page after hitting publish instead of when you click on New Post. I think the 24-hour delay is a good thing but it's intended to prevent people from posting not writing. Changing the order would allow people to check HTML formatting and link accuracy earlier in the writing process if they want to post on back-to-back days. Aside from changing the back end of the publishing process (which I know nothing about and may very well be insurmountable) would it add additional work or issues for the mods over time? Is this something that other people who post FPPs would like? [more inside]

Would others find it helpful if it was easier to report a post?

Do others want the ability to Report a post (on Metafilter or Ask) without actually clicking into it first?

Pony: Small Fix to Classic Theme on Mobile

The classic theme on mobile doesn't make it easy for me to make a post in any of the subsites. I have to switch to standard so I can access the new post link, then switch back to continue my mobile responsive experience. Is anyone else experiencing this? May I request a pony that would make this more readily accessible like it is in the other themes please? Thank you!

Pony - link to active threads no longer on the first page

As a frequent reader and occasional commentator on the Brexit threads, it's always seemed odd to me that we have a sidebar dedicated to US politics threads - and who would be masochistic enough to want to read the megathread from three iterations ago?? - but we don't have this functionality for other similar, comment-heavy threads that run on beyond their time on the front page. Could we change the US politics sidebar to instead reflect all threads with a longer lifespan? [more inside]

An impatient pony: queuing FPPs?

I find that a lot of why I don't post as many FPPs as I used to is that I prefer to post them in the earlyish morning, although I might write them at other times, and in the afternoon I wind up going "well, I'll just submit it tomorrow." I also tend to get into spates of writing FPPs, and when I've just submitted one is (bar none) the time most likely for me to get excited and want to write another one. I would love the ability to be able to submit my FPP of the day before the 24-hour delay is up, so that it will be posted either at a time of my choosing or else when the 24-hour delay has ended. I think this would be something that would make posting FPPs easier, at least for me. Thoughts?

Ask MeFi - follow up edition

I'm sure that I'm not alone in wondering how things work out in the case of particularly interesting Ask.MeFi posts. [more inside]

Fanfare Images?

A fair amount of the time, when I post something a little lower profile on FF, it does not properly load the poster. This is particularly true in the case of films. Is there a way we could verify the poster image (and/or upload one if one doesn't autoload) while making the post?
