Just want to bring up an idea for discussion: gently discouraging walls of text in Ask Metafilter (without doing anything to prohibit) ... through greater emphasis in the top text on the page, and UI guidance after a certain word count (maybe via a change in the text input box color background).

It'd be neat if a FF post could be bumped back into view (either on the main page or maybe in a sidebar). When a sequel is released, we could bump the previous films... When a new season is about to come out of a show, we could bump the season posts of previous seasons... When a film that has been in theatrical release hits streaming we could bump it... When a new version of a previously released film gets a release, we could bump that... [more inside]

It seems to me that the change has been a positive good for Metafilter. Change being the doing away with the Megathreads. Even the sidebar has stopped moving. What are your thoughts?

I tend to accrue some Brave (browser) rewards. They seem to have a cash value. Would/should/could I donate to Mefi? For me its just US$0.50 but its still found money I'd gladly forward on a continual basis.

I would like to discuss the benefits of having content from all subsites directly displayed on the front page. Great stuff created by fellow Mefites gets overlooked for now good reason other than the treachery of our lazy lizard brains. [more inside]

Often there are FanFare posts which don't mention where the movie or TV show can be watched - whether it's a streaming service, broadcast TV or only in theaters. A number of times, I've had to do web searches to find where I can watch something. Sometimes, a tag lists where to watch, but it's certainly not done consistently. Can a "Where to watch" field be added to the Show Information? [more inside]

Since the site suggests you move content from the question to extended explanation once it hits 100 words, would it be possible to add a widget that shows you how many words are in your question currently (like Twitter does for character count)? That would have the added benefit of being able to warn a user when they are reaching their word limit within the 'post' page rather than requiring a click through to the 'preview post' section.

So, I made an FPP. Immediately after I hit Post, I noticed a glaring spelling error. There does not seem to be an edit window for posts that have been posted. I find this unfotunate. Can there be an edit window for them?

Small pony/nitpick: I tried to add a tag to my post about the Chilean protest movement with the text 'Piñera', the name of the president we're protesting against, and the system says: One of your tags couldn't be added because it contained non-ASCII characters or punctuation. It's 2019, we can handle unicode in tags and shouldn't assume the wide variety of human experience can be reduced to 26 letters.

Okay, this is totally stupid but it keeps bothering me. I have a lot of trouble updating my profile picture. [more inside]
