Small pony: ongoing word count on Mefi posts

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.

Poni request

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?

non-ascii tags in posts

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.

Updating profiles

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

Someone else should do this

How about a way to offer up a suggestion for a FPP that they themselves don't feel capable of doing, like, "Hey y'know what would be a great FPP? Something about how there's all these different 'colors' of noise; white noise, pink noise, brown noise, now there's green noise, and they're all different and special but I am not a noise scientist and in fact am pretty stupid when it comes to numbers and science so maybe someone else can make a post about it so I can enjoy it." Thank you.

Pony request: MathJax

I like talking about math with other Mefites on MetaFilter. There have been several threads over the last few months in which I enjoyed the conversation, but found the lack of ability to use properly-typeset formulas really cumbersome. I don't think this should be a particularly high priority, especially considering other issues the site is working on right now, but I'd really love the ability to use MathJax on MetaFilter.

Add more space between Favourites link and Add Favourites button

On a touchscreen (iPhone XS portrait mode), about half the time I try to favourite a comment, I end up clicking through to the list of who’s favourited it. I don’t *think* I have particularly fat fingers... do other folks run into this? Any chance of adding an extra em of space there on mobile?

Pony: Option to hide "Favorited by Others" on profile?

I am trying to cut social-media-style dopamine hits out of my life as much as I can, and I have noticed myself checking in more than I'd prefer on my "Favorited by Others" count, and clicking through to see what comments I've made that are getting lots of favorites. I'd rather not do this, but it's a longstanding habit at this point, and it's been surprisingly difficult to kick it. Would it be possible to add a preference to hide the count and link?

IRL pony request: participant notification

The creator of an IRL event has the option to be notified by email when a comment is added to the post. How much trouble would it be to add notifications to those who are attending (including Maybes)? Is this something others would find useful?
