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]
So I've been exploring FanFare (it's great!) and I have just a few ponies. [more inside]

What is something that you wish worked differently, and how would it work?
December 13, 2018
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?

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]

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?

Could we have a books section here that's not Fanfare (for nonfiction/history/deeper reading on things discussed in FPP for instance)? [more inside]

Is there available data that shows when Metafilter and Ask Metafilter experience the highest volume of website engagement? Such as on what days and times of day are most users "on" MeFi and AskMe? [more inside]

The jump-down anchor visible on posts on mobile takes you all the way down to the tags. I imagine most people use it like I do: to get to the comment box and/or last comment more quickly. Could this be adjusted to remove the need to scroll up each time? [more inside]

OK, so I check recent activity all the time. It would be rad if I could know if any of those posts had new comments without having to scroll to the bottom of each "last ten comments". I'm open to many different implementations, but a badge on the recent activity link might be nice, but even a "no new activity since you last loaded this page you obsessive advicepig." text near the top would be nice.
