Cooped up because of reasons, and need something to distract yourself? Spend a little time with Uncle Mefi's Big Book of Beans [PDF], a collection of paper and pencil activities for MeFites of all ages. Word puzzles! Coloring! Money counterfeiting! Graduate-level logic problems! More coloring! [more inside]
tl;dr: is there anywhere i can see every post I've ever "added to activity", or does the record of such posts get deleted at some point? [more inside]
I have questions about the rate of increase in commenting over this year's U.S. presidential election period. [more inside]
Can we have an "add to activity" button on the front pages like we do for favorites? If so, what should it look like? Discuss.
We have a tab to sort Popular Posts, based on favorites. I would find use in a Most & Least Active tab (each side of that for different reasons), based on number of comments.
Would it be possible to auto-add new Fanfare posts for specific shows to our "Recent Activity" page? [more inside]
Today we're rolling out a new feature that allows you to add a thread to Recent Activity even if you haven't commented in it. [more inside]
Recent Activity is very close to Best Of with my fast but erratic fingers. Best Of goes to a different page. Do you think it would work better if Best Of was moved to the end of the top row after Random to avoid this, or is it truly just me? [more inside]
The activity pages for each user put the last thread commented in first on the page, but within each thread the comments are in chronological order. I think it would make more sense, and be more intuitive, to have both the thread and the comments in reverse chronological order. This would mean reading down the page would take you deeper into history until you came to the next thread. [more inside]
Can we have a "follow thread" button? [more inside]
Feature request: "last active on:" or "active member" field on user profile page [more inside]
Why can't I jump directly to a comment in a thread from the "activity" page? [more inside]
Could the favorites pages reflect the italicization of the original comments? [more inside]
My front page contact sidebar is no longer showing posts by contacts that have received the threshold of 12+ favorites, plus other odd behavior. [more inside]
Pony request: number users logged on and when user last logged on. [more inside]
Pony request: the ability to collapse threads in Recent Activity. [more inside]
Pony: You know how on the "/activity" page there's a dropdown menu labeled "Showing activity from:", and you can choose from different subsites? It would be swell if this dropdown and site-selection appeared on the "/activity/myfavorites" page too. [more inside]
Lacking confidence, I will not call this a pony. It's just a suggestion: how about setting that optionally removes moderators from the "contact activity" sidebar? I adore jessamyn, and many of her answers deserve to be favorites/best answers, but due to her high-profile here, my list has become a digest of jessamyn's activity, which crowds out all my other contacts. (This only affects people who have moderators as contacts.)
Would it be possible to have a search box on Activity subpages -- in other words, a search function that limits itself to a single user's comments or posts? [more inside]
My Little Pony: On the Recent Activity page, next to the link "(remove from activity)" could we also have an "(end)" link that will scroll to the last item using relative anchor tags? [more inside]
My little pony request: "oldest" and "newest" links on the comment/post activity pages.
Pony request: Can we have contact activity on the green? [more inside]
Foolish consistency pony. [more inside]
Bookmarks, placeholders, whatever you want to call them...is there a possibility for a better way, built into the site, super please? [more inside]
Is MeFi getting less international? This is entirely based on subjective impressions but it seems like we’re seeing a lot less posts outside of regular US waking hours. Is this just something that happens every 4 years because of all the election posts?
Something weird is going on with the Sarah Palin thread and "Recent Activity" [more inside]
Pony: Can the recent activity page topics include a link to "xx new" just like the front page? [more inside]
the new contacts page is leaving me wanting... [more inside]
I have some questions about contact activity. [more inside]
There ought to be a way to undo the "(remove from activity)" button on the Recent Activity page, since commenting anew doesn't do it.
Pony request: More best answers in my activity sidebar! [more inside]
User activity search is available on profile pages. [more inside]
Littletinyponyfilter: could it be possible to have the sidebar links on the front page for contact activity work slightly differently? [more inside]
Would it be totally server-juice-draining to provide a user-specific Contacts' Recent Activity RSS feed?
Two issues with "recent activities" the Secret Quonsar post no longer shows up in my recent activities page. It used to and I think the behavior changed when the thread was changed to a meet-up style thread. Also the favorite interface shows up by each comment in recent activity, but not the flag interface. Is this by design?
Did the recent changes to "Recent Activity" make it really inefficient? It takes forever to bring up that page now. [more inside]
I wanna pony: Could the Recent Activity page include a link to the new activity in a thread? [more inside]
My blackberry will no longer display the "Recent Activity" page for about the past month. [more inside]
Recent Activity feature request. [more inside]
Whoop de doo! You added a contact! [more inside]
The recent contact activity on the sidebar is shit hot. [more inside]
We just launched contacts activity (looks like this, also on the sidebar of the front page showing the most recent 10 things). More explanation inside. [more inside]
Pony request: being able to favorite comments from the Recent Activity page? [more inside]
I was digging through my "Activity" and discovered that, in Safari, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" opened the next page in a new window. Clicking "Older" or "Newer" in that window opens yet another new window. And so on... Weirdly, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" in Firefox opens the pages in new tabs. Repeatedly.
I’m MetaFilter user 250, which makes me officially oldschool, but: I very rarely post on any branch; all my old posts are terrible (I checked); my recent posts on the blue are extremely conservative to avoid being terrible like the old ones (many are obituaries); and I pretty much live for AskMe. I write a ton of things on my own sites, but I never really manage to write very much of use on the various Metas. This at least is my feeling. I won’t insult anyone’s intelligence by asking “Is it really OK just to read MetaFilter?” Of course it is. I am just wondering how many other early members really, truth be told, never got the hang of front-page posts and other high-profile “content.” I’m saying this after reading through the archived contributions from some new people (with userIDs 40 times higher than mine), who are way the hell better at it. “We can’t all good at everything”? Or what? What is the right way to react to this?
I once found (and bookmarked) this page of all of chococat's music. I like it because it has the little flash player, so I can listen to all of his tunes. How do I get to the same kind of page for other MeFi Musicians? I've tried looking on members' profile pages, but the link to all of their songs goes to the music parts of their Activity pages. Thanks.
There's a minor bug in the activity page. It says "Displaying comments 1 to 50 of 490" while my profile page says I have 507 comments. Perhaps it's printing the number of total threads in which I've commented instead of the total of comments I've made?
So I noticed that comments I've made in a posts which are subsequently deleted don't show up in my profile's activity...
