Feature request: When you preview a question on the green, you're shown five similar, previously asked questions. That's really helpful, and often eliminates the need to ask the question. But the anonymous-ask preview page does not do that. Can it?
Should tagging an AskMe thread "resolved" automatically remove the "stumped" tag, if it's there? [more inside]
I'd like to talk a little bit about using AskMeFi but not MetaFilter. [more inside]
A little shmoopy for y'all [more inside]
I submit that it's not necessary to identify yourself as a special snowflake in your AskMe question. May we attempt to nip this growing meme in the bud before it gets too annoying? [more inside]
Just to engage in a probably-futile disagreement with cortex's decision here. Yes, granted, I understand not wanting to get into the classifieds business. But this isn't trying to use Mefi instead of craigslist [more inside]
Suggestion for community adoption of a particular AskMe tag? [more inside]
I'm looking for a story about a person who slept with their best friend who was having trouble finding a woman, but regretted it because the friend lost their confidence as a result. It was in askmefi.
Formal AskMe Followup Posts? [more inside]
A MeFite with no previous history on the site asked us to choose between (what many of us felt were) two rather bad choices based upon a potentially faulty assumption. Chatfilter ensues. [more inside]
Temperature differences as a deal breaker, serious or not? [more inside]
The actual subject of a seemingly obscure painting identification question, turns up in the thread with THE answer.
What is it with (US) mefites and lack of health insurance? [more inside]
Would it be possible to expand the mobile menu on Ask to include posts by category and/or tags? [more inside]
The number of anonymous questions, as a percentage of all AskMe questions, has been rising steadily over time [13 out of 100 today]. We were sitting around talking about this over email and what limits we could implement, when we figured maybe we'd just try to talk about it instead.... [more inside]
I thought AskMe questions about illegal activities were against the guidelines? Is vandalism not an illegal activity?
Does anyone have an AskMe they're not using? [more inside]
What are your favorite threads and comments about helping people help themselves? [more inside]
Idea for timing on Askme [more inside]
Is anyone else concerned about using nice, otherwise usable gmail usernames for throwaway email accounts? [more inside]
I have some lingering discomfort with the outcome of the epic Russian Girls Possibly Rescued from Trafficking threads, but the initial Metatalk thread is closed up. [more inside]
What do the mods do with AskMe posts that aren't anonymous, but really should be? [more inside]
This question made me wonder: how common is it for friends of the opposite sex to hold hands? [more inside]
Ponyfilter: Related questions on all the time. [more inside]
The question? I need your favorite badasses of history and science. The replies? 87 and counting. There's some great reading in this Ask thread, covering luminaries from Archimedes to Margaret Sanger.
Today's XKCD strip links to a nonexistent Wikipedia word "malamanteau." Apparently its only prior use was in a 2007 AskMe answer by ludwig_van. There's a bit of controversy on the Wikipedia talk page over a dismissal of MeFi as an "unused website."
Looking for an old AskMe question. Know who posted it and roughly when. Do I fail at the internet or was it deleted years after being posted? [more inside]
Multiple posting invasion in the green. [more inside]
About 6mo to a year ago I think, there was an askme asking for quotes or rhymes to put in a bathroom to go along with lighting a match when you are done doing your business. I cannot find this anywhere. Can someone please help me find it? Thanks!
I don't want to be the whiny "that guy," but I'm not sure what I did wrong with this question to warrant deletion. [more inside]
Feature inquiry for askme - the ability to write questions and have them automatically post after the waiting period. [more inside]
Thank you filter: friend in this question is now home safe with the re-opening of airspace. I want to give the most heartfelt thanks for everyone's ideas and advice. [more inside]
I just wanted to say that the sidebarring of the ADD/ADHD thread changed my life, and to thank all of you who contributed. [more inside]
I've been playing music all of my life, and I've never seen a better distillation of music theory than this comment. It's a full semester's worth of study in a few short paragraphs. I know it's been months since it appeared ... but this is truly worthy of a sidebar, or a book deal, whichever comes first.
Just like legal questions or medical questions, questions involving Roman Catholic canon law require a lot of specialized knowledge. That's become a real problem in this thread. [more inside]
FeatureRequest: AskMeFi question queue? [more inside]
What's the best way to thank people who answer an Ask Me question? [more inside]
Why did this post get deleted for being ranty and then reinstated in its same form?
I would like to submit this thread on ADD/ADHD for sidebarring. It contains some of the most honest, vulnerable, relatable descriptions of the effects on one's daily life that I have ever heard. Since ADD comes up a lot in AskMe, I think it would be valuable to highlight it.
Is PMS an illegal subject on AskMe now? I've been noticing comments recently where people are criticising others for suggesting that a woman's behaviour might be influenced by PMS. [more inside]
I'm looking for an old AskMe comment about someone who spent a lot of time interviewing and developing their job interview skills. [more inside]
Long-delayed followup to the Do I have a shot at the Olympics AskMe question from 2008. [more inside]
