AskMeFi amendments

Feature Request: AskMeFi "amendments," long after a thread has been closed. Maybe 3% of the questions I've answered, life goes on, I learn, and I wish I could add something to the boneheaded advice that was supplied by an earlier me, so future searchers see it. [more inside]

New Time-Delayed Action!

Is there something broken with comments? When I hit "post", the page reloads, but my comment doesn't appear for a good 30-60 seconds, and then I have to either reload the page again or hit the Load New Comments button before my comment appears in the thread. This is decidedly not the functionality I'm used to on this website.

You can lead a ponyto water, but don't be surprised if I spend my time talking about ponies on the beach.

"Please refrain from bicyclist vs. driver discussion here. This post is about recovering from a serious injury." Sorry, I'm afraid I can't do that... as such, I'll flag this comment and stay out of the thread. [more inside]

Help me find this AskMe comment, please

I remember (but can't find) an AskMe comment where someone said she had slept with her male, virginal friend "to boost his confidence" or something, but that ultimately it changed nothing and 10 years later he still hadn't slept with anyone else. Anyone remember where it was/have better search skills than me?

Hi, I'm from MetaFilter and I could overthink a plate of 10 - 20 beans!

I noticed that the posting guidelines suggest looking at posts with 10 - 20 comments as examples of posts that spark a decent amount of discussion. These numbers seem out of date to me. Maybe they should be changed to 40 - 50 comments? [more inside]

!click and reload ...

About the (fabulous) 'X new comments, show' function: I can't say enough good things about this, as it makes following long threads so easy compared to the old system of having to reload. But why not take it just a small step further - instead of making us click to load them, why not just have the script go ahead and load the new comments when they are detected? (Maybe a user preference?)

I want a hoverpony!

It is standard Metafilter practice is to add links inline, but when the website they point to dies or rearranges its content they become meaningless. I'd like Metafilter's link dialog to encourage us to add hoverable descriptions to our links. This wouldn't just preserve meaning when a link has died; it would give us a way to alert people to PDF or video files without putting distracting warnings (PDF) in the actual text.

All take and no give!

Forgive me if this was asked before (I searched the FAQ), but I see a lot of people asking questions in AskMeFi who have never commented. Why are the guidelines different from MetaFilter (where you have to comment a certain number of times before you post)? I understand that some people are lurkers and we want to be accepting of that, but it seems like a lot of the questions which break the guidelines could be avoided. Maybe I'm just a whiner?

Fighty gladiator thunderdome

This FPP's typical and relatively successful feminism discussion devolved into a mano a mano between DNye and myself. I admittedly took his bait and engaged; my bad. This led to DNye's epic 3,600 word comment (plus addendum and corrections). I'm trying to disengage in that topic 1 2 as I try to avoid pissing matches these days. He wants to keep on fightin' 1 2 so I'm asking him to bring it here. [more inside]

Why the sudden rash of "honey"s?

Is it me, or has MeFi been infected with "honey" recently? It seems as though in the past week or so, every thread I go into has someone referring to another poster as "honey" or "hon" -- a term that I find startlingly condescending (with overtones of ageism and sexism, to boot). [more inside]
