Tagging Metafilter

Is there any way of having an overlapping system of tags to categorize these MetaTalk posts? So for 'feature requests' that could be a sub-tag of either the 'Metafilter', 'Ask Metafilter' or 'Metatalk' tags. So when I want to see what is being discussed about improving Ask Metafilter I start by selecting that tag and then start clicking the sub tags to get more specific. Finally, the reason I am asking is because I am concerned about the flooding of questions on AskMe and the thing I would do is have a separate section for technology questions as those questions seem to be at least 50% of all questions asked. Cheers.

Make askme more of a reference page?

It's pretty difficult to find things in the archives of askme, and I think that probably contributes to the huge number of questions posted each day. [mi]

I would like to have a way to hide some of the AskMe questions

I would like to have a way to hide some of the AskMe questions -- a button that would leave the title, but make the front-page part of the question invisible. I'm not talking about filtering out a user; I just want remove some questions from sight. If this is do-able, is there a downside to it? I swear this has nothing to do with the survey about scary things.

Ability to post questions in one's profile?

I have an idea that popped into my head while I was reading this.

Sometimes it comes up that people need/want to ask more than one question that warrants the use of AskMefi within the 2 week period. How about something in your profile where you could post semi-smallish questions + tags? These wouldn't be posted to the main page, but if someone had a similar question that they want to ask, these other smallish questions could come up in a tag search. Then, when the second searcher asks their question, maybe have something that pops up in the first person's profile next to their smallish question to alert them that a somewhat related question has been asked.

Note: I have no idea if this is one of those things that seems absolutely stupid or if it is too difficult to code or whatever. (I hope that "feature requests" was a good place to put this, even though it is probably nonexistant on anyone else's radar screen.)

I want a new comment flag

AskMe should be a ‘the commenter didn’t read the question’ flag.

Can I get an RSS feed of my own AskMe questions?

It's a pony, but one a lot of people would want to ride, I hope.

I'd love to see an RSS feed of the comments of AskMe questions I post (and for that matter, blue and grey too, though separately), so that I can keep an eye on the responses to me over time.

Pony wanted: tag search

A pair of tag-related pony-requests: I've been looking for tag search for a while, and just today discovered it exists on the Metafilter search page. Would it be possible to:
- put a copy of the tag search on the "Tags" page?
- add the same sort of tag searching in AskMe?
Thanks!

Feature request to list new askme posts by poster proximity

pool for stumped questions

I got skunked! Since questions sometime slip off the front page within hours, how about a feature in which skunked questions are pooled somewhere until they get an answer? The skunkpool. Would that not be awesome?

Time between initial posting and final response

This really isn't a pony request, but it would be cool to see what FPPs and AskMe questions had the longest time period between their initial posting and the final response. I'm amazed that there continue to be posts regarding Mark Foley long after it's dropped off the front page.

Can I Click 1 Link to Open All Links in a Post?

(I am not a programmer so I have no Idea how hard this might be...) Would it be possible to have a link attached to each original posting in Meta and AskMe, that could be clicked by the reader to open all the links the poster included in their original posting, in Firefox tabs? I know this sounds lazy, but I thought it might be a neat feature...

Pony: front page +fave links

Any chance we can get a +fave link on the front page for each item, especially on the green? (I'm thinking Digg-style, AJAX based would be very pretty, though potentially too Web 2.0 for the likes of some Mefites...)

Can you let us retract questions?

Can you put in the ability to retract a question? When you ask something and someone immediately tells you the (incredibly obvious) answer, and you feel like a total dolt for asking it in the first place, can you ask for it to be retracted and have it deleted?

I refer you to this recent thread of mine.

AskMeFi should consider making a separate section for travel/location questions

AskMe tag bug and pony request

Bug and pony request: example page Bug - this is the list of questions tagged in Ask with publishing. When I get to the bottom of the page it lets me click on "older questions". However, many of the questions on page two are the same ones as those on page one. Feature request - Any way to get the name of the OP to appear on the tags page? Right now it just lists time and date. Thx.

'All' tags on AskMetafilter

A couple of days back, I saw a page that listed 'all' tags ever used on Ask.MetaFilter. Clicking the tags didn't take me anywhere (they weren't linked, I think) but the page did exist. Is it still available and will the tags be linked anytime soon ?

Request: a way to mark our questions as resolved.

I'd love to see a "conclusion" feature to many of the askme questions. For instance, even if it's months later, I could go into a question I asked and mark it "concluded" and give a quick summary of what happened when I followed the advice.

Once someone marks something "concluded" it would go to its own "conclusions" RSS feed, which we could subscribe to if we want to know "the rest of the story" on many of the questions asked.

Previous and Next Pony

Pony: when browsing the archives of ask.me the navigation for pages says next page and previous page. Could it be changed to older posts and newer posts? Also the color of links in "best answers" is the same as the answer.

Pony: Title guidelines on the 'Post a New Question' page

Why not explain on the AskMe "Post a New Question" page that the Headline/Title will *not* show up on the main page? I have seen lots of questions in the past where the Headline/Title contains the question and the question text lacks context and looks odd on its own. Example. I think a few clarifying words about how visitors will not see the Headline/Title when browsing AskMe's main pages will help people word their questions more appropriately.

Pony request: Highlight best answers and original questioner

I would love to see a feature on AskMeFi that similar to the way best answers become highlighted, so does the person who asked the questions subsequent comments. Maybe highlighted in a different color? This would be helpful because I often find myself looking for the posters subsequent comments on whether they want to refine what their question was and so on.

Ask Metafilter's FAQs in a sidebar

Just an observation: the question which DSLR to buy comes around so often on the green, with the same answers usually (understandably, but predictably) given, that I'm beginning to think there ought to be a sidebar of such frequently asked questions (or maybe mathowie ought to sign up for an Adorama affiliate program).

Anonymous Replies for AskMe For Several Hours?

Anonymous posting: time-limited cookies to enable anonymous to reply to their own threads for N hours? Perhaps tied to logins? It seems like the "anonymous" nom de plume really only needs to be a setting that is applied when a thread is marked as such and the original poster is replying. Since most of these questions are for personal, medical, or other advice that usually need more input (perhaps to triangulate its position), it seems useful.

List of your top ten answered tags from AskMe?

Tags: User profiles show "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter posts" -- which is neat!, but would it maybe be really neat if there were a "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter answers"? I know that what I've asked about and what I've answered to are in pretty different realms.

Profile page answer counts shouldn't include follow-ups.

I think that in the profile pages, the answer count for Ask MetaFilter should exclude the user's own comments in their own questions.

I, question-filled as I am, would love it if I could front-load my AskMeFi questions which are then autoposted at the end of my week's delay. I'd even be happy if that happened a day later (8 days wait)...the important point is that I forget the question I absolutely needed to ask because I'm kind of dumb.

Highlight AskMe responses by OP

In AskMeFi, there is first the question. Then maybe 5 replies down there is a response by the person who asked the question. But they don't often identify themselves as the original poster, and it is not always obvious that it is the original poster and if I am down the page I have forgotten their username. Is there a way to highlite responses by the original poster? Or a way to make them stand out?

Pony Request: Highlight 'fantastic comment' flagged posts like AskMe's 'best answers'

It's possible for an AskMeFi poster to mark responses as best answers. It's possible for anyone to flag an answer as a fantastic comment. Why not amalgamate the two and have all the top answers in one place? Then, why not highlight all comments flagged as fantastic in AskMeFi, MetaFilter and MetaTalk the way best answers are currently highlighted in AskMeFi?

Marking a question to check back on it

Is there a way to flag a question in AskMe (not one of my own) so I can go back to it several hours later and read the comments that have accumulated? Am I missing some obvious functionality that does that? Currently, if I want to check back on a question, I have to remember what the question was and sift through (potentially) loads of other questions that have been asked since. Thanks!

Specially marked AskMe answers by the original asker

I haven't been around too long, but I did a search for this and it didn't come up....
Does anybody like the idea of the OP in an AskMe thread "standing out" from the rest of the comments, much like a best answer? That way, I could scroll through the comments and quickly see any follow-ups.

AskMe Archives by Category

Is there a way to see archived posts in Ask MeFi more than 30 days old by category? If not, it seems like an extremely useful feature--perhaps even show ALL posts by category and then just do "older results" at the bottom of the page on and on until the beginning of MeFi time...

anon needs to be able to respond

Matt, threads like this underscore the need for the anon poster to have the ability to respond in his or her thread. I'm sure that it's not a trivial amount of work for you - what would it take to make this happen, and what can we do to support your efforts?

I think that this is one of the most important features on the to-do list. It must be so painful for the poster to be unable to respond in many cases.

AskMeFi email notification?

AskMeFi email notification?

I understand for threads that get a lot of replies - an email per response is way too much, and would be more of a hassle than it's worth.

What about a nightly cron job that notifies AskMeFi posters who have checked an "email me to let me know about new replies" box a notice that X number of replies have been posted to their thread? The box could be unchecked by default, of course.

I've found that sometimes, AskMeFi threads that are days old end up getting responses from bored folks who scroll through several pages, so I think this would be useful.

Could the time left before I can another question be displayed?

Any chance there could be a bulleted add-on to the "Doh!" page that states you've posted an AskMeFi question within a week by telling me how much time left I have to wait until I can ask again? I could swear I only have seconds left, but there's no way to tell.

"sort by" for AskMe

Could a "sort by" box be added to Ask MeFi, ideally by applying a bit of the existing MeFi code? In other words, a dropdown box that would allow me to sort the site by date, my posts, my comments, recent comments, and most comments?

I think it would be very useful, especially considering how many posts have been made on Ask MeFi lately. (I'm surprised this feature hasn't already been added, frankly.)
