Can we add a platform option for computer questions in AskMe?

Since many computer questions hit AskMe, can a notice be added to remind the poster to mark which platform he or she is using, or perhaps a pull-down menu? This will help people provide better answers.

Pony: alternate payment methods

Can we get another way to pay for accounts then paypal? I'd rather pay $20 for an account through another service then use them. There are several, relatively cheap credit card transaction services out there.

Pony request for live spell check

PonyRequestFilter: does anybody else (other than amberglow) perceive a rise in spelling errors since the deployment of live preview? Is a live spell check viable?

Live preview fixes some things but they still want more....

The live preview window seems to have fixed the old character entity problem... kinda. As long as you use hexadecimal character codes, things turn out fine. The annoying days of "????" "Oops, I meant ????" "Shit, make that ????" are almost over.

Since we're already so close, could we get one of the following?
1) Put a note under the text box reminding new users to use hex codes only.
2) Fix it so character names and decimal character codes work too.

Could we have comments on the flag page?

This post about readings for a wedding has great responses, and links to other threads with great responses (disclaimer: I responded to one of them.) I flagged the link as Other, expecting to be able to comment, but sadly, there is no comment capability. Please administrator, consider granting this pony, "comments on the flag page," if it is not too large and cumbersome.

Is there a way to add words to the spell checker???

Does anyone besides me find it ironic that our spell checker doesn't know the word "MeFi"? and... scary that the suggestion for the correct spelling is "Mafia"

Is there a way to add words to the spell checker???

We can haz Projects?

I've heard rumors around here about a potential .mefi section for 'fites to share projects they are working on with the community. Is this something that is in the works? If not, could it be considered?

Near-this-user outside the US, please?

Matt how hard would it be to add the near this user to people outside the USA? Assuming the code just uses a proximity match on zip code a similiar thing could be done with postal codes in Canada and I guess the UK.
All our non-US members, does your coutry have a similiar code?

Could we have a post comment button on the comment page?

Could we have a post comment button on the comment page? Going through preview is unnecessary in a lot of cases, and in the cases where it is necessary people aren't going to let the extra step actually force them into previewing. Also, since it looks like preview for html character entities is going to remain broken for the time being, being able to hit preview and then going back and hitting post comment if all is well would be preferrable to having to preview and then fix up the entities again (or copying and pasting).

Categories on Metafilter and AskMe?

Why doesn't the green or the blue have categories like the grey?

I'm wondering if anyone's considered a sort of "MeFi Resources Pool".

I'm wondering if anyone's considered a sort of "MeFi Resources Pool". By that I mean a site where members can go and list things that they have access to and then when another member needs something they can check the pool to see if anyone else can help. For example, if someone needed a new X and someone else worked in an X store then person A could get X for a good deal and person B helps out another member. And, it just so happens that person A owns a book store, etc etc. Is this just a ridiculous idea because the person who owns the electronics store is gonna have 50 people asking for a good deal on a television or is this something that may be useful and if so, what's the best way for something like this to work?

Sarcasm within.

Could there be a feature that automatically posts the nude picture of the poster when a disparaging comment about anyone's physical appearance is made?

Navigation links to top?

Having the « Older... | ...Newer » links at the top of a thread [to the left of the date] as well as the bottom would be handy..?

Can we sort by most visited/most clicked?

Has consideration been given previously for a Metafilter sort by most visited/most clicked on front page posts? Thanks.

Can we have years, please?

Threads are identified with a day and month, but not a year. Now that there are a couple years' worth of archive, it happens that people link to an older thread from a previous year, and when one goes to that page, all we see is something like "March 30." In many cases, placing the thread in its proper timeframe is extremely relevant. Is there any way to mark these with the year so that we know if we are dealing with March 30, 2001, March 30, 2000, March 30, 1999? This will only become more of a problem as the years go by.

Killfile request

I don't know if this has been mentioned or suggested before; but, regarding all the talk of 'stupid posts' and 'useless comments' --- what if matt built in an "ignore this user" feature? Then all posts from that user would never appear on your screen, all the comments would be blanked out with " *** this comment ignored ***"; or you could have your choice -- ignore posts but not comments. And then you could have a user admin screen that lets you see everyone you're ignoring. that way, you could periodically check and see if they've gotten better and you don't care to ignore them anymore.
again, i don't know if this has already been discussed. i searched for it but couldn't find anything. just a thought.

RSS feeds for Metafilter and Metatalk (Oct. 2001)

If there were MetaFilter and MetaTalk RSS feeds that contained all of the information the front pages normally do, and we had permission to mirror them, it could take some server load off the site.

Would it be possible to implement a "watch thread" feature?

Matt: Would it be possible to implement a "watch thread" feature? With so many posts now there are some I really don't care to follow while others I'd like to check back on often and have them at the top when I log in or switch views. The sort by most or recent comments doesn't quite do the job in this instance.

Use the MeFi sidebar to draw attention to recent MeTa threads?

I posted this in another thread, but since you can't see new posts on MetaTalk, I decided to post it here. Would it be a good idea to list recent MetaTalk threads in a section of the right sidebar?

Also: would dates be better than days for right sidebar posts (7/27/01 instead of Friday)? Kind of like filepile. It's hard to tell how stale the news is with just days...

When you reload the page, can the "new" comments be updated?

i have this tendancy to sit on mefi's home page and just reload every now and then for new comments. (am i alone?) anyway, i notice that when you leave the site and revisit, you get a different tally of what comments are "new", but when you stay and reload, what was new last time is still considered a "new" comment (with newer ones added onto what was there previously).

my idea is to change the code such that when you reload the page, the "new" comments for a user are updated as when you leave and revisit the site. i don't know the algorithm you're using matt, so i don't know if this even feasible or not, or if anyone else would want the behavior to change.

I think it would be great to have a daily digest mail, with links to MeFi posts

now that MeFi is starting to move very fast, with posts moving down the page by afternoon i think it would be great to have a daily digest mail, with links to MeFi posts. i also agree with the idea below about email alerts when a posting you've responded to is further commented.

I'd like to be able to preview posts and can the br tag be collapsed?

Someone already suggested the ability to preview posts (comments as well as new threads), so I'll second that. If it annoys people, you can make it an optional preview (preview button next to the post).

Related: MetaFilter inserts
tags on carraige returns blindly, and I tend to forget this and put them in myself. I was wondering if, after interpolation, more than two br tags could automatically collapse to just two, maybe with intelligent handling of paragraph tags as well. Maybe I'm the only one that makes mistakes like that, but nobody needs anything more than two line breaks anyway.

But the post preview would probably be sufficient.

May I humbly suggest a timer for individual posts...

May I humbly suggest a timer for individual posts. Err, that isn't very clear. Lately there's been a rash of people posting 2 or three small items in a row which, imho, really thins out the collective attention on MF which leads to more sparse threads.

What if each user was only allowed to post one new topic per 20 minutes? Or any arbitrary time period really...

Perhaps this should be a feature request?

"The URL you are about to post was found in 1 other post(s)." (2000)

I'd like it if, when you're previewing a topic you're about to post, metafilter says something like:

The URL you are about to post was found in 1 other post(s).

lorem ipsum sit amet..
Go to the detail view for this result

please check the thread(s) above to make sure you're not duplicating a previous post.
