I know we've discussed not adding tags to front page posts, but how about the RSS feed? For posts that are somewhat cryptic, it could help with context.
Pony: Can the recent activity page topics include a link to "xx new" just like the front page? [more inside]
Somewhat selfish pony request: Could we add a "more results" or "next" button to the All Time Popular Favorites tab, allowing people to scroll through a larger list? [more inside]
Can I subscribe to a specific FPP in order to get email notification when a new comment appears? [more inside]
Whenever I visit the green front page I see that there are x number of new questions and y number of new comments. Is there somewhere I can click to see ONLY the new stuff that has arrived since I last visited? [more inside]
Recent Activity on My Comments Pony Request: I live on this page, but would find it more useful if I could limit how far back it goes. For example, if there were an option to "don't show any comments over 12 hours old", etc. What say you?
Can we get an « Older posts button for the new Music Talk section over at MeFi Music? Seeing as how there's only room for five posts at a time (I suppose), it seems like a feature folks will want. [more inside]
On thread pagination +300-500 comments [more inside]
One thing that annoys me about long MeMail conversations is the lack of threading; before services like GMail and Facebook, which thread messages, this wouldn't have been such a big deal, but anymore I find it kind of irritating to have to click through several pages to read old messages in a thread. So how's about some conversation threading in MeMail? [more inside]
I, too, would enjoy a pony: the ability to select more than one category for an AskMe question. [more inside]
Can I haz a pomy^D^Dny? 60 second editing. [more inside]
Request for another way to interact in Metafilter Music. [more inside]
PONY: I like discussion! How about having some way of pulling up the "most active" threads...threads which have the most comments over the past x hours. [more inside]
Mefi Music pony request: can we have an "add to playlist" link directly from the pages 1) listing all songs by a particular user 2) listing all songs with a particular tag. [more inside]
I'd like to suggest that the "related questions" feature of Ask appear in the preview stage of posting a question. It may cause the asker to find their answer pre-posting (great for people who suck at searching, like me!) or rephrase their question in a manner that's more helpful and therefore cut down on the asker having to clarify repeatedly in the thread.
I know a MetaFilter swapsite or Craigslist-y thing has been suggested before, but now that I have a thing burning a hole in my pocket that I'd like to give to an interested local Mefite -- like, today -- I'm wondering if it's time. I'd like to sell or give away things to you, and I'd like to buy stuff, too. I'm pretty sure that we could do some really interesting things with this, like what Miko did with her $9 something offer.
Should there be a visual indicator that someone has opted out of MeMail? [more inside]
Is there a way to see how many of a person's AskMeFi comments are marked as best answer? [more inside]
Mark askee answers. (Meaning, highlight answers posted by the user who asked the question in askmefi). [more inside]
Would it be possible to have the pop-out player in Metafilter Music play randomly? [more inside]
Can we fix the <pre>formatted text bug where the live preview looks perfect, but the actual post ends up double-spaced? [more inside]
Unanswered Q's on AskMe: I can haz ponies? [more inside]
Can we add a flag for trolling? Or is this covered under one of the existing flags?
the new contacts page is leaving me wanting... [more inside]
Can we have a countdown timer for MeFi posts like we do for AskMe posts? How about for MetaTalk?
When the "title" tag is used on a link, it most often provides useful additional information (or a bit of nonsense that was better left out of the main text). So why not make it easy to do? Can you add a second field in the link dialog box to fill in a title tag? One rule for posters: Please don't use it for important parenthetical information like (pdf) or (NSFW).
MOST POPULAR PONY!! I want more functionality for sorting and filtering through the Popular Favorites. I'd like to have a box that allows me to choose: "Most Popular [posts, comments] on [Green, Blue, Black, Grey,...] in the past [n] days." (e.g. so that I could see all the popular AskMe posts side by side, over a longer timeframe, and without them being mixed in with the FPP's; or so that I could view the most listened to tracks on MeMu; or, or, or.)
My Little Feature Request: Paulsc had an uncommonly well-written answer in AskMe. It would be a good candidate for the AskMe sidebar, oh wait, there's no AskMe sidebar. But there could be.
I was a little sad to see the Purple Reign post deleted; I realize that the post itself was DOA but I loved some of the links posted within the thread. Perhaps there is a middle ground that is a step above killing that would still allow folks to at least see the comments while still culling the post.
On the front page sidebar, it says "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago"—links to Metafilter, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years ago. Could we please have this feature in Metatalk?
I'm terrible at remembering names. It would be great to have usernames that are favorites show up as a different color. Is there a way?
A thought: how about adding a post specific "favorite" tool for the blue (et al). Kind of an open "mark as best answer" for individual fpps. [more inside]
Can we please have an automatic deletion and/or penalty box for posts that get flagged for breaking guidelines by many users at times when no mod is online? [more inside]
Mefi Mobile Pony: Can we get more than 10 posts on mobile.metafilter.com? [more inside]
ContactPonyFilter: non-contact contacts? [more inside]
On the Add a new meetup to the Calendar page ground rule #1 states, Someone proposes a meetup in the gatherings category, people mull over a location and a date. Eventually an actual date and location is proposed, then people start saying if they're coming or not. It would be neat if there were (optional) entry fields for date and location and maybe location URL, and also neat if adding a meetup to the calendar posted a comment or notification in the thread stating all available specific details.

Many of us have spent quite a bit of time writing our various comments and posts on MetaFilter. In the spirit of "All posts are © their original authors," I would like to request the ability for a user to be able to download all of their own contributions as a simple data dump. [more inside]
Birthday notification? [more inside]
Filter filter. Assuming that favorited comments are better than non-favorited comments, wouldn't the next logical step for the favorites system be to provide a way to distill threads down to their essential goodness? How about adding a drop down box at the top of each thread, letting the reader choose to filter out all the comments that don't make the grade -- displaying only the comments that have X number of favorites or more.
Pony request: Ability to add questions from particular members to "My Askme." [more inside]
Embrace this new feature, and take it to where it needs to go, where the world clamors for it to go -- OPTIONAL HYPOTHETICAL FILTER
Matthew: For a long time, I have been sad at the loss of HypotheticalFilter. When AskMe was young, such questions would arise. But those days are gone now, as the site matured. It's simply not done, you'd say. It floods the page with nonsense. It makes the real questions get lost. Still, I thought, I want to know how to dispose of a body, or how long we'd survive without the sun. Who would win in a fight? A squirrel, or a squirrel's weight in ants? [more inside]
Could the Older Post/Newer ( « Older How exactly would one procure,... | How can I transfer iCal items ... Newer » ) post navigation be included at the top of the comments page so one does not have to scroll to the bottom to move to the next post? Perhaps the links would only be present if the number of comments extended below the fold.
Pony request: Meetup RSVP Kinda like a favorite, except a little link that says you're planning on going, and a list of people somewhere on the page of who is planning on going.
My little pony: how much work would be required to turn the "contains answers marked as best" checkmark on the front page of AskMe into a link to the first best answer?
This AskMe thread about contributors vs. lurkers reminded me of something I've been meaning to inquire about. A pony named Argus, who sees all users, named and unnamed, and enumerates them with well-manicured hooves. A digital Clever Hans. Or a realtime visitor count, if you prefer. [more inside]
It might be nice on the main page to see the number of new messages on a per-thread basis. [more inside]
