Pony request: fix anchors for Safari?

I noticed recently that page anchors on MeFi were no longer working on iOS if opened in a new tab. Any links to specific comments just don’t work - the page loads, but I’m placed at the top, not the comment itself. It appears to be a known quirk with a usable solution. Can this be fixed?

Lost in the archives...

On the monthly archives pages it is much easier to find out the time of day a post was made than the date a post was made. I think time of day and date should be equally accessible by listing both on the "posted by" line. [more inside]

Make all links a hole in one. (sorry, that was terrible)

Pony Request - is it possible to automatically fix broken URLs that omit the "http://"? [more inside]

Scroll me closer, tiny pony.

Teeny tiny pony: remove the #commentpreview anchor in the header redirect after posting a comment. [more inside]

I need a pony because I'm too lazy to scroll on foot.

I would like a pony that I can ride to a spot on the page where I can read the comment I'm trying to preview. [more inside]

Hope the Lazy

Can the anchors in the "posted by" line have a different link/visited color than anchors people put into either the post or their comments?

pulling out info from pages without anchors

FPP question.

In making up an art centered post, I'm finding lots of great images with data that describes the particular piece of art. However, the art and data about it is on a web page with other pictures (sometimes relate, sometimes not)and the specific pieces I want to use do NOT have anchers. The data about the images is important, because the images are part of a storytelling genre/style and the data helps shed light on the images (which are at least 100 years old usually).

So would it be better to link to just the images or link to the web page and just mention that you have to scroll?

Is there a way to jump from one comment to the next using my keyboard?

Is there a way to jump from one comment (anchor) to the next using my keyboard? I like a feature in Bloglines where you can simply press "j" to go to the next article in a feed ("k" goes to the previous article). It would be nice if we had a navigation system similar to this going from comment to comment for MeFi/AskMe/MeTa threads.

scroll-to-named-anchor code

The new moo.fx includes some scroll-to-named-anchor code which I'd love to see in threads here when you click on an anchor link back to another person's comment, used when quoting them inthread. At the moment, it opens a new tab (for me), and rarely actually finds the right place in the page. I realize that's a browser shortcoming, not Matt's fault, of course. Anyway, it's not a new idea but it's easy to implement now with stuff like moo. Just an idea.

Return to same spot upon refreshing thread?

Hard-to-describe, somewhat picayune, possibly impossible pony request: Is there any way to code the pages so that when I hit reload, it remembers my position in the thread? [mi]

Fixing the returning anchor

Call this Feature Requests/Etiquette: I'd like, upon flagging a comment (in this case, Carbolic's accidental doubling), to be returned to the #name from whence I came, rather than the head of the thread to scroll down.
Further this thread has been magnificent, at least to the extent that I've gotten, in both well-reasoned argumentation and a lack of calling each other douchebags. I'd like to point out that both Rothko and Dios have been excellent at engaging each other in a way that, while highlighting their disagreement, is about the facts and arguments that each is presenting. Good show you guys. This is why I joined Metafilter.
(You may now commence flaming me for whatever evils I have evidenced in this post).

"Posted At" seems to be occasionally hinky

"Posted At" seems to be occasionally hinky. When I click the link to Mayor_Curley's embedded-image post (supposedly http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/38941#832736), it pops me to a different part of the page (http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/38941#832671) which is the first comment in the thread). I think I have seen that with some of my own posts in the past, perhaps when previewing, editing, previewing, editing, etc...

duplicate anchor names in thread

This comment permalink should go to a Hunter S. Thompson quote, but it goes to the wrong place. There are duplicate anchor names on the thread.

False anchors give wrong impression

A minor nit, but it's misleading to use a false anchor tag in a link, because people will wrongly assume it's legitimate. The Christian Science Monitor did not declare neoconservatives to be their enemies.

HTML problems

Bold tag does not close if within an anchored link.

Sent to the top of the page

How come, when I click on a link to a specific comment in a MetaTalk or MetaFilter post or comment--like evanizer's in the polarization discussion linking two specific comments in the Compassionate Conservatism Anyone? thread--I get sent to the top of the thread each time? The same happens when looking at comments in user profiles--is this on my end or is this something that happens to everyone now?
