The MetaTalk RSS feed is showing MeFi front page posts. I'm using NewsGator, and this has only happened (last I checked) within the past 24 hours. Does anyone else have this problem?
Having problem with the contact form. Don't know if admins got my message. [more inside]
This AskMe post shows on the front page as having a Best Answer, but on the inside page nothing is so marked. Did a Best Answer get deleted?
Dumb and perhaps dumber question: I tried posting something to the blue today that included a link with https: up front, and kept getting a not coded right error. After futzing with it for a while I took the s out, and it looked right, but then the link wouldnt work. I assume the https (secure link it sez) thing is to keep folks from hot linking directly to an article? Just wondering if its a thing on the place I am trying to link to, or just something with the way to post on mefi? thanks
I can't log in with Firefox, Safari's working just fine. Following Jessamyn's suggestions I deleted cookies & disabled greasemonkey, but just get directed back to MeFi homepage as not logged in. Anyone else having trouble? Anyone solved it? [more inside]
Somewhat unimportant but, why do projects under 10 posts look like this while using Opera?
Being vain, of course, I noticed this morning that someone favorited my song. The details show two favorites, though, one of which is from 2006. Which I am fairly certain is not the case, unless somebody's got a sweet time machine. [more inside]
The comment count on the MeTa "Recent Comments" tab doesn't account for deleted comments. [more inside]
Can't get the mefi music player to work, even though I just reinstalled flash (it's flash-based, right?). It works on my laptop though, not sure why. [more inside]
When clicking on Older Posts when in an AskMeFi tags page I get records 6-55 of 55 rather than 51 - 55 as the heading suggests.
My user profile page shows I have one favourite, yet when I click to see what it is, I see a page that tells me I have no favourites (which is correct, as I don't use that feature). What's the dealio? Anyone else seeing an incorrect count on their profile page?
On the Upcoming Meetups sidebar in both FF2.11 and IE7, the Feb 8: Chapel Hill, NC post appears twice though I'm imagining it shouldn't.
I see a check mark by this question on the AskMe front page, but no best answer marked inside. [more inside]
New post form's URL search is broken. [more inside]
When you preview a comment the post's title disappears both in the browser's title bar and at the top of the page. Is that supposed to happen? Because it seems weird to me.
Two issues with "recent activities" the Secret Quonsar post no longer shows up in my recent activities page. It used to and I think the behavior changed when the thread was changed to a meet-up style thread. Also the favorite interface shows up by each comment in recent activity, but not the flag interface. Is this by design?
1. So I add a contact for the sake of entertainment perhaps. 2. Their account is then disabled. 3. I can't get rid of them from my contact list? Argh.
Is there a MetaFilter-related reason I am seeing a WSJ icon in my address bar when I visit ask.metafilter.com? [more inside]
My blackberry will no longer display the "Recent Activity" page for about the past month. [more inside]
Wolof has seven Nearby users. Of the seven, two (naturesgreatestmiracle and twirlypen) have error! instead of Nearby users. [more inside]
"Recent Activity" bugginess: older posts showing up after my more recent post in the Tut thread. The timestamps are all messed up on that page, but seem OK and are in order in the post itself. [more inside]
I have found a bug. You can never get to the second+ page of a tag search. [more inside]
On my favourites page, the dark blue popups that appear when I hover over a link never disappear when I move my mouse away.
The "Google Custom Search" box on the blue is causing a horizontal scroll bar to appear in Firefox/Windows. The input box is just too darn large. I'd guess 100 pixels or so too wide?
The divabats are multiplying in my favorites!
The Favorited By Others tally on the user profile page seems to include comments which were later deleted, and are not viewable through the hyperlink. One would expect direct correspondence between number and linked page.
I'm logged into Metafilter as myself (Ramix) however when I click on the metatalk/askme links from Metfilter, it shows me logged in as user oxfcaf. Strangely though it shows me logged in as ramix as i am posting this thread. However when i navigate to askme from this posting page (metatalk) it shows me logged in as oxfcaf! What's going on?
Anyone else see a weird display bug with this comment? In both IE and Firefox, the "posted by" line (and only the posted by line) for that comment (and only that comment) is not indented at all. I'm not familiar with the Metafilter code, but when I view source it looks like all the rest of the comments.
There's a minor bug in the activity page. It says "Displaying comments 1 to 50 of 490" while my profile page says I have 507 comments. Perhaps it's printing the number of total threads in which I've commented instead of the total of comments I've made?
Favoriting on the blue has stopped working with Opera on Windows XP. Works fine on all other sites.
Enabling the italics and bold buttons beneath the comments box for Safari users?
When I tried to login to AskMe from University today, I was logged in as normal and pushed to the Metafilter front page. Whenever I tried to get back to AskMe I would be logged out again. Was this a short term bug or an anti-University design feature? Can we be directed to the page we are trying to login from?
When I view my "My Comments" page, everything after this comment is small. There seems to be no closing tag. The original post page is fine. Is there some auto-closing mechanism that needs to be implemented in the new My Comments page?
There isn't a footer on the My Posts page if you don't have any posts within the selected timeframe.
Bug: "Favorited by others" pages may have an issue sometimes when you try to go to the next page of favorited comments. I'm not sure what causes it, but for example: mine no worky, but mathowie's does.
Admins: Metafilter is blocked for people with incorrect MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) settings on their router/computer(s). See this thread. I had this problem for several weeks, during which Metafilter's banner would load, but nothing else. Something needs to be tweaked on either the Metafilter server, or the Metafilter routing system (firewall settings?). My router was set to the default values for my ISP when this happened (BT Broadband in the UK). In other words, this isn't caused by people tweaking their settings—some ISPs are effectively incompatible with Metafilter in its current setup.
Are the deletions a bit wonky today? Some are showing up as the less uncommon scorched-earth-deletes (61928, 61950); some aren't appearing on the front page but have no deletion reason and appear open once you enter their thread (61932, 61936, 61942).
I was looking at an old AskMe of mine from 2006, and it doesn't appear to be closed to comments (though I didn't try posting a reply.) The usual "this thread is closed" isn't there - instead, it's the normal reply box. Bug?
There are two favorites by the same user on one post on the Virginia Tech shootings thread. Similar can be seen here, as mentioned here. Also reported in a MeTa thread on another favorite bug.
Is there a bug in this question? Looks fine on its own page, but on the main AskMe page it starts with the second sentence: "But this time...". Perhaps something to do with the fact that the first sentence is identical to the title?
why does my contributions from quonsar saved as favorites by others page include the Duclod man post? that was posted by Mo Nickels, not me.
This does not seem like an appropriate use of the jobs section. My attempt to flag it resulted in an error.
For this thread in 'My Comments' in my profile, and in the other people's profile I checked, the comments are out of order. The comment appearing after mine in 'My Comments' appears before mine in the thread.
In my favorite posts/favorite comments page, the links inside my favorites posts are retained, while the links inside my favorite comments are stripped out and rendered as plain text.
RSS gone bad? Metafilter Jobs, Ask Metafilter, and Metatalk are showing front page Metafilter posts instead of their respective posts. I'm using Google Reader, if that matters. I tried adding the feeds using Sage to see what was up, and it finds feeds but won't find any actual posts.
