Closing AskMe Threads

Do AskMetafilter questions not close to new comments after 30 days the way Metatalk & Metafilter do?

Semantic Wording About Favorites

On the user profile page, the "# of comments marked by others as a favorite" is incorrectly worded. I think that the wording should be changed to something like, "# of times contributions by 'user x' were saved by others" instead. Or is it possible to snip the dupes and only include the unique posts and comments that were favorited (in the # itself)? I read this thread, but it didn't seem to discuss the language I'm referring to.

Would it be okay to post a link to my book in a post?

I wanted to post about the current threat to abortion rights along with some links to information about how to get or do abortions. One of the links I wanted to include was to a book that I worked on. Is it inapropriate to put this post on the main page? (Since I wasn't sure, I posted it on projects.) Advice?

Best Comment?

How about a 'Best Comment' option on MeFi, similar to the 'Best Answer' option on AskMe? [more inside]

Comment anchor isn't working: deletion is the answer.

Why are we picking on the 13 year old? This is really distasteful.

The link in this post is ask.metafilter.com/mefi/40483#624324 but it opens at the post and not at the offending comment. Makes it rather difficult to follow the thread as a result. Am I missing something? Was it deleted? Can you point me to the comment in question? Is it OK to ask three four questions?

Could we have a timed window for editing comments?

How difficult would it be to program an edit function into our comments that allows us to revise our contributions within 1-5 minutes of posting it? I think it'd be a very cool thing to have for us OCD types that apologize after we spell something wrong and immediately correct ourselves in the next comment. Also, it could serve as a conscience (you post something, you regret it immediately, and get rid of it). Note, I'm not asking for unlimited editing. Only the ability to edit within 1-5 minutes of your original post.

I'm kind of disappointed to see everyone so cynical lately.

CSS in Comments?

This comment looked fine on live preview. I was trying to indent the italicized part. I take it that CSS commands aren't a good thing to put into comments.

Your comment appears to be blank

When posting to AskMe, I get the message: "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again."

It's not blank, and it happens even if I preview first.

Comment deletion in the religion thread.

Why can't you love your fellow man and be selfless, without needing to believe in a giant invisible wizard in the sky? This statement was attacked, defended, reconnected with the topic at hand, and was further clarified and apologized for by its author. But as of a few minutes ago, it no longer exists. This, my friends, is Chewbacca, and Chewbacca does not make sense.

More Fantastic Comments Please

"Fantastic comments" make good reading. Why can I only read the last ten? Is it just a technical issue, or is there a worry that a permanent archive will result in competition?

(and if so, is competition that encourages people to write fantastic comments really such a bad idea?)

Voting on Metafilter Projects?

Now that the contest is over, what is the point of having voting on Metafilter Projects? Anyone who wants to post the project to the front page can do so—no matter how many votes there are—and in most cases, having comments there instead of voting could provide the poster with valuable criticism and advice.

Is it just the worry that people will write mean things about the projects?

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.

Comment sorting a mystery

It looks like they're being sorted by comment date DESC, except that the three latest comments are not quite right.

A vote for threaded comments

If MeFi had threaded comments like most forums, it would be easy to simply delete a comment and all of its followups in one swoop. I used to do this all the time on a forum I moderated, and it was really nice.

Can we RSS for posts and comments?

It would be cool to have RSS feeds on a per user basis. I'm thinking mainly posts but comments would be fine too. Something like http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/user/posts.rss and http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/user/comments.rss. It'd be a great way to keep up with people whose stuff you enjoy (like everyone's favorite) w/o getting lost in the volume.

This "wins" meme is stupid.

I know I'll probably get a lot of shit for this, like I do for every MeTa thread I post, but can we please please please put a moratorium on the phrase "X wins the thread" and all variants thereof?

Okay now please commence with snark and then others can quote that snark and say "[snarker] wins the thread" hooray!

Temporary comment editing?
I'm sure this has been brought up before but......It would be nice to be able to edit one's comments for a short period after posting. Not for very long, obviously, but long enough to fix glaring errors or spelling mistakes.

"My comments": truncation causes truculence?

I'm not sure of this is a bug or a feature, but I've noticed that in "My Comments" long comments are cut off. If it's a bug: "Hey Matt, I found a bug!" If it's a feature...well I suppose I see the logic, so whatever.

Why is an answer in AskMe deleted when it contains an informative comment, followed by some humor?

Why is an answer in AskMe deleted when it contains an informative comment, followed by some humor?

This seems a tad unfair, since lots of comments are not deleted which contain exactly the same mix of a comment, followed by humor.

I'd link to my answer, but I don't know where it is.....Here's the question.

How do I know who's deleted my comment? Appeals? How does one gain such Godlike powers?
Also: is there a place to find deleted comments on AskMe so at least I can save my late night ramblings
