Titles are back, despite title font size being set to zero

I just noticed that setting the title font-size to zero in my user preferences no longer prevents titles from being displayed with posts. [more inside]

The website so nice they headed it twice...er, thrice and a half.

Every once in a while, while reading MeFi on my phone, the heading will freak out. Like this. [more inside]

cemetery gates

Although cortex callously and without hesitation deleted my fabulous single link youtube front page post, I still see it, albeit with a re: sidebar.

Is this a feature?

Tags in RSS feeds

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.

what's up with the pinstripes?

Metafilter looks a little funny today. Blue, grey, green, everything is showing up like this under firefox. Safari shows things like this.

Stupid Tag Question

Please forgive me if this is a stupid question, but how does one "view tags" for a FPP? (I tried searching for "viewing tags" or just "tags" but the amount of entries returned overwhelmed by googlefu) I know I can view popular tags, but is there a preference where you can see tags (such as near the flag/favorite entries)?

Top of the Blue looking strange.

Is the header on the blue looking strange to anyone else? On mine, the "New Post," "My Profile," "Preferences," "Recent Activity" and "Favorites" links are all smooshed together underneath the search box (not the tabbed links, just the text links). I'm viewing the site in IE, WinXP, and I just noticed the smooshed links within the last hour.

Mefi frontpage is blank in Opera 9.23

I'm using Opera (9.23, Windows NT 5.1; U; sv) and all I see at the Metafilter frontpage is nothing at all (image). Mefi works fine in IE. Whatever has caused this, it must have happened during the past 12 hours.

Odd Display Bug?

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.

I like you. Do you like me? Check one.

Possible to see members whose comments/FPPs you have favorited, who have themselves favorited one or more of your comments/FPPs?

Change double hyphen to dash.

Feel free to put me in my place if this is way too trivial an issue, but I've been posting more recently and can't help but notice the little tip below the posting box, and—I know this is trivial, sorry—can we replace the two hyphens with a dash? kthx.

Display problem on the tag cloud page for MeFi music

Is it just me or are the tags on this page so small as to be useless? They look like they're embedded in 100 small tags. Safari.

Time zones are funny when previewing comments on AskMe.

Time zones are funny when previewing comments on AskMe. I have my time zone set at Central. When I use live preview, my comments appear with Pacific time. I did the cookies/logout deal, and it still does it.

uppercase html bugs

Uppercase HTML TITLE text in anchor tags gets converted to lowercase (I think via previewing a post). Seen here on AskMe. Also seems to be buggy on MeFi. [MI]

A problem with the new headers

A problem with the new headers: When I tab through links to "MetaTalk," in the upper-right corner, the browser puts a dotted border around the link. This border makes the page 1px too wide, and I get a horizontal scrollbar. This also happens for a second after I click on the link but before the MetaTalk page loads. FireFox 1.5 RC3 on Windows.

one long line

I'm on an imac (os9) and whenever I open the comments section from the front page all I get is a long single line of text in the middle of the page. I tried monkeying with the cookies and it seemed to help, but I'm not sure which cookie controls the text for comments page. And the machine gives me all kinds of grief when I refuse cookies.

Live Preview display should match comment entry pls

A pony: Can the Live Preview box be displayed in the same fashion as the actual posts on the page? More specifically, rather than being indented to the same margins as the comment entry box, can it be shown with the same margins as the actual posts on the page?

All the mefi sites display funny on my new Pocket PC

All the mefi sites display funny on my new Pocket PC. The coloured background (blue/grey/etc) appears in chunks so as I scroll down the background scrolls past the end of blue and shows white. Irritatingly, the text is white, so I have to highlight it to see what it says. Scroll down some more and the colour comes back then goes, then comes back, you get the picture? Anyway, its IE built into Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition running on a new Dell Axim x50v.
I'm going to look such a fool when someone points me to the "Make Metafilter display Ok" button.
