AskMe hosed due to a poster's bad HTML

http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/20292 thread is hosed due to a poster's bad HTML; please repair so that posts can continue. I already tried some closing tag fu on it, no luck. Thanks!

Something's odd with my question thread.

Something's odd with my question thread. Here's what the bottom of the page looks like in Safari and Firefox. I reset Safari and I'm still getting the same thing.

Display problem in Safari 1.3

In Safari 1.3 the background of the top nav panel on AskMe is in MeTa grey rather than green.

I don't think this is how page views are supposed to work.

So when I look at a user's answers in AskMe, they are divided up into a certain number of pages. Yet when I go to the next page of comments, it only adds them to the previous page, and so on, until at the last page I have all their answers in one window. The header and address would say I'm looking at say, comments 51-100, when all 100 are being displayed. I don't think this is how page views is supposed to work.

HTML and CSS cleanup in aisle 40502

Spell with flickr = screwed up thread. HTML and CSS cleanup in aisle 40502, please. (Somehow the font is stuck small, the margin is borked, and I can't even figure out why. Nothing major, but it needs fixin'.)

Connection timeout members

A little bug on the front page. Top right reads "Connection Timeout members | You are logged in as ..." or merely "Connection Timeout members" if I'm not logged in.

Always refreshes to the first view of the day

Everytime I view a MeFi/MeTa/AskMe page, it brings me to the first time I viewed the page that day. I can reload the page and see new posts and/or comments, but if I leave that page everytime I go back it displays the first load of the page, not even the most recently viewed version. [MI]

Is there any call for a "quote" tag?

Is there any call for a "quote" tag? I think threads would look spiffy(er) if the style of quoted text were consistent. For instance:
johnnyEloquent: "Don't bet against yourself, you risk winning."

Hope this isn't a doublepost

UNICEF ad display issue

The UNICEF ad on (not logged in) MeFi is a little funky. I think they were expecting a white background. As it is, the child's face and the "relief" text to the left of it are obscured. Not a big deal, just thought I'd mention it. So this isn't just a complaint, I'm happy to copy/modify/send it somewhere, but I don't know to whom that'd go.

Something changed in the past day with the front page formatting.

Something changed in the past day with the front page formatting. The right hand column now seems to shove everything past the first few lines downwards...but only when you're logged in. I've tried it in both Firefox and IE.

I am in New Zealand, and we are on New Zealand Summer Time

I am in New Zealand, and we are on New Zealand Summer Time. UTC + 12 hours does not cut it - I need another hour. We start summer time early here, and finish it late, so this would make for many months of timezone happiness.

Just when you have time, mate.

xmas xmas xmas

I love Christmas as much as the next guy, but AskMe appears to be displaying December 25th three times at the moment, although no questions seem to be duplicated.

The use of small tags in front page posts bothers me

The use of small tags in front page posts bothers me. If something is worth saying, it's worth saying properly. A lot of the time it is used for unnecessary commentary about the post itself. Don't! Other times it's used to lessen the impact of a longer post on the front page, but preserving front page space by simultaneously posting less useful content seems like backwards logic to me. In preferences, I've set my small font size the same as my general font size, but it doesn't work.

Is anyone else seeing strange formatting behavior on this thread? I'm seeing a white background, right sidebar stuff lining up on the left, and the page text beginning below the sidebar info. It looks like the stylesheet isn't being applied for some reason. (Firefox, Mozilla and IE)

AskMe moves too quickly

I know that the duration of a question's stay on the AskMe front page has been discussed here before, but at the moment there have been 45 (give or take) questions asked today, and only the most recent 25 are displayed. Perhaps the front page should display at least all of a given days questions, even if they are more than 25?

Also, on the AskMe front page, anonymous questions are posted by anonymous, and on the archive pages they're posted by Anonymous Ask Metafilter.

Sponsored Links were really hard to read.

I did a google search on askMe and got great results, but I noticed that the Sponsored Links were really hard to read. (For example) Light grey and yellow on a pale green/blue. I don't know what the click throughs are on the Google searchs, or how important / significant this revenue is. Nor do I care. The Google Ads are readable and unobtrusive and fit well everywhere else in the MeFi domain. This one spot seems like a small oversight. Worth fixing? Not my call.

Did font sizes in the blue change?

Is it just me, or is The Blue displaying in a teeny-tiny font for everyone? The Gray and the Green haven't changed, and neither has any other site that I vist. I first noticed this yesterday (May 12).

If it's everyone, I like the larger font much better. If it's me, anyone have any idea how I can fix it?

I don't come here very much any more [no time; the Chomsky crowd nauseates me trop] but could someone please offer a possible explanation for why Metafilter no longer looks the way it used to on my IE5.0 for Mac?

Threads and header display screwy

Minor bug? For some reason, threads between 22521 through 22549 are showing up in both Mozilla and IE (Win) as black text on a white background with a seriously screwy top bar. I haven't checked all threads in between, but threads before 22520 and after 22550 seem fine.

White on white mefi

in today's theme, on mozilla 1.0 (sorry, but that's the latest version in debian stable/testing) textareas appear as white on white. i have a general (ie desktop) white on black colour scheme, but mozilla is configured to have a default of black on white. ps my mefi config uses the "other" colour-scheme.

there is currently a vertical gap on the front page

With the sideblog open, there is currently a vertical gap on the front page running the entire vertical distance between the last line of the description in the "Today some of us thought it..." post, and the line with Miguel Cardoso line. The gap disappears in the sideblog is closed. This is in my Mozilla for PC.

ASCII display errors

I'm seeing these ? everywhere. It's maddening for those who post them (when they go unseen in the preview), and makes reading difficult. Is there anything that can be done about this? I don't just mean a programming solution, but what is it, specifically, that the users are doing which causes this?

I am very impressed with the new server. One bug: Mefi blue and Metatalk grey/brown are not nearly as vivid as they used to be. If I enable colorsync on IE, things look fine, but that was never necessary before "(and AOL seemingly prevents me from keeping colorsync on). Can this be corrected?

I do not care for the recent upsurge in images being posted to threads.

Am I the only one who does not care for the recent upsurge in images being posted to threads? I hate to sound like my grandfather yelling at the kids in his yard, but it really irks me. I come here to read, not look at stupid images of Barney, fox medals and purses. Although, looking for the specific examples of the last two, maybe Matt has been deleting them?

Hogging the front page. Yes, I can read around this, but it takes up pretty much my whole window. As members don't we have some responsibility to keep the front page looking like a log of the web, rather than a Chinese protest wall?

I have trouble sometimes telling posts apart when people use multiple paragraphs. How about subtly altering the color of every other post to improve readability? For example alternating white and light grey.

Deleted post topic pony

Instead of simply deleting posts that people suggest should be deleted, remove them from the front page and disable further new posts on them. That way people like me who don't read MeTa very often will still know what you guys were talking about and why thread x should've been deleted rather than just having to figure it out from comments.
