Preview bug

When previewing a comment to a MeTa thread, the links to separate comments behind the time is broken, it links to http://metatalk.metafilter.com/contribute/metadetail.cfm?link_ID=xxxx#yyyyyy (which doesn't exist) instead of http://metatalk.metafilter.com/mefi/xxxx#yyyyyy.

MeTa archives goes to MeTa-ish AskMe

The current archives button from MeTa takes me to a page formatted like MeTa but containing Ask MeFi's threads.

Timestamps in wrong timezone

I'm logged in, but I'm still seeing timestamps in PST (I'm in EST, and my customize page still says that.)

(Win2K/IE6)...and at work so there may be firewall issues.)

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.

One of my links is messed up.

The last link in this thread was fine on preview but not after I posted.

Problem with MeFi displaying really large text.

In Windows XP version 2002, using either Mozilla 1.1 or IE6, renders Metafilter with really big letters that make reading the site difficult. Anyone got any solutions?

Post opens print dialog

I know it has been discussed before, but this post's link to the light version does something different: it brings up the print dialog [ie 6/xp and moz 1.0/xp]. I'd prefer the regular version to a page that decides to open the printer dialog for me.

Archives error

I got the following error when trying to view the metatalk archives (OSX, NS7.0b1):

Element METATALK_LAST_VISIT is undefined in SESSION.
The Error Occurred in C:\metafilter sites\metatalk.metafilter.com\archived.mefi: line 40

Then, because I am a supergenius, I thought I'd just check the archives to see if anyone else had reported the problem.

Netscape problems

Disappearing comments in Netscape 4.78: when I post a comment to MeFi, it doesn't appear until I force the page to reload. When I post a comment to MeTa, it disappears completely! Obviously, I'm posting this with a different browser.

Request: clarification that MeFi logins work on Meta.

Would it be possible to explain on the MetaTalk login page that MetaFilter and MetaTalk logins are the same thing? I joined MetaFilter sometime around August and had wanted to participate, but thought I would need a new account, which, obviously, was (and is) not available. It wasn't until this post, followed by this response, that I realized that the logins were the same. Clearly, I wasn't the only one who had this problem. I would think a small note on the page would do the trick.

fixed a couple long-standing bugs

I finally fixed a couple long-standing bugs. One, when you used <blockquote> in a comment, the preview page would look screwy, but upon submission, it would appear fine. That is fixed. The second, as mentioned by nicwolff below, had to do with the preview not being an exact preview of the comment after submission. That has been fixed, and the special code clean up that is done on submission is done on preview.

Blank page bug

What ... Just ... Happened?

I came here a few minutes ago and there was nothing but a big white space and a line that said that the URL didn't exist.

It was scary.

Scholarship voting problem

I voted for all of the essays, but when I went to check my votes with the provided link, it claimed I had not voted for any essays. Is the problem a bug or just me?

Sessioning should be fixed now, I think.

I think I fixed the sessioning. I reworked a lot of code tonight, and tested it, and I think I got it working correctly. Here's what's going on: you come to metafilter for the first time today, it says 3 new links and 24 new comments. You read the site, hitting the index page as many times as you want, and you'll never lose that 3 links and 24 comments status.

then you go away for a few hours, and you come back. it should say "1 new link and 13 new comments" (if that much changed between visits), and it should remain that way until you go away for over 15 minutes.

Now, the only place where this will be screwed up, is when you hit the site within 15 minutes from your last visit. That way, the session won't die and it won't update your last visit time.

I also got rid of the new window thing, and the double arrow things, since you won't lose state if you jump directly into a thread.

Let me know if you find any problems.

New Sorting Methods for MeFi

I'm now allowing a sort by most commented to, and it goes back as many days as you set in your preferences (or 7 days by default). This option is not cookied though, I didn't see the need, since it's more of a view than a permanent sort type. So if you go into a thread, then click the Metafilter graphic or home link, you'll go back to whatever default sort you were last cookied to. Is that confusing enough? Just use it, if you find errors or wish it did something more, say something here.

The other new sorting method, by My Comments, looks into the database for all the threads you participated in, over the past few days (as many as you show on the front page). Like the other method (most commented), this one does not get cookied, because it's more of a temporary view.

When I first hit metafilter, I view by date, if I see something interesting, I comment. Later that day, I might check most recently commented to see where the action is, and then I might hit "my comments" to see what's happened on the threads I left comments in.

I can easily take off the date restrictions on both options, so it's more of a "all time" done only 20 at a time, but I'm going to leave these as is before I add two more new options.

Posting goes to MeTa

Um, whoops. I think I found a bug. Click "post a comment" on the main page, and then "post a topic" on the top nav, and it goes to MetaTalk, instead of the main blog. Sorry bout that.
