the genius of MeFi, to me, is the flat interface.

therefore, what would y'all think (and mainly Matt) about changing the form of MetaTalk so it's just one page (with a topic line in the post footer or header, if you want it)? it sure would make it easier to keep up, in my mind. sometimes i forget the last time i read and have to open the thread to see.

Like the new comments, don't like the >>

Like the ability to click on (2 new ») etc to get to new comments. Don't think the » is necessary. That is all.

Formatting error on posting

I can't seem to post a reply on MetaFilter this morning. Every time I hit Post it treats me like I hit Preview ...

HTML in Posts

This isn't a feature request per se, but I'm wondering if there are any guidelines about what HTML is OK in posts. I was experimenting tonight, trying to get a quote to format correctly as a block, and nothing worked. It seemed like using any block tag (yes, closed correctly) just totally trashed the formatting of the rest of the comment. No biggie, and I didn't want to mess things up for following posters, so I refrained. But. . . are there any general rules? (besides "just say no"?) And are entities OK or do they get munged somehow? (using IE5/Mac, btw)

Keystrokes for formatting goodness

I just added helpful keystrokes, ala Blogger, to the text areas in MetaFilter proper (coming soon here). You can now bold, italicize, and build links (my favorite) with a simple keystroke.

Unfortunately, it's IE 4+\Windows only, but if any enterprising javascripters can figure out a way to add html tags to textareas in Netscape, I'll be happy to implement it too.

Indent after post bug

Matt, after Skallas's post on Symantec charging for virus updates, the entries indent another indent's worth. Still not sure what causes that...

"How should I format the ticketstub site?" asked Mathowie?

How should the site be arranged and navigated? Personally, I want to see ticket stub stories of all kinds, and not have it bound to just rock concert show reviews. But that begs the question, should the first page you see have a list of entries by last posted? by category? (thinking generally here, like movies, concerts, etc), or list by author?

Since it's all in a database, the list can be any or all of them, depending on what the user wants to see, but I'm still wondering what the default arrangement should be.

What do you think?
