Pony Request: Indicate in a thread which comment(s) have been sidebarred. [more inside]
A tiny pony request for Projects: could there be an indication on the Projects page when a project has been posted to MeFi? I know the detail page has a "This project was posted to MetaFilter by..." but unless you wish to comment, you'll never see it. [more inside]
Duck request (because horses scare me). Some sort of indication on the main projects page telling me if a project was posted to the blue. [more inside]
Simple proposition, but perhaps not a simple implementation. Or perhaps loathsome to the majority. Some sort of marker (and even the ability to disable it) to show where you left a thread after returning several hours, or even days, later. When it starts rapidly closing in on, say, 200, it's not so easy to find where you last were. [more inside]
On thread pages in AskMe, can the More Inside section be indented like the answers are, or otherwise differentiated from the start of the post?
This has been discussed before, but I think there needs to be a small and unobtrusive indicator for deleted comments, those removed from threads by the hand of God. Today's example in theMr. Mixed Up Bigotry thread. [More Inside]
I fixed the long standing new comments bug on MetaTalk, so the new comments indicators should be more reliable and not "disappear" on you when you refresh the main page.
I'd find it very useful if there were marks next to links on the front page so that I could see straight away which links are new since my last view. If I check the front page and there are 20-odd new links, I can't remember which I've seen before. Something like this would be nice.
Is it possible in the customization to enter each thread where the new comments begin? I have mentioned before that I'm not a programmer, so that's my excuse if this is a stupid question.
It's great that MetaFilter shows how many comments for each posting are new for you on the main page. It would be even greater if, on the comments page itself, there was some kind of indication of which were new. A simple
tag at the boundary would do...
Maybe more of a feature request. Anyway, I find that Metafilter resets all too easily .. like if I hit back too many times, and realize I've gone offsite, and come back, I've lost all the "new post" indicators. Argh!
