Hey, you want a nice MetaFilter tote bag with "[more inside]" on it? Fine, you can go buy one from TopatoCo now! [more inside]
Can limit the main text area so that people are encouraged to put [more inside] rather than so much outside? [more inside]
Posts such as this one or this one don't really make for a good post, at least from the front page's POV. How about an addendum to the posting guidelines to nip the god-awful "more after the jump"-style of linking in the bud before it starts to take over on MeFi?
A simple feature request.
Regarding the AskMe RSS feed formating - Currently there is no line break between the question and the [more inside]. Sometimes this makes for an odd run-on and repetitive paragraph that isn't what the poster intended. Since screen real-estate isn't a problem in the feed, might the powers-that-be consider throwing a paragraph between these sections? I use google reader but it's also formatted the same way in bloglines if this helps.
Is it feasible to have a proper [more inside] feature for the blue? It would be nice if there was a trivial way for the gods to save space without having to delete otherwise worthy threads such as this.
Minor AskMe usability gripe: Can [more inside] be a link to the thread? When a question is unanswered, the only way to get into the thread is by clicking "0 Answers." It seems more logical to click on [more inside].
how about a textarea on the post-a-thread page to allow you to optionally post the first comment on the thread? reading rich's comment on how not everyone wants to write up such a comment with word or notepad beforehand, it seems like this feature could be useful. no one jokes about where's the "more inside" text, and the ease of use in posting that first, explanatory comment may help in keeping FPPs from getting too large.
