Bug in just one FPP.

"Protection from the Atomic Bomb" doesn't display a link anywhere in the text of the post (for me). The rest of the page is fine. What happened? [more inside]

A little? AskMe front page tweak

My little pony: how much work would be required to turn the "contains answers marked as best" checkmark on the front page of AskMe into a link to the first best answer?

25 new posts about how it doesn't say that.

Very short question. Why does it say 'X new links' when most posts here don't have links? Shouldn't it say 'X new posts or X new flameouts/hugesexismthreads/podcasts'?

wanna come over and watch a movie?

I download what I imagine might be legally construed as "copyrighted material" all thie time. But I'm actually upset with this post because I know some people that worked on US v. John Lennon. (Double standard, I know.) So are there any guidelines about posting full-length, copyrighted movies? Is this post this even in good taste? Where's the context? Does it have any intent other than to illegally distribute a movie? Is this even a problem?

MeFi Reader Survey

So, I was all set to take the survey which is mentioned at AskMe (right-hand side, under the list tags/post block)
"MetaFilter Readers. Support this site and its advertisers by participating in a brief survey: questionmarket.com."
Unfortunately, this is the result when clicking on the link: "The website you're looking for cannot be found. The website may no longer exist, or may have moved."

The Askventure of Link

Why no 'link' button in AskMeFi?

link me inside

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].

Yay! Strippers!

In my favorite posts/favorite comments page, the links inside my favorites posts are retained, while the links inside my favorite comments are stripped out and rendered as plain text.

PonyFilter: It's annoying to click on the same link twice in a post. How about sending the New Post form back for the user to "fix" it?

Who's Linking to you, linking to me

NoBiggieCuriosityFilter: I run a t-shirt website, and I've noticed a significant bump in traffic today coming in from this askme post I made a while ago. While I normally get a few randoms in from MeFi a day, this seems significantly larger then usual, which I can only assume is because someone somewhere else is linking to that ask me question and generating traffic for me second hand. I'm really just curious about it, and am wondering if any of the admins would mind taking a quick look at where they are coming from for me. If not, no Biggie.

Dot Squatting

This article tells people to check out askmetafilter.com, not ask.metafilter.com. The link goes to AskMeFi though, not askmetafilter.com, which appears to be a shady spam and pop up info site...and I refuse to link to it.

Problem with "https" links?

Error: your link is improperly coded, please check it, and try previewing again.

I was trying to make a new post with a link to this page, but MeFi won't let me :( Are https links verboten in the blue?

One link posts could be saved

Just a thought about one link posts: Maybe people could save them until they had at least two or three, then posted all at once as say "OneLinkFilter: X, Y, Z" or "YouTubeFilter: X, Y, Z". Others could then emply their one link pile into the comments. Doing this might give the admins more freedom to delete one link posts which were covered as mere comments previously and don't generate much new chat. Other ideas like "YouTube friday" might require too much organisation.

My Profile link at top, not bottom, pls

QuickPony: Any chance we can please see the My Profile link bumped up to the top navigation bar, next to My Comments and Favorites? I love the quick-and-dirty account overview, but I don't love the scroll-to-bottom, or click through to main page, click user name action. (Or too much clutter? Discuss.)

Policy on single link product FPPs

This is a bad post. I don't dislike single FPPs, but a single link that points to a single product for sale on the internet, with no extra information or interesting stuff...is not in any way showing the best of the internet. There are hundreds of these for sale from all sorts of companies, and they've been around for a long, long time.

To top it all off, I question that and my post (containing one word: "Spamfilter?") was apparently removed. I can deal with that, but the issue at heart still exists.

NSFW Porn link in user profile

Cedar has posted an interesting AskMe question on how to occupy oneself during three months in the stir. But when curious minds eager for details on how he came to such a predicament click on the Homepage URL link in his user profile page, they're greeted with a "Whoa!!" NSFW porn site.

Shouldn't he warn folks on the profile page? Should I or someone warn readers of the AskMe thread? What's the drill on something like this? [And I hate to be paranoid, but could it be possible this is an attempt to drive traffic to said porn site?]

UserAgent string checking for helper buttons.

Matt: Can you disable checking the UA for determining if the little link/bold/em helper buttons show up by the posting box? Just so you know, it works fine with Opera when I have the user agent masked as IE.

Avoiding bad links

In the comment box, after clicking the link icon (or Ctrl-Shift-A), and pressing the Escape button, it shouldn't insert a "null" link, but just cancel adding the link.

making multiple links more visible

Just a style suggestion for links that include single words with multiple links.

A period ('.'), or a middle dot ('·' ·), or even a spacing cedilla ('¸' ¸) between the links would make it a lot less annoying, especially for those of us with motor control problems. I'm not suggesting this as any sort of rule, just as a nicety.

Dead project link should be deleted

dead project. The link was to the ebay sale of this thing which ebay removed for whatever reason (copyright violation, maybe)? Maybe the link should be changed or the post deleted (and perhaps the poster could be allowed to repost another URL)

"Newer" link at FPP bottom is broken.

The "newer" link at the bottom of FPP #19 leads to #24 (Download Abiword) which doesn't exist. The "older" link from #25 also points to #24. Shouldn't #19 link to #25 and vice versa?

links without learning HTML?

Apologies for what is most likely an extremely dumb question, but how do I create links within posted messages without resorting to HTML?

It's been a while since I posted and I remember there used to be a simple user interface to create hyperlinks, but now all I see in the posting area is a plain text-entry box.

How do I make posts that don't start with a link?

Of all the posts I've made, I've yet to figure out how to make posts that don't start with a link, where the main link begins further into the post (example). I once tried opening with a closed-anchor tag, but no luck. What's in the secret sauce?

FPP to an awesome product (not mine)?

So say I find a product on the web...I buy said product, and it is revolutionary for its purpose (using your mouse...it is a combo of mouse pad/teflon feet/teflon wax from the same company), would it be wrong/shameless to link said product on MetaFilter? (I am in no way related to this company other than I bought the products and I find them to be truly amazing). I simply want to share the love with any gamers/designers that could benefit from its use.

How to add a link to AskMe post

I am trying to post a question to Ask MetaFilter and don't see an option to add a Web link.
It's clearly there if I go to respond to someone else's post or if I want to post to MetaFilter.
And I see that others have added web links to their questions.
Am I missing something?

Add link to contact??

Wouldn't it be neat if you could link to a specific comment or post when you were adding someone as a contact. Perhaps the post/comment was a moment of infatuation or a particularly representative post. This would allow us to track and share exactly why we get that warm fuzzy feeling (or itchy, burn-y feeling) when we see certain usernames. What do you think?

Find the urban look link

Several months ago, there was a link posted to a site where people were reviewing other's "urban looks" ie if they were wearing the right color of du-rag for the dress they had on. I've forgotten what the site was called and where it was.. can anyone help? (and should I have posted this to ask.meta instead?)

blinding color blindness test link

Watch out for fatllama's link to a color blindness test in Keyser Soze's AskMe thread. It's not for the easily disturbed, or those looking for a quiet night of surfing. I should have recognized it from previous experience with it on the net, but I didn't and now metafilter doesn't have to either.

Tell me about Kinja

What is this new Kinja toy, and why hasn't it processed all the fun sites (including MeFi) that I've added to my favorites yet?
There's a bug too: "The weblog addresses listed below are not valid. Please enter URLs in the form" it reads when I press the cute button here on MeFi.

Kinja Link Doesn't Work

In the tradition of asking questions about items in the sidebar of MeFi, I can't get the Kinja link to work in either Mozilla (preferred) or IE. Both attempts result in "The weblog addresses listed below are not valid. Please enter URLs in the form www.example.com" Granted, I could be un-lazy and type in www.metafilter.com, but I thought I should point it out.
