The new hotness in tech: NYU Center for Business and Human Rights says social media giants should have their moderators be full-time employees (PDF). [more inside]
Just want to bring up an idea for discussion: gently discouraging walls of text in Ask Metafilter (without doing anything to prohibit) ... through greater emphasis in the top text on the page, and UI guidance after a certain word count (maybe via a change in the text input box color background).

It appears the official Ask Metafilter Twitter feed is everything posted, but it looks like the official Metafilter Twitter feed is most-popular. Unofficial ones set up by someone are deprecated from November 1, 2016. Are there any official or unofficial Twitter feeds that post everything posted to various Mefi subsites, including Projects, FanFare etc.? Would such channels pose a strain on the servers? Possibly could these be a pony request if no such thing currently exists?

Has anyone developed any official or unofficial hacks with regards to loading Mefi/AskMefi threads onto their Kindle?
Didn't see this in the FAQ: is there an online venue where one can chat live with fellow Mefites? I know there's nothing official sponsored by the site, but what's the most popular of any home-brewed solutions?
As far as I can tell, there's three factors at play with deleted posts – moderator opinion, initial crowd opinion (comments), and initial crowd opinion (flagging). And I'm kind of seeking to understand how it interplays, [more inside]
Could how Metafilter renders BLOCKQUOTE and list tags be fixed/tweaked? [more inside]
Idea: the Metafilter link-checker. Take the part of the 'new post' process that double-checks against prior posts, add the part of Mefi that conjures up the related posts, put a link to the feature up on the two lines of links near the logo. [more inside]
I am wondering if people could assist me in locating Ask Metafilter questions along the lines of this and this. I know it's a concept frequently asked about, but evidently the concept's too amorphous for tags to be of help, Related Questions just circularly refer to each other, and I can't find the right Google-fu for this one.

Pony request: can following all anonymous posts (or maybe, more widely, following a specific user) be integrated into MyAskMefi? [more inside]
This idea has been sticking around in my head for a while: assuming its creator cortex didn't vehemently object, could Big Big Question be integrated into Metafilter as a new subsite? I think it could be something amazing. [more inside]
Just wanted to float an idea about Ask Mefi categories. [more inside]
I remember an Ask Metafilter question in which it was asked whether, if the current Queen of England went by a name based on her forename and surname (the format many of us go by, such as "John Smith" or "Jane Doe"), what that name would be. I can't seem to find it under the "queen" tag or via a Google search. [more inside]
