As someone who frequently posts IRL events, I'd really love if, when I previewed the post, the page told me about other meetups on that day within a 50 mile radius of my location. It would be awesome, because then I could say, "Oh, so-and-so is having their ice cream meetup that afternoon; I'll just make the post for the next week instead." It would also have the benefit of showing me events that might be outside the radius I've set for my own personal IRL notifications, but that might still be in range for attendees. What do you think? Would other IRL posters appreciate such a feature?
Is it possible to get a memail if there have been date/time/location changes to an IRL event they've RSVP'd to? And as an extension, possibly a notification when a proposed event is confirmed? [more inside]
Pony request: MeFi notification of deleted posts - Because I always forget I can look in my history to find the missing post. Seems like it would be "easy" (for unknown values of easy) to kind of do the same thing for deletion as for addition. (Maybe I'm just oversensitive, having had two FPPs deleted in the last month.)
Projects pony: email notification when project is posted to the blue. [more inside]
Pony: A button to notify contacts you choose about an interesting FPP, or an AskMe they're qualified to answer. For example, one of my contacts could easily give me a heads-up when there's a post about geography, or I could notify Astro Zombie about a Minneapolis-related thread. No more "paging languagehat" answers to etymology questions. If it gets spammy/annoying for th recipient, they can opt out or send me a STFU MeMail. [more inside]
Ooh ooh- I've got an idea. Picture this- you open a thread (AskMe or MeFi), and at the top of the thread, there is a small note that says "This thread is currently being debated in MetaTalk.", with a link to the MeTa thread. This way, people have no excuse for taking a big steamy dump in threads. People posting MeTa complaints could fill in a field with the post ID, and some database magic could occur to link the two. Just floating this out there to see what others think.
PonyFilter... Would it be possible to get a notification either as email (probably hard to do) or on the my comments page when an ask.mefi or metafilter post uses a certain tag. [more inside]
Let me preface this by saying that I am not looking to give mathowie more work to do. Having said that, I was wondering if there is a non-labor-intensive way by which I can be notified when new comments have been added to threads I've commented in without visiting the site and sorting by my comments?
