Would it be possible to create draft FPPs before the end of the 24-hour delay? In other words, you would get the D'oh!/"you have already posted a link in the past 24 hours" page after hitting publish instead of when you click on New Post. I think the 24-hour delay is a good thing but it's intended to prevent people from posting not writing. Changing the order would allow people to check HTML formatting and link accuracy earlier in the writing process if they want to post on back-to-back days. Aside from changing the back end of the publishing process (which I know nothing about and may very well be insurmountable) would it add additional work or issues for the mods over time? Is this something that other people who post FPPs would like? [more inside]
The jump-down anchor visible on posts on mobile takes you all the way down to the tags. I imagine most people use it like I do: to get to the comment box and/or last comment more quickly. Could this be adjusted to remove the need to scroll up each time? [more inside]
Pony request: When I'm reading MetaFilter at my desktop, the menu options at the top of the page include the podcast. But when I'm reading on my iPhone, the podcast isn't on the menu. Can we add it, please?
After a long day of reading the site on mobile while waiting for stuff, the request here to add a "Favorite this post" link to the "Who favorited this post" page (the one that comes up when you click the link with the number of people who favorited the post) made a lot of sense to me. [more inside]
So, even outside of election years browser crushing 3000+ post megathreads are now a not uncommon thing - should we be looking at pagination at the 2000 comment mark? And if not pagination what else could be done to make them less of a browser crushing experience, especially on mobile?
I like the sidebar on the front page, and how it shows nifty stuff and contact activity. When I'm on my phone, I don't have that, and it makes me feel sad inside. Would the powers that be consider adding a line to the menu on the mobile site that would link to the sidebar content? In my head, this looks exactly like what we have on the front page, except tinier and by itself.

Pony: An easier way to revert to the mobile site. Current link is 1. tiny and 2. all the way at the bottom. [more inside]
(Mobile) pony requests: 1. It'd be nice if commenting was enabled from the mobile site. 2. How about a "load more" link on the section pages so that we can get to older posts more easily. 3. This is a bit more pie in the sky, but it would be great if internal links were rewritten to point to the mobile equivalent. I know the mobile site is a bit of a ghetto in terms of attention, but it really is a fantastic way to get my fix.
