Exclusively viewing new questions.

Whenever I visit the green front page I see that there are x number of new questions and y number of new comments. Is there somewhere I can click to see ONLY the new stuff that has arrived since I last visited? [more inside]

Per-thread new message count

It might be nice on the main page to see the number of new messages on a per-thread basis. [more inside]

Request: first post and new commenter indicators

How about a subtle indicator of first posts and new commenters? I think I mentioned this before in the comments to a thread, but as long as we're all on the Pony Express and there's no contentious threads on the blue, this seems like the time to bring it up properly. [more inside]

"New comments" should be a link from category pages

New comments on category pages. I'm not marking this a bug, because I don't want to be asinine about it. [más adentro]

Pony: alternate payment methods

Can we get another way to pay for accounts then paypal? I'd rather pay $20 for an account through another service then use them. There are several, relatively cheap credit card transaction services out there.

"New comments" link together on one page

How about an option for the front page that would allow you to click the number of new comments and be taken to a page which contains those comments, threaded according to the corresponding post?

Notification of new threads and comments.

Would it be possible to add a "There have been X new threads and Y new comments on MetaTalk since your last visit" to the MetaFilter page?

New link indicator on front page; pony!

I'd find it very useful if there were marks next to links on the front page so that I could see straight away which links are new since my last view. If I check the front page and there are 20-odd new links, I can't remember which I've seen before. Something like this would be nice.

Sometimes I stash a topic href in my bookmarks for a few days

Sometimes I stash a topic href in my bookmarks for a few days, so I don't forget about it as it rolls further and further off the front page. It Would Be Neat if topic pages declared how many new messages they contained, preempting a bit of thought as to whether it's worth scrolling down and finding my place again.

New Metatalk thread indicator

Could you please have a new MetaTalk thread indicator on the main page?

You could either have a MetaTalk (new) indicator in the menu on top, where the "new" doesn't need to be a link, or perhaps near the "There have been X links and Y comments posted since your last visit" you could display a new MetaTalk thread(s) indicator.

This feature is not important, but it would be nice, as I am sure there are others out there like me who forget to check MetaTalk a few times. :)

can we start reading from the new comments?

Is it possible in the customization to enter each thread where the new comments begin? I have mentioned before that I'm not a programmer, so that's my excuse if this is a stupid question.

Sorting options

Since I like links over drop-down menus, I'd like to see links in the "There have been 2 links and 21 comments posted since your last visit" sentence. For example, if I visit MeFi and my default sort is by most comments, I could click on "2 links" and have it sort by date. Or, I could click on "21 comments" and have it sort by recent comments.

Would it be feasible to let us munge our cookie/user data?

Would it be feasible to let us munge our cookie/user data? Specifically, the last date/time visited? It'd be something of a work-around for when the front page refreshes during topical views, and there's no indication of what threads contain new data.

I tried editing the cookie directly, but all those percentages confused me. :-)

Where I stopped reading indicator wanted

It's great that MetaFilter shows how many comments for each posting are new for you on the main page. It would be even greater if, on the comments page itself, there was some kind of indication of which were new. A simple
tag at the boundary would do...

New Comments Only

I tread warily here, but... Matt, you've been working on customisation and filtering, have you considered a preference that would display only new items? I've looked at the current Prefs page and don't see it, nor do I think it's come up in these threads discussing the filtering feature set (obvious apologies if I'm walking back over old, tired ground...).

A simple boolean should be enough to get started with this:

[ ] Show me only thread that have new comments

I'm assuming that you either consider a new thread to automatically be a new comment as well in the back end, or that you can relatively easily do so. Since the db already "knows" what we've read, you'd be screening us from any threads that have had no activity. The benefit would be to allow setting the "show number of days" up higher to track discussions you are interested in, without having to wade through the many, many threads that have their day or two in the MeFi sun and then go the way of all things.

new posts, new comments

It Would Be Nice If, from the Meta topic page, you could see the "new posts, new comments" numbers for the individual topic pages (especially if that included a flag for any place you'd been followed up).

Sometimes I'm just keeping up with my own patch, sometimes, I have *time* to be looking for new stuff.
