Sometimes people misspell their tags on posts. An example: this old post of mine which I tagged with bobbygentry instead of bobbiegentry. (I’ve since fixed this.) Right now, when you search by tag you get back a list of matching tags and tags that contain your search as a substring. I think it would be helpful if we also returned a list of results that have similar spellings in case the post you’re trying to find has a tag typo.
Would it be possible to get the ability to filter MetaTalk posts by tags and create "My Talk"? [more inside]
Is there a way to see the tags on a post when using the mobile platform? If not, can this be added? Thanks awesome people!
The way that shows on FanFare are automagically coralled under the the show/
url is great! Would it be feasible (or helpful) to automatically add the show name as a tag for any posts made for a show? [more inside]
Let's create two new special tags for AskMe: Updated and ReAsk [more inside]
Pony: could we display tags in the mobile view? [more inside]
Can we mobile users have more HTML composition buttons? [more inside]
Picayune pony, please: On tag pages, the navigation is just older/newer. Would it be possible to change that so that it's paged, allowing me to go all the way back on some tags with one click instead of 30?
Metadata for Metafilter Pony request: would it be possible to have a box that pops up that says something like "We noticed you're using tags X and Y, here are some other tags commonly associated with X and Y," to improve the descriptive qualities of user provided tags? [more inside]
Pony request: The ability to view the tags for individual posts on the mobile site. [more inside]
I have expertise in X, but I don't care about A-W, or Y and Z, so I don't check the green very often. I also just asked a question about F, and I'm sure there are F experts that steer clear of the green for the same reasons I do. AskMeFi moves fast. Faster than ponies? [more inside]
Would it be possible for posts that have the NSFW tag to be marked as such automatically on the front page? [more inside]
Small pony: MeFi search doesn't index tags. [more inside]
Is there any way to view tags that have only been used once? [more inside]
Could we set things up so tagging an AskMe post as 'resolved' automatically removes the 'stumped' tag?
We have MyAsk. Why not MyMeta? How about a tab that filters by tags. Example: ignore anything with linux or politics. Keep anything with maps or art.
Why don't we have tags in MetaTalk?
Pony request for related tags feature. [more inside]
I know we've discussed not adding tags to front page posts, but how about the RSS feed? For posts that are somewhat cryptic, it could help with context.
Not another favourites pony: Tag clouds for favourites? [more inside]
An idea about favorites. [more inside]
A rainbow-brite pony request: AskMeFi tag alerts, sent via MeFi mail or sidebarred? [more inside]
YouTube tags --- of any sort: titles, categories, etc. --- possible on the fpp? [more inside]
Suggestion: Can we somehow make the tags of a post viewable from the front page. Whether it is just printed out directly on the page, or whether you need to hover or click on something to see them. [more inside]
A request for 'tag groups' and 'tag aliases'. Explained inside.
Display the tags of a post as an option, below the post text on the front page for logged in users?
Two requests for Mefi Music: 1. It would be nice to have usernames on the tag results page. (e.g. acoustic) This would help users find other songs by the same artist. 2. The frontpage tends to load my system because of all of the flash files. Would it be possible to have everything show up on one playlist like the "tagged with" pages or the user pages? [mi]
Is there any way of having an overlapping system of tags to categorize these MetaTalk posts? So for 'feature requests' that could be a sub-tag of either the 'Metafilter', 'Ask Metafilter' or 'Metatalk' tags. So when I want to see what is being discussed about improving Ask Metafilter I start by selecting that tag and then start clicking the sub tags to get more specific. Finally, the reason I am asking is because I am concerned about the flooding of questions on AskMe and the thing I would do is have a separate section for technology questions as those questions seem to be at least 50% of all questions asked. Cheers.
Ask Metafilter: some intuitive interface to Time-Periodic Frequently Asked Questions...(more inside)
Howdy. I'm searching for a post that I think was made here awhile back of people carrying ridiculous amounts of stuff while riding a bike. I can't find it [maybe it wasn't here]. Anyway, in the course of searching for it I also took a gander through the FAQ in the hopes that I could find information on the best way to search MeFi... [mi]
Could there be a 'family' category for AskMeFi? I felt weird asking a question about my daughter and categorizing it as 'human relations', which based on my reading over the last year or so seemed mostly to mean make-up/break-up questions!
I want tags on metatalk.
Bug and pony request: example page Bug - this is the list of questions tagged in Ask with publishing. When I get to the bottom of the page it lets me click on "older questions". However, many of the questions on page two are the same ones as those on page one. Feature request - Any way to get the name of the OP to appear on the tags page? Right now it just lists time and date. Thx.
Could we get a <spoiler> tag?
A couple of days back, I saw a page that listed 'all' tags ever used on Ask.MetaFilter. Clicking the tags didn't take me anywhere (they weren't linked, I think) but the page did exist. Is it still available and will the tags be linked anytime soon ?
Bug: You can attach the same tag multiple times to a post.
Pony: Title attribute on FPP link field?
Pony: Title attribute on FPP link field?
Tags: User profiles show "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter posts" -- which is neat!, but would it maybe be really neat if there were a "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter answers"? I know that what I've asked about and what I've answered to are in pretty different realms.
[pony] Tags in MetaTalk?
Make tag and category links work on preview
Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I was wondering if readers would ever be able to add tags to a thread. The reason I am asking is that when I wanted to show the video linked at the top of this thread to a friend, I first looked here. When I did find what I was looking for soon after, it occured to me that if I could just add a video tag to the thread, it might help someone else. Again, I apologize for for whining about something that might already be a resolved issue - I don't frequent Metatalk much.
Minor request. Could we have a link to the tags list URL on the Post a Link page? Thanks.
I'd like to see individual comments feeds for all MeFi posts. This would make threads much easier to track. Also, could we get feeds for MeFi tags too perhaps? And what about feeds for each user's posts and comments, like how 43 Things uses them.
I've started tagging my AskMeFi posts and realized that in some instances, the resulting answer(s) would serve as valuable tags. Not knowing what the answers are going to be when asking a question, I hope we'll eventually be able to change/add tags once a live question has been answered.
Is there any way to add a title tag to AskMe posts? A title would make it much easier and faster to bookmark well-answered posts.
As has been noted before, questions get pushed down off the page at AskMe too damn fast. Most of the questions are good ones. Which means, I guess, we need some better information architecture (categories or something) to happen. When, oh lord†, when?
would anyone else like to see categories like here in metatalk on askme? (mi)
