Automatic detection of the un-best of the web?

Would it be possible to do a little real-time checking for easily catchable sub-par posts, and provide the user with a little advice or more information?

One instance where (given the largely negative feedback in this earlier post) this might be appreciated: If the post consists of a single link to an ebay item, present the user with a message as they preview, something along the lines of "You appear to be posting a single link to an item on ebay. Even if you think that it is quirky or wacky or outrageous, metafilter is probably not the place for it, and you may wish to reconsider your post."

There is some more inside.

One Year Ago

Elsewhere, Gluechunk said: One thing I've been doing lately is going back into the archives to read threads/posts from exactly a year ago.

Neat idea. How 'bout a link for it, Matt? Yeah, I could go into the archives, but I think it'd be neat to click somewhere on the front page and go to the MeFi front page from exactly a year ago. Of course, I don't quite know where you'd put the link. It sometimes seems too cluttered up there already. Maybe it would be good for an occasional "Classic MeFi Thread" anniversary. Anyway, just a thought.

iParty Audio Chat?

Sort of a feature: iParty is an audio chat program. Would anyone be intrested in setting up a server for MetaFilter? MF is a grat place to start a conversation, and there are a lot of people here that provide it. I think giving everyone the ability to have an actual, real-time conversation would be an interesting extension to the MetaFilter experience.

p.s. I'm not asking this specifically of Matt, either. I understand that about five people can be in a room together on a 28.8 server before lag becomes a real problem, so I imagine anyone that would have a static ip number could run the server. Of course, Matt might have to point it out before it would be accepted. (i.e. "official")

Let's add a rating system to MetaFilter

I think a rating system (perhaps similar to that of HalfBakery) would be a spiffy addition to MetaTalk/Filter. I thought of this a few days ago and had a genuine situation in mind wherein it might come in handy (Honest, I did!), but have since forgotten what good, exactly, it would be. Then, of course this whole TiVo essay thing came up, and I really want people to know how great I think bradlands' Limericks are, but don't want to be rude by posting "Hey, I just wanted to let everyone know how great I think bradlands' Limericks are." Ratings, of course, would be the obvious, and polite, way to do it.

Of course, I'm sure it would also prove a valuable addition to the entire MF/T community and everyone would love it, etc.
