Color coded usernames

I'm terrible at remembering names. It would be great to have usernames that are favorites show up as a different color. Is there a way?

Favorites

Feature request: Mark this FPP as "Keep" -- like the Bloglines feature that makes posts sticky, or perhaps a list in the "Preferences" section. You could just use Bloglines, but MeFi is one of the few blogs where the native interface is better than a reader. Having a personal archive of favorite FPPs would be nice.

MeFi skins/theme support?

Any plans for MeFi skins/theme support? The skins are designed by the users, for example at LinkFilter.

Pony: color-coded user names

Colored usernames. How about a per-user defined option to have usernames show up in custom colors to keep track of users I want to read (red) and users I don't (gray) and everyone else (default). Or some other way to highlight when a user I really like posts without having to memorize lots of names.

Distilling Metafilter

I have an idea for a blog and wanted to get some feedback. Metafilter often creates great threads with each poster adding additional links and insights but one has to dig through the noise and do a lot of reconstruction to get the good bits. The idea for the blog would be a meta summary of certain threads pulling all the good links, quotes and ideas together in single post, a sort of "best-of" with appropriate footnoting for recognition of contribution. This would take some writing skill. The summary thread can then be TB'd on a separate blog so readers of metafilter would have access and because it is a "best-of" it would have more permanence and a chance for additional contributions. Thoughts?
