Easy link to favorites

I'm hoping this is a tiny pony request. Size of the cuddlier guide horses, p'raps. It is this: a [+] tag on the dateline of mefi front page posts. Clicking the [+] would add a link to one's Favourites tab.

Jobs Expiration

Expiry date for MeFi Jobs. Jobs should expire automatically after 30 days, and should not appear in the main page/map/tags after that. There should be a possibility to prolong the expiry date if necessary.

Indicator for when a favourite post has been updated?

The [Favorites from Username] page; an indicator for when a favourite post has been updated since the last visit to the favorite's page?

Searching for Deleted Posts

To help avoid multiple re-posts, wouldn't it be helpful to be able to find the deleted posts in a search? At least it would be a little easier to find than the single instance post.

Contacts restrictions

I am wondering about the use of radio buttons vs. checkboxes in the "add contacts" page.

Music donations

I would like to see a mechanism whereby MetaFilter Musicians were encouraged to accept donations (PayPal links?) and listeners were encouraged to donate. I would far rather donate to my favorite artists here than prop up Sony Corp.

Spoiler tag pony request

If matt is looking for something to do he could whip up a <spoiler> tag, so (competent) people could conveniently hide their spoilers. Or is there already such a thing (I envision a textnode with "Here be Spoilers" text with DHTML magic to switch to the spoiler text upon mouseenter or hover).

Feeds by tab

NewTabsIWannaPonyFilter: For the various stuff that has now been tabbed-up on AskMeFi, MeFi, and MeTa, it would be wonderful for those of us who primarily browse by RSS feed if we had the option of subscribing to individual RSS feeds for the tabs in question. Hell of a lot more work, I imagine, but I'm just talking in an ideal world.

Pony: seeing tags from outside the thread

Could we have it set up that mousing over the number of comments in a FPP shows us the tags? [more inside]

Popular Favorites

Pony Up: In the new tabbed feature (which I love), "Popular Favorites" tallies popularity by those who favorited the post. Perhaps a more valid index of popularity (read: worthwhile, not-to-be-missed nuggets) would be to include the number of favorites to both the post and assorted comments within?

RSS autodectect to tag-specific feed

Here is a little feature request. I was thinking that the tag results page (e.g. posts taged with "ski"), should have a rss auto-detect meta tag in them that points to the tag specific RSS feed. Currently it has one that points to the site wide RSS feed. The specs are clear that you are allowed to have multiple rss auto detect tags in one document.

Whatcha think?

Can I invite people to non-metafilter events?

I was wondering about the etiquette of inviting mefites to non-metafilter events. I'm not talking about concerts or art shows or anything where money is exchanged, and I'm not talking about I'm bored/drunk/lonely, wanna hang out? situations. Rather I'm talking about open events that require active participation like parties, writing workshops, or bike rides. Can I do that?

By the by, Chicago Mefites, Zephyr's ice cream is closing for good this Sunday and I'm organizing a bike ride to go pig out there.

Pony request: color coding on My Comments

Wouldn't it be cool if the My Comments page was color-coded by site section, like the usercontacts page?

Connect MeTa threads directly to the original threads that inspired them?

It would be extremely beneficial to be able to connect MeTa threads directly to the original threads that inspired them.

When someone posts an innappropriate/poorly formatted/whatever thread, calling it out in thread gets it sidetracked, but they are unlikely to ever see the MeTa thread, and flagging for deletion isn't always the best solution. This way you could simply create a 'linked' MeTa thread, a link would popup in the initial thread (directly under headline on inside?) and discussion ABOUT the thread could take place there. Similar to the way wikipedia treats neutrality disputes, etc.

could there be a way to list items that have been favorited

This has probably been asked for before ... could there be a way to list items you have posted, either posts or comments that have been favorited within the last X amount of time? I have noticed that the favorite count goes up by one or two on my user page, but it's sometimes not obvious what has changed, and it ends up being some post I made 4 months ago.

pool for stumped questions

I got skunked! Since questions sometime slip off the front page within hours, how about a feature in which skunked questions are pooled somewhere until they get an answer? The skunkpool. Would that not be awesome?

Time between initial posting and final response

This really isn't a pony request, but it would be cool to see what FPPs and AskMe questions had the longest time period between their initial posting and the final response. I'm amazed that there continue to be posts regarding Mark Foley long after it's dropped off the front page.

City Guides Subsite?

cityguides.metafilter.com? How about it?

Inspired by Lougi's recent Askme Q, I suggest a section be set up where people can a) post requests for specific city info and b) post their fave tips for cities they know well. These threads could remain open indefinitely and be a great resource for people travelling or moving and would cut down on AskMe Q's about such things. If possible, perhaps a sidebar on Ask which just lists the names of the last 5 cityguide threads that have had activity would be a handy way to see when a city you know/care about has questions/activities.

Favorites Request

Can the favorites pages be tweaked so comments retain their formatting and links? Also, when the page displays the whole of a comment, there shouldn't be an ellipsis after it. TY HUGS

You are ineligible to post

Idea: what if the "New Post" and "New Question" links vanish-or change to say "You are ineligible to post"-when you aren't eligible? That would eliminate a lot of the "Oh lemme ax metafilter about that." ...*click*... "Sweet Lady Marmalade! I can't yet!"

Then when you're allowed again they change back to normal.

Mark your contacts

Highlighting contacts? Would it be possible to highlight the name of anyone you have listed in your contacts? Nothing flashy, just something to draw attention to the poster's name if you are skimming a long thread.

Anonymous category in AskMe?

PonyFilter: could we make "anonymous" a category at the top of the "Posts by category in the past month:" list in the sidebar on AskMe? The results, of course, would be questions from anonymous.

Dunno about other people, but I often find those the most interesting questions to browse.

Can we link the FAQ from the header?

I was having trouble figuring out how long I needed to wait before I posted again. I eventually found it in the FAQ, and that's all well and good, but I found the FAQ itself difficult to find. Sure, it's linked at the bottom of the various MeFi sites, but only on MeTa is it linked at the top. That's an issue for people like myself that mostly read MeFi through the RSS feed and don't normally scroll through the site to the bottom. Heck, I didn't even know the footer existed prior to today! So my request is to link to the FAQ from the header on the sites that don't currently have it there.

Personal Favorites

Can I have a pony? Favorites are a great way of finding worthwhile threads selected by the masses, but I would be even more interested in knowing which threads or comments their authors are most proud of, especially among people with a long history here on MeFi, and especially before the favorites feature was implemented. Any way of having a "my best post" feature, or even just to ask that question as a standard part of the profile? Failing that, people can just list their favorites themselves in this thread...

How about an RSS Feed that keeps track of when other people save your comment as favorites? Then you would never have to check that page manually to boost your self-worth.

Profile Changes

Suggested Posting History order:
MetaFilter:
Ask MeFi:
MeFi Projects:
MeFi Music:
(Jobs)
MetaTalk:

So that it matches the order of the navigation across the top?

Capitalizing 'Member Since' would be good too, to match the other page elements. I'll go away and stop being anal-retentive now.

Don't need no fantastic flag

Suggestion: get rid of the 'fantastic post/comment' flag, and replace it wholeheartedly by the favoriting engine. In particular, recode the fantastic questions and answers page to pull the most favorited Qs and As, rather than the most flagged. For a brief interval there, that page was the best way to see the best of AskMeFi, but its usefulness is fading as people move to faving things rather than flagging them. Also, it would be super-ultra-mega-cool to have an analog of that page for the blue.

View only favorites in thread

Ponyfilter: would it be possible to allow us to view only the "favorited" comments in a long thread? Ditto viewing only the answers marked "best" in AskMe threads?

(Well, yes, of course it'd be possible. What I'm really asking is whether there's any chance of it happening.)

The next big thing

What's it all for, anyway? Why do we fight? I mean, where's it going? What happens if the whole ball of wax just up and disappears one day? In short, why are we here? I'm speaking of Metafilter, of course! Pony-please: An admin blog detailing site-related news, plans in development, maybe a good call-out now and then. This seems preferable to combing MeTa for stray comments in re the next big thing.

Swapping on MeFi

Feature request: I want swap.metafilter.com. I really want to unload my junk on my fellow MeFites, and buy their junk off them. Please, Matt? Craigslist and eBay don't require a 5-spot to join, unlike MeFi, so that cuts down dramatically on the skeezy lowlife scammer factor. Another advantage is that this place is a real community and people care about their reputations. The community self-policing is strong, and MeFi's full of interesting people with (most likely) compelling junk they want to get rid of. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

Also, people here are really creative. Wouldn't it be cool if Miguel could sell his books here, for instance? Or Steven Den Beste could trade anime with other otaku. MeFites who are painters could sell their paintings. Sculpture. And so on.

Want usernames spelled out

It would be nice if one's username pointed to the spelled-out version somewhere on the front page—maybe on the upper right—so it could be easily found. It's useful for typing in other users' names when you want to see what they've been up to. Much more useful than, say, this.

Hot Topics Request

OK, now I rarely venture into this grey area here, so I may be way off base but I was kinda thinking - no matter how popular a thread becomes it sinks down and out just as quickly as people post new links/questions/dumb feature requests. I was wondering, would it be possible to have a separate page for MeFi, AskMe and MeTalk in which the threads were listed by most recent comment. This might give threads a bit of a longer lifespan and give an easy way to see what topics are 'hot'

[-fave] button

In this thread, there is some horrifically bad advice being offered (along with a lot of good advice, I should add). Would it be a good idea to implement a [-fave] button as well as a [+fave] button? I would certainly have wanted to mark down a few of the answers if I had the chance.

More functionality from project, music listings

In the projects RSS feed, the URL points to the submitted project, not the projects page, so in order to vote or comment I have to go to projects and find the link manually. Also, it would be nice if on the music page, you could favorite and playlist songs right from the main listing, rather then just on the individual song pages, so that if you're listening to a bunch of songs, in order, you could favorite without needing to change pages.
