Plugin to open all links

Is there a hack/script/firefox plugin that will allow me to open all links in a metafilter post, sequentially and in tabs, followed by the comments, after right clicking "comments" on a MeFi thread?

Can I Click 1 Link to Open All Links in a Post?

(I am not a programmer so I have no Idea how hard this might be...) Would it be possible to have a link attached to each original posting in Meta and AskMe, that could be clicked by the reader to open all the links the poster included in their original posting, in Firefox tabs? I know this sounds lazy, but I thought it might be a neat feature...

Is it possible to gift someone a membership?

Is it possible to gift someone a membership? I have a friend sorely in need of a MeFi lifestyle awakening, but haven't seen a way to make this happen.

Request: the ability to retrieve a comment that was almost posted to a deleted thread.

A FPP rant was recently deleted after I began to compose my response. Hence, by the time I was ready to post, the thread was closed to new comments... and I lost several good paragraphs that I would have been content to post elsewhere. Respectfully request some scheme (redirection to Preview Page, for instance) whereby content is retrieveable in such a case.

New feature please: MeFi Polls.

New feature please: MeFi Polls. Briefly, it would be great to be able to construct simple polls which can be answered anonymously.

Can we have a 'see also' feature for links with more info?

Suggestion: In lieu of the infamous carets, or the oft-suggested WIKI, wouldn't a [see also] notation be more effective solution? It would certainly be in keeping with the continuity of the site's layout and design.

Sidebar link request

could we get a sidebar link to a recent story on what's going on in the Mideast? i just posted a link that could serve, but if it's too recent or something of that nature, i wouldn't mind moving it all to another thread. it would just be nice to have somewhere to discuss all of this with y'all.

Why a Favorite?

My Little Favorite Pony - for marking posts and comments as favorites, how about allowing you to put in a little note as to why it piqued your interest.

My Profile link at top, not bottom, pls

QuickPony: Any chance we can please see the My Profile link bumped up to the top navigation bar, next to My Comments and Favorites? I love the quick-and-dirty account overview, but I don't love the scroll-to-bottom, or click through to main page, click user name action. (Or too much clutter? Discuss.)

Please add projects and songs by our contacts!

On the usercontacts page, we can see MetaFilter posts, MetaTalk posts, Ask MetaFilter questions, favorites, and playlists from our contacts. I think we should also see projects and songs posted by our contacts there, too. [A little 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]

MefiMusic play-list pony

What it be possible for MeFi Music to auto-generate its own play-lists? It'd be really nice to be able to listen to (i) the tracks uploaded on a given day or (ii) every track that's been uploaded; without having to put the hard work in.

Discussion area in MeFi Music?

How about a discussion area in MeFi Music for members to set up collaborations? There's a lot of talent among the members, and I think it would be pretty cool to have the opportunity to collaborate with people across the world.

Pony: front page +fave links

Any chance we can get a +fave link on the front page for each item, especially on the green? (I'm thinking Digg-style, AJAX based would be very pretty, though potentially too Web 2.0 for the likes of some Mefites...)

Intra-filter trackbacks

For the big pile of stuff: How about a wikipedia-style "Mefi posts that link to this post" box on the side of each thread (that has been linked back to)? So when someone links back to a post, that old post now links forward to the new thread. Especially useful if you search and find an older thread, and would like also to read the subsequent threads which say "previously discussed on MetaFilter..." Ideally, it would pick up on comments as well as posts that link to a specific thread (not to a specific comment in the thread, though).

Adding tags to another person's AskMe

It would be useful if one could add tags to another person's Ask Metafilter post—it could clarify the content where the original poster has neglected tagging altogether, or where the poster's tags are vague. The user-added tags could be marked as such, and kept separate from the poster's tags. Is this possible? Or would we be afraid of abuse?

Can you let us retract questions?

Can you put in the ability to retract a question? When you ask something and someone immediately tells you the (incredibly obvious) answer, and you feel like a total dolt for asking it in the first place, can you ask for it to be retracted and have it deleted?

I refer you to this recent thread of mine.

AskMeFi should consider making a separate section for travel/location questions

AskMeFi should consider making a separate section for travel/location questions. Unless I'm going to be in London (Istanbul, Des Moines), I don't have an interest in the question or the answer.

MeFi Messaging

Can i just say I think it'd be great to have a messaging system on Mefi? (Primarily because I've belatedly added what I hope will be a helpful response to an AskMefi post, and I've got no way of alerting the person who asked the question..)

It's been discussed before, but I can't see a definitive ruling..

Sorting Popular Favorites

Could the popular favourited posts and comments be listed in chronological order instead of by number of "votes"? As is, it's difficult to single out what's new and fresh -- which would make the whole page much more useful (not that I don't love revisiting the Sketchzilla thread).

Cluttered Profile

It's been a while since I visited my profile page. In doing so, I found it to be far more cluttered and loaded with information than it used to be. Can we get some options to hide some of these things (like top ten tags)?

For example, if I have no contacts, why not just hide any text about it? Why does it have to say that I have no contacts? If I have no projects or favorites, why not just hide that information instead of saying that I don't have any?

And can't that big long "What's the deal with your nickname..." text be shortened to "Personal Info" or something similar?

Could we have a timed window for editing comments?

How difficult would it be to program an edit function into our comments that allows us to revise our contributions within 1-5 minutes of posting it? I think it'd be a very cool thing to have for us OCD types that apologize after we spell something wrong and immediately correct ourselves in the next comment. Also, it could serve as a conscience (you post something, you regret it immediately, and get rid of it). Note, I'm not asking for unlimited editing. Only the ability to edit within 1-5 minutes of your original post.

AskMe tag bug and pony request

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".

Right now it just lists time and date. Thx.

High turnover on AskMe

I've noticed that AskMefi has a high turnover rate these days, and some questions don't get answered because they age too quickly.

Suggestion: how bout we have two columns of questions instead of one? So that older questions show up next to the newest one - and have a longer life?
