Pony: new posts to MeFi/subsites since last visit?

Lookin for a pony: Could there be a "new" page which only shows new posts to blue/green/grey since your last visit?

anonymous comments for $1 a shot

Less of a feature request, more of a mega cash-cow idea for Matt: The ability to make anonymous comments for $1 a shot.

'All' tags on AskMetafilter

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 ?

Request: a way to mark our questions as resolved.

I'd love to see a "conclusion" feature to many of the askme questions. For instance, even if it's months later, I could go into a question I asked and mark it "concluded" and give a quick summary of what happened when I followed the advice.

Once someone marks something "concluded" it would go to its own "conclusions" RSS feed, which we could subscribe to if we want to know "the rest of the story" on many of the questions asked.

Previous and Next Pony

Pony: when browsing the archives of ask.me the navigation for pages says next page and previous page. Could it be changed to older posts and newer posts? Also the color of links in "best answers" is the same as the answer.

Pony: Title guidelines on the 'Post a New Question' page

Why not explain on the AskMe "Post a New Question" page that the Headline/Title will *not* show up on the main page? I have seen lots of questions in the past where the Headline/Title contains the question and the question text lacks context and looks odd on its own. Example. I think a few clarifying words about how visitors will not see the Headline/Title when browsing AskMe's main pages will help people word their questions more appropriately.

Pony request: Highlight best answers and original questioner

I would love to see a feature on AskMeFi that similar to the way best answers become highlighted, so does the person who asked the questions subsequent comments. Maybe highlighted in a different color? This would be helpful because I often find myself looking for the posters subsequent comments on whether they want to refine what their question was and so on.

New Flag Request

Pony request, in light of this thread -- flagging options include "noise", "derail" or "doesn't follow the guidlines" but it seems to me AskMe requires another option, kind of an opposite to "fantastic post" -- how about adding "Doesn't answer the question"?

But that would require AskMe specific flags, which might be difficult or impossible. Instead, how about an "Irrelevant" flag?

MeFi Captcha

Apologies if this is redundant, but Yahoo's search revealed nothing about the look-n-feel of the MeFi captcha.

Metafilter's captcha is particularly irritating. Of the few sites I use that require it, this one is by far the worst. Many of the characters are ambiguous because they use a sans-serif font—combined with the size and font variation, letters like C, O, W become hard to distinguish when their cases change. And this is me being selfish—there's still the nagging problem that these are very inaccessible.

I realize (and read the thread on) why you installed one, and realize Matt-n-Co are busy creatures, and perhaps the alternatives aren't great right now. But sites like TicketBastard, Yahoo, and PayPal all use much less ambiguous, much more human-parsable captchas, and presumably have orders of magnitude more traffic than MeFi—so these must have worked pretty well so far.

Wikipedia has a list of alternatives for a variety of languages.

Can we have pictures of ourselves?

With meetups gearing up, and an eventual section to handle this being engineered (did I read that right?) - would it make sense to have an area that allowed/promoted users to upload (links to) images of themselves?

Can we have access to older pages in My Comments?

Could we get a tweak on our 'My Comments' pages to look further back than the current default, on demand? A 'Page 2' link at the bottom for the next X threads back in time, maybe? Or a customizable period (within reason) on our preferences page?

Ask Metafilter's FAQs in a sidebar

Just an observation: the question which DSLR to buy comes around so often on the green, with the same answers usually (understandably, but predictably) given, that I'm beginning to think there ought to be a sidebar of such frequently asked questions (or maybe mathowie ought to sign up for an Adorama affiliate program).

Can we add title attribute to links?

Pony Request: Could the title attribute be added automatically to links generated from the link button on the posts/comments toolbar? It wouldn't have to have any default text in it, but it would make people aware of its existence, which they could then use to reduce the large number of mystery links we see in posts/comments.

More Fantastic Comments Please

"Fantastic comments" make good reading. Why can I only read the last ten? Is it just a technical issue, or is there a worry that a permanent archive will result in competition?

(and if so, is competition that encourages people to write fantastic comments really such a bad idea?)

More styled CSS for some HTML elements, such as blockquote

Slightly better CSS: Could the CSS for useful elements like blockquote be improved so that quoted text from previous posts does not have to be faked with ? A now-common style of changed font, larger left indent, and line down the left side might work.

"My contacts" link on header?

Pony: Can a "My contacts" link be added next to "My posts" and "My comments"? I like the "My contacts" feature, but I don't use it that often because I have to get to it via my user page, which I can only access from the main pages, not thread pages, so I tend to forget about it. I'd use it more if it was a one click thing in the header.

Anonymous Replies for AskMe For Several Hours?

Anonymous posting: time-limited cookies to enable anonymous to reply to their own threads for N hours? Perhaps tied to logins? It seems like the "anonymous" nom de plume really only needs to be a setting that is applied when a thread is marked as such and the original poster is replying. Since most of these questions are for personal, medical, or other advice that usually need more input (perhaps to triangulate its position), it seems useful.

AskMe Fantastic Posts

My wife and I adopted a black, infant girl. It's not specific to iPods. There is no shrinkage.

The "fantastic answers" section of the Recent Fantastic Posts page of AskMeFi is confusing without context.... could the actual question (the short version) be printed, small, above each fantastic answer?

Can we have a changelog?

Would it be feasible to have an admin-only message board, maybe in the sidebar? There are enough postings where #1 explains the addition or removal of a feature to merit some kind ot tracking.

I guess what I want is a Meta-Changelog (say, changes.metafilter.com?) that could just be a plain-text, "on this date there was..." sort of list.

Or, there's always the ubiquitous RSS feed.

How about it? Simple pony?

Mefi Bug Tracker

I suggest implementing a bug tracking system for MetaFilter to track all the bugs and feature requests.

You could use for example the HELPNEEDED tag for things you might need help fixing. You can set priorities on bugs so that the most important and urgent problems will be fixed first. You can set WONTFIX for features that you aren't going to implement, and that way people will know not to bug you about the issue. You can enable voting for bugs and feature requests so you'll have a better idea of where to focus your efforts, you could easily assign small issues to jessamyn, etc.

Voting on Metafilter Projects?

Now that the contest is over, what is the point of having voting on Metafilter Projects? Anyone who wants to post the project to the front page can do so—no matter how many votes there are—and in most cases, having comments there instead of voting could provide the poster with valuable criticism and advice.

Is it just the worry that people will write mean things about the projects?

Add a fantastic flag scoreboard to profiles

Idea: Add links to a person's fantastic posts/comments/answers to their profile pages, as a kind of personal scoreboard.

Been wondering how to give people "attaboys" for good commentary and answers. Why not list these accomplishments on their profile pages? I did some searches, and the idea has been proposed before, but I can't find a similar suggestion that's more recent than four years ago.

Profiles already have links to a person's posts, and if I drill down I can see which ones have been flagged as fantastic -- so why not put this front and center on the profiles?

Historical engineering

If the admins are going to delete comments then at least delete any responses to those comments and the collateral damage. It has more finesse, although I guess it would take more time, but that's the price of historical engineering. Yes, it was my comment that was deleted. That's fine, I don't mind that at all, and I'm sorry for the mess.

my little comment ponies

Matt, can you add some more class to your comment HTML so that independent scripts such as my Comment script and MeFi Navigator have a more assured chance of cohabitating? [by a fluke there turned out to be no fatal interactions]

Also, the best way to quote comments is with a DIV. Can you make this possible? [more inside]

Easy thread monitoring, without throwaway comments?

Whatever happened to the idea that soon we'd be able to flag a thread as "watch," so that one doesn't have to post some crappy comment just to ensure the thread appears in one's "My Comments" list? There are many threads I wish to monitor, and few I wish to actually comment upon.

List of your top ten answered tags from AskMe?

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.

Profile page answer counts shouldn't include follow-ups.

I think that in the profile pages, the answer count for Ask MetaFilter should exclude the user's own comments in their own questions.

Feedback system for flagging so I can see that it has some result

Feedback System for Flagging: Everytime someone posts a callaout to MeTa, the usual response is "flag it and move on", which is great in theory, but there's absolutely no feedback by doing that. A page that lists everything we've flagged and the respective follow-up. (Please note, these responses could be automatically generated based on the current status of the post/comment) Examples:
Comemnt #129382 - Flagged as: Offensive - Result: Flag noted by admin but ignored.
Post #129834 - Flagged as: Duplicate - Result: Post Deleted
Post #149493 - Flagged as: Excellent - Result: Added to sidebar
I think if users could see that flagging actually has some effect, they might be less liable to whine about it in MeTa Callouts.

"Post Comment/Preview If There Are New Comments"

Pony: In addition to "Post Comment" or "Preview", I'd like a "Post Comment/Preview If There Are New Comments." Live Preview is enough for slow-moving threads, but in fast-moving this would be really handy, and I imagine less server-intensive than Preview.

Links Of Interest idea

I occasionally see something funny or mildly interesting that I'd like to post. But I don't want to post to the front page for a small item, like a game, video, or a friend-of-a-friend's funny caption.
