FeatureRequest: MeFi bookmarks.

FeatureRequest: MeFi bookmarks. I would love, on AskMeFi and MeFi, to be able to click "bookmark this link", and then be able to go to a page that lists those links I have bookmarked. Ideally sortable by post date and last comment date, searchable by keyword, but the sort/search isn't totally necessary.

"Why not bookmark it in IE/Mozilla?" Well, call me picky but I really prefer to reserve browser bookmarks for main pages of sites I visit ALL the time (i.e. MeFi/AskMeFi). It'd be nice to have a local archive of the stuff I'm tracking and want to keep coming back to.

Choose map/lat-long or zipcode

Is there any way to make it possible to choose between the map/lat-long feature and the zipcode list or list without a map? [mi]

MeFi Hall of Shame

MeFi Hall of Shame: Since there has been great *read WHY THE HELL ARE THEY THERE??* threads, why don't we look back at the absoulute worst threads (Self links, troll attemps, etc)? Maybe we can learn from these.

a del.icio.us-like portion of the site?

Why doesn't metafilter add a del.ico.us-like portion of the site which shows interrelated links between sites that have been linked and tagged by users on the various metafilter domains, including users own homepages, projects, etc.

How do I search for links on Metafilter?

This might be a pony request, I'm not sure, though...

While doing a bit of research for a possible FPP in the blue, (to avoid posting something that already had been) I was wondering if there was a way to search MeFi for given links.

In other words, say I found some new, interesting information about a widget that had already been discussed on MeFi - sort of a follow-up, hey, lookit what they're doing now-kind-of-thing.

Is there any way to quickly check if the sites I found had already been linked without reading through pages and pages of comments and multiple threads to make sure it hadn't already happened on MeFi? A straight URL checker or something? Or is there a search-engine technique I'm ignorant of that would prove useful. Finally, should I have taken this to AskMeFi?

Can we have the italics, bold and link buttons on the customize page, please?

Small pony please Santa. How about the 'i, B, link' buttons on the 'Customize' page? I'm not a(n) HTML samurai so that would really help someone like me when doing a mega-lazy/basic user-page layout.

Geocoder no good for Canadians

The Latitude/Longitude geocoder linked on the "customize" pages doesn't work too well for Canadians (it thought the city I lived in was somewhere in Alberta), so I found geocoder.ca, which allows more specific lat/long inputs for Canadians. Could we link this off the "customize" page, please?

Specially marked AskMe answers by the original asker

I haven't been around too long, but I did a search for this and it didn't come up....
Does anybody like the idea of the OP in an AskMe thread "standing out" from the rest of the comments, much like a best answer? That way, I could scroll through the comments and quickly see any follow-ups.

Metafilter users closest to this user

Pony: at the end of the new "MetaFilter users near this user" query slap an "order by miles ascending". Not a big deal. I just want to stalk people in order, s'all. (That's a pretty damned sweet feature, btw).

Nearby Users outside the US?

Has anyone ever come up with a method or numbering scheme that would allow the "Users Near This User" option to work for non-US members? If not, could something be developed? (For example, are there unused Zip code numbers that could be designated to major world cities, regions or countries and which would then allow me to see other Canadians who live in my city or at least province?)

Why not place the [!] flag on the front page instead of having to open a thread? The Dish TV post is so bad on so many levels that I felt all icky opening it to flag it. heheh

Can we move the byline to the top?

Suggestion for a small format change: how about putting the byline on top of the comment in discussion threads? This would allow us to efficiently skip comments from users we don't want to hear from without resorting to user killfiles, and without wasting precious seconds of I'm-surfing-at-work-and-I-really-shouldn't-be-doing-this time to realize that this is a comment from that guy. Having the byline at the top would save a bit of scrolling and skimming, since you'd know what you're getting into right from the start. Also, some MeFites are "must-reads" for me and I'd like to make sure I don't blow past them.

Can we add a platform option for computer questions in AskMe?

Since many computer questions hit AskMe, can a notice be added to remind the poster to mark which platform he or she is using, or perhaps a pull-down menu? This will help people provide better answers.

AskMe Archives by Category

Is there a way to see archived posts in Ask MeFi more than 30 days old by category? If not, it seems like an extremely useful feature--perhaps even show ALL posts by category and then just do "older results" at the bottom of the page on and on until the beginning of MeFi time...

anon needs to be able to respond

Matt, threads like this underscore the need for the anon poster to have the ability to respond in his or her thread. I'm sure that it's not a trivial amount of work for you - what would it take to make this happen, and what can we do to support your efforts?

I think that this is one of the most important features on the to-do list. It must be so painful for the poster to be unable to respond in many cases.

Search customisation pony

Dear Mathowie,
Could you so kindly add to the preferences an additional customization? If it isn't too much work. One in which I can choose which search engine the top right search input requests a search from. I don't ask for much. I only need a choice between Yahoo and Google. If it is any easier, I'm the only one asking so you can just give me the option and no one else. If it isn't all too much a bother, sir.
Humbly,
TwelveTwo

Comments for Projects

Dear Santa,

I already know that I'm getting the Schwinn "Stingray" 5 speed, ala 1977, and I already have one of my front teeth;

what I really, really need is "comments" for Mefi Projects.

I know it's been discussed, but I think it might be important. Frankly, I've seen a few things posted that could use some further insight. I haven't been inclined to send things to the blue for further discussion, it should happen their on the (white)?

New Flagging Reason

This had me thinking: wouldn't it make sense to have "needs 'more inside'" as a reason when flagging posts? I flagged it, but had to put "other;" and, if memory serves, plenty of good first-time posters have had their first threads derailed by the first few "whoa! muddying up the front page there!" comments.

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.

Downtime notice?

WhenMeFiIsDownFilter: Any chance we could see a message a la Flickr-style like MetaFilter is getting a massage and will return soon or something to that effect? Not trying to sound snarky, but ideally I think it'd be better than the hanging pages and timeouts we usually get.

AskMeFi email notification?

AskMeFi email notification?

I understand for threads that get a lot of replies - an email per response is way too much, and would be more of a hassle than it's worth.

What about a nightly cron job that notifies AskMeFi posters who have checked an "email me to let me know about new replies" box a notice that X number of replies have been posted to their thread? The box could be unchecked by default, of course.

I've found that sometimes, AskMeFi threads that are days old end up getting responses from bored folks who scroll through several pages, so I think this would be useful.

Timestamps

"Timestamps" in "my comments": The quasi-timestamps in "my comments" are wrong. The early ones are right "This morning"/"12 Hours ago"/ "7 Hours Ago" etc.

But then at some point it seems to reset and comments from yesterday are listed as "This morning" and "4 hours ago". It looks like it's only taking time into account and not the date?

Marking pivotal comments?

Pony request -

How about a feature that allows people to mark certain comments in a thread as "pivot comments." These "pivots" are comments that drastically altered the course of the conversation. If enough people flag a comment as pivotal, it would stand out somehow. It seems like "100+ comment threads" are here to stay, and this would reduce redundancy and make them easier to navigate.

Could the time left before I can another question be displayed?

Any chance there could be a bulleted add-on to the "Doh!" page that states you've posted an AskMeFi question within a week by telling me how much time left I have to wait until I can ask again? I could swear I only have seconds left, but there's no way to tell.

Adding Tags?

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I was wondering if readers would ever be able to add tags to a thread. The reason I am asking is that when I wanted to show the video linked at the top of this thread to a friend, I first looked here. When I did find what I was looking for soon after, it occured to me that if I could just add a video tag to the thread, it might help someone else. Again, I apologize for for whining about something that might already be a resolved issue - I don't frequent Metatalk much.

"sort by" for AskMe

Could a "sort by" box be added to Ask MeFi, ideally by applying a bit of the existing MeFi code? In other words, a dropdown box that would allow me to sort the site by date, my posts, my comments, recent comments, and most comments?

I think it would be very useful, especially considering how many posts have been made on Ask MeFi lately. (I'm surprised this feature hasn't already been added, frankly.)

Moving to MetaTalk

Reading the thread about the eBay scam stuff, it made me want a new pony.

Wouldn't it be neat if when someone takes a post to MetaTalk (for whatever reason), that the original post be marked somehow (maybe similar to the "best answer" check-mark) to indicate that it had been brought to the other forum (by that I mean MetaTalk). This would make the whole MetaUniverseā„¢ a more unified whole, more interconnected...

It'd also be entertaining for grouses like me who love to watch a trainwreck happen...
