Email alerts about response to your question

Ask Metafilter: would be great if members posting questions could receive email alerts on new answers to their questions.

(please excuse me if this exists. I searched and couldn't find it)

Wording of the preview button on AskMe

When posting a question to AskMefi or a thread on MetaTalk, the preview button says "Preview the Link." Should it say "Preview the question" or "Preview the post" instead? (Is no nit too small for picking?)

Two accounts?

Pony time. Every time I ask a question on Ask...I have a need to ask another one (before my 7 days are up.) I could get a second account...now I'd have two logins, etc. [MI]

Request: a way to filter out particular users.

Hi, would a "filter user comments" option be a lot to ask? There are a few users who just never really say anything useful or contributory, and I think if I could just filter them out it would be nice.

Timeouts in search

In my experience, the exact phrase search for AskMe usually times out when searching through "answers only" or "questions and answers." I assume this is simply due to the size of the data. I'd hate to see this functionality disappear, as Google is pretty useless for AskMe. If a dedicated MetaFilter Search Cluster is not an option, perhaps we could have a way to specify date ranges?

Category-Specific RSS Feeds?

If it's not too much work, could we have category-specific RSS feeds for AskMefi?

Consulting Wikipedia before posting to AskMe

Matt, can you please add Wikipedia to the list of places to check on the AskMe post a question page? A number of times, I've noticed perfectly cromulent answers were in there. In fact, I bet Mefites can suggest at least a couple other "check here first" sources.

Printer-friendly AskMe?

Product review subsection

As a consumer, I've had a few very good and very bad experiences with service providers, recently. It'd be great if MetaFilter had a subsection to share these experiences to help the community share the joy and avoid the pain. Reviewing products and services where more people will see them is great way to improve services for everyone, and would have the potential for greater effect than discussing these things on our own weblogs. Perhaps this would be another way to harness the community positively in the way Ask MetaFilter has. How about it?

Del.icio.us link - useful or no?

After seeing this simple del.ico.us feature, I was wondering... would a [save to del.ico.us] link for threads in MeFi and Ask MeFi be a useful addition?

Differentiating moreinside from main body

On thread pages in AskMe, can the More Inside section be indented like the answers are, or otherwise differentiated from the start of the post?

New askme category: gifts

Can we get a "gifts" category in AskMe? People seem to ask for gift ideas quite often, and it doesn't really belong in "shopping" because it's about brainstorming, not sourcing.

Including new posts without comments in "Recent Comments"?

Obviously features hardly ever get implemented, but here's an easy one: Including new posts without comments in the 'Recent Comments' sort view. This would resemble the sorting that is done on nearly all forum systems, and I think it would be goddamned nifty.

AskMe Countdown

I've tried searching MeFi for similar requests, so please don't shoot me if this happens to have been requested before.

Anyhow, in the Ask MeFi section, wouldn't be handy if one could see the number of days one has to wait before being able to ask the next question?

Sort by recent comments

I've not been here long, but already I want a pony. It's been addressed tangentially before: sort by recent comments." Add this to AskMefi - by monju_bosatsu and we desperately need a "My AskMe"but my specific desired feature is to have the ability to know if an AskMeFi question of mine (or MetaTalk question) has been commented on further since I last checked/logged on, even if it is on my 'user' page, rather than on the main pages. I couldn't find such a beast, so if it is there, please let me know.

I agree bookmarking the specific threads would get the job done, but what's the point of asking for a new pony if the donor could just say - "You already have a perfectly functioning bicycle" Thanks.

Searching and Flagging

MeFi Affiliate IDs?

This thread gave me an idea. Could we set it up so links going to amazon or iTunes contain a MeFi affiliate id, so when visitors buy songs or books, some money could go to a MeFi general fund for hosting or sending mathowie on vacation or whatever?

How to get comment to show up immediately after posting

After I submit a comment, it sends me back to the page with all the comments, but it's the old version of that page, without my new comment. If I force a reload, mine will show up, though it used to show immediately. Is there some new caching or something?

Standardizing timezone names

"EST" = "Eastern Standard Time"; "EDT" = "Eastern Daylight saving Time"; "ET" = "Eastern Time" (no standard/daylight specified -- usually obvious which it is). It's to be expected that people will make these mistakes in FPPs and comments, but could you tweak the code so it doesn't say "EST" when it really doesn't mean "EST"? Rather than trying to come up with some code algorithm, or trying to remember to make the DST change every six months, just call it ET / CT / PT / etc and be done with it. A pet peeve of mine ...

Editting feature request.

After making this post I saw that I had somehow deleted half of it (probably when fixing a tag on preview). Is there some way to implement an edit function of one's fpp? Maybe have a five minute grace period?

RSS feeds for comments and tags? Maybe per user?

I'd like to see individual comments feeds for all MeFi posts. This would make threads much easier to track. Also, could we get feeds for MeFi tags too perhaps? And what about feeds for each user's posts and comments, like how 43 Things uses them.

Fast Front Page

I know it's been mentioned before, but I'd like to make a humble request for an extension of the length of the front page of AskMe. Questions just fly off the page, often in less than 24 hours, rendering the site less useful. An even better change would be to allow users the ability to choose the number of days displayed on the AskMe front page, just like on the MeFi front page.
Sorry if this is a redundant request. I bring it up because AskMe questions are vanishing from the front page ever more rapidly.

Can I Remove My Double?

Would it be possible to auto delete a post if the original author flags it as a double post? I double posted, I flagged it, but it is still there, perhaps I should be able to remove it?

Plaintext AskMe and MeTa

I've always wanted to ask this question, how do I get the nifty white background in Metatalk and Ask Metafilter? The white background theme seems only to work on the main page. Am I missing something? Thanks!

Add link to contact??

Wouldn't it be neat if you could link to a specific comment or post when you were adding someone as a contact. Perhaps the post/comment was a moment of infatuation or a particularly representative post. This would allow us to track and share exactly why we get that warm fuzzy feeling (or itchy, burn-y feeling) when we see certain usernames. What do you think?

Is there a way we can delete our own comments?

Is there a way we can delete our own comments? I understand that this could lead to confusing threads if people commented on a subsequently-removed comment, so if it needs to be limited to instances where the commenter left the last comment on a thread, that could work.

Can we have a 'via' field on the posting page?

Minor feature request: a via field on the blue's posting page. As part of the redesign, I'd love to see an optional field for including a "via" link. Two reasons: (1) it would encourage posters to acknowledge the source of the link, if applicable; and (2) it would allow some interesting statistics to be generated from the aggregation of via data.

Total Comments in AskMe and MeTa

When looking at a MetaFilter post, the line under the description looks like this:
posted by too_many_notes at 4:56 AM EST (13 comments total) ( feature_request ) [!]

However, in both MetaTalk and AskMetaFilter the "(13 comments total)" is missing. I find this information useful in the thread. Could the green and gray be more like the blue?

getting and highlighting great conversations

Ahem, ok a two for one.
Would a "great conversation" flag be something desirable? I tried to flag a conversation by flagging the fpp post, but frankly the post was... so so, the conversation that followed was terrific though, so I just chose "other" in the flag list.

And can people envision a method to encourage well crafted posts instead of the rush-to-post-before-someone-beats-me- to-it?
I know once comments start deleting a poor/bad post becomes hard despite there possible being a much superior (double) post. the only things I can think of seems like a lot of work for dear leader.

Tracking AskMe Posts That Have Left Frontpage

With the rate that ask mefi threads scroll off the main green page, how about a mechanism that allows for the easy retrieval and spotting of updates the threads that have scrolled off -- one that doesn't require searching through the archives. When someone updates a thread that is no longer on the front page, it shows up as an entry on an UPDATE page, the link to which would appear on the top of the main green page and never scrolls off...

This is my greatest stolen modified idea today. Metafilter hitpoints! We all get 5000 to start. Once you level up via unattacked thread posting, you can cast healing spells on your favorite, but inexplicably hated MeFi pals, or do double damage with Fireballs. Anybody who reaches zero has their account closed, unless someone ells resurrects you by sacrificing 3/4 of their remaining points.

Favorites Pony Request

Pony, pony, pony. Everyone wants a Pony. Here's the one I'd really like: The introduction of the [!] is nice. But I am way more interested in seeing the best, most interesting comments than I care about bad ones getting taken out behind the woodshed. If there has to be a [!] could there also be a [!!!]? In my pony dreams this spits out to a page like the del.icio.us popular list. Or something like that.

Post Rating System?

Anyone get the feeling that the overall appeal of Metafilter threads has sharply degenerated in the past few months? I used to think $5 for posting priveleges was a bargain. Now I think it's about right. So much trivia. So little time. Maybe there should be some rating system for threads like Slashdot has for its posts?
