PONY: Applying the same higher standard to FPPs about "the crisis in academia" as the one that's applied to other outragefilter FPPs? They come up regularly, they turn into trainwrecks. In fact, they always turn into the same trainwreck. I realize that these FPPs are not quite "newsfilter" and sometimes seem substantive, but experience shows that they never lead to respectful discussion, just acrimony and meticulous, systematic trolling.
Pony request: a place for random answers, or tips, that have no immediate questions, but might be useful to someone, sometime, somewhere. [more inside]

Pony Request: Can we include the podcast shownotes in the podcast RSS feed? [more inside]
For some time I've been moving around MetaFilter on mobile, and I'm missing the 'Contact Activities' (side bar feature). I can't keep up with my favourite pack nearly as well. [more inside]
Any chance we could have the ability to unflag/reflag a post or comment? [more inside]
The new css Post/Preview buttons buttons added last year don't have any :active styling. [more inside]
Idea: MetaStrategies Card Deck [more inside]
Around a year ago there was an idea floated about favorite categorization. I think that this would be a great feature for the site. Is it still in the "too ambitious" pile of site features, or have the coders taken another look at it since then? [more inside]
Hey, look, another pony request! [more inside]
When adding a contact, the reasons you can give are all positive. But those aren't the only reasons you can have for wanting their posts on your sidebar. [more inside]
So it turns out my 18 month old son has been attending a Junior Metafilter Moderator training course. He surprised us with what he learned yesterday, so I figured I'd add it here in order to make our current (greatest) generation of mods' lives a bit easier.
Pony Request: Additional Posts and Comments on the "Popular" page. [more inside]
Idle pony request: optional, check-box activated persistent top navbar, such that the main site content scrolls up behind it. [more inside]
Some podcast related ponies. [more inside]
Has there ever been talk about a "mail this question to a friend" thingy for askmefi? I frequently see a question and know someone who would know the answer but completely forget to actually tell them about the post. This would probably also work on the blue... "mail this post to a friend." I never use those on sites, but I have that on my blog and I'm always surprised how much it gets used. Maybe put it up there under the "Share:" links?
Wondering if it's possible to limit a search to just within my favorited posts? [more inside]
IRL Pony Request: Slightly more event information in Recent Activity. [more inside]
Recently active pony: Is there a way to see recent activity since specific, non-self comments? Or some other way to bookmark threads? [more inside]
Could Recent Activity and Favourites be somehow colour-coded? [more inside]
Pony request: Flag categories to move negativity into the flagging system and out of the comments [more inside]
Long, long time lurker, first time Pony... Any chance for Recent Activity to include the (# new) comment link at the top of each section? [more inside]
Could Recent Activity include the date the post was made? [more inside]
Pony Request: Clickable calendar dates (on the blue) [more inside]
Would it be possible to have an checkbox option to set the "my mefi" / "my askmefi" tabs as the default tab that opens for logged in users? [more inside]
Feature request for profiles: phone numbers. [more inside]
Is there a greasemonkey script that hides all posts with a given keyword? Can there be? [more inside]
Pony request: mouseover that shows who favorited a favorited comment. As opposed to having to click through to a list.
Single Comment URL's [more inside]
New month, new MeFi Mag! Read on for more about this and upcoming issues and deadlines. [more inside]

Pony request: Make snarks optional. [more inside]
Whatever happened to introducing a three-minute edit window for comments? [more inside]
Is there some way we could track when we are mentioned in a thread? [more inside]
Hyper-literate pony: LibraryThing's "Currently Reading" list -> Profile Pages? [more inside]
My Little Pony Request: please consider adding Favorites to the Mobile Site menu. [more inside]
Link next to [more inside] that would fetch the remainder of the post and expand it in-place on the front page? [more inside]
Is there any way to view Popular Favorites for a given tag- for example, sorting posts tagged with 'books' in order from most to least favorited? If not, could there be? [more inside]
Pony Request Redux: Adding an option to sort search results by favorites. [more inside]
Would you ride this anonymous AskMe pony? [more inside]
Pony: could we display tags in the mobile view? [more inside]
Can we mobile users have more HTML composition buttons? [more inside]
Pony request: Would it be possible to have a 'new post' button on the Mobile site? It would be easier than switching to the full site.
So where do we put all the great April Fool's jokes that we missed and are just finding now? Can we maybe have an annual thread for this? [more inside]
How about a Mefi-specific URL shorten-er? Or maybe just a link to an internally-generated short URL? I'm surprised this pony hasn't pranced before.
Favorite (+) button pony: can it be bigger on the mobile site? [more inside]
You have reached you posting limit for this thread at 15% of all comments, why not have a donut instead?
Pony Request: A limit to the number of comments one user can make in a thread. [more inside]
This thread has just become awesome, not just because of the insight of the commenters, but the depth of its characters. See what I did there? Thanks, Mefi.
So the new show-new-comments feature is awesome! Except... when I load new comments and then hit the back button, it goes back to the post without the new comments, instead of back to (for example) the main page that I navigated from. [more inside]
