This AskMe thread about contributors vs. lurkers reminded me of something I've been meaning to inquire about. A pony named Argus, who sees all users, named and unnamed, and enumerates them with well-manicured hooves. A digital Clever Hans. Or a realtime visitor count, if you prefer. [more inside]
It might be nice on the main page to see the number of new messages on a per-thread basis. [more inside]
Small Meetup Functionality Request: Allow the Meetup thread poster to highlight the post which contains the agreed upon Place and Time? [more inside]
From time to time, after asking a question in AskMefi, I get a great question but forget about it because of the waiting period. I'm not questioning this rule, but it would be nice to have the possibility to create a certain number of questions in advance, and put them in some sort of queue, so one will not forgot to ask some good question.
Not another favourites pony: Tag clouds for favourites? [more inside]
There ought to be a way to undo the "(remove from activity)" button on the Recent Activity page, since commenting anew doesn't do it.
With members flaming out in rapid succession recently (and I know that people do this all the time, but we seem to have a cluster right now), how difficult would it be for The Button to require email verification, say 24 hours after it is hit, before an account is actually closed? [more inside]
An idea about favorites. [more inside]
I tried to gift a membership to a minor internet celebrity, but I got the message "It appears your friend already has an account, as this email address is in use". Really? That's cool -- now who is it? Can there be a way of entering in an address and getting a username back, so I can add that account to my contacts?
I assume this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find it. So maybe not. So maybe I'll ask: For those of us who might like to get the cream of the comments without spending so much time digging through them -- such as on posts with hundreds of 'em -- could we have a "view only favorited comments" button or something? [more inside]
Oh please please can I have a pony and can he be a clone of the FAVORITES Pony, only this time we call him REMEMBER THIS and he's just for MEEEEEEE? [more inside]
In a large and steadily-growing community, and possibly because I'm getting old and stuff, I find myself having trouble sometimes remembering who said what, especially when it's a newer user. So, a possibly small and easy-to-implement feature request. [more inside]
Pointless And Maybe Drunken Pony Request: Can you please change the boxes in the contact section which allows us to describe our relationship to the contact so they say whatever term we choose, like the gender one does? [more inside]
Any way we can get an input box on the 'add as contact' page so that we can enter something that only we can see (on our own profile page) as to why we're adding someone as a contact? I find the provided options useless and I'd like to leave myself a note as to why I've added someone. Often, I'd even like to "link" them to a specific comment/post.

So Matt said "Full text search is in the works right now, and will be rolled out soon." Yayhooray! This is the part where I annoy him and pb and make their lives more difficult by asking everybody about their dream search features (and slip in a request or seven of my own). [more inside]
Seeing this response by the original poster made me recall this little pony request. The poor little thing has been left outside in the rain for a fortnight. [more inside]

Would it be possible to have preview in MeFiMail? [more inside]
Argh! An anonymous AskMe poster sent me follow up information three days ago -- on my invitation -- but sent it to MeFi mail, so I only just discovered it! Is there some way to make MeFi mail notify my regular e-mail? I feel so guilty...
[My-Little-Pony]: Is it possible to create a function that mimics the "best answer" feature, but is intended for use by the OP to highlight the OP's additional details/responses within the post? [more inside]
PonyFilter: MeMuGigs (and not just because it sounds funny), or, by extension, MeFiArts. [more inside]
Is using the "best answer" function to clarify the original question or to offset the OP's own comments from the pack really the best use of that feature?
Pony request: Is it feasible to get the current comment count in the rss feed? [more inside]
Requesting a "posted by" line on the entries in the personal "Favorites" page. "Popular favorites" has this feature and it makes it really easy to scroll and re-find a popular favorite seen recently (as they are constantly shifting up and down the column, due to popularity). [more inside]
This may be a stupid question; it may well have been discussed in the posts regarding the Metafilter messaging system, but they are legion and I am inebriated. But can we have a message sent to our inbox if someone adds us as a "contact"? [more inside]
Give me super-speed-reading abilities, or give me death. No--wait! I mean, give me sub-comments. Not death. [more inside]

Is it possible to sort or filter 'users near me' by fields besides distance? Such as 'number of comments/favorites/posts' or 'since last activity' or anything else, really.
