You can't post a link on Opera/Linux

You can't post a link on Opera/Linux: the "Post -> Wait" button just takes you back to the preview page.

Do we need a posting limit?

Two links to Ananova (1,2) in less than 4 minutes?

What about this? Can we frown upon front page posts that consist only of italics? Ouchie.

MeFi Posting Frequency

The posting debate has been thrown open. I've posted my response as a comment here, and would love to here other's comments about how frequently people should be posting and what constitutes quality.

Bug: IE 5.0 for Mac, text formatting commands.

I am using IE 5.0 for Mac. The text formatting commands do not appear at the bottom of the main text box. Any ideas?

Javascript fix

I changed the posting pages to use a new javascript fix, to prevent double posts. If it doesn't let you post comments or new threads, let me know here. I tested it on IE 5.01, NN 4.75, and NN 6.0 on win2k, and it worked fine.

Has it come time to limit users to starting one thread per day?

With the increase in traffic lately (27 new threads so far today), has it come time to limit users to starting one thread per day?

Bulleted lists don't work

I tried making a bulleted list, and it broke the page layout and style. (example inside)

User complaint

Yeah, there's a bug where that Steven Den Beste guy gets to post to the front page of Metafilter, multiple times per day, even. Any timeline on when we can expect this to be fixed?

so if there were a limit on front page posts, what should it be?

so if there were a limit on front page posts, what should it be? 1? 3? 5? no limit?

May I humbly suggest a timer for individual posts...

May I humbly suggest a timer for individual posts. Err, that isn't very clear. Lately there's been a rash of people posting 2 or three small items in a row which, imho, really thins out the collective attention on MF which leads to more sparse threads.

What if each user was only allowed to post one new topic per 20 minutes? Or any arbitrary time period really...

Perhaps this should be a feature request?

I realize I'm probably the last person on the web to have noticed this program, but HTML Tidy is pretty cool. It's an open source utility for cleaning up HTML: closing mismatched tags, etc. It seems that Haughey currently has to go in at times and close tags that posters leave open. I wonder if filtering entries through a program like this could save him from that chore. I'm sure this isn't the only utility of its type; does anyone know of others?

Posting goes to MeTa

Um, whoops. I think I found a bug. Click "post a comment" on the main page, and then "post a topic" on the top nav, and it goes to MetaTalk, instead of the main blog. Sorry bout that.
