Thanks for adding resolved tags to your AskMe posts

Related somewhat to the post below, I'd like to thank everyone who has started adopting the custom of adding "resolved" or "updated" tags to their questions. Browsing those tags can be very interesting.

Anonymous Ask Metafilter Archive

"Why does eating in a restaurant make me crap my pants?" and 994 other anonymous gems from the Anonymous Ask Metafilter archive. As AskMe readies for it's 1000th anonymous question, the community is hereby polled: How has the feature worked out for the community? Do you ever wonder how some threads were resolved? And at the risk of seeming too voyeuristic, has anyone ever thought about writing fiction based on the scenario in an anonymous AskMe question?

Looking for an animated GIF.

I'm looking for an animated GIF that was posted inline somewhere here. It shows two dogs humping and one throwing up. It's for a friend. Really. Honest.. If someone could email it to me, I'd appreciate it.

(Matt and Co., you have my solemn oath that I will not use it here, ever).

Bloglines + AskMe = feed error

Request: a way to mark our questions as resolved.

I'd love to see a "conclusion" feature to many of the askme questions. For instance, even if it's months later, I could go into a question I asked and mark it "concluded" and give a quick summary of what happened when I followed the advice.

Once someone marks something "concluded" it would go to its own "conclusions" RSS feed, which we could subscribe to if we want to know "the rest of the story" on many of the questions asked.

Followup etiquette on closed AskMe posts

Don't get me wrong -- I want to know how stuff on AskMe turns out. I don't think MeTa is the ideal place for that, though. What about allowing askers to post a followup in their own threads, even if they'd been closed & archived, which would put that thread on a new page, like the "fantastic posts" page we have now, which could be called "resolutions" or "how'd it turn out" or some such.

Fix the footer?

The red footer on Projects rides too high on projects that have a few votes (obscuring the names of the voters). Example of my own projects page. I'm on Safari. Let me know if you need a screengrab.

Plain text theme problem

Using the 'plain text' theme has a very small problem. In MetaTalk if you click on the category/topic of a post, the page it takes you to has the category/topic obscured by a brown box. (Slashing because sometimes it's called a Category and other times a Topic.)

The cursor's picked up something extra.

Recently I've begun seeing a ltitle dot just to the right of the cursor in the comment submission form (screenshot). Is this just an artifact of live preview or something? Happens in Firefox on Win.

Find this brilliant comment.

I'm looking for a comment because it was just brilliant. It was trying to explain why Clinton got flack for his blow job, while Bush can fuck an entire country and get away with it. It had two locked rooms of people and envelopes dropped in for them to read. I should have bookmarked it, but didn't. I'd love to go back and read it again. Ring a bell for anyone?

Pony Request: A MetaFilter FAQ whose answers are links to the relavent MetaTalk threads

Pony Request: A MetaFilter FAQ whose answers are links to the relavent MetaTalk threads that answer the question.

Many redundant questions keep coming up in MetaTalk and the responses are usually links to MetaTalk threads that will answer the question. Would it be possible to make a FAQ that points to the appropriate MetaTalk threads for these reoccurring questions? Maybe someone can go through MetaTalk once a week and add the questions and answers of things that shouldn't have to come up again.

Example:

Q. Some users have customized user pages, can I have a customized user page?

A: See here

The missing link

From the very "Post a new thread" link hovering above these very words:

Note: if posting about general weblog-related items, please post to Blogroots.com instead.

The linkey, she needs to go the way of BlogRoots.

Is that +1 geeky or -1 geeky?

People leave comments such as "+1 funny" or "-1 section". Given that this ranking system doesn't exist on MeFi, is it a wank, showing how l33t they are, and familiar with geeky norms at other sites like /. and k5? Or is it an acceptable shorthand for "I like this" or "I think this is dumb"?

Top 100 SF/Fantasy List

There was an AskMe thread that revolved around some scifi question, and a person posted in response a link to a top 100 list, which I think was a usenet post. It was voted on by users. I always meant to link the list, never did, and now I've spent 30 minutes trying to find it. Any idea?

"Add tags to this post" link not as described

On the page which shows me my FPP in the blue, I see a "add tags to this post?" link for each post. But when I click on that link, even though it's a different URL than the usual link to the post (http://www.metafilter.com/comments_active.mefi/nnnnn rather than http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/nnnnn), it looks the same as the usual thread page, with nowhere to add additional tags.

Guidance on the correct use of AskMe's [more inside] field

Uhm, everyone using [more inside] in Ask MetaFilter sort of defeats the purpose if it and looks, err, bad, does it not? Is there anything to do about it?

What about a quick way to mark best answers or solutions in askme?

It would be nice, for the sake of closure, if there was a quick way of checking what solutions were eventually chosen by those who Ask MetaFilter, after having considered the answers provided to their questions. [More inside.]

Three of four browsers agree, Mefi is broken.

Right now I need Netscape Navigator 4 to view Mefi correctly. In IE, Opera and Netscape 6, teh last words on the page are " of his recent cranial bleeding.". Maybe it's just me but I doubt it.

Pony: A MeFi This! link similar to Blogger's Blog This! feature

Feature request: a MeFi This! link similar to Blogger's Blog This! feature. The upside: easy to post. The downside: more FFPs on Metafilter. Good idea, or really bad?

URLs won't resolve

Ok, consider me confused. For the last 20 mins or so that I've been looking at MeFi & MeTa the addresses as they stand in my favorites list, www.metafilter.com & metatalk.metafilter.com, give me zilch & the MetaFilter homepage respectively. On the other hand www.metafilter.com/index.cfm & metatalk.metafilter.com/index.cfm produce the index pages as I expect. For one godawful moment when I first tried to access MeFi I thought that it was down again. Spare me the anguish.

New user message appears in error

"Connection failure members" bug

Hullo Matt, we have a minor bug:

When I load MeFi, instead of being told how many members there are, I instead get: "Connection failure members".

Is this an M2K bug? :-)
