Google Assistant screen reader skips to the About Metafilter section at the bottom of a thread, after reading the text of the original post. [more inside]
Need help finding a MetaTalk thread. I could swear I saw a thread about a MeFi homepage appearing on a monitor in the background in a scene in either a movie or TV show. I was thinking it was possibly the TV show Numbers, but so far my searches of MeTa have not been successful. [more inside]
Request/suggestion: fixed width Metafilter. [more inside]
I like the idea that everyone’s comments are on an equal playing field on this site. It doesn’t elevate or exclude anyone. However, I would appreciate a way to screen a comment before I attempt to read it. So as a feature, is there a way to let the individual member decide whether they want the “posted by ‘X’” before or after the post itself?
What if the URL field on the MetaFilter Post a Link page were screened so it would be impossible or at least difficult to link to the home page of CNN, The Onion, etc.? People could see a message reiterating the guidelines to post to something specific, and it would keep them from annoying people who are annoyed by these kinds of links.
