What system decides what gets sidebarred? While most are fantastic, sometimes an entry doesn't seem so amazing.

Contact Activity

I just noticed a little AJAXified link on the sidebar to show Contact Activity. Is this something new, or am I tripping?

AskMe sidebar, please

My Little Feature Request: Paulsc had an uncommonly well-written answer in AskMe. It would be a good candidate for the AskMe sidebar, oh wait, there's no AskMe sidebar. But there could be.

Meetup sidebar bug?

On the Upcoming Meetups sidebar in both FF2.11 and IE7, the Feb 8: Chapel Hill, NC post appears twice though I'm imagining it shouldn't.

Repetitive Repetition

In the sidebar it says "Recent Past Meetups". Isn't that a case of an unnecessary word? Wouldn't "Recent Meetups" be just as accurate? [more inside]

sidebar problem

I asked for the headspace post on the writer's strike to be posted to the sidebar. BUT I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT TO BE POSTED TWICE GODDAMNIT!!!

I do not like green links and numbers

I think the sidebar in AskMe as currently constituted is a big fat waste of real estate.

I can't be the only one?

I like the new /random in the sidebar, but all I use it for is to try and find good flameouts on the grey. Could there be a /flame, so I can have something to do on a rainy day?

Meetup list in the blue

I'd like to see the meetup list on the front page in the blue, just to get bigger turnouts (and a better sense of community). I imagine there's quite a few people who don't regularly visit Metatalk, but would like to go the meetups.

Where were we going again?

Is it possible for admins or orginal posters to edit at the top of a meetup post? Like in this recent meetup thread. It's confusing to read through the whole thing and come out with no idea of whether time, date and place have been settled.

Sidebar for partly-scheduled meetups?

Could we have a section of the Upcoming Meetups sidebar for meetups that are in the works but don't have a date set?
posted by sueinnyc on Jun 16, 2007 - 11 comments

Similar to a tragic wading pool accident.

Not a complaint, really, because it certainly doesn't bother me—but is there any compelling reason that the sidebar item isn't “most goldfish that die drown in their own urine?” rather than including an eyebrow-raising word that will remain on the front page for a long time?

Can the meetup listings in the sidebar be kept up for a few days afterwards so we can more easily find the pictures which were taken? Or should there be a separate category for this?

I'm not big on doing the call-outs, but when the question poster Mach3avelli asks a question and provides a big ol' great bunch of examples, well, just wanted to thank them for the thread.

I'm not big on doing the call-outs, but when the question poster Mach3avelli asks a question and provides a big ol' great bunch of examples right in the question, well, just wanted to thank them for the thread, and hope it makes the sidebar (which is NOT why I'm doing this, by the way). Thanks also to some of the stellar suggestions the hive has posted, and non sum qualis eram's description of Rossini. It's so easy to snark on people online, but it's good to thank someone when they do something nice as well. Y'all have almost always been so helpful, and I learn something new here everyday. Music is incredibly important to me - as I suspect so many of us! - so having a new playlist of music to investigate is a treat, and yet another example of why this was one of the best $5 purchases I've ever made in my life. Thanks all. *group hug, passing of Kleenex, etc. etc.*

Sidebar nomination

Wowee what a fascinating comment. Sidebarable?
posted by Methylviolet on May 25, 2007 - 20 comments

Always. ALWAYS Filter.

Matt, I have waited several hours for you to fix it, but the song parody you linked to in the Blue Sidebar is titled "Thou Shalt Always Filter", not "Thou Shalt Not Filter". And it is totally awesome... When I say “end” thou shalt not say “well”. When I say “Wen” thou shalt not say “dell”.

I really think this brilliant post by lemuria, although a few days old, deserves some sort of special notice. Maybe put it on the front page or something, just below the plate o' beans quote.

Sidebar Nomination OTD

I'd like to nominate this fantastic, almost entirely civil thread about Mormonism for the sidebar. It's really been an exceptional example of how informative AskMe can be when discussion and knowledge-sharing are maximized with minimal interpersonal snark.

I added a nicer meetup updater thingy

After seeing people post and repost meetup reminders, I finally figured out a way to fix it. On the front page sidebar, you should see a simple list of upcoming meetups. Details about how it works are inside...

Sidebar History

Sidebar: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago... 6, 7? I mean, I can type it in manually, but I figured I'd suggest it and see if enough people want it. And I'm not saying to go on indefinitely, could turn into "1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15 years ago" over time, as per mathowie's decendants' wishes.

Navigational links that go back/forward one day

Navigational links that go back/forward one day on the "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago." pages would be fun!

And maybe add a 6 years ago link to the sidebar?

Ask Metafilter's FAQs in a sidebar

Just an observation: the question which DSLR to buy comes around so often on the green, with the same answers usually (understandably, but predictably) given, that I'm beginning to think there ought to be a sidebar of such frequently asked questions (or maybe mathowie ought to sign up for an Adorama affiliate program).

Personal Response to incident

Why just debate the issues surrounding the Australian government's miscarriage of justice in the case of Nick Gill, when you can actually read Mr. Gill's personal response to the incident at hand?
