Tags in RSS feeds

I know we've discussed not adding tags to front page posts, but how about the RSS feed? For posts that are somewhat cryptic, it could help with context.

Comment quantity on tag pages.

It would be nice if tag pages for MetaFilter (e.g.) showed the number of comments for each post, as those for AskMe do.

It isn't really that clever...

Gaymover tag? Really? <sarcasm>I mean... that's so gay!</sarcasm> In all seriousness, can we maybe keep the casual homophobia to a minimum? Or if I'm missing the joke, please let me know.

Tags with stars in thars

While reading through this FPP, I noticed that ericbop had tagged it "*$," and decided to click on the tag to see what other posts shared that tag. It didn't so much work. A little URL manipulation showed that $ works fine, but anything with a * in it seems to break.

Stupid Tag Question

Please forgive me if this is a stupid question, but how does one "view tags" for a FPP? (I tried searching for "viewing tags" or just "tags" but the amount of entries returned overwhelmed by googlefu) I know I can view popular tags, but is there a preference where you can see tags (such as near the flag/favorite entries)?

mystery tags from the twilight zone

Could we get a <pre> tag or something so that example code posted inline doesn't get stripped (or is there something that already works)? I ask because of this.

tag clouds for insight and knowledge.

Inspired by this thread, and in an effort to help us know each other better, would it be possible to have tag clouds of everything we've ever written on metafilter - not just the tags from our posts - displayed in our profile?

Mefi Music Playlist and Issues

Two requests for Mefi Music: 1. It would be nice to have usernames on the tag results page. (e.g. acoustic) This would help users find other songs by the same artist. 2. The frontpage tends to load my system because of all of the flash files. Would it be possible to have everything show up on one playlist like the "tagged with" pages or the user pages? [mi]

Tagging Metafilter

Is there any way of having an overlapping system of tags to categorize these MetaTalk posts? So for 'feature requests' that could be a sub-tag of either the 'Metafilter', 'Ask Metafilter' or 'Metatalk' tags. So when I want to see what is being discussed about improving Ask Metafilter I start by selecting that tag and then start clicking the sub tags to get more specific. Finally, the reason I am asking is because I am concerned about the flooding of questions on AskMe and the thing I would do is have a separate section for technology questions as those questions seem to be at least 50% of all questions asked. Cheers.

What's the best way to search for a post on MetaFilter?

Howdy. I'm searching for a post that I think was made here awhile back of people carrying ridiculous amounts of stuff while riding a bike. I can't find it [maybe it wasn't here]. Anyway, in the course of searching for it I also took a gander through the FAQ in the hopes that I could find information on the best way to search MeFi... [mi]

Great answers are great!

Which AskMefi questions have elicited great responses or answers - the sort that just perfectly answer the question, or those where what seems like a long shot is serendipitously answered by the perfect person? Looking at the "metafilterhistory" tag, I found this and this, but are there others?

Mindfuck Tag

Mindfuck is a tag that has been used only once on askmefi. I'm truly amazed. More people should be using this in the human relations section, I think. I'm sure it would suit many other categories as well. If people were more attuned to what a mindfuck is . . . then they wouldn't be posting a lot of those human relationship questions, I guess.

New Category Request

Could there be a 'family' category for AskMeFi? I felt weird asking a question about my daughter and categorizing it as 'human relations', which based on my reading over the last year or so seemed mostly to mean make-up/break-up questions!

Tagged post not appearing in feed

I subscribe to a handful of askmefi tags via RSS in Google Reader, one of which is delicious (for when people don't use the del.icio.us tag). Any idea why this post hasn't shown up in GR at all, or am I asking in the wrong place?

Tag Guidelines

Tags: I hate how they have to be crunched into one word. What's the policy/ettiquette about using underscores? Does it break the database? Or should I avoid them just because they're not convention, therefore no one will know to search for them?

what is the deal with the small and large tags on AskMefi?

I know this has been discussed already and even used as an excuse for the guys here to show off their font skills, but what is the deal with the small and large tags on AskMefi? They exist but there's no script or interface that lets a novice change the size of his or her font in the post? Is this a way of regulating some from emphasizing words? Just want some history here... Thanks.
