Why does this page display correctly even though the hack has been fixed

I found this page via the wiki, and wondered why it still displays correctly? Amazing to see it being tested and fixed in one page! I would like an ELI5 as well as a more technical explanation. Although this doesn't technically require community input I do feel it deserves to be seen (again in some people's cases.) (Noobs - scroll down to see!!) *smiley face emoticon*

Tag Search Testing

I'm testing out tag search on MeFi. Here's a search for "goo" and one for "music" showing typical results. It can be reached on the search page. Post any bugs or further suggestions inside.

I'm testing out a new ajaxy spellchecker

I'm testing out a new ajaxy spellchecker here on MetaTalk for the next couple days. Let me know if you find it better/more useful/buggy. If all goes well, it could be carried over to every textarea on the server.

RSS 2.0 feed test

RSSdorkfilter: Here is a proposed RSS 2.0 feed complete with timestamps, tags, and author names added. Here's how it looks in bloglines. Is there anything missing for any app writers that use the feed? (paging Rothko...)

New webserver at

The new webserver is up and ready to go. It's at and I'd like a few folks to test it out before moving the DNS over. To hit this server instead of the current one, for now you need to edit your hosts file, adding www.metafilter.com, metatalk.metafilter, and ask.metafilter.com mappings to the new IP. It runs off the same exact database server which is separate, so test comments will be seen on both the new web server and the old one. So far in testing the new server is going smoking fast.

I was thinking of using the new open source FCKeditor on all textareas here

I was thinking of using the new open source FCKeditor on all textareas here. Play with this demo textarea and let me know what you think. Would WYSIWYG editing help or get in the way?

Anything we can do to help keep MeFi up?

Anything we can do to help keep MeFi up? Because these frequent downtimes are annoying me. I need my MeFi in the morning more than coffee.

Permanent testing thread

ProtoFilter or ProtoTalk anyone?
Most double posts and lame threads are unintentional. Search doesn't always work. So would it be possible to have a permanent testing thread here on MetaTalk? I mean a Any Obvious Objections or Good Ideas I Should Know About? sort of thing; where unsure posters could test the waters before committing to either MetaFilter or MetaTalk front pages?(more)
