Metatalktail Hour: Quantified Self

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, aniola asks, "What data do you track about yourself? Eg., books read, places visited, eating out, etc." And why that data!

Alternate question: What did you do with yourself during the Great MetaFilter Outage of 2018?

New comments not updating after visiting thread

None of the threads that I visit get remembered, so I constantly see X new posts, even if I've just gone to the thread and come back. [more inside]

A little more detail on contributions?

I don't know whether this is possible or desirable, but could we have a count of our deletions somewhere on our profile page? [more inside]

No mentions across the site? Really? Has no one heard of this before?

Does anybody here have a WhatPulse profile? Would anyone be interested in a MeFi team? [more inside]

Band Tags on Music?

Music.mefi question: Would it be inappropriate to add a band name/artist name tag to tracks you post if your songs come from several different bands?

transferring data from www.google-analytics.com

When loading Metafilter or AskMetafilter, the content of the page seems to load fully, but the message at the bottom left of the status bar is constantly displaying the message "transferring data from www.google-analytics.com", and the icon on the left of the tab keeps going round. Using Firefox 1.5.0.3.

Easy thread monitoring, without throwaway comments?

Whatever happened to the idea that soon we'd be able to flag a thread as "watch," so that one doesn't have to post some crappy comment just to ensure the thread appears in one's "My Comments" list? There are many threads I wish to monitor, and few I wish to actually comment upon.

Watching Threads

How much flak will I catch if I start using "." to mark threads that I want to track on my "My Comments" page? I ask because there are several interesting threads that I want to monitor but in which I don't necessarily wish to post a message.

invisible image with a MeFi-specific URL

Linking to your own site in a comment is kosher, but what about putting an invisible image with a MeFi-specific URL on that site's front page?

Is there a plan for a thread tracking feature?

It struck me that it would be useful to mark interesting threads for tracking so I checked the MetaTalk archives and found that the idea had been raised originally back in the mists of time and then followed up much more recently. And yet I still don't know if it's been forgotten, abandoned or taken on board as an urgent priority. Would a "Features in Progress" page help? Or be a nagging schedule?

Can we get a thread tracker?

Often, it is complained that threads scroll off of the page too quickly, etc. Perhaps some sort of thread-tracking like that suggested here could help.

Thoughts on a new thread-tracking feature?

Oooh, new feature idea brought to my attention by Bryan Boyer: Letting users track threads of their choosing. So you come in, see some long thread about how gas costs too much and you want to track just that thread. You'd click some link, and I'm thinking that the top of the page should say "1 new link and 4 new comments since your last visit, 3 new comments in the 4 threads you are tracking" and I suppose hyperlink to just those threads. I can display it any old way, would that be the most helpful, or should there be a new page with just your favorite threads (a "MyMetaFilter")? Would *you* use something like this? I know I would...
