So I can't be the only person consistently hitting preview and correcting all my UBB to HTML. It doesn't seem like it would be too hard to automagically correct the standardest of standard UBB ([b] [i] [u] are pretty much the only ones I ever use) codes to HTML. So, I'm requesting it as a feature.
Since the nature of posts and discussion is different here, does anyone think the display should be different than MetaFilter's index page? Instead of time-based (by date) listing of topics, I'm wondering if this area should take on a UBB-style of display (see the glassdog boards as a prime example of these), where there are subject areas, and discussion threads below that. That way, there could be a permanent area for discussion of bugs, another thread permanently dedicated to feature requests, etc., let me know what you think because it could easily be done here.
