Spreading rumors is bad news

When someone posts an inflammatory article with an inflammatory pull quote that turns out to be completely false and bad information, I really think the mods should add a quick note to that effect at the end of the post. Many people don't read all the comments and might skim the first few comments, but never see the correction. A simple note at the start of the post is a reasonable way to handle issues like this. We've had this discussion in the past, and I know the mods disagree, but I really feel like it's a bad decision on their part. Not correcting posts like this is encouraging this kind of bad behavior.

Final Update added to old Ask MeFi questions

Today we're launching a small feature that will allow us to update long-closed Ask MetaFilter questions. If you found the definitive answer to your question long after the one-year mark closed, there is now a mechanism to send us a final update. [more inside]

He's dead, Jim.

To update followers of the Prenda Law porn-trolling copyright lawyers saga, Judge Wright has just issued a catastrophic order [.pdf] imposing sanctions and making criminal referrals, entertainingly littered with Star Trek references.

AskMeFi amendments

Feature Request: AskMeFi "amendments," long after a thread has been closed. Maybe 3% of the questions I've answered, life goes on, I learn, and I wish I could add something to the boneheaded advice that was supplied by an earlier me, so future searchers see it. [more inside]

Where to put MeFi post updates? Discuss

MetaFilter post updates that cannot be posted to the original thread should be posted to MetaFilter and abide by the New Post guidelines. MetaFilter post updates should not be posted to MetaTalk. MetaTalk...it's for site policy discussions, bug reports, and feature requests. [more inside]

Ancient MeFi Octopus Post Update

Back in 2003, I posted a link to a video that showed an octopus transforming itself to look like its surroundings. If you read the thread, there was some doubt about it and I think we all wished that web video was better at the time. Well, a friend posted a link to a TED talk recently that shows this same octopus at a much higher resolution. [more inside]

Mass update of public facing info

I had this idea when encountering the problem of wanting to contact a metafilter member of their public facing email address not being filled in... How about doing what PayPal, banks and universities do - they present a user on login with a page which they click 'confirm' on to get to the usual start page. On the confirm page would be form fields with the information metafilter currently has for them: lat, lon flickr ID email address URL etc it would give them a chance to update it (and the email address field would have some *decent* obfuscation, either images ala Facebook or the current SOTA JavaScript). I think often the reason this isn't filled in isn't out of choice it's because the user in question simply hasn't got around to it, doesn't know he/she has a profile or hasn't changed it since they first enrolled. What say you? I don't think doing this would cheese people off and I think it would really be a boon for the site.

Did he or didn't he? Snort, that is.

RE: the infamous airnxt post

RE: the infamous airnxt post (which is now closed) an update http://ask.metafilter.com/27155/is-an-ebay-fraud-seller-free it has been a while since i checked back on the above post, but it looks like airnxt is still up to his old tricks, selling fake chanel handbags. oh, and his feedback is not private anymore. Two weeks for delivery! Received a fake! Sick to my stomach! Out $510!! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290069288442 he must be stopped! ok, before you post comments about how you need to check sellers feedback, please read the link to the thread. the guy in the original post was pretending to be a victim of an ebay scam, but was actually the person doing the scamming.

Follow-up post

Feature request: Allow a follow-up post on closed threads by the original FPP poster. I often come across relevant and important information about subjects I made a FPP about months ago, but the thread is closed and it's not worth making a new FPP about it. It would be nice if the person who made the original FPP had the ability to make a single follow-up post after the FPP has closed. The example I had in mind was this thread about Citizenre solar-power, and this new story Citizenre: A House of Cards, an important development that should be in the archived thread.

we bought a 1999 Subaru Forester

Back in December I asked for vehicle recommendations, and I just wanted to follow up: we bought a 1999 Subaru Forester, based on the words here and of a friend of our who owns an Outback. What it all came down to was good value, great safety, and even though I paid more than I wanted to I'm happy with this step up instead of a step sideways into a RAV4 or a junkier, older vehicle. Thanks!

a girl called Laura who had Chris Rock's old phone

My thoughts flashed back to yet another of the negative MetaFilter comments.

Earlier this year some Mefites were rather mean [mea culpa] to a girl called Laura who had Chris Rock's old phone. In an update she tells how it all turned out pretty good for her, thanks, in part, to Metafilter - still, don't be expecting her round here any time soon.

the option to be notified

Matt -

One thing that would be cool(and i thoughtyou had mentioned before) is the option to be notified when someone has posted to a thread that you had already posted in.

Examp: I posted a comment under the 'Portman poses' thread. User cjd posts a comment in the same thread.

Based on my preferences it shoots me an email notifiying me that the thread has been updated.

we've got this working with the evolt code pretty easily. if you want the code, lemme know.

thanks man :)
