Touch My Pony (iOS)
Is there anything that can be done about being locked out of editing a draft post after changing tabs or exiting the editing box on iOS Safari? [more inside]
New Posts / Bottom of Page Navigation UI
I ran into these UI/UX issues in the politics megathreads, and am frustrated by them again in the coronavirus threads. Can any of these be improved? [more inside]
Add more space between Favourites link and Add Favourites button
On a touchscreen (iPhone XS portrait mode), about half the time I try to favourite a comment, I end up clicking through to the list of who’s favourited it. I don’t *think* I have particularly fat fingers... do other folks run into this? Any chance of adding an extra em of space there on mobile?
Pony - link to active threads no longer on the first page
As a frequent reader and occasional commentator on the Brexit threads, it's always seemed odd to me that we have a sidebar dedicated to US politics threads - and who would be masochistic enough to want to read the megathread from three iterations ago?? - but we don't have this functionality for other similar, comment-heavy threads that run on beyond their time on the front page. Could we change the US politics sidebar to instead reflect all threads with a longer lifespan? [more inside]
Jumping Pony on Mobile
The jump-down anchor visible on posts on mobile takes you all the way down to the tags. I imagine most people use it like I do: to get to the comment box and/or last comment more quickly. Could this be adjusted to remove the need to scroll up each time? [more inside]
Can we get a bigger text box on Mobile Modern?
The text box for posting comments on mobile (I'm talking about Modern theme here; Classic has similar but slightly different issues) is really small. It makes it hard for me to write more than a couple sentences without losing track of what I was talking about. Sometimes I just give up. Can it be bigger? [more inside]
Minorest pony request! Natural-language new-comments cue
It must be the old UX instincts acting up in me, but I'm finally moved to ask about a feature of the beloved site which has been irking me for quite some time: the clipped engineerese in which the notice "7 new comments — show" is expressed. [more inside]
Pony: "X users favorited" mouseover tooltip
Might it be possible to have the tooltip that shows up when you mouseover the "x users marked as favorite" display the usernames that have favorited it up to that point. I expect you'd have to limit the total number to like...the first ten, or something? I guess it's a UX behavior that I expected but didn't see.
Tagging Users In Comments and Posts
I know that things are rough right now, and Metafilter is understaffed and all that (everybody donate $10 right now!), but I was hoping that maybe there could be a way to tag other users easily a la Facebook and Twitter, etc, so that if we add an @ in a comment or post, we could just add the username and the name would link to that person's profile.
