Happy weekend, MetaFilter! Don't miss our August fundraising or this week's Weird Science theme! I really love when we do "show us your X" metatalktails, so this week I want you to show us the view out your window! Or, if you don't love your view (but I love seeing your view! No matter what it is!), show me your favorite local view in your town!
We're kicking off a trial partnership with tech startup Spell, Actualy to reduce the moderation load of edit-window-related site activity. Help us test out the new process inside! [more inside]
What about an "on second thought, maybe it'd be better not to have said anything at all" window? [more inside]
Is this happening to anyone else? I view a post, click back, and there's that little window hanging over the MeFi logo. Eh?
Every time I clicked on "Preview Question" when I was typing my most recent AskMe missive, a new window opened. Is that supposed to happen? If so, it is slightly strange - I corrected/added to my question a bunch of times and I had five windows open before I knew it!
Why does flagging a post or comment have to involve the opening of so many new windows?
Could certain links on a page ignore the setting in my profile for open links on a new page?
Clicking on "Metafilter" on my userpage ("X comments to Metafilter") opens the site in a new window.
Currently, there isnt any option for links in metatalk to open in a new window (metafilter of course has this as a customization option). I guess this is because Metatalk isnt expected to have a lot of external links. But I do sometimes run into some pretty interesting links here. Would be nice to be able to open them in a new window.
Anyone else having this problem with Mefi? When I go to 'comments', there's no posting window available and my name doesn't appear. So, I logged in, figuring that would make a difference. No luck. Nothing's changed on my end. So sad when old friends no longer recognize you. :>(
I know this has been mentioned previously (but there's no search function in MetaTalk, and I'm too lazy to look the thread(s) up by hand)... Anyway, I've set my preference for links to "Open in a new window". Problem is, the new window command is only applied to the subject link on the front page... not links found elsewhere in the post, or in comments to the posts. I'd really like all links to open in a new window regardless. Is this by design? I'm I whining?
