    • Alert me when someone responds to my comments

      If I post a comment on a page, it'd be nice to know when someone posts a reply to that comment. One of the great things about M&C is that it so often elicits lively discussions from a diverse group of people. As it stand, though, the conversation is hindered by the fact that one must keep returning to previously visited pages in order to see how the conversation has advanced. A notice in my Inbox that says "someone has replied to your comment on [insert link here]" would be perfect.

      • Mark videos which are blocked in certain countries

        Many video hosting sites are restricting their video playback to only certain countries. By marking them users could understand why their videos aren't playing and avoid them.

        • Allow ways to "reintroduce" links

          Too often, quality links fall through the crack of the Latest Links section when no votes have been cast. This leads to a bad problem. A) The quality link will not reach the headline and will be overlooked by many people, and B) Any attempts to submit the link again after it was "missed" simply creates a mountain of duplicates in the system. Brainstorming ways to do this

              • new look is sterile

                I like the larger videos and what seem like faster downloads
                But I mess the ratings and the feeling that there seemed to be a community of people who came, read, commented and posted links.

                The new look seems sterile, and is less inviting for me to want to return again and again

                I also miss the categories

                • Allow us to suggest old favorite headlines

                  I remember some great headlines from months and even years past. I can't submit them because they are repeats. I would like to suggest they be re-evaluated by the community as possible headlines again. Credit would go to original submitter.
                  See the "Best of M&C" for some of the contenders.

                    • Use inline comment forms

                      Instead of going to a new page to create a comment, provide a form on the comment page itself and have it process the information in place.

                      • Allow non-moderators to vote on links

                        Please allow people other than moderators to vote on links. Very few of my submissions get posted I can only conclude that most of the moderators have different tastes than my own. I'm sure other people have encountered this problem. We need a way to counteract this flaw!

                        • Use a single page for submitting links

                          Instead of going through a three page process, reuse the same page for the processing of each stage of the link submit process.

                          • Figure out why the games are always rated so poorly

                            Realistically, not every game could possibly be that bad. Is it possible that there is one person who consistently rates every game as low as possible? Maybe there is a vindictive gaming blogger about? Maybe he created a game once, and it got shot down, and his revenge is rating every other game poorly to get back at the gaming community or something. I don't know.

                            • change playlist submission

                              I don't understand the current system at all. Why can't I submit a playlist with multiple vids in one go? Right now I have to upload every video seperately and only permanent or headline playlists even show up in the latest links section at all... Is moderation more important in playlists than for single vids?

                                Granted, I'm new at this, but I've already had several "I should have had a V8" moments after posting less-than-immaculate user generated content. Moderators have only applied mild canings as punishment thus far, but it would be nice if we could correct our own flubs.

                                        • Compatibility with HTTPS Everywhere and Youtube

                                          HTTPS Everywhere (https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere) is a Firefox extension that enables https wherever possible. The encrypted connection to embedded Youtube videos (via https://www.youtube.com/) doesn't work on this website, but it would be nice if it did.
