Question Warnings and suspensions log should include suspended abilities

Comment Post #286757 Since this would be another filter, I don't think having the view changes is much of an issue: after all, it's natural for the "Positive" tab and the "All" tab to have differences, isn't it? Also, like I mentioned on my previous answer, "Positive" could be set as the default, making it even more m...

Question Newlines and formatting in user annotations
Another self-explanatory feature-request. Currently user-annotations are one-line and plain-text only, which is a little restrictive. I wanted to add a link to the comment that had prompted the note, and it would be nice for it to be clickable. Newlines would also be nice so that I could, e.g. hav...

Question Make user-annotations editable
Basically the title. There's no edit button for annotations in the mod-tools, so if I make a mistake, there's no way to fix it. (I hit the enter key thinking it would insert a newline, but apparently annotations are one line only and it just submitted)

Question Filter to show only positive posts
In the past and more recently, there's been an issue of many negatively received posts being posted, leading to the front page being primarily negative. This is, of course, rather bad for image. Could another front-page filter, "Positive", be added which would filter out the negative posts? Perhap...

Question Should tag editing be separate from post editing?
Should tag editing be separate from post editing? By that I mean having a specific workflow to modify the tags of a question, different from the workflow to edit the content. Intuitively, I believe that tags are metadata, meaning separating it from the content itself makes sense to me. On a practi...

(Reposting here for visibility) For the time being, there is a relatively simple workaround. It appears that Markdown isn't detected within HTML tags, so you can wrap the URL-like in a span or other tag and it won't turn into a link. `dead.sh` -> dead.sh `dead.sh` -> dead.sh etc.

Question Could we have a way to edit without bumping posts?
Whenever a post is edited, the question is automatically bumped to the top of the category post list. This is useful for major changes to posts because people can see that something has changed.

I'm all for changing the colors - usually, red is a negative indicator, which IMO doesn't fit with [status-completed] or [status-planned] or even [status-deferred] Purple would be a nice color, but it's unfortunately not on the official Co-design color list, which is used to style everything on Co...

Comment Post #277875 In all seriousness though, your suggestions are good. I wasn't really thinking about space, since blockquotes don't add much height anyway and I basically assumed that the height would be constrained by the hiding-extra-comments mechanic that we already have.

Question Allow block quotes in comments
When commenting on a post, sometimes I want to comment on a specific paragraph, or similar section.
