As a companion to the "what's broken" question, what features should we add here?
As a start, it would be nice if there was some mechanism for auto-linking trac ticket numbers. Other auto-link ideas:
I think William had already mentioned this, but adding support for jsMath / MathJax would be great.
edit (by evgeny): this page has instructions on enabling MathJax http://askbot.org/doc/mathjax.html, please take a look if you want to use math rendering on this site.
The markdown tips show up when composing a new question, but not when composing an answer--that would be useful. Along these lines, showing a list of all tags when composing a question could be inspirational when trying to think of good tags for the question.
Of course one can write a question and then give the post as its answer, but that seems a little silly (unless it's not possible to set up posts, in which case I'd be in favor of a FAQ item recommending precisely this strategy :).
There is no "flag offensive" button for comments, only for answers and questions.

Would it be possible to include optionally the entire (unformatted) content of new questions, answers, and comments in the subscription emails? And possibly for updates, the before and after versions or a simple diff of the changes?
edit: this should be working now, edited in the post so that you could see whether the feature works for you or not.
This is really minor, but it would be convenient if the subscriptions email headers had a "from" entry to make email filtering a bit easier.

A protocol for including a question and answer by the same person.
This site is a much better reference than the sage-support group. The questions are edited and refined and misguided answers move down the list (but remain there, just in case), and the search works (take that, google). So how about this becomes the place to share some tips with other users? But should we expose all the tip in the question or split it in two parts? And what should be done with the karma?
