Moonshot EA Forum Feature Request 

It would be awesome to be able to opt-in for "within-text commenting" (similar to what happens when you enable commenting in a google doc) when posting on the EA Forum. 

Optimally those comments could also be voted on.

I have good news for you! LessWrong has developed this feature. You can access the feature by going to your settings and checking "opt-in to experimental features."

You might think that this will lead to a "party-of-1" dynamic, but due to the way it's implemented (check out the above post), quoted text in comments will lead to side comments for you.

I'd like to be able to search the "80000 hours" and the "Effective Altruism" LinkedIn groups for members from my city. The group member lists are only searchable for names.

I think it could be a good way to contact local EA-aligned people who aren't on our radar. 
Is there any workaround for doing this?

I believe you can do this search with a subscription to a paid LinkedIn subscription, like Recruiter Lite.

Yep, you can. 

(I thought you could do it on the unpaid version too but I just checked and can't see it. I specifically remember having the functionality to use specific search filters restricted to only people within certain groups when I had recruiter Lite though.)

The "Personal Blogposts" section has recently become swamped with [Event] posts.
Most of them are irrelevant to me. Is there a way to hide them in the "All Posts"-view?

is it April's Fool?

I stumbled on this flow chart from 2015 about how different value and empirical judgements might change what cause areas we'd want to work on and with which methods:

It's a bit dated by now. But I think an updated version of this could be very valuable for newcomers to EA.
