What other people think of Metafilter.

I think it's important for people to step back and see what all the political fighting and snarky comments look like to non members.

Those MoFites are dorks. They're way to into that whole monkey thing. I think they're all furries or something.

And I hate how they always do that little third-person action thing inbetween asterisks. Grow up.

Oh come on. There are enough internets for all of us. Besides, they have sexy girl geeks over there, that wear glasses just like the ones that Tina Fey has. That has to count for something.

Wake me up when the inter-species sex starts.

what it looks like to non-members is that their current online community seems more like what they thought metafilter would be when they first tried joining. monkeyfilter started out as sort of a mefi-in-waiting, for folks to hone their posting skills until matt opened the floodgates. but it didn't stay that way. monkeyfilter is a smaller community than metafilter, but it isn't a metafilter wanna-be and hasn't been for a long time. the different group of people who post there give it a different vibe than mefi. actually, many mefites are also posting to mofi, and a lot of those who started on mofi are posting here. i started there, joined here during the Great New User No-Limit Scripting Screw-Up earlier this year. i like both sites for different reasons. there remain those who are firmly entrenched in one or the other and feel protective enough of their home turf that they display their loyalty with snarky comments like "i wouldn't join mefi if you paid me" or "those mofites are dorks". neither sort of comment is in the least productive but both make you feel more a member of your current clique.

personally, i'm glad to be involved in both. you who don't read mofi might be surprised at the number of mefi FPPs i first saw in the lavendar - mofites are finding some good links out there sometimes well before they hit the blue. be happy that some there want to contribute here, as it might give mefi a chance to stop being the "All PoliticsFilter, All The Time" thing it seems to have turned into over the last few years.

fresh blood! good for everyone.
posted by caution live frogs at 9:49 AM on November 18, 2004


and we are supposed to care... why exactly?
a community created exactly for people locked-out of MetaFilter is hardly made of fair observers.
now that their members can join here, MonkeyFilter will become even less populated.
it's a small community there, no wonder people are supposedly nicer to each other. I'm sure that in Bumfuck, Indiana, pop 310, people are nicer to each other than in New York
so what?
posted by matteo at 9:50 AM on November 18, 2004


I'm a monkey come over.

Mainly because every once in a while, I read a thread, and feel the need to answer a question that's posed, either in the Blue, or AskMe, and have been frustrated by not being able to do so.

But I'm sorry to say it, the MonkeyHaus still gets the better posts, and seems to have the better community nowadays. Here's hoping the new blood helps here!
posted by TTIKTDA at 9:52 AM on November 18, 2004


If you're looking for good links, sensible conversation and a lack of jRun errors, then Monkeyfilter is definitely better than MeFi. If however, you're looking for a fight ...
posted by mathovvie at 9:56 AM on November 18, 2004


I think this is kind of interesting to read through, there are some people that have been harboring some pretty seriously hurt feelings that they couldn't get in here when they wanted to.

I'm looking forward to having new blood to spice things up again (in a good way!).

Thanks for the post, drezdn!

Half the time the server's down over there and I tolerate it, but if I pay five bucks I'm gonna expect to be able to access the site any time I want. I'll not hear excuses. I'm a paid member, dammit, and I want respect. And I'll expect fresh-squeezed orange juice at 7 am. Sharp!

posted by SpaceCadet at 10:16 AM on November 18, 2004


Well, it wasn't hard to see that label coming for this site. And its not just localized to monkeyfilter either. There have been some working very hard everday for the last year or so trying to push Metafilter in a hardline direction. And it looks like they almost have won.

I am eternally hopeful the new people will be different and we can right the ship and bring it back to an interesting site.
posted by Seth at 10:20 AM on November 18, 2004


don't you mean Vafanculo, Italy?

no, the Italian equivalent of the much-used "Bumfuck, Indiana" is Canicattì, which is an actual place by the way.
also, don't mistake me for anti-Hoosier. I'm a Larry Bird fan, after all.

nitpick: a more precise spelling is "vaffanculo", two f's
posted by matteo at 10:21 AM on November 18, 2004


matteo - not so sure. some mefites (as i already said) have joined monkeyfilter today. because things over there are not mefi. that specifically seems to be the reason some people like it. myself included.

i don't think it's going away. far as i know, very few mofi users who were able to sneak in here the last time membership was open have stopped visiting the lavendar.

(see, the reason some folks live in small towns is because they like small towns, not because they couldn't afford a place in the city...)

on preview: seth, if you're looking for more friendly interactions then you want more mofites here. personally i hope it helps.

I know as a new guy that this is an area I've been pretty interested in too: knowing the answer to a question but being unable to answer it is frustrating, and now that I'm a member, I can hopefully help out some folks with their questions.
posted by Bugbread at 10:46 AM on November 18, 2004


Horses for courses. MoFi may have started up as holding pattern for wannabe MeFites, but by now it's a different community in its own right, with a different tone and different obsessions and in-jokes and yadda yadda yadda.

I see no reason why any of that should change with our nice, shiny new sign-ups. Now anybody can go to MoFi for good-natured fun and quirky links, and go to MeFi for in-depth conversation, issue-focussed links and, er, macho posturing. Bonus!

You must not have visited very often. I can recall, in the six months or so that I've been there, a total of about six threads about MeFi. And in those threads, it was the same people whining, saying essentially the same thing each time. Yet, if you looked beyond those six threads, there were over 3000 other threads to look at.

they have an unnecessary inferiority complex over there.

I have dual citizenship. Sometimes when I go over there, I think, "Can't we forget about Them and what They do for five minutes and just appreciate what we've got going here?"

Perhaps it's a holdover from waaaaay too many English classes devoted to the subject of Canada's cultural inferiority complex.

I'm with shawnj - anyone who thinks MoFi is all about whining about MeFi hasn't been actually looking at the site at all. And I'd like to know who the "3 best members from April" are. I think most MoFites these days would argue with your choices, given the good ones we still have there (and the fact that *lots* of us joined in April!)

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Matt. (You did funnel lots of us by the way - broken script in April! Sorry...) The rest of you - I wonder if you're aware how many of us Monkeys have been walking amongst you for a while now. There are enough dual citizens that I think it's pretty rough to get all down on the other filter. MoFi started because people wanted to join MeFi, but now I like my two logins because they are different sites with different qualities and offerings. I don't see what it gets you to be bitching on MoFi, other than stooping to the immaturity of the posters there who have a beef with MeFi.

I don't care if something was previously discussed on Monkeyfilter. I play in the big leagues, so I don't have time to follow Triple-A teams.

You think people who registered at a site because signups here were closed don't read here? Your remarks (monkeys sure would not have read them as "teasing") came through loud and clear. Just like you read their insults about you on MoFi.

Was that a slow day, or are [the monkeys] really so dull that a comment that I barely remember posting is generally worth a thread?

And so the tedious circle continues. Your insults here perpetuate it, even though they're funny.

Orange Clock,

I see from your profiles that you don't have your email address listed. How about listing your email address, so you and Mayor Curley can continue your discussion by email?

You mean like "Why does Mayor Curley hate me so much?"

That'll be fun.

Pfft - seriously - No regular monkey is truly upset about The Hon. Curley's comments from anytime. It's all good. If'n you two wanna pissfight here, that's ok, but they's no worries.

What petebest said. The thin-skinned few whining about what the Mayor said about us are in no way representative of Monkeyfilter. There's coolness in both camps - and bitchiness, too.
