RSS Feeds for MeTa and AskMe
I've just started playing around with NetNewsWire Lite, and was wondering... are there RSS feeds for MetaTalk and AskMe?

I've been searching, but maybe I've been looking in the wrong place...

Thanks.

Moving metafilter to new server
Moving on up... If all goes well, I'll start moving everything over to our new servers later today. When that happens, I'll be shutting the site off during the move (to conserve bandwidth for moving actual files). Just a heads up that the site may be down between now and say, Monday at the latest.

nice followup
A new Slate article is a nice followup to a previous MeTa discussion. It deals so directly with the substance of mine and amberglow's conversation (and others, of course), that it's a little disconcerting. I remain skeptical of the "media lifts story ideas from MeFi", but you have to wonder.

full moon and MeFi craziness
Does anyone else feel that there may be a correlation between Metafilter craziness / testiness and the full moon (not to mention the eclipse)? Do any budding statisticians feel like analysing Metatalk posting frequency against lunar phase? Is Miguel a werewolf?

Come one, come all, celebrate the end of the election season and, perhaps, the start of bets on whether Rehnquist will survive to cast the deciding vote.

Central Ohio/Columbus Mefites: Anyone up for a Meetup? I've somehow become the organizer so I have the power to change dates and places. The only thing I cannot do is force people to join and show up.

As of right now the next event is set for Tuesday (10/2) night at 8:00, but at no specific venue. While it might be interesting to hang out and watch the election results roll in we might do better to change it to another day. Any ideas?

Election fatigue.
Election Fatigue. Could we put all the US Election links and discussion in just 1 front page post per day. Tempers are flaring, and the level of discourse is not improving. The moratorium was not successful. Besides, sometimes I want to reference a comment or link, and can't find it in the welter of election postings.

Dragging poster's previous answers in is not cool
"You also tried to fill a zippo with butane, so I'll reserve judgement." Everyone will likely tell me I've got my panties in a wad as that is the common response here at MeTa, but it'd be great if people didn't attempt to discredit the experience and advice of others on AskMe based on unrelated advice threads. Having to worry someone's going to throw your history of questions in your face later as an indication you are stupid or unable to give advice to others on different topics seems a bit shady. I'm not saying this is an established pattern, just that it'd be helpful to keep in mind.

Thank God It's Over (we hope): post-electionfilter wrap party for Seattle MeFites and blog-worlders is proposed for Saturday evening, November 6, at the Elysian (again). Please offer counter-proposals, including date changes, here. Your event organizers are yours truly and the elusive Danelope, currently headed off to stir up pre-election trouble in an undisclosed location.

I'll post a final determination in this thread on Wednesday of this week and set up tools (evite, prolly, unless someone has a better idea) subsequent to that time.

Let's take stock for a moment. We all know that MeFi is really, really slow, and really unreliable. Recently (for me at least), it's sometimes been unusably slow. I'm genuinely interested as to when Matt thinks he'll have enough money to improve the site. How is the ad revenue going? Are there any plans to charge for new membership?

US politics moratorium request
Matt, can we have an official "Day Without US Politics"--perhaps this Friday? I am so sick of the tired wrangling about how much of the site is USElectionFilter, and how wonderful all the random "cool web stuff" used to be.

Bad Bush thread.
Bush is Hitler. Well, I'm glad that's settled.

The post includes scintillating links to the front page of foxnews.com and to a NY Times editorial. The comments include "you never should have been born", "prayer breakfasts take us closer to forced reeducation camps for gays", (this comment met with lots of approval) "you're an idiot" and "Bush is Hitler"(the phrase "a normal Christian guy on a power trip" is a reference to an earlier comment by skallas that Hitler was just a normal Christian guy on a power trip). There’s nothing redeeming here. Will you delete this please, Matt?

I know that the duration of a question's stay on the AskMe front page has been discussed here before, but at the moment there have been 45 (give or take) questions asked today, and only the most recent 25 are displayed. Perhaps the front page should display at least all of a given days questions, even if they are more than 25?

Also, on the AskMe front page, anonymous questions are posted by anonymous, and on the archive pages they're posted by Anonymous Ask Metafilter.

With all the recent talk of Anonymous Questions on AskMe, I thought I'd learn me some php, and create a supplementary website where people can pose anonymous questions to be asked on AskMe by the more brazen metafilter members.
