clavidvs didn't do it this year, so I will.
How many Trick-or-Treaters did you have come by this Halloween?
What did you give out?

So, after all of that effort and the many AskMe queries, how did your Halloween costume (or your kids') turn out? Did people understand your conceptual costume? Appreciate your literary references? Laugh or gasp... as you intended?
Any last minute glitches or bursts of inspiration? Did your costume make it through the night? Put links to your photos and related discussion here!

It's Halloween, so I guess this is a bloody vampire pony request. Or maybe an cyborg mummy pony request. Either way: Maybe Metafilter could automatically change direct links to PDF files to use the Google Viewer
? Or something like that? [more inside]

Ann Arbor, Michigan meet-up? I'm coming back to my old Midwestern stomping grounds for a bit of kith and kin on the third week of November. I'm sure to see old friends and family while in town, but I was wondering if anyone would like to meet up that week. I've been living outside the Midwest for 5 years now and would like to hang out with interesting people/get a beat on current happenings in my old town while I'm there. Anyone game? [more inside]

Anybody up for a last minute Sydney meetup on Sunday? emd3737

I accepted a dream job and will be moving to Ashland, Oregon right after thanksgiving. Are there Southern Oregonians and Northern Californians interested in a meet-up?

I am writing a dissertation about online communities, and MetaFilter will serve as the primary focus of my research. I need your help to better understand why MetaFilter functions better than so many other online communities. Can you spare 15-30 minutes to complete a short survey to improve our understanding of online communities? [more inside]

ProbablyReallyObvious Filter: While perusing the MetaFilter front page, I clicked something that led me to this
extremely useful two column layout of popularly favorited comments and links. What did I click on?

Is there a way to search within
an AskMe category (e.g., Home and Garden)? I can't think of a unique enough keyword that would narrow it down under a few hundred questions, but I know the category. I know about tags; that's not helping me either. If this doesn't exist, can we make it so? [more inside]

I'd just like to take a moment to misuse MetaTalk and draw your attention to this lame gawker list type post revealing the origin of MetaFilters own Astro Zombie

When the iPhone first came out, I wasn't able to post a comment directly from the comment page, I had to preview first. Then pb did something to fix it, and that seemed to work for a few months, but now I'm back to having to preview first -- is anyone else having that problem?

I'm looking for the thread in which a person was interested in putting the music in movies, and wanted to know what that occupation was called/how to get there.

How long do you wait before posting to askmefi? I know in my case I tend to think it over for a few days, try and think if I can figure out what people would say in response ... then post it and be surprised with the results. But I'm curious if other people are more spontaneous.

Very Little Pony request: There seems to be a character limit for comments in Recent Activity, showing '...' when a comment gets cut. Any chance of making the cut more noticeable? Maybe with a [...]? [more inside]

My Little Pony: On the Recent Activity page, next to the link "(remove from activity)" could we also have an "(end)" link that will scroll to the last item using relative anchor tags? [more inside]
