Reminder to Americans: Not all MeFites live in your country, hence any references to “Thanksgiving” will be meaningless (or, for Canadians, will have arrived a month late). [more inside] posted by joeclark to Etiquette/Policy at 9:45 AM PST - 427 comments
The youtube video in this FPP is not available in my country (Canada) due to copyright restrictions. I've watched it before and would like to watch it again. Can someone either point me to it somewhere else online where it might work (maybe on youtube at another account), or at least tell me the proper title or some info I can use to search myself? Thanks. posted by If only I had a penguin... to MetaFilter-Related at 11:43 AM PST - 12 comments
Dallas sucks! Remember how much fun we had at the anniversary meetup in July, and we were all "We're besties now, let's do this every weekend, forever!!!" and everyone else was all "YEAH!"
Then.... nothing. Austin has met-up three or four times since then. Even Houston has planned a couple.
Dallas? Verily, we sucketh. Therefore, it is time. [more inside] posted by pineapple to MetaFilter Gatherings at 11:37 AM PST - 78 comments
MeFiChi: It's that time yet again, where we bundle up our holiday cheer, throw it into the Chicago river, and head to the darkness of Lower Michigan Avenue.... [more inside] posted by eriko to MetaFilter Gatherings at 10:13 AM PST - 66 comments
WTF, MetaFilter? Especially after two epic threads about rape experience and not knowing whether to trust other people, it seems, I don't know. Unwise? To post about this animation that's rather the antithesis of all that work. I'm really just not getting it. [more inside] posted by kalessin to Etiquette/Policy at 5:31 AM PST - 513 comments [closed]
I'm looking for a great ask.me answer about buying quality shoes that's probably several years old. There was an answer from a shoe store manager(owner?) that was very good, and I think it was sideblogged.
Which brings me to my 2nd question: Is the sideblog searchable? posted by theora55 to MetaFilter-Related at 6:36 AM PST - 20 comments
This answer in a recent AskMe made me very uncomfortable. I know about "flag it and move on," but I don't actually think the answer breaks the guidelines. It didn't seem appropriate to turn the thread into an argument about it, so here I am. [more inside] posted by prefpara to Etiquette/Policy at 8:18 PM PST - 295 comments
Minor pony/bug relating to profile-page links to facebook. I'm on facebook but I don't have one of those fancy-dancy no-longer-so-new fb-specific usernames; my fb page is still index.php?profile=number. If I enter that on my user page as my facebook "name", the link doesn't work—the punctuation is encoded. posted by kenko to Bugs at 4:47 PM PST - 31 comments

User registrations are quickly coming up on 100k (Highest user number is around 99300 as of this posting). Are there any plans to either commemorate the occasion, or reserve the number? [more inside] posted by mkultra to MetaFilter-Related at 11:36 AM PST - 74 comments

Episode 46 of the podcast was recorded last week on October 27, 2009 (sorry about the delay getting it edited and out). We cover our favorites from Projects, Jobs, MeFi, Ask MeFi, MetaTalk and even throw in a few Music favorites. Show notes follow.

Request: could important posts about the site be pinned to the top of MeTa for a little while? Or sidebarred? Or something? They tend to get lost in the shuffle, and then you have those "Hey, whatever happened to [whatever]?" posts that get closed.

I just noticed "has favorites". When did that start and why? Just about every post has favorites, doesn't it? Personally, I liked the old system better. I just read the number of favorites and I knew whether or not I should favorite it too. The way it is now, how am I supposed to know what's good or bad without actually going in and counting them? posted by Mike Buechel to MetaFilter-Related at 9:27 PM PST - 8 comments [closed]
