I'm working on a post in which I'd like to use a certain article that provides useful and interesting background information, information I can't find anywhere else. Unfortunately this article is a PDF file... and in Spanish. [more inside]

A while ago I fell for that link (maybe an April fools daylink?) that makes the color of the MF screen change VERY slowly. It is driving me insane, and I can't find the link to make it stop! Help me please!

"You hit your favorite limit for the day." WTF? Can someone please tell me why we have a limit, what the limit is, and why the hell it's not in the FAQ? [more inside]

Apparently MetaFilter and my cellular internet connection aren't playing nice with each other. Is it me or is it MeFi? [more inside]

Thank you to all those who have sent kind words to us - they really do help us stay tough. And thanks as a whole to the MeFi community, which has kept me entertained, interested and mentally functioning the past weeks as I lurked, learning new things and following the drama.
Vivienne passed away in her sleep last night - I guess she was waiting to make one final point.

Clicking the plus sign to favorite a comment sends me to the top of the page and doesn't add the favorite. [more inside]

When I load the front page, I can't see all these posts here
. Greasemonkey is listing them as deleted, yet I can comment in them.Furthermore, it seems to be random, since some newer FPPs are visible.

Mass deletions? 79140
are all showing as having been deleted but none of them are closed for comments or given a reason for closure. Is my Greasemonkey broken or is your Blue broken?

Sorry if it's just something on my end, but I am having trouble loading the site. About a third of the time, it won't load at all (ask, meta, and mefi itself). And I just reloaded a thread and got this

What third-party Metafilter killfiles/killfilters — if any — have been developed, and do any still function on the way the site acts nowadays, all AJAX-ified and such?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the OP of the thread below me was asking in a VERY creative way:
Why is there a metafilter policy against telling others via postings what you received in MeMail?
Easy on the trigger, cortex. Just because you CAN delete and end threads, doesn't mean you should.

Well, after a hiatus of some months, on Saturday, February 28th, at 8 PM, the Phantoms of Soul return to the Marco Polo Saloon in beautiful downtown Georgetown, as in Seattle. And, as once proposed and well linked, and well and Tube attended, here
, I renew the proposal that we meet up there and then and yak and drink and eat and laugh and so on. Maybe even dance to the Mardis Gras Mambo. [more inside]

Since the "troubles" all of my MeFi feeds have been messed up - posts are being identified in several different feeds etc.
Is the best course of action to wait for things to correct themselves as the deployment wrinkles get worked out or delete the old feed addresses and re-add now that the new servers are deployed?

Quoting capabilities for MeFi mail? Yeah, I know, it's not meant to be a full-fledged mail client, but it's annoying when someone responds to something you said and you have to go back to your sent folder to remember what the heck it was.

The new server: you're soaking in it! We're on the new boxes now, post any bugs or weirdness you find here and we'll work on it as fast as we can.
