Since tweets are being linked to or quoted more often than before, especially in the politics threads, I think there is a need to come up with a way to standardise these quotes/links. It could be either just a preferred in house convention or an addition to the buttons that are there below the comment box. Might also need to consider how to quote a thread of tweets or multiple tweets. What does MeFi think?
Howdy! So, scrolling through the video game trailers post, I noticed there's quite a few resident gamers here in MeFi. Which made me wonder: Does metafilter have it's own Discord channel? I think it might be a good idea. It would be a good place to banter about politics while queueing for some Overwatch or whatever, and avoiding the casual racism and misoginy that permeates most multiplayer games. For those not in the know, discord is a low latency voice and text app designed for gaming. It's pretty good.
We had a discussion earlier this year about allowing two Ask MetaFilter questions per week, and I think it's worth a shot. Today we're rolling it out, and we'll see how it goes. [more inside]
We're celebrating the launch of mltshp by adding it to the Social Apps options on profile pages (and deprecating mlkshk). While we're at it, we're also adding Ravelry support finally. Details inside! [more inside]
We've decided to move forward on an idea that's come up in MetaTalk previously: adding an explicit spot for pronouns on MeFi user profile pages. It's a small change: we've tweaked the free-form "Gender" field to "Gender and/or pronouns". [more inside]
Should there be a flag category for false or misleading information? [more inside]
I frequently find myself with time to browse, compose, and share content at about the same time of day. Multiple times it's happened that I type my stuff in, hit 'post' and get an error message that I have to wait, say, 18 more minutes, or 6 more minutes. This is mildly annoying. I suggest the post wait time be shortened from 24 hours to say, 21 hours or 23 hours.
FanFare turns three years old this month and needs pretty pictures as a present. [more inside]
As per Rock Steady's comment in the mega-thread ...thread, I thought i'd set up a separate post about this related content widget pony. [more inside]
My impression is that all of the infodump data is in the public domain. Is that license explicitly stated anywhere? And, if it is stated somewhere, could we get that statement reprinted on the infodump’s home page and possibly bundled with the zipped downloads. It’d be nice to have some legalese posted somewhere so that no one feels at risk of getting into trouble.
