Thank you, mysterious gift giver

I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with my life so I did not enter the secret quonsar swap this year. Nevertheless, a mysterious package addressed to my username appeared on my doorstep yesterday, much to the delight of my family.

2016 Secret Quonsar Thank You Thread!

I can't believe I'm starting this thread. I can't believe that I came home tonight to the most gloriously Metafiltery of Secret Quonsar gifts!

The thread with people opening their homes for Thanksgiving warmed my heart. Let's not forget there are those among us with nowhere to go for Christmas/other winter holidays.

New subsite idea:

It would be a complement to Jobs and Projects - a place for Mefites to post ideas that they, personally, are not going to use, and thus make them freely available for other creative and talented Mefites to run with.

MeFi cookbookfilter redux

In the middle of a year-end personal accounting, I came across this MeTa post and wondered: Has there been any progress toward a community cookbook? I am happy to contribute to, or even help organize, such an enterprise. Anyone else?

I didn't even know these were a thing.

Have you had an experience reading Ask Metafilter where you learn something about yourself that you didn't realize you needed to know? Just happened to me and it's SO COOL.

You do it HOW?!

Yesterday I was trying to explain the great top sheet/no top sheet schism to a friend and it occurred to me that there should be a page on the metafilter wiki that lists all the threads that have exposed the shocking practices of our fellow Metafilterians.

MeFites offering refuge for the holidays

In recent (often election) threads, some MeFites have said they're not looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with their families. Others have offered up their homes for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here's a MetaTalk thread to facilitate those holiday connections for support and good company.

This thread has made me think: who's interested in putting together a MeFi cookbook?

MeFi in the time of Trump - managing news

Like many, I was simultaneously hooked and exhausted by the pre-election rolling thread. I was very much looking forward to its demise. It's going to be a long four years. Can we find a way to keep the good and ease the pressure?

Tis the Season

It's the season of giving, and I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you, my friends, that while you are giving gifts, please consider your favorite web community in your giving.

We're podcastin' through the pain: me and jessamyn chat about MeFi, vent a little about the election, and talk about stuff like dealing with art vs. concrete activism and how people can't agree on which way to face in the goddam shower. This episode covers November 2nd through November 30th and runs about 90 minutes.
