Gone but not forgotten

Was your lovely FPP about 17th Century buttons cruelly overlooked? Was your round-up of music videos by your favourite obscure band sadly ignored? Please wipe away your tears and share the posts you've made that you cherished, but which didn't have the impact you hoped for, that didn't get the love they frankly deserved.

Metafilter Chat Feature Request

Would it be possible to have a link to the profile pages of the members in the chat room? Perhaps as an additional choice when you right-click their name from the list on the righthand sidebar? (alongside "ignore" and "private chat")

Decent Activity

Hey, so way back when, I wanted an "LJ friends" sort of view of MetaFilter – something that would let you see all of your "friends'" comments on MetaFilter, regardless of the number of favorites. I remembered that in the last few months and put together a Chrome extension, Decent Activity (thanks to Ian A.T. for the name!) that shows all of your mutual contacts' comment in reverse chronological order. So, if you are also interested in that sort of view, there it is!

FanFare Pony: No spoilers above the cut, please

Rosebud is a [redacted]! [redacted] is [redacted]'s father! Bruce Willis was a [redacted] all along! And that's just the beginning! What spoilers for that new Netflix season that you shotgunned over the weekend will you put up above the cut next? Stay tuned!

2015 Secret Quonsar Thank You Thread!

A mysterious package arrived in the mail this morning. My first thoughts was, "My Quonsar gift?!", followed quickly by "Who on earth would be that on-the-ball to get out their gift this early?!?!" The answer? My Quonsarer, that's who!! Thank you so much for the yummy vegan creme-filled cupcakes, the Japanese "knowledge cards", and the fun maps of San Francisco. Happy Quonsar, everyone!

Proper deletion or "Metafilter VS Reddit" bias?

This post was deleted for the following reason: Sorry, framing this as side-taking in some kind of notional Mefi vs reddit thing isn't great, the imperative at the end isn't really Mefi form, and "here are just a bunch of random good things from reddit" is too loose a net
I guess I'm not seeing the editorializing. Bad call in my opinion: I thought that this post was precisely "Best of the web". What does the community think?

Can we try being respectful to members from poor and rural areas too?

One of the things MeFi does not do well is Southern and rural states. Specifically, there's a definite tendency for members to derail threads or comments about the South with snide jokes or hyperbolic suggestions dehumanizing rural people and/or Southern or Appalachian people in the US. Even otherwise good comments often have nasty potshot asides buried within them.

Where else does MeFi live on the web?

Outside of the many aspects of MeFi on the official site, what are the various ways that MeFi gets disseminated, processed, scraped, repackaged, discussed, etc. on the web?

Happy $5 noob day

Because I live in the future, I might as well kick off the annual $5 noob anniversary thread.

Mefites and their MBTIs

I recently re-took the Myers-Briggs test, that old staple of knowing-thyself-through-answering-questions, and was thinking it might be fun to get some aggregate stats from Mefites. (INFPs, represent!)
If you’re interested and can remember what you got waaaaaay back whenever you last took the MBTI, please put your type into this anonymous Google Form.
If you don’t know what your type is and want to play along, you can take a free variant of the instrument here.
(To be clear, THIS ISN’T SCIENCE, and isn’t meant as a peer pressure thing. This is some fun wasting time by making a graph.)

Anyone want a hug/affirmation?

It's been a tense few weeks, especially with everything going on. Would anyone care for a hug thread, and to say a few nice words about another user/s? I know we had another one before earlier, so I thought it would be nice to do so. If anyone has more details or ideas to make it extra loving, please chime in!

110: Stealin' Lincoln, with Eyebrows McGee

It's a short podcast! By our standards, which is to say only an hour and twenty minutes or so. Jessamyn and I are joined by the midwest's own Eyebrows McGee as we chatter semi-hurriedly about a bunch of stuff from Metafilter and also Abe Lincoln's corpse. We cover October 8th-ish through November 2.

Stop! Nano time

It is almost November, which, as many Mefites will know, means its time for NanoWrimo!

Meet and Greet: MeFites of Asian descent

In one of the recent MeTas about race, I mentioned that I often notice other Asian posters, appreciate their contributions, and would love to talk to them about our experiences in a neutral setting. So, I'm making a thread!

In FanFare we've always discussed TV shows episode by episode. We just added two new ways to discuss a series: full-season and season-independent.
