Bassist extraordinaire, author/translator, lover of France, China, Oz, literature and cinema (with a PhD to boot), beloved father, husband, friend, and "big cat of cat family" (to a fluffy black cat), Wolof has passed away.
Because I'm tired of having this come up in EVERY SINGLE politics thread: If you were a professional wrestler, what would be your entrance music be? More granularly: what would it be if you were A) a Face, and B) a Heel? Which would you prefer to be? Which do you think you'd be more likely to be? Let's hash this out right now.
I'm pleased to announce that we have found a new tech person to pick up the reins pb's setting down; I'm doubly pleased that it has worked out to be a member of the MetaFilter community, our very own frimble. Come say hello!
As December 26 is Zelda Day, thanks to the convergence of four Zelda-related posts on Dec 27, 2010, so do I dub May 19 "Happy Nappy Day" thanks to the three bed-related posts yesterday (1, 2, 3) plus my straggler today. What are other days of semi-renown on MetaFilter?
Slack blog on Ask v Guess Culture in the Office. Link to the original thread in the first paragraph, along with a clarifying interview with Metafilter's own tangerine. The author of the post appears to be someone who has some familiarity with Metafilter community norms.
Renegade Librarian Jessamyn West On Information, Access And Democracy is a Vermont Public Radio interview with MeFi's own award-winning former mod (and moss enthusiast).
We're your top prime cut of MeFi, We're your choice! Who here has run for office, and/or been elected, or is running for office on Metafilter? How has Metafilter affected or influenced your campaign platform, if at all?
I'm trying to find the idea for choice resolution where a couple wanted to pick something, whether it was a TV show out dinner, and instead of just a binary yes-no, it was more like testing how much you cared about X, to allow for more nuanced choice making. But I have had no luck googling or searching on it. Can anyone help?
There's no end to imagination in the kitchen. Given that the cookbook thread petered out over a week ago and the caramel sugar thread is currently making me wish I was in my kitchen, describe the best thing you have ever made. In pornographic detail. If you wish to add the recipe here, those that are working on "Can I Eat This?" can start up the book.
I know that Fanfare currently supports TV Shows, Books, Movies, and Podcasts, but is there any chance - or indeed any demand - for it to also support regular Youtube Webseries / Channels?
At least a couple of years ago, but maybe more than a couple, there was a question in which the poster had been asked by a friend to learn to play the violin so that the poster could perform at the friend's wedding.
This episode starts with a chat with departing tech wizard pb, talking about his time on MeFi, blogospheric history, and the wikipedia pages of Nebraskan high schools. After that, jessamyn and I get into our usual what's-neat-on-mefi routine. This episode covers April 8 through May 2 and is just a hair under two hours.
I've seen mathowie pop up in lots of places before, but this one takes the cake.
This thread has made me think: who's interested in putting together a MeFi cookbook?
A recent FPP is completely unviewable. I tried - it blocks me from viewing, demanding an email address and agreeing to a complicated TOS just to RTFA. Websites like wapo, wired, telegraph, etc are actually impossible to view for many users, and I am surprised that links to them are allowed in FPPs.
Can we have trump.metafilter.com, and put all Trump-related content there? That way, we know where to find it and where to avoid it. The rest of the world will thank us.
Last week we tested a new feature that would let people add notes to their flags. We listened to your feedback and incorporated many suggestions. You can try out the new version in this thread.
Dear favorites, today you are ten. Despite mathowie telling us to "Think of favorites as an internal bookmark system" we've decided you mean whatever we want you to mean. Happy birthday. [as promised]
I'd love a sports section like fanfare.
Inspired by Greg Nog's comment in an earlier MeTa, I want to suggest Keep MeFi Weird May.
