Here is a collection of graphics about the evolution of user engagement (posting, commenting) on the Blue (data from the infodump, 15 June 2015).
Suggestion for the process of completing an Ask question with 'Mark as Resolved'.
Our very own Kattullus and Ms.K are the proud parents of a son. A shout out to the newest member of the Metafilter community. Katullus, come share the details of weight, height and date!!
I'm having some issues with the super nifty MeFi Navigator userscript.
Calling all writers, trying-to-write-writers, and Nanoers - The July Camp NanoWrimo starts on the 1st of July. For all those who have tried Nano and failed (sometimes epically) maybe this will work better for you.
Could an option be added to automatically enable Dark Mode?
Join me in extending big congratulations to cabingirl on the birth of her little cabingirl! Fiona Claire arrived yesterday morning and everyone's doing great.
In light of the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling and the explosion of marriages, proposals, officiating proposals, I'm excited to hear about any mefites who are getting married or officiating! I've seen pictures all over twitter, but I'd love to share in the happiness this brings to our own little corner of the internet.
It's weird for me to post one of these about my own FPP. But I have noticed a pattern of every post that discusses weight loss/obesity/medical issues (regardless of the context) devolving into people talking about how yeah, bad stuff happens, but you really should lose weight, you know! And then people describing why no, really, they can't or have trouble, and being generally disbelieved, and it all goes downhill. This is a pointless and unpleasant discussion. But we always end up there instead of discussing the underlying political/sociological issues or what have you. I think there's a lot to be said about healthcare, sexism, and how we treat fat people and fatness in that post. But...that's mostly not what happened.
In honor of another contentious tattoo thread, I'd like to solicit information about what great tattoos mefites have on your body or have seen in the wild. Good vibes only. What is your good tattoo story?
After making two of my three most commonly recommended recommendations yesterday over in Ask, I was thinking it could be cool to come together and post here, in one place, all of the most useful things we've come across and the things that we find ourselves repeating thread after thread. Maybe someone will find something worthwhile here they never thought they needed!
I could not find anything specific concerning this in the FAQ. However, since field recordings of nature/city soundscapes may not meet the traditional definition of a "music composition", I wanted to get some clarification.
So, I've been striking out lately on getting my posts to stay up on the Blue. Not complaining, but it would be good to see the deletion reason. Sadly, I can't get the deleted post script to work on my (Safari) browser, or for that matter on Chrome. I really don't want to have to return to Firefox, which I hate only slightly less than IE. We have the automatic memail when a post goes up. Is it possible to get a nice pony that sends a memail with the deletion reason when the post goes down? Thanks much.
I'm not sure if this is the right way to go about this, but I wanted to express that I'm pretty shocked at this thread on Etsy banning Wiccan items going on right now.
Let's collect together in one place all the random suggestions from the past year for sayings people would like to see, types of merchandise they would like to see, et al. New suggestions also welcome.
I seem to remember a thread where someone was asking for clean jokes to tell their grandma. I found the thread with clean jokes for 9-year-olds, the one with clean jokes for the office party, and the one with dirty jokes for grandma, but nothing with clean jokes for grandma. Does a clean jokes for grandma thread exist, or is my memory conflating it out of the others?
Back in February, I asked the hive mind for their ideas for 40 things to do before you're 40 for a friend of mine. I wanted to say thanks...
It's episode 105 of the Metafilter Podcast, covering May 7 through June 2 and running just about two hours. We discuss at least two novelty birdhouses.
A much deserved thank you to everyone who took the time to help me during one of the darkest times in my life four years ago.
I have seen at least three really great posts on the NAACP situation deleted in the past few days. I guess there's a new Metafilter policy on this, but can the mods explain their reasoning? It doesn't seem, to me, to be newsfilter or "weird lady" filter, since the deleted posts have very good context and interesting depth.
