The last #WomensMarch MetaTalk thread has closed; I would like one open to discuss what's happening, and if anyone needs to throw out a question.

metafilter: a series of pithy quotes

Has anyone ever collected all of the comments on metafilter that start with "Metafilter: "... ?

Jokes, as far as the eye can see…

Please help me find a fantastic thread full of mefites' best jokes! That is unfortunately all I have to go on. I don't particularly remember the timeframe, and I assume the question was something like "Tell me your best joke," but my search is not turning up anything useful.

Just a heads up: we're testing out a new ad provider for logged-out, mobile site readers in Ask Metafilter threads.

Sixteen Years

After 16 years of doing a bit of everything under the sun here, I’m stepping away from the day to day of running MetaFilter and moving into the background. Never fear, I’m leaving it in the best of hands and things are looking good for the future.

Quick FanFare Updates

We made a couple changes to FanFare today. We added a show, movie, and podcast search to the front page sidebar. For movies we added links to buy or watch a particular movie at Amazon (if it's available). And we updated how movies are posted.

So I'm late to the party

Are any of you still using Ello? If not, where've you all gone? Where do I go to find Mefites away from MeFi?

Dance post

A few years ago, someone had posted a video on the blue of a woman's progress as she learned to dance, starting with clumsy steps and eventually showing an impressive routine (in front of a subway car, if memory serves). I've searched for this under every search item I could think of, but nothing turned up. Please hope me…?

Should have just checked here first.

Twice in the past month I've sought information on the wider web only to find that the answer was here all along. Turns out that noise in my head is my tensor tympani muscles flexing and that someone else had a question about that line from L&O:SVU a decade ago (they really did need a warrant to arrest someone in his own home). So: what cool things have you left MeFi to find, only to find them back here on MeFi?

Comics (& other serialized content) on Fanfare

On Fanfare Talk, some mefites have expressed interest in discussing comic books on Fanfare; the necessary metadata could come from comixology or comicbookdb. What do other folks think about this idea? And are there other serialized media (ideally with metadata sources) that might be good to add?

Survey about sexual orientation of surveyor changing results

A while ago on the Blue (I think) I saw an article about an experiment done where the people giving the survey would either make some comment that indicated they were homosexual or not, and the results of the survey changed based on that. I can't find this article now, when I have a speech on LGBT rights.

This Pony Wants A Job

Right now, it looks like you can make unlimited posts of jobs in the "jobs" section, but you can only post one notice of availability that has to stay forever and can't be changed or added to or bumped up or otherwise flagged that "Hey, I'm still looking". Can we....do something about that?

April Showers

I'd like to propose a negative- free month. As in BEST of the web. As we transition from Matt to Josh, I think it would be nice to re-visit metafilter and get back to it's core business. Best of the web. Let me repeat that. Best of the web. If it's fighty, don't post it. If it's political, don't post it. Well, go ahead, but it's not part of April Showers. You know what I mean. Can we spend April ignoring the Worst of the web? Is it possible? Are you folks willing to just find stuff that brings a smile to people's faces? It's a challenge. I'd like to keep metafilter somewhat happy. And give the mods a month of fun.

deddit

Given this FPP about reddit's racism, and with the notion presented in that thread here, I'd like to float the idea of a blanket ban on links to reddit on the Blue.

Length limit for MeFi posts?

I wanted to ask MeFites and the mods if there is any interest in having some sort of length limit for MetaFilter posts.

A sort-of-wake for Terry Pratchett

I would like to arrange a meetup in the memory of Terry Pratchett. It was great going through his obit thread the other day. Terry's books influenced me a lot and helped me think about so many things in so many new ways. And I think, it would be a good idea to get together to give Terry a hearty, joyous send off. We could all come togather, assume names from list of characters from his writings, may be even dress like some of them and discuss, drink and celebrate life, his and our own.
