Does Mefiquote work for any Chrome users out there? How did you get it running?
Because we are having great fun in this thread
sharing links to cool purse sites, and we have been talking about the Meaning Of Purses
, and in the past we have done desks
What purse do you carry, and what story does it tell about you? LINKS OR PICS PLZ. What important things does it carry?
Gentlemen, you are welcome to share your manbags or fancy wallets, but you must agree to ooh and ahh over purses. This is a place of PURSE ADMIRATION, not judgment or scorn.
In this recently deleted post
we're told to go to the most recent I/P thread. Couldn't there be a link to the thread in the deletion? I'm not sure where exactly to go, particularly if it doesn't appear in the first page of the popular posts
tab. [more inside]
I don't like the "does what it says on the tin" phrase, such as employed by this recent post
. Mostly, I just feel like it's overused. There have, however, been posts where I didn't understand what they were about and the description that it "does what it says on the tin" did not help. I think we can come up with better descriptions. For example, in this post, maybe a pull-quote of a helpful tip or something. [more inside]
The last Nintendo console friend code swap we had was back in 2012
. Well the Wii-U is out now, and it's finally gotten an ultra-popular game out for it (MK8), so let's do the swappy thing. 3DS/2DS users also welcome, for those games that take advantage of the recently-added Nintendo Network ID functionality on those systems. [more inside]
There has been some concern that some of the recent FFPs about state-level same sex marriage legalization have been relatively thin. For the states where legal SSM is still pending, prewriting draft text and collecting links to background information would help us create more substantial FPPs that could still be posted in a timely manner as soon a ruling is issued or a law is passed. To this end, all interested MeFites are invited to use these MetaFilter wiki pages
to collaborate on future FPPs for each state.

Ok, so I work for a Public Access television station. I am finally getting to the point where I have time, and a possible team of people to help me produce my own show for our channels. While brainstorming for ideas, or whenever I am just out walking and thinking to myself, I often find myself mulling over the many myriad of things that I have learned over the years of reading Metafilter, and how much I can definitely credit the users of Metafilter for enlightening me on many subjects that are often either overlooked in the mainstream media, or are contentious current social issues that many times require them to be unpacked and explained through either individual personal experience, or through often very engaging discussions with participants from all walks of life, many times with input from actual experts in the subjects that are discussed.
So my idea was to make each show based around some of the fantastic posts that I have found on Metafilter, and I would like to use some of the information that users have provided. [more inside]
Today we're releasing a spot for discussing plans for TV and Movie watching (stuff like the Horror Film Club, the Summer camp series, etc) by adding a discussion area to FanFare called FanFare Talk. We're also adding the ability for new posts in the Movies section to be added by members instead of just me for the last couple months of testing. Both discussion posts and movie posts will need to be approved before going up, as TV shows still are moderated. The front page of FanFare has been updated to show the titles of recent Talk posts along with a new tab in the upper right to get to all the discussion posts. [more inside]
