Ok, so a couple of weeks ago I posted a couple of IRL posts
pointing out that I wanted to meet Mefites on a loosely-defined 'New England vacation'. Holy shit, guys! [more inside]
With cortex's permission, I am opening a MetaTalk thread to find fellow MeFites on Tumblr. [more inside]
Hey, I've been experiencing some extremely long load times and a few load failures on the site all afternoon. Chat seems to be normal, but other folks in chat are also reporting the site being slow. What's up?
I can't seem to locate a thread I read here once about an impossible riddle or logic puzzle. I don't recall the riddle itself except that it was math-related, and the answers were multiple choice series of percentages: 50%, 25%, 10%, etc. The ensuing metafilter meltdown over the answer was highly entertaining, but I foolishly didn't mark it as a favorite, and now my searches are coming up empty. Can anyone help?
Books on Fanfare has been discussed
, but in a theoretical way. The thread
on The Stand makes me want to re-read it, and makes me want to be able to discuss it with MeFites. May I shoehorn it into Fanfare? [more inside]
I have had three comments deleted from the thread re the alleged murder of Michal Brown.
From the OP
Escalating Tensions in Ferguson, Missouri

We are now entering day 10 of protests in Ferguson, MO, protesting the murder of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by local law enforcement officer Darren Wilson on August 9th.
We're approaching the playoffs of the MLB fantasy league and I saw the post
about the soccer football league. Does MeFi do a NFL league? [more inside]
I recall seeing a comment within the past few months that I am 97% sure was on Metafilter and am trying to hunt down--details are so hazy that I am having trouble searching/Googling. It was about an African-American woman from the late part of the 19th Century or early part of the 20th Century who was an early advocate for civil rights and who is largely overlooked but who has an interesting history. Possibly framed in a "she totally kicked ass" kind of way in said comment. Notably, she managed to get an advanced degree/degrees at a time when that was systemically very challenging. Ring any bells? Know it isn't much to go on.
Can we have a way to optionally restrict the visibility of a meetup location to the participants who've confirmed their attendance? Or to at least limit the visibility to logged-in mefites? Currently there's no way to, for example, announce a house party without the whole world seeing where the host lives.
Back in January, flapjax at midnite
posted an item about some street performers in New Orleans entitled, "just a little folk music for y'all
." I opined
that it was a shame that the performers' identities were not recorded. [more inside]
