Gone but not forgotten

Was your lovely FPP about 17th Century buttons cruelly overlooked? Was your round-up of music videos by your favourite obscure band sadly ignored? Please wipe away your tears and share the posts you've made that you cherished, but which didn't have the impact you hoped for, that didn't get the love they frankly deserved. [more inside]

Decent Activity

Hey, so way back when, I wanted an "LJ friends" sort of view of MetaFilter – something that would let you see all of your "friends'" comments on MetaFilter, regardless of the number of favorites. I remembered that in the last few months and put together a Chrome extension, Decent Activity (thanks to Ian A.T. for the name!) that shows all of your mutual contacts' comment in reverse chronological order. So, if you are also interested in that sort of view, there it is! [more inside]

Anyone want a hug/affirmation?

It's been a tense few weeks, especially with everything going on. Would anyone care for a hug thread, and to say a few nice words about another user/s? I know we had another one before earlier, so I thought it would be nice to do so. If anyone has more details or ideas to make it extra loving, please chime in! [more inside]

Mefites and their MBTIs

I recently re-took the Myers-Briggs test, that old staple of knowing-thyself-through-answering-questions, and was thinking it might be fun to get some aggregate stats from Mefites. (INFPs, represent!)
If you’re interested and can remember what you got waaaaaay back whenever you last took the MBTI, please put your type into this anonymous Google Form.
If you don’t know what your type is and want to play along, you can take a free variant of the instrument here.
(To be clear, THIS ISN’T SCIENCE, and isn’t meant as a peer pressure thing. This is some fun wasting time by making a graph.)
