NaNoWriMo 2014 - We're Storming the Bastille - Are You Ready?

Calling all writers and non-writers, whether you are a plotter, pantser, or anything in-between - NaNoWriMo 2014 starts in 8 days, the forums have been wiped (well, sorta) and people are prepping and fretting and tuning up their writing engines. Is anyone taking part this year? If so, good luck. [more inside]

Congrats, y'all!

I just wanted to point out that there are now 3,600 people contributing to keeping this place up & running..... makes me for one feel all warm & schmoopy.

FPP titles that made you smile or laugh

One of the more splendid attributes of the MetaFilter community is the regular ability of MeFites to write titles of posts that are offbeat, witty, hilarious or smart. A few recent ones I've enjoyed include this and this. While Y(humor)MMV, what post titles have you particularly enjoyed?

Usernames which match expertise

What are some MeFi usernames which match their users' expertise? For example, physicsmatt comes in to set things straight regarding physics posts. And backseatpilot can be relied upon to supply intelligent aviation-related info. Who else comments pretty much exclusively on topics represented by their username?

What was that thread: Story about obscure deceased Mexican folk artist

I could swear there was a post within the last couple years pointing to a story about an obscure deceased Mexican folk artist who showed a unique creative and whimsical flavor which he injected into the folk art that his village specialized in. Which, along with his non traditional sexual orientation earned some negative attention during his lifetime, but is now attracting admirers posthumously. Am I dreaming, or was this on the blue? I've wasted a couple hours looking for it with no success.

Greasemonkey Deleted posts script not working

I have just noticed my Mefi Deleted posts Greasemonkey has stopped working, is this anything to do with the new Mefi look or is it a greasemonkey thing? Anyone else noticed this?

A Mefi place for project collaborations

There's been a few discussions here regarding MeFite project collaborations, and a placeholder Wiki listing page came out of it. It hadn't been active since, so I decided to add on to it to put it in line with the music collaboration listing, and create some awareness/discussion for it here. I'm guessing this could be useful for media such as art, writing, video, and podcasting.

MeFi Music Collaboration: A Tribute to Flood!

Just a brief heads-up to get more attention: Over at MeFi Music I've launched a project to cover They Might Be Giants' Flood in its entirety to celebrate the album's upcoming 25th anniversary. Three tracks are already spoken for, so hop on over if you want to get in on this! (Thanks to taz for approving this MetaTalk thread.)
