Hey, Cortex! (read to the end)
Based on a lot of discussion over the last year and especially the last couple months about how the site handles the visibility and organization of posts about contemporary US politics, we've put together a new sidebar tool that you can test out starting today. [more inside]
Helloooooooo welcome to another MetaTalkTail Hour, I am drinking a fairly inferior chardonnay but I used it for cooking so it's open so eh. Today's conversation starter: my favorite thing about this week. (As always, the bouncers hate politics, so keep that shizz to some other thread!)
I recently read an article - I think I found it here - about the pro-life march, which had some rather surprising details. Some of the marchers carried signs to indicate that that were both against abortion AND Trump, and some expressed that they were completely pro-life ... against abortion, pro-caring for children in poverty, against the death penalty. Now I can't find it. Help?
Not the actual physical Women's March on Washington--the MeFi traditional version of a month where we encourage women to make front page posts to the Blue, especially first time posters. More on that if you aren't familiar under the cut. It's occurred to me that we have a whole lotta focus on politics right now, in part because pretty much everyone with ties to the USA and a lot of people who don't are currently terrified of fascists. Consequently, the politics megathreads are taking up a lot of energy and attention. I miss this site having a lot of interesting front page posts so that I can take breaks and do things besides endless screaming sometimes here, too. And I remember our MonthByWomen events as being a great effort for womens' solidarity, as well as a really good way to get more voices bringing up lots of interesting and useful topics. Is anyone else interested in holding another WomensMarch here on MeFi? [more inside]
Did you protest this weekend or in the previous weekend? If so, ✊! Let's keep it up! And let's share our experiences and/or pics, if you feel comfortable doing that!
Mefites are a smart bunch, but no one is perfect. Tell us, what is the wrongest comment you've made here?

Duolingo has added clubs, to allow people to learn languages together. So for Mefites who'd like to all come and Duolingo together I made a club. Come join a club and we can all learn together. [more inside]
In the spirit of other chill open Friday MetaTalk threads, I'd like to see a physical object you made that you're proud of. Maybe a fancy food, maybe a needlework, maybe a welding project, maybe a model train landscape? Maybe a car made of a cardboard box for your animal friend to ride in? One thing you put together with your own hands that turned out pretty well! Show us: What Hast Thou Wrought?
It’s been a little over ten years since the subject was last raised (at least based on a search for “open source”), but I’m curious if there’s been any thoughts about open-sourcing the MetaFilter codebase or admin tools. (I imagine the answer is “no”, especially to that last one.)
