A kind word doesn't cost a thing.

A kind word doesn't cost a thing. How about a thread in which we tell other folks here how much and why we appreciate their efforts, so they can be edified by them? [more inside]

Label fiction please?

In this post there is a fictional tale. The title/body of the post itself does not contain any indication this is fictional. [more inside]

The Emotional Labor Thread shouldn't be the exception

Let’s talk about expanding our ideas of boyzone-type derailing and how to be the best Metafilter we can be. [more inside]

How is this awesome post and thread not chatfilter?

As much as I enjoyed participating in this thread about people's memories of 1985, and as much as everyone else seems to have enjoyed it (56 favorites and 121 comments on an AskMeFi thread -- is that some kind of record?), I have to wonder... how did it not get flagged as chatfilter? [more inside]

Post deletions officially getting ridiculous.

Completely harmless posts in a non-contentious thread. What the hell is up?

Could we forgo Dopamine Clickers as FPPs? Pretty Please?

Cookie Clicker Kitten Shark Heroes and their addictive incremental skinner box ilk are literally the worst things ever. Can we please not post them the front page anymore? I recognize that not everyone may agree with me, but you should. I mean really. [more inside]

It's so easy your 24 year old son could master it!

Could we stop already with the premise that simply mastered technology can be described as "easy enough for your mom/grandma/female relative"? This was the latest offender; it's probably less offensive than most but straw+camel's back = this post. [more inside]

Maybe enough Trump for a while?

It seems to me like there's been more than enough Trump stuff being FPP'd. I get the rubbernecking and trainwreck-watching urge, don't get me wrong, it's just feeling like there's kind of an excess. And I do also get that the US election next year is important, and the candidates are important. Still, maybe it's time to ixnay the umptray for a while? Thoughts?

Blue posts for deep sea green posts should link to deep sea green posts

On August 27, avoision made a self-post on the deep sea green about his Villanelle Bot.
On August 30, oakroom made a post about the Vinalle Bot on the blue, but didn’t go through projects when posting the link. Because of this, there’s no “official” indication that the two are linked: no highlighting on Projects, no little link to the project at the end of the FPP.
I think if a mod discovers the link post-facto or if a mefite tells the mod about the link, they should add these formal connections. It seems like good style, and a good way to increase attention for community members doing cool things. [more inside]
