Introducing the Faves & Flags roleplaying system

We've received a large volume of user complaints in the last few months about performance issues with our current version of reality, and so today we're rolling out some fantasy instead to see if that can help take the strain off. Please help us beta test this new initiative with the Faves & Flags Character Sheet Generator. Want more detail? Check out what little remains of the original game manual (or a more legible and screen-reader friendly OCR version here). [more inside]

April Last!

Just wanted to mention that the semi-official thread of this year's MetaFilter April Fool's Thingy (and the only one that continued to issue "staff tags" to every comment after April 1st was over) is going to be closing in a few hours. So if you haven't found out what your randomly-selected title is supposed to be, go there and leave a comment. (And if you don't like the tag you've been given, just refresh the page! It's so random!) [more inside]

April Frist!

It's only 10pm here in Albuquerque, but it's April 1st somewhere, so I'm giving everyone randomized (staff) tags in MetaTalk! Happy April!

Is there no room on metafilter for fun?

I noticed all of Eideteker's "APRIL FOOLS!" comments were deleted. Is there no room on metafilter for fun?

When the wiki destroyed Tokyo

mathowie : "... it was total unbridled chaos. I’ve never seen a wiki be so destructive." I blame John Bonham.

Wiki April Fool's prank.

Ok, funs over, the wiki code was totally killing the box. I just might keep it up for shits and giggles at a different location.

MetaFilter as social experiment hoax by mathowie

Does anybody know where that fake page that mathowie put up a few years ago when MeFi was down is hiding? This is the one where he claims that Metafilter was a social experiment in AI and that the vast majority of the writers here were simply software constructs. This was right after he got on the cover of some magazine, and said it was just some actor..... Thanks.

Metafilter merges with Kuro5hin?!?

This was just posted to the front page. The part that captured my attention was the final paragraph...what exactly does this mean?

In related news, MetaFilter was said to be signing a merger agreement with Kuro5hin to pool content between the two sites. We'll bring you more news as soon as we hear it.
