Thousands of moderators

Facebook has an open position for a Questions Community Manager. The text itself is pretty fascinating with superlatives like"anything you can dream up", "thousands of moderators" and "the full resources of Facebook at your disposal". I obviously thought about AskMe and Jessamyn, and she agreed it was an interesting Meta post. Knowing that communities start from the ground up, I am especially interested in thoughts about how such a gigantic operation can be handled, if it can at all. [more inside]

Metafilter advertises on NPR now? Cool!

I was driving home tonight and listening to NPR, when a new show started and I heard "....sponsored by Ask Metafilter dot com," with a little blurb about the site. Have I been living under a rock, or did this just happen recently? Is the Mefi empire advertising anywhere else, or targeting any other particular subsites? [more inside]

Please Hope Me Not Fail at Life

I've been really enjoying "lifehack"-type AskMe posts lately - questions about how to change one's own habits to be better at day-to-day life situations and challenges (How do I become one of those people who makes everyone they talk to feel great? from Chrysalis is a good new one). What are some of your favorites? [more inside]

Did he ask, or did he guess?

One of ask.mefi's most favourited replies ever is singled out today for detailed praise by Guardian UK columnist Oliver Burkeman. Bravo tangerine!

Doctors are weird amirite?

This is a sort of odd question that was allowed to stand. Previously it was dentists. Corner stores. Dishwashers. Something seems a little off.

I need [more inside] and less outside.

Can limit the main text area so that people are encouraged to put [more inside] rather than so much outside? [more inside]

A KISS Reminder for RelationshipFilter on the Ask Mefi Question Page?

Ask Metafilter relationship questions that are 25+ paragraphs long, which is a more and more frequently seen problem, never go well. How about putting wording to that effect on the Ask Mefi posting page? [more inside]

OpenDNS not properly resolving ask.mefi?

It's late and maybe I'm not thinking this one through enough but all of a sudden ask.metafilter.com redirects an ip that seems to be owned by opendns hosting a page that looks an awful lot like the google homepage: PING metafilter.com (174.132.172.58): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 174.132.172.58: icmp_seq=0 ttl=111 time=81.331 ms
PING metafilter.com (208.69.36.231): 56 data bytes

Is this just me going crazy behind my gritty contacts or has anyone else had this problem tonight?

Asking better questions.

How can I ask better questions? This is my first MetaTalk post, so just let me know if this is the wrong place or if it's somehow out of line. [more inside]

Where do I find the things I'm not allowed to straight ask for?

Is it really appropriate to ask "where to find people" to work for you on ask.mefi? [more inside]

What is the ideal time fo the week to ask a Ask Mefi question to maximixe views and responses.

So I've asked a few AskMefi questions now, and have noticed that they tend to get responses for about five hours, give or take, then the responses stop. When is the optimal time during the week to ask my AskMefi question, so that I get the maximum number of eyeballs looking at my question, and thus, get the maximum number of answers. I know that this may not necessarily increase the quality of the answers I get. I am talking about sheer quantity. Thanks!

It's still good, but...

Ask MetaFilter etiquette - timeframe of questions

Ask MetaFilter etiquette: I've got a ton of built-up questions and only found MeFi a couple months ago. Is it ok to post weekly (as often as I'm technically allowed), or should I give the space/attention to others with perhaps more immediately vital questions?
