Is it still possible to get Metafilter shirts? I'm going to some blogging events in the near future (April and then in July), and I would like to look like the cool kid while I'm there.

So, JaredSeth's wish to play Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay from the Gygax obit thread inspired me to post this, so I'll ask...does anyone in Tucson want to join a gaming group? [more inside]

MeFiTri: Are you a female MeFite planning on doing a Danskin Triathlon
? Would you like to try it (you can do it!) Are there other triathletes on MeFi? I'm wondering about the potential for a training group similar to the running and cycling gangs. [more inside]

Inspired by this AskMeFi
, it might be a good idea that we mail each other some hometown-inspired packages of our own. yes/no?

I'm looking for a post I read here — at least I think I did — concerning the natural evolution of online communities. The conclusion talked about population growth leading to divisive groups that clash with each other leading to the decline of the community... or something along those lines. [more inside]

A few months shy of three years later, I'm still knocked breathless by this thread
. I've been rereading each story over this weekend, and it's really had me thinking about echoes and effects, human goodness, and the astonishing strength of human resilience. I'm really grateful to everyone who shared such meaningful and vulnerable moments of their lives. Mefi is one hell of a community.

Pony request: For years, Thinkblank ran their great Secret Santa, where people would put in their wish list of <$20 gifts from a website and then a computer would randomly couple participants together and they would accordingly send gifts but wouldn't know who the giver was until six months later. But, sadly, Thinkblank is defunct.
Possible to do a secret santa on Metafilter?

In August, mefite birdlips
suffered one of the most horrifying and tragic losses imaginable. Then yesterday, a lifelong friend of his was killed on the spot in a car accident.
How about a little love from the hive thrown his way?
