Compilation Album update

Now that the Metafilter Compilation Album is actually shipping, might it warrant a sidebar mention on the front page? I'll put a little more inside.

Looking for articles on processes in community blogs

I started a Fantasy Congress league

I started a Fantasy Congress league, for those who are interested. For those who already have teams, how long should we wait before we activate the league, and start scoring?

It would be fun to have some sort of halloween contest next Tuesday

It would be fun to have some sort of halloween contest next Tuesday. The most spirited post would win some sort of prize? What would the prize be? I suggest five pounds worth of candy shipped to the winning poster. What do you all think?

are there any members here with Deviant Art accounts

I've seen members ask about metafilter members with accounts on other sites like myspace, last.fm, and the like. I was just wondering if there are any members here with Deviant Art accounts, who'd share a link? I've been wandering about looking in the jewelery section and thought it would be nice to peek at and fav some of you guys from here.

Also? The spell checker isn't working in metatalk.

Moderation discussion

Leon says: (There's a serious discussion to be had about how moderation systems tend towards broken as community size increases, but this isn't the place.)

This is the place, if my watching MeTa for the last month is any indication. We have a little bit o' this, in the flagging facility -- and even that is misunderstood by many. And yet people suggest more.

Discuss?

Moxie loves Metafilter

In light of all The Moxie shout-outs, which I appreciate immensely, I'm instating a "Moxie loves MetaFilter" discount at the theater. All MeFites who stop by will receive a bag of our famous popcorn as long as my wife, who doesn't understand why I'm always on "that blue website," isn't around! Thanks again for the support!

mefi cd swap - worth the wait

How about a round of applause for skygazer, missing member of mefi swapset grey from 11/05 who not only finally sent along the CDs, but included a short handwritten note, a tiny toy gun, an even smaller piece of black licorice, a guitar string, and a particularly meaningful (to me at least) blank postcard of early concept designs of the space shuttle.

All of this arrived in the mail in the midst of particularly bad week, so to receive a bit of human sharedness and new music to discover from a total stranger was great. My faith in mefi and humanity is restored. Thank you.

today was the unofficial deadline for cover art for the metafilter album

A reminder: today was the unofficial deadline for cover art for the metafilter album. However, if you are still working on something, please e-mail it to me soon. Due to the extremely low volume of submissions, I'll continue to accept submissions through this week, but after that, it's closed. Thanks!

megnut marries

I missed the joke pointed out by this post. The flikr 7-day random wasn't all cats when I looked. However, it did net up this pic of a well-known mefiite which will interest many others. (The ones who are most interested, of course, will surely have seen it already.)

the policing of public space

On metafilter, there is a bottom up approach to the policing of public space. Ie, citizens flag “bad” posts and then have meta discussions which really serve as trials by a peer group, if you will. The analogy breaks though because the jurors are not randomly selected and thus usually have a vested interest in the decision (which can lead to name calling, etc). Ultimately, these discussions are formed such that mathowie and jessamyn have moderating powers “in check” by the people. They can weigh in on the issues, make decisions, and face public scrutiny when a decision is made, especially if the decision is vastly unpopular. What are some of the other ways that you can think of to police public on-line spaces?

inter-media collaboration

Artists in every media, I'm thinking about the creative process, generating ideas for inter-media (is there such a word?) collaboration, and where abstract art originates.

Collaboratively funded movie production

(not sure this should go in AskMe. It's a bit chatty, so please pardon me if I got the wrong forum.)

Since I found the Sci-Fi thread so compelling I had a thought. Would you serious fans pony up, say, five bucks a piece, to help get a movie made if a studio was willing to match funds? And if it didn't get done, then you'd get your money back? Maybe done through an escrow account? I know that for the right production I'd pony up a lot more than that. Just wondering if you guys would.

How has your education benefited you?

Educated MeFites: (This is for my wife who teaches at an inner-city elementary school.)

Would anyone be willing to write a "properly written" paragraph about how your education has greatly benefited you?

We would like to inspire our 5th graders, most of whom believe that learning isn't cool. This is for English language learners, ie. Mexican, Vietnamese, Eastern European, etc, who are just now learning paragraphs and the need for further education.

Post here or my e-mail is in my profile.

Disclaimer: Meta-related because you folks are cool and smart. This is not a project or an AskMe, unless you suggest otherwise.

Can this thread become the example of how not to use AskMe?

Can this thread become the example of how not to use AskMe?

(It's also an example of why hit-and-run doesn't work. I know there are people who join purely for AskMe, but that still feels sleazy: most users have certain good faith assumptions, and it feels like they're being taken advantage of by these mongs.)

Looking for an illustrator

MeFi Projects Filter: Would any mefite illustrator like to collaborate in the making of a childrens book or books? I currently write stories 3 or 4 times a week for kids. I'm also working on a program in which school kids write to me and I reply in the form of a "picture book" story. (This is specifically designed for ELL kids.)

I have other resources for illustration, but I would love to give the first shot to fellow mefites.

Charity contest idea

Last week's fundraiser became a sad debacle, and there's certainly no point retreading that ground. But I really like the idea of MeFites raising money for charity, and I think it's fun to make it a competition. I came up with an idea for a new, and hopefully friendlier and less divisive, contest for charity. I'd like to hear what you folks think. [more inside]

It scares me that we can be so mean to each other

Y2k's latest post has ensued in a well, shitfest, and it scares me that we can be so mean to each other, We accuse each other for having an opinon and backing it up with more ridicule Its supposed to be a "community" working together to find the best of the web, like Matt dreamed siz years ago, instead "does anybody read the comments down here?" has turned into "MeFi members are hyprocrytes." I beg all of you to get over your foolish pride and start having reasonable disccusions. I know I should have said more inside but everybody should read this, its for your own good.

Is this what MetaFilter's about?

Is this what MetaFilter's about? I don't want to point fingers at eriko specifically, but come on, people. Are we going to have to institute a swear jar? Or a polysyllabic personal insult jar?

There comes a time when you need to step away from your keyboards, folks. Take a few minutes outside, maybe find a tree to sit under and do some breathing exercises.

I've never done a "call-out" on anyone in the year (well, not quite) that I've been here, but this really bothers me. People are suffering and you are arguing. You know what they say about not being part of the solution, folks. Again, this is NOT just eriko. You know who you are. I've never wanted to leave the site before today. But I paid my money; why should I leave? Why should anyone leave? Can we try to get along instead?
