MetaWhat? MetaWho? MetaHuh?

I wanted to know what parts of this community do you sometimes forget, neglect, or outright ignore? Maybe it's lack of interest or maybe it's just something you keep forgetting exists? FanFare? Jobs? AskMeFi? Labs? Chat? Podcast? Are you only on the blue? What part of MetaFilter is pushed to the side?

2017 Holiday Movie Club

It's time to organize the Holiday Movie Club for 2017! The Club runs roughly from American Thanksgiving (Thursday, NOV 23) through New Years Eve. Go to the 2017 organization thread to see suggested movies or add a suggestion, and go to the Holiday Movie Club page to see what we've already watched and add a movie to the calendar

Narrative Games in Fanfare

As discussed in this Fanfare Talk post, there are some heavily narrative games that would benefit from Fanfare discussion. The rationale is that release threads on the Blue aren't really appropriate, because of the spoiler content, and (in terms of format) these games are similar to movies, shows, and books, in the way that discussion revolves much more around the plot and characters rather than game mechanics. I understand the reluctance to expand Fanfare any more than its current scope, but I think it's worth having the conversation about narrative games as an exception. [more inside]

Special Events in Fanfare

Can we users have the power to create Fanfare Special Events? Right now it's not in the dropdown list; it appears only mods can make them? I was thinking of making one for the Golden Globes. The reason for this is Kerry Washington's lipstick was really amazing

I don't know how to use FanFare or Where are all the Gilmore Girls??

Um, I have never used FanFare so i don't know if I'm just not looking right or if there really isn't a group WAITING IMPATIENTLY FOR GILMORE GIRLS YEAR IN THE LIFE!!!! or if it just doesn't work like that at all. I can only find old discussions about specific episodes. [more inside]

World Series on Fanfare?

Is there a possibility that we could have some open threads on FanFare for the upcoming World Series? There are several teams in the mix to this point whose participation could be historic, so interest will quite possibly be higher than ever. I think we did the Olympics and the World Cup, IIRC, so this wouldn't be unprecedented. Is that a thing we could do?

FanFare stats?

I was looking through the trusty Infodumpster and realized it has never had FanFare added in. While I'm fuzzy on the specifics, I am aware in a vague way that the Infodumpster isn't an "official" Mefi thing, though it comes from official MeFi data or some such. In any case, will FF ever be added to that data and/or Infodumpster?

Books in Fanfare

Since the rollout of Books in Fanfare roughly nine months ago, only about ten people or so have had permission to post them; when is the site looking to roll out the Fanfare Book posting-privilege to the entire userbase?

Would it make more sense to put movie trailers on FanFare?

It seems like posts for movie trailers lead to discussions that are more consistent with FanFare than Metafilter. Why not put them on FanFare instead?

Albums on Fanfare

The new Avalanches album is live-streaming, but the thread has closed. While a new post would be reasonable, I’m feeling spurred to ask: any chance of getting albums added to fanfare someday? musicbrainz and discogs would both be candidate sites for metadata.

Fanfare posts showing as deleted but aren't

There are posts in Fanfare showing as deleted, but there is no deletion reason showing, and if I click on them they are open for comments. Currently, Two-Lane Blacktop, Horror Club: Calvaire, and Shut Up And Drive show as deleted (from the top few posts.) Firfefox 44.0, Ubuntu latest version. (I have clicked for community input to see if anyone else has this issue on other browsers and OS's.)

Should Debates (and other unique events) be diverted to Fanfare?

Currently things like political debates (and similar unique events, such as Apple announcements) tend to play out in related threads on the Blue. Since that just adds to (usually) already-long threads, wouldn't it make sense to require that dedicated posts be made on the Purple? (I'm not alone in thinking so.)

Let's take clubs to the next level: Groups

Now that the book clubs are more or less up and running, why not kick them up a notch and make something like "Metafilter Groups"? An online meeting space to organize, discuss, and experience group activities (like reading books, doing online courses, playing video games, learning stuff, etc.) together with the nice folks here at MeFi.

Tiny Pony

I'm a big fan of the 'popular favorites' page, but at the moment, the comments half features a number of posts from the Star Wars Fanfare thread. At least one of which contains about as large a spoiler as I can imagine - it kind of sucked to learn how the movie ends when I was just checking to see if Greg Nog made any good good jokes this week. Should Fanfare comments maybe be ineligible for that particular page?

I guess we really have Bryan Fuller to blame for this

I know most folks paid to join MetaFilter to join the conversation on the blue, and I know plenty other folks paid to join just to Ask some questions (or give some answers). This here, though, is the first I've seen of someone joining the site strictly for the discussion in FanFare. Do you know of any earlier instances or did queenofbithynia just make a new entry into our record books?

MyFanFare RSS feed?

I do a lot of my MeFi browsing through an RSS reader (NewsBlur if anybody cares). One page I cannot find an RSS feed for is MyFanFare, which is a great thing that could be made better IMO if it came in the shape of an RSS feed. Is there a pony frolicking in the fields nearby MeFi HQ that could fulfill this need? Are there others out there who also feel this pony would make a good addition to the MeFi stables?

Is this a problem with FanFare?

Perhaps this is confirmation bias, but it seems to me that many FanFare threads have descended into “this show or movie is bad, and you are a bad person for watching it.” This, despite that fact that the people making these statements are clearly (hate?) watching the show or film. [more inside]

FanFare MeMails on the Pony Express

Could we please give users the option to get two kinds of fanfare-related memails?
  1. An alert when someone starts a thread for an episode of a podcast/show that you're following on MyFanfare. (This is perhaps redundant, but I can't be the only one who doesn't think to wander over to MyFanfare that much…)
  2. A digest listing all of the new shows, podcasts (not individual episodes) and movies added to FanFare in the last week. I can't even think of all the media on which I'd be interesting in seeing the community's perspective, and this would be a good way to discover that other folks want to have those conversations as well.

Comics (& other serialized content) on Fanfare

On Fanfare Talk, some mefites have expressed interest in discussing comic books on Fanfare; the necessary metadata could come from comixology or comicbookdb. What do other folks think about this idea? And are there other serialized media (ideally with metadata sources) that might be good to add?
