Arriving in style like James Bond - update demanded

Maxpower, if you're out there, is there any chance we can get a follow up to my favorite AskMe thread of all time? It's been sitting on my links toolbar for months!

Please, klangklangston, tell us about the music

I was hoping klangklangston would, if he has the time, post one or two lines about each of the numerous albums he cites, either in the main thread or his own blog. I was concerned that a request for a self-link or major derail might be frowned upon in the blue, hence this MeTa.

A followup and thank you for two AskMe posts

A followup and thank you for two AskMe posts: here.

1. I don't have cancer. Yay! Recovery from surgery was a bitch though.
2. I have a daughter named Molly. Yay! Named with good advice given in another AskMe thread (pick something everyone knows how to spell, but few people are using).

I took your advice, then took some pics

Hello from New Zealand! After getting some great advice in my newbie camera suggestion ask me thread, I decided to go with the Nikon D70s and 12-24, 18-70 and 70-200 lenses. Here are some pictures from my trip.

Followup: 5/25 catastrophe averted

BatshitInsaneUpdateFilter. Anyone who followed this thread and has been wondering how we managed to survive the predicted 5/25 catastrophe: You'll be pleased to know that a well-meaning extraterrestrial civilization saved us. You know, because of the succesful application of collective consciousness. Or something. Anyway, whew!

New post with more info requested

I was intrigued by thirteenkiller's post about the possibility of an impressive ancient pyramid in Bosnia. Now I see the story is getting some traction. I went to the original post hoping to add the link as a comment; but, it said, "This thread has been archived and is closed to new comments."

I don't want to FPP this follow-up. I want to call it to thirteenkiller's attention. I think thirteenkiller has already researched this once and may want to follow up with another really swell post (I sure liked the first one).

How do I do that?

Request: a way to mark our questions as resolved.

I'd love to see a "conclusion" feature to many of the askme questions. For instance, even if it's months later, I could go into a question I asked and mark it "concluded" and give a quick summary of what happened when I followed the advice.

Once someone marks something "concluded" it would go to its own "conclusions" RSS feed, which we could subscribe to if we want to know "the rest of the story" on many of the questions asked.

closure on this "mystery nautical apparatus" AskMe thread?

Can we get some closure on this "mystery nautical apparatus" AskMe thread? I'm dying to know what this thing is. Did any of the commenters get an answer from their emails to the Galway port people?

Followup etiquette on closed AskMe posts

Don't get me wrong -- I want to know how stuff on AskMe turns out. I don't think MeTa is the ideal place for that, though. What about allowing askers to post a followup in their own threads, even if they'd been closed & archived, which would put that thread on a new page, like the "fantastic posts" page we have now, which could be called "resolutions" or "how'd it turn out" or some such.

What happened to airnxtz?

Remember airnxtz? He's the dude who came to AskMefi to help plan his eventual EBay scams. The thread is a must read if you haven't already been.

Here's the thing.. it's missing an ending! I want more! But where the hell should I post it? What more can be done? We did so much... to end up signifying nothing. :(

Followup: home theater askme nets positive results

AskMeFi followup - nearly 4 months ago, I asked this question about home theater searching. Ultimately, the guidance from that thread led me to save up for and purchase an appropriate unit. Once I got the DVD player to output the right Dolby variant, we've been basking in good sound. Thanks, Civil_Disobediant and misterbrandt!

Was I really in the wrong here?

Was I really in the wrong here? I posted a question about my car stereo and I got a bunch of great answers. I thanked everyone and posted some additional information. A user posted a lengthy follow-up answer, which I appreciated. But then Thanksgiving, spotty Internet, and just life in general got in my way I didn't have a chance to mess with my car stereo, much less update my AskMe thread. (Frankly, it never occurred to me that people would be on tenterhooks about my Caprice's stereo.)

So then, seven days later, the same user posted this bizarre rant about how I never followed up with the thread. Was I at fault?

Once again, with feeling

A while back I posted a wonderful video for a song called "JCB Song". It went down very well.

I found out today they are going for a UK Christmas number one, and have added a back-story of their touching song to their site.

Im guessing I cant draw attention to this no? I'm dying for a decent xmas #1 after last year's god awful Band Aid thing.

Abanadoned questions on AskMe

Abanadoned questions on AskMe:
I think one of the purposes of AskMe is to provide an archive of solutions. Too often, even though the questions are answered by the community, the asker doesn't bother to report back, or forgets about the question. [more inside]

AskMe following on kidney stones

FollowUpFilter: A few weeks back, I mentioned in AskMe that I was diagnosed with a few rather large kidney stones, and many people in the thread gave me some very useful information, and mentioned that the first course of treatment would be lithotripsy, which it was. From there, the plot thickens. [MI]

Let OP update closed posts in AskMe

This is perhaps indulgent, but it would be potentially useful in ask.mefi if the instigator of the thread could post just once after the thread has been frozen. Some questions resolve after several months, and it would be a possible benefit for those googling for information to see closure, i.e. "this is what ended up working the best, x was right" or what have you. Perhaps this is just imposing a false narrative closure on messy reality.

Lumpy Kitty Followup

I really don't know where to put this...

Mefites asked for an update on my lumpy kitty question. Unfortunately, the lumps in question were caused by Cutaneous Lymphosarcoma, a rare and aggressive cancer. (My vet has only seen it 3 times in her 20 years of practice.) After the lumps appeared, she fell ill, and ultimately had to be euthanized two weeks ago.

I just wanted to pass the news along, and thank you all for the suggestions and help in the AskMe question. RIP Qu'Appelle, 1993-2005.

Mefite nudist arrested on child sex abuse charges

A freaky unfortunate turn of events: As an update on a very old thread on nudism that questioned and debated the gray area between nude adults and nudist children in the setting of a nudist colony, one defender of nudist culture from that discussion was arrested on charges of child sex abuse late last year (still being held awaiting trial afaict). It's freaky to go back and re-read the debate knowing what eventually came to pass.

Thanks to everybody who answered my AskMe question about wheelchair-accessible train travel in Spain. I'm now back from the trip and have some results to report, but the thread is closed, so I thought I'd put them here in case it's of use to future travelers.
