Out of curiosity, has any thought been given to another August Best Post
contest? [more inside]
Cheers to Kattullus on his 500th
post last Friday!
Assuming any MetaFilter users are interested in writing posts or comments during voting and counting, how will this bloggie handle what will be its 4th US presidential election? [more inside]
I think other versions of this post
linking to a video of Mormon temple ceremonies ought to stand if they're offered. [more inside]
What are the best single-link posts in MeFi history? [more inside]
Has the average daily count of front page posts increased over the last five years? When I joined back in 2006, I seem to remember the average being something like 23-25 posts a day. Now it seems to be about 33-36 posts a day. Do the numbers back me up? Or am I imagining things?
Per this comment
, what sites/content/links are most frequently deleted on the Blue?
Where do you people find the things you post to the "blue", and how do you consistently find them before the rest of us? Specifically to those of you who make art or photography posts here on Metafilter, where do you first learn of the things you link here? Reddit? Stumbleupon? Digg? Certain blogs? Where is the bleeding edge of the internet? [more inside]
Is this post about shark species extinction
, and the member
who created it (a "Shark conservation biologist"), crossing the line into spamming/schilling? The linked article is weak and has an obvious agenda, the user and the writers of the blog linked have many connections
and the username chosen by the poster is based on the title of his upcoming book.
I don't think any harm was intended but it sounds like the guy is using the front page to sell himself, his cause and his book. If so, is that ok?
Why do we not want most popular comments from all time available, the way it is for posts? [more inside]
So, about this best post of the day thing.. are you announcing it on MeTa every day?
I think it would be kind of cool if you also highlighted it on Metafilter, ala AskMe favorited comments. That way, scrolling back a day or two on the front page I'll be able to tell the winning posts at a glance.
I'm confused. What is more important to mefites, actually responding to the content of FPPs, or rating their quality? I see a general (hence, no links in this question) preponderance to the former. It seems that many responses to posts are actually rating the quality of it and/or the poster, rather than the content of the FPP. I've read a lot of the sites about Metafilter and maybe I'm missing a concept or something.
I am truly not trying to be a smartass, I'm genuinely interested in understanding this. Thanks.
What if instead of being able to post a link every 24 hours, we simply post ever metafilter day? That would take away the need to count down the hours, make posting easier, and still have the same limiting effect.
Two FPP's on the front page need a warning for loud music and auto-download. Stupidsexyflanders' Expressionless Girl
has incredibly loud and irritating embedded music and indices Widget of mass destruction
, the first link downloads a widget to your computer without warning.
Both should have had a warning about the links.
Big FPP's can be annoying.
Anyone else agree?
Is there any chance of getting a 'maximum length of a front-page post' limit implemented? Or at least have a suggestion to the poster that their post is a little long?
I think starting a new front-page thread just to call another user out
is going too far, especially when said user explicitly asks
to take it to e-mail.
