The generosity of the MetaFilter community has been invaluable in keeping this place up and running for the last several years via community funding. We’re in a position right now where we need to ask for a little more of that help to ensure that the site remains financially secure. [more inside]

Clarification: Is an active Crowd-Funded post ever okay on MeFi?

I have searched the MetaTalk for this and can't seem to find a definitive answer - apologies if one already exists and I missed it. My question - if something is currently being crowd-funded, but has already met/exceeded it's funding goal - is using it as part of a MeFi post grounds for automatic deletion of the post?

Check Yes to confirm that this Kickstarter campaign is over

Because not enough people read the FAQ, posts are made about live online fundraising projects from time to time. I thought it could it be beneficial to have an additional check box appear when a Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other major fundraising sites are linked in a front page post, asking the poster to confirm that the fundraising campaign is over.

Donated, thanked

When we threw the 100k raffle back in November, we raised almost $1,000 for DonorsChoose.org. Since I couldn't find a direct organizational donation, I ended up funding several projects in science, culture, and special needs around the country. The thank you letters came pouring in this week and here are some screenshots: (1, 2, 3, 4). Thanks again all for donating.

MetaFilter Fundraising for Fun

Announcing the new MetaFilter Fundraising for Fun project. dios and rothko/AlexReynolds have agreed to let you guys vote with your dollars, for charity. Throw some cash into the till for the guy you want to take a break for a week, and in the end it all goes to Creative Commons' fundraiser. Think of it as a charity dunk tank: you put down five bucks to toss a few at the guy you love to hate. It'll run for a week, so let's make the fun last.
