Looking back on ten years of FPPs

I've joined many web communities in my life, but none for as long or as wholeheartedly as MetaFilter. I've learned a lot, grown as a person, and taken direction from the thousands of smart, funny, and caring people who write here. And I've been inspired to write, too, putting more time and effort into researching worthwhile posts than I have at any other creative hobby. Sadly, what with work and the news chaos and competing interests it feels like there's less and less time to focus lately, and seeing linkrot erode what I do post is a drag. So when showbiz_liz's lovely celebration of ten years on the blue made me realize my own 10th Mefiversary was approaching, I was moved to do something about it. Nothing on the web lasts forever, but armed with old notes files, the Wayback Machine, and a drive to rediscover my own personal Best of the Web, I plowed through all 149 posts (and a few comments) to recover lost links, check on what had happened since, and organize it all into a single FPP omnibus for your reading pleasure.

MeFi Discord channel

Howdy! So, scrolling through the video game trailers post, I noticed there's quite a few resident gamers here in MeFi. Which made me wonder: Does metafilter have it's own Discord channel? I think it might be a good idea. It would be a good place to banter about politics while queueing for some Overwatch or whatever, and avoiding the casual racism and misoginy that permeates most multiplayer games. For those not in the know, discord is a low latency voice and text app designed for gaming. It's pretty good.

Play our Mario Maker levels!

A few of us (me, naju, Navelgazer, branduno and Elementary Penguin) have been making levels in Super Mario Maker for Wii-U. We've started a blog, mefimariomaker.blogspot.com, to show them off. You don't have to follow or friend us or anything to play 'em, just enter the 16-digit ID codes into Super Mario Maker and play! (This does mean you have to own the game and a Wii-U to play 'em, sadly.) Their difficulty is all over the map. If you have the game and want to post 'em too, just send me a MeMail with your email address and I'll invite you! There is no other requirement, besides being a MeFi member, for posting your levels. It's a Blogger blog, so you'll probably end up needing a Google account.

MetaFilter Clicker Heroes clan, anyone?

So MetaFilter's into clicker games, generally, and the Clicker Heroes 0.20 patch just dropped and adds clans. I couldn't find an existing MetaFilter clan -- and I'm just a few rubies shy of the 50 needed to create one. Anyone else playing CH and feel like teaming up? [more inside]

Internet Spaceships

So, thanks to seanmpuckett and ryanrs, I'm playing EVE Online again. I know that a few others have started (or started back) recently as well. Metafilter used to have a space corporation (by the name of Hurf Durf Moon Eaters) but it seems to have gone by the wayside. Anyone interested in getting the band back together? [more inside]

Baltimore/DC games meetup

After seeing how many board game fans there are in this AskMeFi thread yesterday, I was wondering....would anyone be interested in a Baltimore/DC Area (I'm in-between) MeFi Board Game MeetUp? I'd love to play Settlers of Catan or Puerto Rico against some new players. (My brother's tactics are getting way too predictable after playing so much.)
