"Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

Mefite Paul-Olivier Dehaye’s three-week Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) at Coursera, "Teaching Goes Massive: New Skills Required" 'reportedly launched on June 23 without controversy. The course targeted people in higher education who felt “threatened,” “lost” or “unprepared technology-wise,” -- a MOOC for MOOC skeptics, in other words.' And then the mindfuck began. Inside Higher Ed notes that in trying to figure out what is going on, someone uncovered a handful of comments he made on MeFi related to the project.

Member websites, members only?

My little pony request. Can we have the option for our websites to be available to members only? It makes sense, in that we have the visibility option for members/everyone for Twitter/FB/other social media, can we just add website as a field for that as well? [more inside]

a friend of a friend wanted me to ask y'all.....

This post brought up a question for me. It isn't unusual for us to see AskMeFi questions posted by a member for a friend/spouse/workmate/whatever. How do we feel about that? Are we taking bread out of Matt's mouth when we use our account for someone who isn't willing to pony up the $5? And, does it feel different to help a non-member as opposed to one of our co-member-mefits? Not that I personally see it (as it happens now) as a huge issue, I was just curious as to the "how to manage an online community" philosophy bit of the question.

I'd just like to take a moment to misuse MetaTalk and draw your attention to this lame gawker list type post revealing the origin of MetaFilters own Astro Zombie.

Why is the term "USian" used on MeFi in place of "American" so often?

Is there a way to search members by location?

I swear I remember a way to find users from a specific locale- but I can't seem to conjure up a search-string that will do what I want, which is to find users in and around Munich and Berlin, Germany.

The rasion d'etre of my search is that I've found some 1500 photographs I took there 30 years ago, and I'd like some assistance in determining locations/stories.

Member count error on the front page.

Am I the only one who sees "Connection Timeout" in the place where the number of members should be listed on the front page of MeFi?

Logboy injured in Iraq

One of our longtime mefi members - Logboy - was recently redeployed to Iraq. When I noted in one of his comments that he was on leave, I bookmarked his weblog and was shocked and saddened to read that he was injured by an IED. Damn.

How many people sign up per day?

My friend and I were discussing MeFi and came to a point of contention when estimating the number of new users MeFi receives per day. My guess was 5 to 10, his was 25 or more. Perhaps this argument can be laid to rest here. How many new users does MeFi average per day?

Searching Profile Pages

Is there a way to search user profile pages for certain words? I was trying to add a 'MetaGame' keyword to my page for use by geekily Mefites to match up in online games (MMORPGs, Live!, Nintendo Wifi, etc) for some constructive combat from the safety of our Mom's basement.

Am I missing something obvious, or is the a pony that could be coaxed to life?

MetaFilter Members In Iraq

Are there any members who are serving or have served in Iraq? Any members who live, or have constant contact with someone who lives, in Iraq? If you're willing, I have language-related questions, both about American military usage and colloquial modern Iraqi Arabic. Email me at the address on the web site linked in my profile.

Request: a way to filter out particular users.

Hi, would a "filter user comments" option be a lot to ask? There are a few users who just never really say anything useful or contributory, and I think if I could just filter them out it would be nice.

unquestionably the greatest 1000 member group

"Unrelated, but let's just point out once again that the 14K group is unquestionably the greatest 1000 member group in the history of Metafilter."

I would like to hear the opinions of 14k'ers on this subject.
Various Mefi-Untermenschen are free to offer us , the 'greatest generation' , their tributes.

Where do I ask a question about MetaFilter and how it's used?

Do I ask this here (or has it been asked before) ??
I want to ask people just how they organize their MeFi/MeTa/AskMe screens/feeds/time - I'm not actually asking yet as I want to think about framing the question a bit more (so it might become wider surfing focussed or not), but should it go here or in AskMe?
(but people might answer anyway so it could be a moot point I guess)

Connection timeout members

A little bug on the front page. Top right reads "Connection Timeout members | You are logged in as ..." or merely "Connection Timeout members" if I'm not logged in.

The effects of noobs on MetaFilter.

Not in defense of noobs. Because of noobs (myself included), the sky is falling and trends clearly show that metafilter is getting rapidly out of control!! Seriously though, this analysis shows that the "average age" of a metafilter poster has dropped by almost 200 days, I am in whichever camp wants to extend the incubation period for noobs like us...

Who else is on LJ?

Okay, so I know there was a tangentally related thread posted here a while ago, but that was 2 years ago and it bears a new update. I am a member of both MeFi and the infamous LJ community. Most people would agree, myself among them, that the majority of lj is crap. Most of MeFi, however debatable, is not crap. So I was hoping to add a bunch of you insightful MeFi folk to the old friends list and vice versa. Post inside if you have an active lj account and would like to share and read some lj posts that don't suck.

New members increase numbers (from July 2003)

Who's your MeFi crush?

Okay, there's been some negativity round these parts lately, so let's try this: Is there any MeFiosi upon whom you've developed a sort of (intellectual?) crush? (Potentially lame query, I know, but I figure it'll get some positive feedback going. We've spilled a lot of bytes talking about the people, or personae, we don't like, ad nauseam, so I figure the opposite is worth a shot. So shoot! Free love!)

Member count discrepancies

It appears as though the member count on the front page of MeFi does not accurately reflect the number of members. The most recent member seems to be 14212, while the member count is only 14041. While that is certainly a pretty palindrome, why the discrepancy?

moonlighting mefites

Everywhere I look on the Internet I find my fellow Metafilterians moonlighting somewhere. Just today I came across a very interesting web site called Cafoon/Erotica Rules, where the very latest contributions come from poster heroes such as owillis and feelinglistless.

Forget SportsFilter and Plastic.com(where the great holgate is in finest form). Come clean now! What are the Metafilterians' secret haunts? And are there any steadfast, exclusivist, MetaFilter-only loyalists left? [I, a minor traitor, confess to lurking very discretely on filepile, Kuro5hin, fark and a certain red cricket where Crazy Uncle Joepontificates - but that is all...]

Active MeFi Members

How many of the 13179 metafilter members actively participate (post and read) on a regular basis? Is that number the result of a SELECT MAX(user_identity) type SQL statement or is it calculated somehow based on readership and usage?

How many of these accounts are test accounts? How many are inactive? How many were created and then never used or rarely used to post over the previous 2 or 3 years? How many are not Neale Talbot?

I'd love to see some histograms.
