Pony Request: Math is hard!

Last week I was going to make an FPP and got the "too soon!" message. I see this often because I tend to post in bursts, so I look up the last posting time and do some mental math. Since the form knows I've already posted in the last 24 hours, would it be possible to just have it tell me at what time I can make the next post? On attempted posting preview: I was notified that I had posted a MeTa within the last seven days so this had to wait, too. Maybe this pony could ride across the whole site.

From WBEZ Chicago, I'm Ira Glass. Today on our show, MetaFilter.

In the This American Life blog post which is a list of the staff's favorite lists of other sites' favorite This American Life episodes, Ira links to a 2005 AskMeFi thread in which MetaFilter members named their favorites. Notably, there was remarkable consensus among lists of that vintage and the lists that were published this month to observe the show's 500th episode. I'm fairly surprised there hasn't been a more recent thread along those lines.

Do comments here on Metafilter get "disappeared"?

I have a vague unsubstantiated feeling that some comments I've written got tossed into the memory hole. Am I being paranoid, or is this normal with some justification I'm not aware of? [more inside]

What the heck is up with deleting posts?

It seems that any interesting posts are getting deleted lately. Just now, The story about the bolt action rifle handed to the kid as a play toy - deleted. The story about the movies to help educate people before they make end of life decisions, deleted. And a few others that upset me at the time, before I noticed the trend... can't recall specifics. Is someone trying to push metafilter in a new direction, or what?

Deleting comments from MeTa

Hey, what's the deal with a joke comment being deleted from this recent MetaTalk thread? It was mild joke and I thought the bar for deleting comments from Metatal was much higher. I would ask in the thread, but when someone else did that, their comment was deleted, so here we are.

Looking for a MeTa

Does anyone remember a MeTa about AskMe questions that really, really did not go the way the asker expected? I can't seem to find the post I'm thinking of. It would have been fairly recent, probably posted in the last year or so.

Everyone needs to respect what MeTa is for and remember to use it.

If something needs to go to Metatalk, it seems to me it doesn't need mods discussing it in thread while paying lip-service to the Blue/Grey distinction. If people need to defend their decisions, they can surely just direct the conversation here, not do what looks a bit like a drive-by on a Blue thread.

For the millionth time, you can't have your pony!

The good news: MetaTalk has over 1,000,000 comments as of today. The bad news: the millionth comment was apparently deleted.

Thoughts on comment thread meta-comments.

Perhaps I don't have enough experience on the site to gauge this, but does anyone else find one liner meta comments about threads really annoying and useless? Perhaps this is something that should be mentioned in the guidelines? From the negative "This will not go well." to the typical sarcastic "This is thread is going nowhere..." to the positive "I'm surprised this went well!", they seem out of place and more about the person writing it than the topic at hand. When I remember, I'm going to start marking all of these as noise.

Please help me collect some meta MeTa Data data. Ta! –Me.

Hi Everybody! I'm trying to come up with a "MeFi glossary of terms / phrases / behaviors" to include in my PhD dissertation about linguistics and MetaFilter. If you could help me with this, that would be fantastic. I'm looking to create a list of the types of things that say to you (or to others) "Oh, that's so MetaFilter!" or "That sounds like something a MeFite would say." This could be anything from the use of a single character to a phrase or meme, to a way of doing things here. If you can think of something to add, please share it in the comments. Thanks!

Meta Filter

I came across this interesting bit of information while doing some research on the London based conceptual artist Stephen Willats. According to his wiki, "His 1973 work Meta Filter consisted of pairs of participants seated at a computer, attempting to reach an agreement about the meanings of various images and statements." You can read more about Meta Filter here, and more about Willats at his website here.

Metafilter post about Ye Olde Metafilterre. Help?

Looking for a Metafilter post that was about a gentlemanly journal(?) in the 1800's(?) that was kind of like Metafilter. It was recently digitized, I believe. And then also there was a part in it that was also like AskMetafilter. Anyone remember this better than I do?
