So, today I posted about the upcoming new Santana album. It's amazing. It comes out next week. It is available for preorder on Amazon and I have preordered it. Also was a Carly Rae Jepsen link about a single off her new album. It was amazing. I preordered it. Should we, when we compose posts like these, include a link to an Amazon order page so MeFites who want to also purchase these things can give MetaFilter a bit of a kickback? Or is that too commercial?
We’re adding a heads-up note to the posting process on the front page when previewing a long-above-the-fold post, to help provide folks with preemptive feedback about post length. It’s not enforced—your post won’t be truncated by the posting process or anything like that—but we’re hoping it’ll help folks think about how they’re framing stuff in terms of how much vertical space it might occupy.

My father is attempting to start a New Orleans relief effort among towboat pilots (he is one himself). He's posted a "call to action" on his site, and I'd like to get the word out. I haven't posted it on the front page because it seems dangerously close to a self-link (and is just one editorial, really). Any suggestions?
Deleted Comment of the Day: "I nearly choked on my dinner reading through this hilarious thread - I love Metafilter, but its smartypants members are gonna be the death of me some day."
Is Metafilter the place to post PSAs now?
