Closing Your Community Right: Jessamyn interviewed

A podcast where Jessamyn is interviewed by Patrick O'Keefe about the experiences around an online community (mlkshk) closing down and what happens afterwards. There is much on moderating, membership, community issues and service shuttering procedures within, as well as discussion of death/the passing of people, how this impacts on online communities and how moderators and community members deal with it. The page contains many MetaFilter-related links and a link to the transcript.

Hiring a part-time MetaFilter moderator

Happy news: we're hiring. Specifically, a part-time, mostly-weekends US daytime moderator to help add a little wiggle room to the current daytime schedule. Take a look at the Jobs post, and drop us an application if it sounds like a good fit. [more inside]

Please stop deleting my comments

In a thread apparently inspired by a comment I'd made elsewhere a few days ago, I have had a comment deleted. Hardly my first time, but what I don't understand is why mods delete comments presumably because they disagree with the content itself. I responded in-thread a few minutes ago, but Metatalk seems more appropriate. And I'm sure my in-thread comment has already been deleted. [more inside]

post delete (occupy metatalk)

October 26, 2011 1:33 AM Subscribe Tear Gas is fired at Occupy Oakland(twitter hashtag search). NY Times live blog comments. posted by Shit Parade (5 comments total) [!] This post was deleted for the following reason: Metafilter is not a news site, and isn't the best spot for reporting every single new development on the OWS story; if OP or someone wants to work this news into a more in-depth MeFi sort of thing, that might work. -- taz [more inside]

MetaFilter in meatspace

What comprises the total hardware used in delivering to us our beloved MetaFilter? Not just the main server, but also any personal electronics a mod might use to regulate.

Is Jessamyn a volunteer or paid?

"I don't know if she's paid or volunteer, but I damned sure wouldn't want to have jessamyn's job." Well, me neither -- I sometimes disagree with the judgement calls, but wouldn't want to be the one making them, and I don't see why anyone would volunteer for it. So is jessamyn paid?
