Can I submit multiple related posts?

Would it be okay to submit multiple posts in a related series? Namely, Eurovision. [more inside]

But what if I want a threeway?

Now let's not everybody talk at once...

Infodump request: what is the largest number of (non-deleted) posts over the shortest period of time at MeFi (inspired by the recent 6 posts in 16 minutes, of which mine was one)? Were there any memorable incidents, accompanied by Mods going OMGWTFBBQ? And have we ever broken out what hours are generally the busiest for Mefi posts (and if so, why do I not remember)? How about similar data for Ask, MeTa, etc. if it's not a bad thing to be doing on a Friday afternoon (it probably is, forget I asked).

Crowded behind the green curtain.

From a profile:
I inherited this account from my mom who died three years ago. I am, apparently, a sub-par contributor.
(My Dad uses it sometimes, too. He's the one with the more intelligent comments)
(Later. At this point, several, well, three or five, people are using this account but none will ever match the original account holder in terms of The Right Stuff)

I don't think there's a guideline for multiple people using one account, but maybe there should be? [Not a callout, hence no link.]

A request for MeFemail 1.1

Any chance MeFemail can be enhanced such that a MeFite can email multiple MeFites at once? [more inside]

Step 1: ask about bread Step 2: wait two weeks; Step 3: Ask about mayo. Step 4: Wait two weeks.

What is the policy on questions like this? Is ask.me the proper venue for asking questions that are serial in nature? Is helping someone through every specific aspect of their life (and at 2 week intervals) something that is condoned?

I have a question. (unrelated) Here's another one.

Asking two questions?

Multiple accounts - menace or meaningless?

"I know someone who owns hundreds upon hundreds of digg accounts, and thousands more on other 'buzz'-worthy sites. I know that he owns about 5 metafilter accounts, all registered after the $5 registration fee, all well used and difficult to call 'plant' on." O RLY? That doesn't seem like a good thing to me, at least. What say the rest of you? Menace or meaningless?

I just can't decide!

Being able to mark a best answer in AskMe is very useful. However, what are you supposed to do when you just can't decide which one is best?

making multiple links more visible

Just a style suggestion for links that include single words with multiple links.

A period ('.'), or a middle dot ('·' ·), or even a spacing cedilla ('¸' ¸) between the links would make it a lot less annoying, especially for those of us with motor control problems. I'm not suggesting this as any sort of rule, just as a nicety.

AskMe Categorization Request

Regarding http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/22795. So clearly the word "cult" went to my head when trying to categorize that question. But really, what would have been the right thing to have filed it under? It seems there should be a multiple categorizing feature at Metafilter. You know for things like Religion and Philosophy/Media and Arts. Basically having question/posts show up in both categories. Another example being this very question which is both a Feature Request as well as Etiquette/Policy. Peace.

If you have to update, please do it in one comment

I really wish ericb would post all of his findings in one message, instead of dribbling them out over several. Apparently he's got amberglow doing it, too. What's the point?

multiple-date-headers thing again

ask.mefi is doing the multiple-date-headers thing again. There's a "November 6" header above each of the first three posts.

What domain names do I keep, part 1 of N

Umm... is this appropriate for AskMefi? I might not have bristled as much if not for the implication that we will be seeing "more than a dozen" of the same threads in the "next several days," and this was merely "part one" of many. Wendell, I love you man, but, uh, [this is bad].

When every word of a FPP is a different link

When every word of a FPP is a different link. Foosnark doesn't like it, and I have some criticism of it myself. It ruins the semantics of a hyperlink -- suddenly, every link is part of a vague topic field that you have to clickthrough in order to begin to even understand what it's about.

I can see some art to it -- sometimes you want things to unfold slowly, only by looking at the same thing from many different views. But most of the time, it may just be annoying and inconvenient. Thoughts?

Multiple appearances of trackbacks

Several blog entries make multiple appearances in the trackbacks of the shuttle thread: does MT's trackback function re-ping the server every time a single post is updated (as so many of us were doing yesterday as the shuttle story developed)?

The quadruple post is a Konqueror bug

I'm really not being an ass over here. It just looks as though I've located an obnoxious bug in Konqueror 3.0.1. Anybody else have the same problem? (more inside)

Too many links in post

How many links does a front page post have before they become irritating?

consensus on multiple-topic posts?

Do we have a general consensus on multiple-topic posts? While there is a relation in that Beast was mentioned in the Casciano essay, I really wonder if one or the other should have have been linked, as the space for discussion ends up too open.

I totally did not click post twice.

Why is it, even if you click only once on "post" and then remove all digits from the keyboard until some error message appears, resist temptation to click again and in fact close MeFi just to avoid posting at all, you are still rewarded, minutes later with a double post?
Double posts imply frenetic clicking but this is just true...
