Horse Glue Factory: Frist Post versus Meaty Post

I hate to get sidetracked but I find it interesting that there will always be two sides when it comes to this issue of how one should post on this site. Link heavy or light? Get the info out there quickly so discussion can occur, or wait and find as many links as possible and provide more for the posting. We should always be striving for the latter. [more inside]

Is it self posting if my wife is involved.

I want to put up an FPP about a not-for-profit that's done something cool, and important, and I want it to get some publicity, because I believe in their mission. But my wife works for them, on a volunteer basis, in a pretty important position.... [more inside]

Waiving front page posting limit?

Would it be possible to have the 24-hour posting limit waived if your last post was a double and deleted?

How long do I have to comment in order to post?

How many roads must a man walk down before they call him a man? I tried to post a link to the front page but was told that I haven't commented enough to earn that right yet -- but nowhere can I find stated how many comments I have to make first. I did a MeTa search but either I was unable to refine my search terms properly or the question has never been posed. Does anyone know, or do I have to take this upstairs? It's a damn fine link, too.

Is there a general rule about posting links from popular sites like Plastic, Digg, etc.?

After reading this article, which was linked at Plastic, I was tempted to post it here, at MeFi, but then I decided not to. Isn't Plastic a popular site among MeFi readers, and wouldn't posting this link be redundant? Is there a general rule about posting from popular sites, or does it always come down to a hunch?

Do we need a posting limit?

Two links to Ananova (1,2) in less than 4 minutes?

Italics Policy

What about this? Can we frown upon front page posts that consist only of italics? Ouchie.
