Why no airplane terrorist post?

I'm curious about why nobody posted anything to the front page about the foiled terrorism attempt on the 25th. [more inside]

Commentary in FPPs?

A lot of posts get deleted because they have too much "commentary" but in the metafilter about section it describes an ideal post as a link accompanied by commentary, perhaps this should be changed? [more inside]

I was preparing a post like this!

Is there any interest in creating a space on the wiki to collaborate on future posts and prevent sniping? [more inside]

Links for the Memories

The welcome-back message on the front page reads 'x links and y comments posted since your last visit' (except, y'know, with numbers). But most posts contain more than one link. Would it be better to have it read 'x posts and y comments'? There's probably a downside I'm not seeing.

Where do you discover the links you post to the blue?

Where do you people find the things you post to the "blue", and how do you consistently find them before the rest of us? Specifically to those of you who make art or photography posts here on Metafilter, where do you first learn of the things you link here? Reddit? Stumbleupon? Digg? Certain blogs? Where is the bleeding edge of the internet? [more inside]

Search Through User's Activity?

Pinning/sidebarring mod posts?

Request: could important posts about the site be pinned to the top of MeTa for a little while? Or sidebarred? Or something? They tend to get lost in the shuffle, and then you have those "Hey, whatever happened to [whatever]?" posts that get closed. [more inside]

All hail homunculus!

homunculus has made 1000 high quality posts to the Blue. He has just become the first MeFite besides mathowie to cross into quadruple digits. Quantity aside, his posts are quality.

Can't Find the Right Metafilter Search-Fu For This Question

I am wondering if people could assist me in locating Ask Metafilter questions along the lines of this and this. I know it's a concept frequently asked about, but evidently the concept's too amorphous for tags to be of help, Related Questions just circularly refer to each other, and I can't find the right Google-fu for this one.

Deleted Posts Accessible to the User?

I recently had a MeFi post deleted. I know it will still show up in my Metafilter Recent Activity for a while, but once it goes from there, is there any way to track it and any deleted posts from my past? [more inside]

Just when you thought it was safe to post again

Is this post about shark species extinction, and the member who created it (a "Shark conservation biologist"), crossing the line into spamming/schilling? The linked article is weak and has an obvious agenda, the user and the writers of the blog linked have many connections and the username chosen by the poster is based on the title of his upcoming book. I don't think any harm was intended but it sounds like the guy is using the front page to sell himself, his cause and his book. If so, is that ok?

navigating and posting

Very new to this site and not good at navigating in general. Would like to know how I go about posting general questions. For instance if I have a question about cars...do I do a search for cars and then post a question in that particular area? Pardon my clumsiness...this site was recommended highly and I've been told, I can't do or say anything stupid or I will be kicked out, so I want to ask before i attempt anything.

MetaMetaTalk

I just noticed that the line about recent activity in metatalk says "X new links and Y new comments have been posted since your last visit"

Shouldn't it say something like 'posts' instead of 'links?'

I'm kind of baffled as to why it doesn't already

Pony: How about adding any thread that you post to your Recent Activity, rather than requiring you to comment in it?

OLPC unboxing photos and reviews in The Blue okay?

'Very Short Introductions' very short life

I'm kinda bumed this post on the 'Very Short Introductions' series was deleted, but understand why. Any suggestions how to get the book series in the blue, besides pushing illegal copies? The FPP had 4 favorites in its brief life and had some useful discussion starting about the best books in the series.

MeFi book deals?!

Jessica Hagy, author of Indexed, the Venn Diagrams-on-cards blog, on how she went from unknown blog to bookdeal in just a few months: "About a week after I posted the first batch last August, somebody linked the blog to Metafilter. Whoever you are, thank you! That's how my agent (it's still strange to me that I have an honest-to-god agent) found me, and from there, it just sort of took off." Crazy.

Why can't one favorite deleted threads?

Why can't one favorite deleted threads? There are a few methods of viewing deleted threads, and one can work around the issue by favoriting a comment in a deleted thread; however I think it would be nifty if we could favorite a deleted thread itself.
