Ideabasket/What Needs Love in Profile "Social Links"

This is a thread for the "social links" sections of people's profiles. Let's make this a single thread for the mods, to: (a) report changed social link URL formats, (b) "social link" services that have gone altogether and (c) throw in any ideas of popular or up-and-coming services that you'd like to see there and that have a publicly accessible URL format for people's profiles.

Featuring MeFi's own MetaFilter

The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress has announced the creation of the library's Web Cultures Web Archive Collection. Archived sites of note run the gamut from Urban Dictionary to ¡Cuánto cabrón! to creepypasta to MeFi's own Metafilter. [h/t]

Adding mltshp and Ravelry support to profile page Social Apps

We're celebrating the launch of mltshp by adding it to the Social Apps options on profile pages (and deprecating mlkshk). While we're at it, we're also adding Ravelry support finally. Details inside! [more inside]

Let's follow each other on Pocket

Surely, there are many MeFites on Pocket. Their Friends function is the closest thing I've found to the social features on the dearly departed Google Reader Let's exchange usernames and become friends. [more inside]

So... anyone interested in starting a Metafilter D&D campaign?

I hear tell that Roll20 makes it pretty easy to run campaigns online. I have basically no experience with D & D, but I keep running into people and podcasts that make it seem pretty fun, especially if you have a good sense of humor. Any nerds want to come help me figure it out? :D [more inside]

If You Use IFTTT Then Consider Sharing Recipes

As of yesterday there is an Also On option for IFTTT. If you use the service, please consider adding IFTTT to your profile page. If you are also creating MetaFilter-related "recipes" then please consider sharing them on the wiki. Thanks for adding this useful service to the list, pb!

Intersectionality or not?

Lately, the site consensus on social justice threads has seemed to be that if one group is discussing its experiences of mistreatment by another group, it is inappropriate for that second group to make the thread about them by talking about their own experiences of mistreatment, disagreement, etc. This thread seemed to take things back the opposite way. Should we be more consistent about this? [more inside]

Metafilter LinkedIn Group

Now that our leader has successfully added all of us to his friends list while pretending it was an accident (jk), I think it might make sense for there to be an expanded, private Metafilter LinkedIn group (not the public, totally barren one that exists now). Here's why: [more inside]

I put on my wizard's hat and robe

I have seen a fair few folks mentioning how much they'd enjoy playing Pen and Paper RPGs alongside their fellow MeFites in various threads over the past few months. If anyone is interested please drop in here and we can try to organise some play. [more inside]

Matt Haughey wants to connect with you on LinkedIn.

Who else is now connected to Matt? I got one and I told a MF friend of mine, who also got one! Are you networking for new mods, or did you get zinged by Linked In?

It's kind of like D&D, except it makes you healthier, and might get a tan.

Are there any other MeFites on Fitocracy? Join the Metafilter group, and come get fit and level-up with us! We can be virtual running buddies. [more inside]

Shake It, Baby!

Would it be possible to add Mlkshk to the list of social apps we can add to our profiles? No rush, obvs. Thank you in advance for looking at this shaken, but not stirred pony!

ya digg?

I've noticed a particularly pronounced uptick in the number of favorites comments are getting. Has Metafilter become funnier, or more salient? Or, you know.

Metasocial

Didn't there used to be a webpage that showed you all the Mefites' social-networking-website accounts that we have listed in their profiles? Or something? [more inside]

Can we add muxtape as a social service for the profiles? I bet a lot of mefites muxtapes up.

Social networking in meatspace.

I know the new social networking trends around here are stirring controversy, but I think there's room at metafilter for one more! I'd like to see a place to announce a less-than-meet-up and ask who's-going-to-be-at-local-event? [more inside]

MetaFilter as social experiment hoax by mathowie

Does anybody know where that fake page that mathowie put up a few years ago when MeFi was down is hiding? This is the one where he claims that Metafilter was a social experiment in AI and that the vast majority of the writers here were simply software constructs. This was right after he got on the cover of some magazine, and said it was just some actor..... Thanks.

How close are we on Metafilter?

Amidst all the talk about grudges and nemesii; stalking and vendettas; personal beefs and antipathies, the fact remains that, when you've been on MetaFilter for a while, the chances are that you've also made a few friends - or, at least, established some pleasant, lasting empathetic online relationships. Are they - or can they be - considered friendships? Or are they better considered fleeting and virtual, ready to evaporate at the first hastily answered (or unanswered) e-mail, not worth the paper they weren't written on in the first place?
