For the past nine weeks, I've been eagerly looking forward to reading and discussing WandaVision episodes with y'all and it's been the most fun I've had on the site in while. Tons of insight, jokes, links, backstory and viewpoints in lowkey, yet engaging way. Thank you so much!
Not a lot of site news this update, though we’ve been laying groundwork for upcoming stuff and have checked off a few lingering items from the last while. [more inside]
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented on this Ask post, and tell my brief success story. [more inside]

Prompted by a fun poster thread on MLTSHP, I want to know about a thing that is on your wall. Could be a poster, a painting, a picture, a wall-hanging, a shadow, a window, a post-it, something you like to look at that you think others might like to see. Feel free to describe it or link us to a picture of it.
I recently joined clubhouse for information on startups, fundraising, and to provide knowledge about our industry domain. I looked for a Metafilter club on clubhouse but didn't come across one. [more inside]
This morning I searched Google for a recent AskMeFi post I previously read and Google wasn't able to find it and I'm wondering what gives. [more inside]

MeFi user profiles show a user's most used tags for the Blue and the Green. Could we find a way to add, and would other users be interested in adding, FanFare and maybe MeTa tags to that, too?
I am the only Mefite who has an entry for chess.com among their social-media links on their profile. One just cannot play a rewarding game of chess with fewer than two people. I was hoping that other chess.com member Mefites might update their profiles with their chess.com names, and identify themselves in this thread. [more inside]

I love seeing Metatalktailhour on Saturdays - I hope I'm not stepping on toes here by posting this. Where do you feel comfortable going these and where don't you? What is it like?Is everyone wearing masks? Social distancing? [more inside]
I've been reading Sarah Vowell's Take the Cannoli and enjoyed reading about her visit to Disneyland, particularly how she would remake Disneyland if she could build a theme park. And that made me think about my own personal theme park and what I might like to see and what other kinds of theme parks others would create. Sky's the limit, what would you like to create a theme park for? Would there be rides? Food? Attractions? Educational opportunities? Take us on a trip somewhere.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks since the last update, with a more comprehensive State of the Site update and some site dev progress as frimble’s had some more time available recently. [more inside]
As we all limit human contact to help contain the pandemic, nearly all of us have hobbies and abilities lying fallow or getting very limited use. But, those in this position probably have great past work which will be new to people here and will generate the same sort of delight and interest as much of what's on MeFi. So - what have people done that's great that others can see online? Link and take a bow. [more inside]
Heya, folks, here's an update on the site over the last year and what we're looking at in 2021. [more inside]
Lately there's been a certain kind of comment on posts about celebrities that turn out to be terrible people. That comment is "oh, I always knew he was terrible! And everyone I know who liked him has also turned out to be a terrible person!" I am personally finding these comments frustrating for a whole host of reasons. [more inside]
Just want to make sure that folks in Texas are staying safe as these storms start coming down. Be careful out there!
