Siri will read the Blue or Green for you

I made this Siri Shortcut that gets the last 15 posts on the Blue or Green and reads them out loud to you. [more inside]

IRL pony request: participant notification

The creator of an IRL event has the option to be notified by email when a comment is added to the post. How much trouble would it be to add notifications to those who are attending (including Maybes)? Is this something others would find useful?

FeelGoodFilter

I’m here to propose that we pursue a season of fun and non-controversial posts on MetaFilter. Let’s fill up the Blue with the interesting, the comedic, the curious, the lengthy disclosure… the topics which are posted to share something groovy and/or interesting and not posted to stir up the grar.

Metatalktail Hour: Warm Weather Food

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, it's finally warming up in Chicago, so I want to know what you like to cook and eat when it's warm outside! (Because by a month into summer I am bored of all my warm-weather recipes so clearly I need more of them!) [more inside]

Hyuck To The Future

Time to kick open another Hyucking Hyuck thread, for riffing and jokes and misc. non-hollerin' overflow from politics discussion on the blue. [more inside]

MetaParanormal 👻🛸👽

Nearing the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. Let's talk about supernatural phenomenon, things that cannot be easily explained, (ghosts, UFOs, aliens, Bigfoot, chupacabras, telepathy, etc.). Have you ever experienced something like this? If so, please share with the rest of the community. Or maybe you firmly disbelieve in things like this and that's totally cool too. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. The truth is out there.

Communicating Wordless Appreciation

the “.” is what we use in posts that memorialize people who have passed on as a way to signal “I’m at a loss for words” and it also signals “I’m here”. Is there also a use for a signal we can use in everyday posts that signals “I don’t have anything to add as a comment but I totally appreciate this”? [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: Childhood Objects

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, kristi wants to know "What objects do you still have from your childhood - especially things that don't have any particular sentimental value? I happened to notice I have a pair of scissors that I'm pretty sure were bought for me to use in grade school. I have no special attachment to them; they just seem to have stayed with me through the years." [more inside]

MeFi 20 Planning Thread

OK! I am having people over to my house in Massachusetts on Saturday, July 13 where we will raise a toast to mathowie and, quite probably, eat a lot of cheese and maybe play some board games. I'll put up an IRL post soonish but this MeTa thread is to nudge people to start thinking about their own "What am I going to do for MeFi's 20th birthday?" planning ideas. First post was July 14, 1999.
