MyPony request

Would it be possible to let users set My Mefi and My Ask sites as their default views when signed in? Partly to save clicks and partly (mostly on Ask) because there are some topics I'd rather not read about here. [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: Hot-Weather Recipes

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! I'm a little slow to post this week because MY AIR CONDITIONING DIED so there was all the drama of working over a hot computer in 90 degree heat while waiting for the repair guy. ANYWAY, not that my house is cooling back off, I desperately want to know your favorite hot-weather recipes -- things that taste good in the heat, or things that you don't need to turn on the stove for, or things that just taste like summer. Go!

As of yesterday I have been a member of this site for eighteen years. In Mefi years I am old enough to vote. I joined while in grad school at the university of Louisville. I just wanted to thank everyone for their help and insights over the years. [more inside]

Happy 10 Years! This is me saying thank you for dealing with my idiosyncrasies. My video-game obsessed posts, my overly polite Canadian need to apologize. I want to say thank you to all the moderators, developers, members, lurkers, friends & acquaintances, the entire community. You make living online worthwhile. This place truly is 'Best of the Web'. Here's hoping for 10 more! Cheers.

Metatalktail Hour: Open thread

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm a little tired from too much stuff this weekend, so I declare an open thread. Tell us what's up with you, especially the nice things. Or share what's on your mind that the rest of us might enjoy!

The royal privilege

Regarding the mod note in the royal wedding thread, why are we pushing an unabashed royalist view of this spectacle? Should any negativity of this really be off limits?

MeFites on Are.na

Frimble was kind enough to add Are.na to the 'Also On' profile page options. So far I only see two other MeFites who have added their Are.na profiles (and one is broken). Surely there are more of you. How have you been using the site? [more inside]
