Do you have an instrument at home? Or a voice? And a camera or a microphone? Willing to upload to Youtube or Facebook or Vimeo or Soundcloud or your provider of choice and link to it here? Better to be at home sharing music than to be at home not sharing music!
I'm finding art is a really useful thing for putting my brain somewhere other than *waves hands around floridly* for a while. And I know a lot of folks on MetaFilter make art, or have made art, or would like to make art. So, hey: let's make some art! Good art, bad art, first-timer art. Let's make stuff, and talk about stuff you'd like to make, and share what you're making, and share resources and guides and inspiration and so on. [more inside]
The Covid Card Swap (previously discussed here)is a go! If you want to send cards/postcards/notes of encouragement and connection to other Mefites, follow the simple instructions inside. [more inside]
hi all, ask usually gets a question about comfort or easy reads every month or so. Has anyone done any compilations? ... and if not, who has an opinion on the best way for me to make one? [more inside]
Hi there, I don't know if anyone will be interested but if you are, I have a paid up Minecraft server with 50 open slots. It would be an easy way to interact with other Mefites, if you already own the game, and hopefully a nice distraction. [more inside]
While we're on the subject of ponies... What if recent activity showed, say, the last ten comments in the last 8 or 24 hours? [more inside]
I ran into these UI/UX issues in the politics megathreads, and am frustrated by them again in the coronavirus threads. Can any of these be improved? [more inside]
I can't improve on Gotanda's intro for the last check in thread so here it is again updated: A third catch-all thread for mefites living in areas directly affected by novel coronavirus (aka SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19) picking up from the last one. Again, please no idle speculation, catastrophizing, or chat. Let's stick to actual news, updates, personal experiences, and more mutual support from and to people dealing with this virus in their daily lives. How you all doing?
I know there's a wiki of MeFi authors, and I know we already have MeFi Music... but I'm guessing that a lot of people here have podcasts or YouTube / Vimeo channels or books or albums or animation or artwork or other creative outlets. Any chance we can create a master directory (like the MeFi Mall) of these links for people who... might suddenly have a lot of unfilled time on their hands?
