Seems as if the little arrow that takes you to the bottom of a post (I swear I knew what it was called once) isn't working for me on mobile. [more inside]
MeFites, I desperately needed to share this with someone today, and I realize that you're the people I wanted to share it with the most. [more inside]
Registration is open for LL76, the 76th quarterly season of LearnedLeague trivia. Membership is by invitation only, but plenty of Mefites are members and are totally willing to invite you, right here in this thread. Each weekday for 25 days, you answer 6 trivia questions and assign points based on how hard you think your head-to-head opponent will find them. Here are some questions from last season. Referrals are open through February 6; registration closes February 14; LL76 starts on Tuesday, February 20. [more inside]
Checking for new MeMail is just not I regular thing for me... I get one every once in a blue moon. Can we have notifications within the site (like an info banner at the top of the page) or emails sent when we get MeMail or make it more obvious when there's MeMail waiting in your Inbox (blink tag!!) ?
Somewhere on Metafilter, there was a massive compilation of all the "I do X and my friend does Y, which one of us is correct?" posts, like about which way toilet paper rolls go, and sock-sock-shoe-shoe or sock-shoe-sock-shoe, or wiping while standing vs sitting. My search skills are failing me. Where on earth was this?
Halloween Jack posed a question in response to aniola's wonderful post about whales and literature.
“So, can any of you boffins on the blue tell me if there's a longer post than this one?”I thought it'd be nice to have a place to discuss that subject and share some of the longer posts that have managed to hit MetaFilter.
Good Saturday evening, Metafilter! This week, vignettist wants to hear "stories about bad decisions that people have made - not "I ruined my life" decisions, but "well, we were drunk so scaling a 10ft wall seemed like a good idea at the time". Also, pranks." [more inside]
Although many of us are understandably eager to put this year behind us, we cannot do so without observing the time-honored tradition of toasting the comments that made us laugh, cry, or cheer in 2017, but for whatever reason, didn't receive the acclaim that they deserved. [more inside]
needlegrrl's cheerful holiday card exchange was a fantastically effective way of combating the cumulative grar of 2017. Would anyone be interested in doing a Valentine card exchange by mail? [more inside]
It's the call-in show! Jessamyn and a very sleepy moi chatter for a bit about site and life stuff in haphazard fashion, interspersed with a couple long strings of calls from a bunch of lovely and occasionaly slightly cheeky MeFites. It was a lot of fun and a minor pain in the ass to put together, and runs about 80 minutes total. [more inside]
