Tomorrow is Friday. I challenge you to make a post to MetaFilter. Something wonderous and strange. Sensless and ridiclous. Beautiful and fragile. Pointless and arbitrary.
Don't self-censor. Don't pre-censor fearing what the haters will say. It's your site as much as it is theirs. This isn't about improving post quailty, and I don't have a gift certificate for you. This is about having fun and not ceeding MF to the snarkers, bickers and critics.
Do it. Do it! DOOOO EEEEEEET!!!!!!

What makes a good thread post to MetaFilter?
A good post to MetaFilter is something that meets the following criteria: most people haven't seen it before, there is something interesting about the content on the page, and it might warrant discussion from others.
As a first-time poster or new member of MetaFilter, take a look at the older posts to get a feel for what constitutes a good link. Look at the links that carry 10 or 20 comments to see what everyone is talking about. Is the link you're about to post provocative enough to show to everyone? If so post away.
A good thread values uniqueness over novelty.
