Christ, he's getting senile. Can't even keep his sock puppets straight.

I'm reworking the saved favorites page. It's likely a small bug with the favorites adding script.

What's with the Gold Star GIF appended to madamjujujive's ID (screen capture here)?

Q: What does a duclod appreciate about posts favorited by others?

A: Being able to deny having a favorite!

there is no gold star!

ericb: she won a contest and the star only shows up in MetaTalk.

There may or may not be a gold star.

ericb: here's the link to the MetaTalk thread with the winners. Best post of December contest I think.

I would blow all of you for a gold star.

Er, blow all of you up. Heh. Embarrassing.

I think the correct response here is "Okay. Awkward."

I would like to say the following things, having had more than one drink tonight:

1. I think it's funny that the site owner chimed in with a joke response to a serious question. This is part of why I love metafilter. Also I love metafilter because jessamyn chimed in with the serious answer. I could almost a hear a sigh before her comment.

2. I am addicted to checking my favorites page. I think it's made me a better community member. Seriously, I want EVERY single damn thing I say to resonate as solid gold awesome with the entire userbase. This is an achievable goal, I swear it. I will be King of the Favorites!

If I ask really nicely, can I also have a gold star? I've been very good.

No, but if you die, I'll give you a dot.

quonsar is Mo Nickels, huh? Well, didn't see that coming. Kwantsar, maybe.
posted by klangklangston at 6:53 AM on April 14, 2007


yeah, Kwantsar saw that coming a mile away.

No, I am Mo Nickles.

I just got my cat duclod. Quonsar has been so nice the past year or so, I suspected that he had been duclod as well.

1. Post a bunch of hypothetical threads to AskMetafilter--or, post a bunch of very simple but useful threads such as "How do I learn French/Spanish/German as easily as possible?" or "What's the best software to use for my tax returns?" (post this in March) or post nine thousand different music videos.

2. Post a thread in Metafilter that's actually link-dump of thousands upon thousands of music files or videos or any other piece of multimedia people would be interested in (the more dubious the legality, the better).

If you do either of these things you'll eclipse six months worth of carefully executed comments.

Oh, and...

3. Spend ten minutes each morning looking at yourself in the mirror, talking to yourself about how great you are (a la Stuart Smalley). In a few months I promsie you won't look to us for validation. That small part of you that dies a little more every time a comment remains unfavorited (even the ones you thought were brilliant) will start to heal, and will be made stronger for the trials and tribulations you put it through.
