Who made the Metafilter pins? July 11, 2007 8:52 PM   Subscribe

A coupla years ago, a very nice Mefi user, whose user name began with A, (I think) made Metafilter pins and he sent me some. I can't for the life of me remember his name. Does anyone remember who made the neat-o Metafilter pins?

Do you have a pic of the pin you could share?

Um, no, I have them packed away right now. They were about an inch in diameter and one said Me in blue and Fi in yellow. The other one was divided into quarters alternating blue, white, yellow and white.

Were they the ones referred to here by azul?

Also mentioned (in a manner similar to this) here, by anastasiav.

I was cleaning out a closet last week and discovered I still have a half-dozen extra of them, as well as some cryptic buttons, same size, just Mefi blue and gold colors with no message. Maybe I should set up some kind of giveaway for those rare artifacts, a random lottery or a 'kiss Wendell's ass' contest, or maybe I should just put them on eBay and retire...

I'll give you a bottlecap for 2.

Depends on the bottle.

Who let wendell have sharp things?

I think you should give them to the victims of your e-mail as penance.

Years and years of goodwill, shot down by one well-intentioned but thoughtless act.

Hey! What about the framily, wendell?

Would it be too much to ask for a photo of the pins in question?

Oh, it's only a fleshwound.

How about pogs? Are there any Metafilter pogs out there?

Those pins sound neat. There really should be a swag store with this sort of stuff. And with pint glasses that say

Working on a front page post.
