Wiki addition April 9, 2011 5:57 PM   Subscribe

I've created a new page on the wiki for images.

Over time, many Mefites have created either Metafilter-specific art, photographs, and Photoshopped images, many of very high quality. They are currently scattered throughout the site. I've added a page on the wiki to collect links to the images in one place. If you care to add things to the wiki yourself, please get permission from the rights holder if they aren't CC-licensed. While it's not strictly necessary, I suppose, it's polite. If you can provide a link or nomination, but don't want to edit the wiki, leave it here or MeMail me a link and I'll add it.

The Migs Signal needs to be on there, although it sadly no longer works.

I just added a bunch from a quick trawl of a Google Images search for "metafilter." Fun idea!

I added my very low quality Metafilter Mason emblem.

Splendid idea, old chap!

I added my old "Summon Mutant" and "Summon Languagehat" cards.

BANNED

I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T LINK THE PAGE Thanks Jessamyn!

See also the images section of ShadowyBackAlleys.

Might be worth just scooting that over wholesale if someone feels like doing that.
posted by jessamyn (staff) at 8:23 PM on April 9, 2011


Thought about that but I think it really belongs there with all the rest of the stuff actually hosted on Metafilter.com. I added a link from the images page to ShadowyBackAlleys.

I thought about that as well before creating the page, my rationale ended up being that the 'Shadowy Back Alleys of Metafilter' was actually all stuff that was *hosted on* Metafilter, and thus at least quasi-official. My intent was for other excellent and/or useful art related to the site to have a place to live, as well.

Someone made table tent cards and shoutout graphics as well, sometime back; I'd like to find those and get them in there as well.

Missing one of my favorites.

Thanks for making the page! I added a few, including those mentioned in this thread but not yet included.

Awe, external links on the wiki prompt a captcha now instead of the math problem. Too bad I really liked the math, it was so friendly.

Can anyone figure out why the link to brownpau's image doesn't work?

Extra backslash, I fixed it.

Oh, no.... It was really spelled with a y?

Thanks, Jessamyn. You're a peach :)

Love the MetaFilter as a board game! Well played!

I added my MeFiMu generic cover art.

Does this still exist anywhere?

Blasdelb: "Does this still exist anywhere?"

Apparently not. It may have been one of the things lost in the Hackening.

Pretty sure I have Banned 4 Lyfe on a backup DVD somewhere... would take half a day to find, though, and I'm in crunch. Anybody else got it?

Elephant?

Ryvar: "Pretty sure I have Banned 4 Lyfe on a backup DVD somewhere... would take half a day to find, though, and I'm in crunch. Anybody else got it"

I have my recreation/interpretation of it. I havent seen the original since the Hackening, and I can't remember whether it was '4 Lyfe' or 'for Life'.

Needs the Maoesque Brand New Day, who's got it?
posted by Meatbomb at 5:18 PM on April 10, 2011


It was taken down from Flickr a while ago -- I am sure someone has a local copy but I don't think the creator wants the image used, which is a shame.

He's currently using it as his profile picture.

That's the Print Me page on the wiki, & I've added a link on the page of images.

I have the "Brand New Day" poster saved locally if needed. I don't know if fandango-matt CC'd it or not.

Wow, I'm quite pleased with the response my little idea has gotten! Thanks, guys for helping to make it happen!

I do. Well, I took the picture long after the meme was established and then it kind of took off on its own. There was an ASCII version I remember seeing somewhere too.
posted by mygothlaundry at 7:08 AM on April 11, 2011


And on looking at the first comment on my picture, I think quonsar has the original pissing elephant somewhere as well.
posted by mygothlaundry at 7:09 AM on April 11, 2011


We need that poorly-shot trainwreck picture that routinely got posted to trainwreck threads back in the Age of Img. Also, Quonsar's other signature pic that featured a robot launching a missile from its nether regions.

The portabello thread has - train wreck, pissing elephant and robot shooting rocket from nether region [warning, slow loading thread].
