I want to thank taz for continuing to maintain the Best Of Metafilter posts and sidebars, and specifically call out the November music round-up. It's splendid, thank you!

The sidebar has been a ton of fun lately. I'm always glad to see something there and I appreciate how it's often organized thematically. Keep up the great work. And good job MetaFilter, lots of fun posts, keep them coming.

Aw, thank you so much! 😊While we're here, I'll just mention that I use tags a lot to find things that fit together when I find a possible theme happening, so even if you feel like some tags are too general to be helpful (music, art, food, science, literature, books, etc.), they can be very useful for this purpose (as can some hyperspecific tags!), and as always, flagging as fantastic is a major help, along with favoriting. Thank you, everyone, for all your great posts and hard work and participation.

Thank you taz [and flt for this shoutout]! I somehow never paid attention to the sidebar before this year and now I regularly pick up otherwise unnoticed gems that way. Also really relish the thematic roundups (lazy pun intended for the recent food digest), as well as the pointers to neato comments by individual members. Really gives the front page a community feel. Danke!

I'm always glad to see the sidebar active, and it's been more excellent in the last even longish while than it was there before that. Thanks taz!

And yes, it's been fun for me to see MetaFilter having so much music stuff going on, and that round-up was delightful. I'd overlooked a couple of things mentioned and was glad to be pointed to them!

It is excellent, thank you, taz. I've really enjoyed it too. The one suggestion I'd make is to break up longer posts into parts: with the smaller font (I use Classic theme) I found it a bit hard to read the roundup, though the emojis to break up the text were a great help.
