Any chance of a set of guidelines? December 3, 2003 1:00 AM   Subscribe

I've had three friends asking me what "hoops we have to jump through" to become members of MetaFilter now that the new process is in place. Any chance of a set of guidelines?

Either that, or we can start talking about building an assault course for the new signups... ;)

Hoop #1: READ THE THREAD ABOUT WHAT HOOPS YOU HAVE TO JUMP THROUGH.

Hoop #2: WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?

Hoop #3: Accept "the insideous right wing conservative bias on metafilter", or suffer the supreme consequences!

I should point out that the spelling of "insideous" is Quonsar's and not mine. However, I'm sure that he was only making a play on the words "insidious" and "hideous", but felt the need to explain away such spelling inconsistencies. Ahem.

are you talking about the vast thread that starts with one idea and ends with another?

I dunno, but I think this thread has the potential to generate 82 opinions, 95 and a half snarks, at least 20 word-by-word dissections of what mathowie previously mentioned, 2 score-settlings, and a poem from troybob.

So it's good.

Potential? I think it has a duty!
PS: isn't twine42 getting moody?

You've had three friends, twine42? That's nothing. I once had a week's worth of middle-aged, drunken, cigar-puffing Cuban guaracheras, all said to called Lola, in one single day at the races. ;)

I got yer hoop right here, but jumping through it might get both of us arrested.

Haha I made a funny.

Seriously, I think Matt said that he was busier than expected at the moment, and to just hang on a bit, didn't he? I'm too lazy to go and look.

Noticed Matt needs help specifically, double posts. So the hardest hoop will be finding a link that is not posted everywhere. Goodluck since I've yet found one.

clavdivs, those are nice, but not quite what we need - those are "assult courses."

Step Number One: Shine Miguel's shoes.
Step Number Two: Steal the prized golden egg from the unviersity president's den.
Step Number Three: Smear catsup all over your body and sign a Joni Mitchell tune on command.

After that, the fraternity will decide if you're part of the club.

Tell your friends to buy me a camera, and they can have my userID.
