Mefi condolences thread more visible pls September 13, 2001 1:00 PM   Subscribe

Hi, would it be possible to link the Mefi condolences thread on the main page below the member number or something? This is not a discussion thread, and it would be useful to have it up top instead of buried somewhere.. Maybe also a link to the dontations page? Just an idea..

I'd like to vote for deleting the stupid thing. Surely there are other places for that.

Do you really think that any victim of this tragedy is actually going to visit Metafilter just to read it?

If you want to help the victims, go donate blood.

Blood banks are full apparently, demand should start within a week or so. I thought this would help people to express their sympathy - I always thought metafilter was a community of sorts.. Some people here know people who have passed away - several of my friends have friends whose lives were taken in this terrible tragedy, and I'm just a kid in London. I'm sure things like this will spring up soon enough all over the net anyway.. If I find one, I'll post a link (don't worry, just the one..).

hey steven - what about those of us in the metafilter community who have lost people? i found the thread very moving, after the initial nonsense. it was the only place on mefi that i felt it might be appropriate to share the loss of our friend david. i wanted the people i know here to know about it. they weren't going to find that out by reading a list of survivors and victims on cnn.
