Tell me things to recover my optimism / good vibe.

I'm burnt out by all THIS (gestures wildly). Give me strategies to be happy again.

Metatalktail Hour: Recipes!

Happy Weekend, MetaFilter! (Indeed, the happiest weekend in quite a while for many US mefites!) I'm in too good a mood to think of a topic but I'm bored of my winter dishes, so tell me what you're cooking lately!

MetaFilter Gift Swap 2020 THANK YOU!

I just want to kick the thread off and thank my (seemingly anonymous) gifter for their awesome FRAMED Watership Down triptych. Your generosity, thoughtfulness, and creativity have me overwhelmed. I can't wait to hang it up in my new home. I hope that everyone is as touched by their gift and enjoy theirs as much as I do mine. This secret gift exchange always reminds me how lovely and generous we are to each other here on Metafilter. Wishing you all the happiest days ahead!

Surely this...

Celebration thread for the end of the previous Administration and roughly 10,000 years since a certain individual entered national politics.

Tiny Text - Please Stop

Can I respectfully ask the metafilter community to not so frequently use tiny text font?

Snark Less, Post More

We’d all benefit if there was more posting on Metafilter, even if it wasn’t perfect. It’d help if it wasn’t often so discouraging to submit posts, though. Here are some thoughts on how we could achieve this.

Dry January, Post-Inaugural Mulligan

Were you intending to engage in the practice known as Dry January? Were you derailed by [gestures broadly at everything]? Anyone up for giving it another shot starting January 21st, the day after Inauguration February 1st?

Linking Permission

Is it good manners to ask permission before linking to a non-corporate social media account?

MetaFilter Gift Swap Renaming

Back in August, I made a post about how we were going to tackle Secret Quonsar in 2020 -- and we wound up talking about the name of the swap itself, as well. If you participated in the swap this year, you should have received an email this morning with a link to a Google poll with some options. I wanted to make a MetaTalk as space to discuss pros/cons of various options.

New merch! Shirts, stickers, and magnets!

We talked about this in the run-up to the Gala, so: let's start off 2021 with some new merch! We've got new designs up, available as shirts on Neatoshop and as magnets and stickers on Teepublic, so if you've been looking for something MeFi-centric to drape over your mortal form or stick to your laptop or fridge or car or whatever the heck this is your lucky day.

Metatalktail Hour: Speaking of the mail....

More than usual, people are interacting via the post office, various delivery services, and sometimes becoming their own delivery services. I'd like to talk about the mail (since postal trivia is one of my nerdy interests). Tell me a story about the mail, or delivery of some kind, past, present, or future.

Six-volume (so far) thriller/spy series on Green/Blue?

I thought it was in this Ask, but it isn't. Very recently someone referenced a series of books in the political/thriller/spy/something genre, and said "and volume 6 has just been released on Kindle" or similar. I need a good book series and for the life of me I can't find this comment. Help, please? Thanks!

Hey DC folks, I hope you all are hunkered down and avoiding the Capitol area. Please be careful and stay safe.

looking for a post about learning to write

There was a (fairly recent I think?) question on AskMe from a person who was trying to help their son get better at writing coherently for school assignments and provided an example of the son's recent writing as an example. My partner's son is now experiencing a similar problem (distance learning is not helping, thanks pandemic) and I would like to find that question since I remember a few educators popped up in the answers with good advice. Thanks.

Two tips to be successful at work

I can't remember which colour board it was on, but there was a post/comment outlining two complementary attitudes/behaviours that were expected by bosses and enacted in the workplace by employees who were seen to be playing the game right. They were about performing what is asked without quibble.

Metatalktail Hour: New day, new year

Hello Mefites, happy 2021! It's a new year and we're all wishing for better days in the new. I've got my coffee underway this morning and it looks like the sun is going to make an appearance. Are you making resolutions, wishes, hopes, mottoes for this year? Are you doing anything good today or this weekend?
