Contact Form failing to Send

Unfortunately, a bug was causing contact form messages from people with e-mail addresses @aol.com and @yahoo.com.(something) to not be sent.

I'm really sorry. This should now be fixed, and if contact form messages aren't being sent out in the future, I'll receive a notification about that.

New Telephone Pictionary thread!

Team Singing Telegram, good news--my latest life crisis took a breather for one day and I got our booklet in the mail. Like, in the actual physical mail stream. I promise. I'm very sorry for the delay!

Political Humorizing Thread

I saw this cartoon today and needed a place for it. Laughing at politicians, as opposed to laughing with them, is a much needed function of democracy; I mean, really we can't all hang out at the bank, all the time. Any way, Pat Bagley does it again!

Fucking Fuck XX - Fucking Dos Equis

Tiny compose windows

Is there a really good logistical reason why websites including Metafilter use such small compose windows (I mean physically small on the screen, not window as in time window)? I feel like it makes it hard to avoid mistakes while you're composing (yes I know about preview, it's not the same as seeing a larger window while you type).

Midwest Flooding Checkin

The situation in Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, and elsewhere in the Midwest looks to be horrible. Any MeFi's out there want to let us know if you're ok or if you need help?

Farewell pjern.

I am saddened to report that longtime member pjern has died today. He loved this website and all of you. As he travelled the country, he never missed an opportunity to go to a meetup. He was kind and generous and beloved.

We're Still Here

The Web is 30. MeFi is nearly 20. Times change. Tell me about it.

Bored enough to look at AskMeFi

Apparently someone at Bored Panda just spotted an old AskMeFi question that was answered by Mefi's own Adam Savage. And they posted about it. You can read it here.

Bug linking to Instagram from Metafilter?

Do links to Instagram cause weird browser behavior for you? If so, is this a Metafilter issue, a browser issue, an Instagram issue, or what?

Just Share Something Good

It's been a difficult week. Let's talk about something that isn't related to the news or a source of the never ending stream of nightmare fuel we encounter on the rest of the web. Just share something good with the MetaFilter community. We all could do with a story that brings a smile, or a laugh. Maybe share a photo of a cute pet or baby, or tell us about that slice of pie you enjoyed, whatever it is, just share something good. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. We're all on this rock together.

Maybe not so grand

This is fairly minor in the scheme of things, and I feel kind of weird making a post about it, but it never gets easier to see Georgette Heyer and The Grand Sophy warmly recommended.

Managing a swap? Streaming music edition

I was looking at the wiki and I noticed that the last mixtape swap was in 2014. I think it could be fun to have another one, maybe through making playlists on a streaming music service like Spotify. I have never run a swap before though.

MetaTalk, much?

The March issue of Language, the journal of the Linguistics Society of America, features a citation of a past MetaTalk on the use of the X-much construction on MetaFilter by cortex.

I have defeated the shark game

Many moons ago, the shark game was posted on the Blue. (Also, 2, 3) I had never played a clicker game before, but I played. And I played a lot and then I left it for a few months. And then I got pregnant. Being pregnant takes forever and involves a lot of waiting, so somehow early in the pregnancy I stumbled upon the idea of a pregnancy project in which I would get "lots" of everything and have everything going up by "lots per second" by the time baby game. Baby is 22 months old and I have succeeded. Thanks for nearly two years of purpose-to-my-life, Metafilter and boo_radley.

2 Hyuck 2 Hyucking

So our first experimental Hyucking Hyuck thread worked out pretty well, and then a month went by and it closed. So: here we are with round two! This is a dedicated space for riffing and jokes, designed in particular to take some strain of the overcrowded US politics catch-all threads.

How much do we make?

Between the discussion of the average American and the previous FPP about parental aid and class and the discussion of grocery cashiers in another thread leading to a comment from a person to the effect of not feeling like a real MeFite because of salary, I've been thinking about class on MeFi. What is the range of incomes and class experiences here? Where are we, collectively, coming from? And how can we handle things better when we discuss class?
