Metatalktail Hour: Favorite People

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, Deezil has a super-sweet request: "Talk about the good and positive relationships in your life, people who make you smile when you think of them, and you're always quick to reach out to them, when there's good times or bad."

MetaLifeHack

It's the end of another week. Politics is awful like usual, and much of the world seems to literally be on fire. So let's talk about something else instead. Tell me about a cool 'life hack'. Maybe you found a way to pack luggage in a way that has made traveling easier. Maybe you found a way to deal with oily skin using some old world natural remedies. Maybe there's a cool browser extension or add-on that lets you do some nifty thing in your day to day Internet consumption. Whatever it is, feel free to share some life hacks with the MetaFilter community. I'm always excited to learn about ways to make my life a bit easier/better.

Fucking Fuck XIII - I'm sorry but I've got a bit to say.

Really, it's all just a bit much isn't it? I mean, good fucking god. I tried to put it into words but it's just incoherent rage and swearing now. Fucking hell, you know? Fuck this fucking shit, honestly.

Minorest pony request! Natural-language new-comments cue

It must be the old UX instincts acting up in me, but I'm finally moved to ask about a feature of the beloved site which has been irking me for quite some time: the clipped engineerese in which the notice "7 new comments — show" is expressed.

LinkedIn Metafilter group

Is anyone still active in the Metafilter LinkedIn group? I certainly forgot that I myself was a member and then bumbled into it today and found that all conversations are at least two years old. Had it been a useful board in the past? Anyone interested in getting more active there again?

New merch: Seal of the Cabal

We're rolling out a new shirt design, featuring art from robocop is bleeding, who has taken his rad hand-carved block printing aesthetic to the eldritch glyphs and sigils of MetaFilter history to produce the Seal of the Cabal. (There is, of course, no cabal.) (But there is an alternate, smaller version of the design for folks who prefer how that sits on a shirt.)

Mock pagination userscript

This is a userscript I've been working on that adds the appearance of pages to threads. It's a visual change only, so you still have to wait for the full thread to load, but it might help a little with responsiveness and navigation.

MeFi Card Club appreciation

Hi y'all! Comments are closed on the MeFi Card Club announcement post, and now that we're a couple months in, I thought it'd be nice to give folks a place to share their appreciation for cards they've received and/or check in about cards they've sent. Big thanks to Fig for organizing & running the exchange, and to everyone else who has helped this along!

GraphFi is dead, long live GraphFi!

If you're a fan of GraphFi, maybe you recently noticed it stopped working. I found a fix for it!

Bug: Pasting links into comments

I'm no longer able to paste URLs into the link-helper alert window on Chrome. It just replaces the link text with the URL. Still works on Firefox. Example GIF.

MetaTravels

It's the end of another long week. Let's talk about something nice again. Tell me about your travels. Maybe it's a place right in your home town/city, maybe you're planning a long over due summer vacation, maybe it's the beach, maybe it's a hike through the woods, maybe you're visiting your family/friends a few states/provinces over, maybe you're going to Europe or Asia for the very first time, no matter the place or the distance, tell us about your travels.

Simply Stupendous Sidebar!

May I just take a moment to say that whoever has been doing the sidebar on the front page of the Blue has been just fuckin' KNOCKING IT OUT OF THE PARK lately? I love the grouping of similar posts, I love the themes that have been played with, I just love how creative and how engaging it has been lately. Today's Women's Work grouping was so great that it brought me here to make this post. This is just a shoutout and a thank you for what you're doing!

143: Sisters, Am I Right?

Shooting at the walls of podcast, bang bang! I am an episode! The latest episode of the MetaFilter monthly podcast, that is, but also I have Patty Smyth stuck in my head I guess. Anyway! Me and jessamyn get to catchin' up on the month that was on MeFi, and miscellaneous kibitzing, as we are wont to do! This one runs a little under 80 minutes.

The rumours of GISH's death have been greatly exaggerated

GISH (formerly GISHWHES; the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) is back, and so is the unofficial MeFite team Strange Fascination (previously, more previously). We have some open spots on the team. Would you like to join us, gentle MeFites?

Let's Organize The Holiday Movie Club for 2018! The Holiday Movie Club is when we watch heartwarming holiday films from, approximately, American Thanksgiving weekend (starting Wednesday, 21 November) to New Years Day. What's a holiday film? A film set during the holidays, or that deals with holiday themes, or that you have a tradition of watching during the holidays. If you have other holiday film traditions, you are welcome to post them too!
