Let's make a MeFi mixtape!

In the spirit of drawing attention to all the great stuff on this site, I thought I'd remind people of the amazingly talented people who hang out on MeFi Music. (Yes it's a place!) I thought that it might be an idea for people to link to playlists they're created or songs they've favourited, and we can have a whole thread of all the great tunes people have created and shared FREE OF CHARGE ARE YOU KIDDING ME with all of us. Never been to MeFi Music? Never created a playlist? Now's your chance! Let us celebrate the coolest of all subsites - here's to The Black.

Metatalktail Hour: Looking forward to it!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I want to hear what you're looking forward to in your life right now! As always, these are conversation starters, not conversation-limiters, so tell us whatever's on your mind (avoiding only politics).

Want more site activity? Yes! When do we want it? Hopefully soon!

We've been chatting in the funding thread about a number of things, including the necessity of growing MeFi's userbase and creating a site climate that facilitates that. That discussion has a lot going on, so I thought it might be good to have a dedicated space specifically to talk about user site climate encouraging more discussion, commentary, and joining in on this community. That is: how can we as a community make this space enjoyable and interesting to engage in, both for strangers and each other?

Let's talk about MeFi Merch!

Alright, I suggested last week amidst the brainstorming in the State of the Site post that we set aside a thread specifically for MetaFilter merchandising chatter. This! Is! That! Thread! So, let's talk merch ideas. I'll lay out our current thinking and some options inside.

June 30 "Families Belong Together" rally catch-all

Initially envisioned as an Ask post about sign slogans, I'm switching to a MetaTalk post to encompass anyone's need for ideas around signs, organizing, strategies, post-rally experiences, etc. for this weekend's (June 30, 2018) Families Belong Together rally.

State of the Site: Metafilter financial update and future directions

Important site updates, folks:

1. The site is running at a significant deficit and we urgently need to make that up. Part of that is through additional direct community funding; you can help here.
2. We're looking at—and inviting community input on—several big-picture questions.

Today I want to lay out our budget and income streams, to explain where we're at and what we need to accomplish. I'll also talk a bit about how the community is doing, and what's coming up in the future.

MetaGoodness

Tell me something good. Something happy. Maybe it's a thing you did. Maybe it's a thing that was done for you. Share something good with me and the rest of us. I feel like we need some of that. There's been a lot of serious happening the last few days and I want to just hear something good, positive, and light. I like this place and all of you. Be kind to each other, love yourself. Tell me something good.

Hopeful Summer

Let's get some sparkle back into MetaFilter. This summer use the tag HopefulSummer to make posts about positive and hopeful things. It's easy to be down in the trenches with life, with politics, with the state of the world. Let's make MetaFilter somewhere people come to get a little shine back in their day, and lighten the load. Tell us about solar punk, about found communities, about magical art programs, about Native American women changing the world. Tell us about plants, and geology, and the sky. Tell us about the moments of joy that bring you peace and happiness. Tell us with links and HopefulSummer Posts.

Metatalktail Hour: Show Us Your Bags!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, a rerun of the thread that I loved so much I decided to create Metatalktails: Show us your bag! Or your EDC, if you're not a bag person. Your purse! Your backpack! Your messenger bag! Pictures! Links! Descriptions! I love hearing about other people's bags!

Hey, I'm talkin' here!

In the site activity megathread some suggested users ought to have some way of knowing just how much of a thread they're occupying. I added a userscript just for that purpose to the MefiScripts repository. It puts summary stats just below the comment box.

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! In honor of this hilarious thread, I want to know what words you well-read MeFites mispronounced when you first attempted them out loud! What words are you still avoiding? And of course your life updates!

World Cup 2018

Hard to believe it's been 4 years since the last World Cup, which after some discussion resulted in a series of front page posts [first, second, third, fourth].
With live events [like Olympics, Eurovision, Academy Awards] sometimes hosted on FanFare and sometimes hosted on MetaFilter [royal wedding], is there a plan, procedure or policy for 2018 World Cup On Metafilter?

Best thing you've read and/or heard lately

Spill the beans, what's the best thing you've read and/or heard lately? A great poem, short or long story, interesting article, a new single, an old album, or a live performance you just have to share?
