Platform/system requirements in video game posts

Many thanks to everyone who makes MetaFilter posts about cool new video games! And one request: When possible, could these posts please include information about which platforms the game runs on?

πŸ“†

End of another long week, let's carve out a space to talk about something other than politics for those that need that space. 2020 is a leap year, which means we all get an extra day, and this year, for the first time in almost 30 years, 29 February falls on a Saturday (tomorrow). Let's open up this space to talk about leap years, leap days, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings. Basically anything related to numbers and dates in general. Were you born on a leap year/day? If so, how do you celebrate? Or maybe you were married on a leap day? I'm sure that makes for some interesting anniversary celebrations. Whether its you or your friends or family members, let's talk about the days, weeks, months, the calendar. As always, remember to be kind to yourself and to others.

Coronavirus check-in thread

Catch-all thread for mefites living in the virus in Asia or directly affected. No idle speculation or β€œit hasn’t come here yet but I think...” chat, but actual news, updates and more from people dealing with the virus affecting daily life.

Could you help me find this tenuously metafilter related article?

During the last soccer / football world cup there was a small series of niche articles in various publications about the intersection of the adoration of footballers and discrimination of immigrants in the soccer nations of Europe. I want to find one article about a specific English team member who's sister took the bus with him several nights a week to get him to training in London club's youth section.

Fanfare Games

I want to gush about Animal Crossing: New Horizons but I'm not sure a link to the direct would be a good post. Any news about adding Video Games to Fanfare?

Secret Quonsar 2019 THANK YOU!

Thrilled and honored to be the first to post a THANK YOU to -- I don't know who specifically, but the kind and generous soul who honored my request to be sent "anything made of dark chocolate that comes from their corner of the universe." I am now the very, very happy recipient of 6 glorious bars of superior dark chocolate from Toronto. I shall savor every bite.

Metatalktail Hour: Games! Boardgames, phone games, and more

Happy weekend, Mefites! This weekend, jacquilynne wondered what games people are enjoying on Android phones lately. I'm also wondering what other kinds of games you've all been into -- boardgames, cardgames, rpg's, console or pc games. Even physical games you play with your actual body, if that's how you roll.

Mathematical constants, for example, the 72 character limit on post titl

While drafting this FPP, I had to omit words from the title of the article I was linking to in order to fit within the 72 character limit on FPP titles. I noticed today that someone else was bitten by the same "feature", leading to a misspelling of the author's name, until cortex stopped by to fix things manually. While I understand the desire to keep FPP titles concise, I feel like 72 is rather strict, and that we should discuss increasing it.

Won't somebody think of the Twitterless?

It's a request. I have never been on Twitter, and don't plan to be. So when there's a comment on the blue that consists only of a link to a tweet, I can't read it. I just see a picture of a bird. This is frustrating, especially when I don't bother to over-hover the link to identify it as a tweet. My understanding is that tweets are limited to a small number of characters. If there isn't some Twitter mechanism blocking the copying of content, could you please paste that content into the comment? TIA

Disability-related posts appreciation

I just wanted to note the fact there are two really good disability-threads on the front page, and I am here for it! I was pleasantly reminded of the #poctakeover, and while I'm not sure there is similar intent behind the disability posts, I just wanted to say I'm one happy wheelchair user this afternoon.

Metatalktail Hour: Mixups and mistaken identity

This weekend, Tehhund wants to hear about mixups and cases of mistaken identity. Has anyone ever mistaken you for someone else, or vice versa? Or maybe your email address or username got confused with someone else's so you got messages intended for them? What happened?

Sharing copyright infringing material on metafilter?

What is the metafilter opinion on sharing links to material that might be infringing copyright? For example, https://readcomiconline.to/ They have the complete Maus, and several books by Will Eisner among others that I'm pretty sure they don't have the rights to. Am I right about that? I can't see anything on the site that suggests the DO have the rights. I'd love to create a metafilter post sharing these, but it seems wrong, since this is essentially a pirate site, as far as I can tell?

~*Glitter*~

For those of you consumed by the mystery discussed in this FPP on the glitter industryβ€”which (secretive) industry is the #1 purchaser of glitter?β€”the podcasters at Endless Thread appear to have uncovered the answer. It’s...below the fold.
