Though I know we typically rail against its use in the overwhelming majority of cases, I only ask because this post being viewable from a location where the news it involves is subject to a suppression order is... troubling.
What is your most popular comment / post here? Mine, unfortunately, is a fart joke. Bonus question: What is your most popular favorite comment / post from other members?
The link for the MeFi Holiday Card Exchange is within!
I don't mean this to be Tone policing, but there are two Book posts on Fanfare about Jodie Picoult and the framing of the posts feels .. off?
Update today from houseofdanie, fearless organizer of the Winter Wishes Gift Drive: she's had some real-life setbacks that delayed the start this year, but it is happening.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, theora55 wants to know "what foods people love that are local. For instance, Columbus, Ohio, has sauerkraut balls, which are hella tasty, also, the jokes write themselves, albeit badly."
The holidays are here and whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it's a time where people often spend money buying gifts for friends and family. I thought it would be cool to have a place where we might think of others. It'd be nice if we could share some links to places on the web, local organizations and communities that we can donate money to. It would signal boost these places and provide an opportunity to share some joy with others less fortunate than ourselves.
AskMe responses seem to be getting meaner over the years. It keeps me from posting anything but the most fact-based or unimportant questions, so I suspect it keeps other people from posting substantial questions, too. Is this the atmosphere we as a community want for AskMe?
Metafilter emotional labor thread in the NYT.
A fair amount of the time, when I post something a little lower profile on FF, it does not properly load the poster. This is particularly true in the case of films. Is there a way we could verify the poster image (and/or upload one if one doesn't autoload) while making the post?
Fourteen years ago today, Matt started the $5 signups allowing all of us noobs to come in and mess up the place.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm feeling Christmassy now that (American) Thanksgiving is in the books, and Hannukah is like ALMOST UPON US (so early this year!), so it's a holiday open thread!
Anyway, we made a kid!
The annual check-in thread for MeFites participating in NaNoWriMo.
Hello friends. Eyebrows McGee is taking a much-needed nap, so I'm here instead this week. Tonight, I want to hear about your alternative holiday traditions. For any holiday at all -- do you celebrate it differently, in a good way? Did your family have a tradition you belatedly realized was just done by you? Did your holiday alternative ever go hilariously wrong?
Is there available data that shows when Metafilter and Ask Metafilter experience the highest volume of website engagement? Such as on what days and times of day are most users "on" MeFi and AskMe?
In this post on the Blue a bunch of us ordered free "Zozosuits", spotted body-scan jumpsuits for ordering tailored clothing. The previous MetaTalk post on the subject expired before we got the clothes in. I just got mine, has anyone else?
I noticed it's a little past the usual time that the cookie swap gets announced, and I miss it! For five years running, ausdemfenster gave us the awesome gift of organizing it. I don’t want to step on toes if I’m wrong, but I think she may not be taking it on this year. Regretfully, I'm not volunteering to run it, but I hoped if I called attention to it here, maybe someone else would?
Can we get the MeFiMall updated and publicized? Thanks!
An Ask me post from 2011 was quoted in New York Magazine's The Cut this week as part of an article titled, "Are Toilet Bowls Truly Too Short for Some Men’s Junk?"
