Has anyone trained a neural network to generate AskMe or Metafilter posts? ...If not, can we do that?
Filling in for Eyebrows, who has been busy with Best Post Contest tagging, I bring you a Metatalktail suggestion from mefite sharp pointy objects, who would love to see members' "links to a home listing of their dream home in their dream city (or area) and [explanation] why this is their dream home/area. I love looking at home listings and would love to see other people's opinions and get to know them better."
What are some of your favourite custom MetaTags. I was given the opportunity to create the #gayblacksanta tag with my most recent post and I was smiling as I typed it out. You have your every day #science #books #videogames kind of tags (and of course these are important and useful). But then you have those special ones that are specific to a particular post. They're often one-off kind of tags and may not ever be used again based on their specificity. What are some of your favourites?
With the Unread, Illegible Tax Bill having passed the Senate, among other shattering, quotidian, or seasonal
joys nightmares events, I suspect that a place to howl may be necessary. Please, howl here.
Good Saturday Evening, MetaFilter! Tonight for metatalktails, filthy light thief wants to know how far you got on your NaNoWriMo this year, or share how any other project they're working on (or recently finished!) is going. If it's a THING, pictures are great!
This is MST Club announcing our 4th annual "No Stress" Christmas Video Marathon! No Stress means it's pretty laid back as far as marathons go: feel free to have it going on in the background to cooking, sleeping, football or whatever, or exchange jokes with us in the chat window. The primary site of this thing is the MST Club Cytube page, with our Rabb.it room as a possible alternate if things go awry. The time is throughout December 24 and 25, from 6 AM Eastern/ 3 AM Pacific through to Midnight on the 25th. Come by with or without your favorite nog if you like! More details are in the extended description.
Inspired by the post about furries being a community that helps each other out, I want to pose this here: Tell me about a time MeFites reached out and helped you. I wan to get those stories recognized.
Went to make my second edit in an ask answer (i suck at typing apparently) and noticed the "Time Remaining to Edit: " was 5 mins and some seconds. Missed grabbing a screenshot unfortunately. I thought the edit window was 5 mins... did I mis-remember, has it changed, or just a random bug?
Sometimes I browse MetaFilter while logged out. If I click Log In to comment and fill out the form, I get redirected to the main page. Usually my goal is to return to the post I was originally on. Right now that means a back-back-refresh. Thoughts on changing this?
Would anyone be interested in a holiday card exchange? I'd also be happy to have a list of people who are interested in receiving holiday cards, even if you don't want/can't send any out this year - I love sending mail!
If you read the short story Cat Person in the New Yorker and the NYT interview with author Kristen Roupenian, maybe you wondered what other MeFites thought of it, because it seemed to be right up Metafilter's alley. So did the author. Congratulations to MeFi's Own Sock Person Cat Puppet, who has great taste in sockpuppet usernames, among many other things.
Hey folks, big discussion time. We're going to be making some changes on how U.S. political discussion plays out on MetaFilter, to try and make sure it remains available as a useful resource in a way that isn't as unsustainable as the current approach has been. I’ll lay out some concrete steps we’re taking, and some general thoughts, below. This is detailed but important and I appreciate you taking the time to read through it.
Hi friends! This post is for folks to share friend codes for the new mobile game from Nintendo, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. Happy camping! List your game character name and your code.

I really think the word bitch is problematic and highly offensive and adds nothing to the inclusivity here. This may be an antipodean thing but it’s a sexist and nasty insult. May I request we discuss not using it? Or any gendered insults?
It’s been A Year, and we here at cookie swap central would like to bring baked joy to as many MeFites across the globe as possible. If you'd like to bring edible tidings of cheer to people’s lives this month, read on.
This year was incredibly hard for me in a lot of ways.
