If you're a fan of GraphFi, maybe you recently noticed it stopped working. I found a fix for it!
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! It's the first weekend of the month, so it's European-time-zone MetaTalkTails! This week, Monkey Toes wants a garden thread: “If there's one thing I like to show off more than my cats, it's what's growing in my garden,” quoth Monkey Toes.
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.

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.
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!
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.
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!
I think I may have read about this here on Metafilter? I believe it had begun in either Seattle or NYC, and is a dance class, by and for women only. And I remember you had to abide by the rules to even join in on the class - and the rules were something like the following: no judgments allowed, no body shaming, no ability shaming, no clothing shaming, no dance shaming, etc.
I am pretty sure this was an AskMe -- or in a comment responding to an AskMe -- and less than two years ago. Someone, or a few someones, went deep on telling us where to find highest quality Levi's pants and / or jackets. (Up until that day I thought all Levi's were created equal -- seem not.) Slowed, over-heated Sunday Google-Fu not providing me with any help. Anyone else remember this thread?
In the floating menu that appears after scrolling a bit down the page, between the profile icon and the x, is a small downwards arrow that looks exactly like what many sites use as an "expand menu" button (for example, see "Menu v" on the exact same floating menu). It is not an expand menu button. It is a "proceed to bottom of page" button.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, xenization (who is in grad school and can't have a pet) wants to hear all about your critters, and asks: "I'd love to see photos, obviously, but talk to us about their personalities. What quirky things do they do? What do they really love/hate? Any memorable stories to share? Let me live vicariously through you all."
How do you consume MetaFilter? Is it on your mobile device/phone? Are you mostly at your work/home computer? Tablet, laptop, kindle? Just wondering how the community primarily loads this site up.
There will be an online memorial service for longtime Mefite kmennie [obit post] on Saturday, August 25th from 4 to 5 pm ET.
Is it possible to see what other user's have added to their 'My Fanfare'?
In the wake of gman's death, I have been thinking about how unexpected kindnesses and generosity have improved my life and the lives of many others. I find such stories inspirational and comforting. Have you had such an experience? Please share your story.
It's time for another podcast, and boy what a busy month it's been. Jessamyn and I catch up a bunch on MetaFilter news, I say thank you probably too much but jeez you folks!, and also we talk about all kinds of rad things on the site itself. Runs just about 90 minutes.
Good Saturday evening (afternevening? I'm bad at timezones), MetaFilter! This week, jacquilynne wants to know about your fandoms! "What things do people consider themselves to be a huge fan of? Have they watched/read/collected/participated in every episode/book/version/event? Where do they chat about their fandom online? Do they have an OTP (one true pairing)? Do they read or write fanfic? Or cosplay a character?"
If people find them, I'd love to see FPP posts about exemplary masculine behavior (both in the sense of 'good' and 'being an example') on the Blue.
