Say goodbye to gman

As some of you may know, former Toronto Mefite gman (Gabe) has been battling cancer for the last several months. Its been a long, hard fight, during which no stone was left unturned in the search for his cure, taking him from Ontario to the U.S., to Paris, and on to Heidelberg, Germany, then finally back home to Canada a few weeks ago. His wife and friends sent out an email this weekend, and with their permission, the message has been adapted and presented here for Mefites who knew him:

The 'Can I Eat This?' Cookbook

There have been several posts over the past few years of folks wanting to create a Mefi cookbook. In the spirit of building community I thought I would start actually collecting recipes that people had posted with the intention of sharing for the book.

What's your Immigrant story?

The antidote to despair is hope. Hope is the heart of migration. I'd love it if we can share the stories of migration that brought us to where we are, wherever that may be. These stories are important. They are ours, our heritage. For the biggest umbrella that "our" can encompass.

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.

Updating the MeFi Projects subsite guidelines

Hey, so, MetaFilter Projects! It's one of my favorite parts of the site, where members can post and share their personal creative work. And we've done a little work to update the posting guidelines there, to try and make it a little more clear and generous about what's a good fit. Come on in for details!

MetaSnackFilter

Let's lighten the mood. It's the end of the week and I want to hear about something fun and not about politics. Tell me about a really awesome snack/food you just ate. What you eating?

MetaFilter revenue update: holy cow, y'all!

Recently, I announced that MetaFilter was in serious financial trouble, and asked you to help with additional community funding of the site.

Y'all have really, really come through. Recurring contributions supporting the site are up by almost $10,000 a month and growing, erasing our current shortfall and helping move MetaFilter toward a more sustainable, independent revenue model. Community funding alone now covers very nearly half our operating budget. That's amazing.

Come on in and I'll give you the details on what's happened and what we're up to next.

Metatalktail Hour: Great find!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, veggieboy says: "Inspired by some very old recipes my mom unearthed and by having watched way too much Antiques Roadshow, I’d love to hear about people’s best “finds.” Doesn’t matter whether the value is based on sentiment, money or amusement."

Pony request: in the list of book related fanfare posts, show the author (and series when it's relevant, maybe number in series) as well as the title of the books.

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.
