Disambiguating 45 from 46

For the sake of our tender political psyches as well as the mods' I propose either: A )Dem primary candidates' posts are not included on the current US politics side bar or B) there be a separate Demprimary side bar, with the same opt in/out button.

MetaBears ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ

End of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. I just want to talk about bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica. Black bears, brown bears, polar bears, giant pandas. Bears are awesome. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. We're all fighting a battle that others cannot see. Cheers.

Farewell pjern.

I am saddened to report that longtime member pjern has died today. He loved this website and all of you. As he travelled the country, he never missed an opportunity to go to a meetup. He was kind and generous and beloved.

I'm not clear on how these work or who runs them, but thank you for fixing them.

Could we see more "Best Of" in the "Best Of" section on the front page?

Over the last several years, the "Best Of" section seems to have become more of a "news" section, promoting podcast episodes as well as community and limited time events. There used to be much more of a focus on highlighting fantastic comments and interesting under-the-radar threads, across all the subsites, and I miss that.

Metatalktail Hour: Tools

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, Too-Ticky wants "to hear about people's favourite tools. No matter what the tools are for. Professional, domestic, recreational, you name it. The tools you have and use, the tools you wish you had, and the tools that you used to have and are missing still."

It's a message board that isn't really around much anymore...

During the most recent Sh!tpost Podcast, Jared Holt interviews Christian Vanderbrouk of twitter and lately Bulwark fame. Metafilter is mentioned.

Definitive Answer to an AskMe - A Decade Later

10 years ago an AskMe user who had ordered a TV online ended up receiving the wrong order, instead being delivered a much nicer, higher end TV than the one she had purchased. This user came to AskMe inquiring if it would have been ok to have kept the nicer television, leading to a very lively discussion. A decade later, a definitive answer.

Managing a swap? Streaming music edition

I was looking at the wiki and I noticed that the last mixtape swap was in 2014. I think it could be fun to have another one, maybe through making playlists on a streaming music service like Spotify. I have never run a swap before though.

Fanfare Pony Request. Ability to hide/mute shows ?

If the technical overhead is not too much, would it be possible to allow logged in users to mute/hide certain shows completely?

Contact Form failing to Send

Unfortunately, a bug was causing contact form messages from people with e-mail addresses @aol.com and @yahoo.com.(something) to not be sent.

I'm really sorry. This should now be fixed, and if contact form messages aren't being sent out in the future, I'll receive a notification about that.

ISO two comments

1) a comment in a sci-fi/short stories/drones post on the blue about a flock of drones coming home to roost at sunset (possibly glittering in the sunlight?). Posted some time in the last few years.

Other one below the fold.

Bored enough to look at AskMeFi

Apparently someone at Bored Panda just spotted an old AskMeFi question that was answered by Mefi's own Adam Savage. And they posted about it. You can read it here.

Midwest Flooding Checkin

The situation in Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, and elsewhere in the Midwest looks to be horrible. Any MeFi's out there want to let us know if you're ok or if you need help?

Maybe not so grand

This is fairly minor in the scheme of things, and I feel kind of weird making a post about it, but it never gets easier to see Georgette Heyer and The Grand Sophy warmly recommended.
