Your media of 2022

What did you play this year? What did you watch? What did you read? None of it has to be the greatest ever, or even anything that came out in 2022, I'd just like to hear about what you spent time with and what it meant to you.

Mefi Mastodon server?

Would there be interest in having a Metafilter Mastodon server? I think this idea has come up a couple of times, though scattered around; having the conversation in one thread might be helpful.

What The MeFi BIPOC Board Does

MetaFilter’s Global BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Advisory Board wants to share some context and plans with MetaFilter at large. This text is drawn from a conversation the BIPOC Board had with MetaFilter’s newly-elected Steering Committee in September 2022.

Heads up: Sending MefiMail might silently break. When it doesn’t work, the message is not sent, and it doesn’t show up in your Sent Mail folder.

Ad Bars

Can we stop plastering the top of the site with fundraising and community notices? It's incredibly annoying.

🔊 🎊 🔊 Announcing MetaFilter Events 🔊 🎊 🔊

The inaugural Metafilter Events is finally here! As one of the closing initiatives under our Metafilter Fundraising Drive, our online events series features presentations, workshops and discussions across a fascinating range of topics, themes and perspectives - from Mefites and friends-of-Mefites that have generously volunteered to speak and/or teach on these subjects. Tickets, bundled passes and gift cards are available now, and you can also sponsor fellow Mefites to attend paid events.

Proposed: Auto-replace Twitter URLs with Nitter instead

Twitter's descent into becoming naught but a poorly-run distributor of hate speech and adbots is well documented elsewhere on the site. It may no longer be ethical to participate in the Twitter ecosystem. Why give them any of our web traffic, or allow them access to our computers? The proposal is that whenever a URL in a post or comment is being sent to the site, it automatically swaps out "" with ""

Metatalktail Hour: It's what's inside that counts

Hello and welcome to your weekend, mefites! Since it's been a while, today I'd like to ask you, "what's in your bag?" Clutches, totes, diaper bags, purses, satchels, backpacks, pocketbooks, pouches, wallets — all are welcome to spill their guts here. Show a photo if you're brave enough ... otherwise, just describe the inner life of your bag.

Thank You

It's Thanksgiving week, so I would like to give a big THANK YOU to the MetaFilter community. I am the least social person, but I check in with MeFi every morning and night. You all, as irascible and argumentative as you may be, are my friends. Thank you, everyone.

MeFi Posts for "Sale"

We're all pitching in for Fundraising Month. Ever wanted to see a post on a topic, but didn't want to write it yourself for whatever reason? Let us do it for you.

Thinking ahead to a celebration!

MetaFilter has made so much progress! With both the fundraising and the community involvement. We should think about a celebration! Here are a couple of ideas: 1. We could do something by Zoom the last week of the events. 2. In January, we could designate a weekend where we encourage people to get together for IRL events.

Turkey Day in the MST Club room!

It is Thanksgiving Day, and as is our wanton wont, we are watching the official 2022 Turkey Day marathon (via their YouTube stream) of Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes in the MST Club room all day long! It started at 7 AM and should be going for quite a while, they have a lot of episodes this year, and they've been "surgically enhanced," meaning they're uprezed and restored! Come join us for a while if that sounds fun!
