Metatalktail Hour: Prized Possession

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! Tonight's question comes from zamboni, who wants to know what your most prized possession is! Obviously you have to tell us the story about WHY it's your most treasured possession. Or, you can just tell us what's up with you, how the new year's going, whether it's cold enough to freeze your Winnebago where you are ... [more inside]

Staff tags expanded to the Blue and the Green

EpiMetaFilter view pony

Could there be a view of all of the posts across all of the sites, MetaFilter, AskMetaFilter, MetaTalk, FanFare, FanFareTalk (???), Projects, IRL, etc.? I love the unique feel of the different sites, but I would love one place to see the flow of activity. Maybe CircuMetaFilter? Would this have a homogenizing effect? Impossible in Cold Fusion? Already attempted and failed miserably?

Hover Pony?

Can either the titles of political posts include a marker that they are political or have the hovertext or some other indicator in the Contact Activity feed say it is political (#potus45) to save me a click and instant click away? [more inside]

Fucking Fuck, v7

It's time for another FUCKING WTF thread! Not even a week into 2018, the current occupier of the Oval Office has baited Kim Jong-un about having a "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear button, asserted his former political opponent, her chief staffer, and his ex-FBI director should all be in jail, feuded with his former campaign manager Steve Bannon over indiscreet quotes, threatened the publisher of an unflattering insider account of his first year with legal action, addressed the White House press corp with a pre-recorded video, and suspended security aid to Pakistan. As a public service for MeFites, here is a place to cry out, commiserate, and console in the New Year. It's chaos; be kind. [more inside]

❄2018 Winter Check-In❄

Both Canada and the United States are in the midst of a very cold winter blast. What meteorologists have dubbed as a "Bomb Cyclone"! Frigid temperatures, snow, ice, rain, strong winds are things to watch out for. Thought it would be good to have a place for us to check-in and make sure we're all safe and warm. Take care of yourself, your friends, family members, and our furry loved ones (they get cold too). Be careful, plan ahead, wear layers, and as my mom always reminds me, “Cover your head.”

Please help me track down the various links people have posted in the MeFi politics megathread that argue that general, across-the-board voter turnout is the key to defeating Republicans in elections. [more inside]
