[MeFi Site Update] December 2nd

Hi there, MetaFilter!

Itโ€™s been a while! Iโ€™m happy to be back with this special update. Youโ€™ll find some updates regarding the site below. Iโ€™m looking forward to your feedback and questions. [more inside]

Posting for December: Advent2022 tag

I'm committing to post an FPP every day from Dec 1 to Dec 24 for Metafilter - seeing more activity and diversity on the blue is a direct action to boost Metafilter for our current and future users. Please join in and tag away with #Advent2022! I apologise in advance for using a tag which has religious elements but the Advent concept of a countdown with a gift every day seemed ideal, and I didn't want to commit to posting during my actual Christmas days which are usually packed (or devoted to post-food coma). Happy to change to alternatives that fit proposed below.

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. [more inside]

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!
