Metatalktail Hour: Fashion Police

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I want to hear about your most regrettable youthful fashion decision! Or, heck, it could be from last week. Just whatever time you were like, "Oooooh, this is a cool trend, I want in on it ... oh, nope, nope, I was very very wrong." [more inside]

should televised US presidential debates go in fanfare?

This is a MetaTalk to discuss whether presidential debates, such as the one we had tonight, which was posted as an FPP, should instead be put in FanFare. FanFare is a space with a specific category designated for live "Special" televised events, whereas posting about the debate on the blue (as happened this evening) ends up containing the same kind of fig-leaf URLs that generate liveblogging megathreads rather than actual discussion of a cool thing which was discovered and linked on the web.

Mefite's website of evidence of Trump's collusion

I remember that somebody in the megathreads was keeping a website that compiled and organized all the little bits of information that came out in the news about Trump's collusion with Russia (and maybe also other Trump stuff), but I can't remember the name and haven't been able to search for it successfully. Does somebody have a link?

MetaAnniversary: FizzRecordings? nightFizz?

On this exact date, one year ago, I messaged Nightrecordings via MeMail to discuss this post about Serena Williams at the US Open. One thing led to another and...we're now married. I wouldn't have the love of my life without this community. I want to thank everyone here who made that possible. Apologies for the selfishness of this MetaTalk. I love you Nightrecordings! ❤️

of the versions
that MeFites created

Forgive me
it was for a class
on text and audience
and the students seemed to like it

Sooo...It happened with earlier tech!

I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their copy machine, or why. [more inside]

Seeking an essay posted on MeFi

Do you remember a personal essay about a female researcher who very nearly missed the opportunity to present her work (due to a terrible combination of romantic breakup, burglary, and something else?) but prevailed, and went on to win major accolades? [more inside]

Happy birthday, Jessamyn!

In the grand tradition of celebrating jessamyn day every year, happy birthday to you up there in VT and to me and all the other MeFites whose day it is! You were one of my very first Internet Heroes, who just seemed comfy in knowing things and being good to people.
