MetaMMO: Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy!!!!!

Many mefites play MMO/MMORPGs and I thought it might be nice to create a space to share our contacts with one another so we can go on some raids together. Whether it's World of Warcraft (WoW), Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), Black Desert Online (BDO), Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV), Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2), Eve Online (EO), Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR), Guild Wars 2 (GW2), Runescape, Star Trek Online (STO), whatever MMO you play, let us share our gamer tags/contacts/character names and join in a virtual space of our choosing to get our game on.

Question about sewing ergonomics?

I thought I saw an AskMe about how to set up a sewing table to minimize back pain, but I can't find it now. Can anyone point me towards it? I've seen this AskMe about lino cutting, but that's not the same.

Metatalktail Hour: A Dumb Game

Good Saturday Evening, MetaFilter! This week, I thought we could play a nerd game: Retitle your favorite novel as if it were a (not very good) academic paper, and we'll try to guess the novel. For example, "High-Wealth Men Seeking Partners in Regency England: Two Case Studies" could be Pride and Prejudice. [more inside]

Meta mini isolation GISH, anyone?

I'm definitely already staying in my house all day and behaving strangely. Perhaps we could make it a team effort? May 2020 GISH minihunt [more inside]

What do you need? What do you have?

If anyone in the Seattle area needs a well-established Sourdough starter and is willing to come pick it up in the Southwest, me mail me and I’ll arrange to leave a container on my porch for you. This is a thread for anyone who has too much of something to offer to give it away and too little of something to make requests.

Two decades in the blue

May 22nd is my metafilter 20 year anniversary. I can remember signing up from my little cinder block office in graduate school at the University of Louisville. I thought I'd post now so I don't forget. It's kind of amazing that this community still exists, and wanted to thank everyone for their contributions. Since joining Metafilter I've finished grad school, had three more kids, gotten a full time job and of course gotten older. Thanks all for your many links, comments and useful solutions over the years.

Metatalktail Hour: Fun at Home

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm curious what you're up to for fun at home. Maybe you've picked up some new hobbies, or returned to old hobbies. (Or maybe you are spending all your time managing small children's distance learning and providing tech support for their Zoom classes, what delight.) Anyway, dazzle us with your stories of fun stuff to do at home!

Metatalktail Hour: Mundane observations

Happy weekend Mefites! This weekend I'm curious to hear your little observations -- maybe about the weather, or new things you've noticed in your living space, or your pet's personal habits, or minor mysteries unfolding outside your windows. [more inside]
