What happened to the MeFi Deleted sites?

Seems they haven’t been updated in a year or so. Searched the archives but couldn’t find any announcement.

It's close to the end of the week. Let's play a fun game. What was the last thing you searched for on Wikipedia? Your most recent Wiki. Feel free to share links to relevant Wiki below. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Cheers.

Let's start a Mefi BIPOC advisory board


Hi all, I want to thank you for your patience. After some conversation with staff, I’m going to take the lead on initiating some things that I am hopeful will change the way we handle things on the site.

*I am encouraging this thread to remain a space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color only.*

I’d like to hear from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color about their feelings on creating a community advisory board consisting of 5-10 rotating voluntary members. Our first meeting could consist of drafting community agreements to follow for meetings, creating an agenda with topics to cover, and ending the meeting with a summary of agreed-upon action items. I’m 100% open to suggestions and specificities around the structure of these meetings.

I’m imagining the advisory board as an intentional space and tool for addressing the ongoing concerns of the site. It'll be a space for solutions and changes to be implemented with a transparent and community-focused structure. You all deserve the space to have conversations with each other and with mod staff that produces tangible and sustainable results.

Friend me on Fitbit or MyFitnessPal?

Would anyone like to be my friend on Fitbit or MyFitnessPal? Links are in my profile. I tried the Social Explorer, but I figured there are plenty of unlisted people out there. Thank you! I'm only going to leave the links up for a little while because they link to real pictures of me, so if you're reading this in the future, feel free to memail me instead.

MetaDragons 🐉

I love dragons. They're one of my favorite creatures. There are many different types of dragons. Some mythical, some still living today. From literature, film & television, animation, & video-games, table-top games. There are many different breeds: chromatic or metalic? lightweight or heavyweight? Would you ride on their backs? Maybe you'd learn some magic. There have been some amazing posts on the blue and green related to dragons that are worth checking out. The conversation is open to any and all dragon-related subjects. Let's discuss dragons. RROOAARRR!!!!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, since we haven't done a picture one in a while, show us a picture of something new and different about your home during the pandemic! Do you have a makeshift home office? Do you have a mask storage station? Have you created a homeschooling hub for kids doing e-learning? Do you have food storage that could put a bunker to shame?
