Recent AskMe about hand-painted signs/becoming a sign painter?

I remember there being an AskMe recently about hand-painted signs — specifically (if I'm remembering rightly) about how to learn to paint them. Unfortunately, my search-fu has failed miserably, regardless of search terms I've used. Does this ring a bell? [more inside]

There's a mod on every corner

Is Matt diversifying the site further than we previously thought possible? I was surprised to see this on my receipt after stopping for coffee today. Will there be a free pony with every 12 cups? Are our beans now being served in venti mugs?

Pony Request: 160 hours between AskMes?

I like to post AskMes at around 10 am on Tuesdays. If I have my post ready at 9:15 or 9:30, I'm prevented from posting until it's been a full 168 hours since my last post. I think the one-post-a-week rule works really well, but it would be nice if it were a little less strict. Would you consider changing it from 168 hours between posts to 160 hours or 162 hours or even 166 hours? [more inside]

Best Stuff AskMe?

Some time ago (at least 2-3 years), there was an AskMe about "the best website for reviews of consumer products" or something like that. One answer featured a blog/forum meant entirely for reviews of headphones. Anyone remember either the thread or the site? It was orange/tan and very minimalist. Possibly spun off SomethingAwful.

Most popular AskMe posts of 2012

OK, it being year-end and all, I thought I'd go have a look at the most popular AskMe posts in the last year... only to find that I can't really filter down like that (leastways not so I can tell)... so I decided to put a list together myself, and make it my first post on the grey! 30 would be a nice, round number, but I could only find 29. Please enjoy responsibly! [more inside]

Browsing AskMe Questions for Resolutions

Feature request! For the AskMe "My Favorites" page, would it be possible to mark best-answered questions with the same little green checkmark that appears next to best-answered questions on AskMe's main page? I often favorite questions because (while I never would have thought to ask them in the first place) they pique my curiosity once I read them, and I mean to come back to them later. A checkmark in "My Favorites" would be an easy way to see, from that page, whether such questions had been answered since I'd favorited them. Thanks for your consideration, and I hope all is well with you. I send my fondest regards to you and yours.

Quit popping things up on me!

Bug (or feature?): The "mark question resolved" button on the "confirm resolved" page on Ask Me pops a new tab, where it probably should use the same tab, as you don't need the question anymore. (Also, on the MetaTalk preview, it says use the back button to tweak the form, when you don't need to, as the form lives down below. Which is where I'm typing this in. Alright I'll shut up and stop causing pb more work.)

She asked for help getting rid of shame, we gave her more.

Metafilter collectively piled on to this OP so hard that she returned to update that she was actually essentially being triggered by the responses. How can we do this better and keep our own issues out of being helpful? Is there a way to "report pileon"? Should there be? [more inside]
