Obligatory "obligatory pet pic" comments

Maybe I'm the only one, but the "pics or GTFO" business with respect to pet questions on AskMe really gets on my nerves. I feel like it makes MetaFilter come off as clique-y, and it trivializes serious questions about pet behavior and health. I've been letting this issue bother me for a long time now without saying anything, but a recent example has finally pushed me over the edge of raising the topic here. [more inside]

AskMe about mixed up text messages

I could have sworn that there was an AskMe not too long ago about sending one text message but having a different one come up on your recipient's phone. Of course, I can't find it. Am I thinking of something I read somewhere else, or does this question exist?

AskMe Has Changed My Life

Back on April 20--three full weeks ago--I saw this AskMe about Sherlock/Watson fanfic, and idly clicked on it. Then I followed a few links, because why not? I'm a curious sort of person. [more inside]

MeFi Bat Signal

Is there some sort of informal way that we can self-organize into a network of volunteers that can provide local assistance to AskMefites in need? Or maybe have the option for location information on AskMe questions so that we could receive alerts to local questions a la IRL? Or something? (Apologies in advance -- this is long, half-baked, inarticulate & rambly.) [more inside]

Writing to find a post about writing

Or it could have been a comment, about writing or planning a book. It went something like this. (I think it was askme, but I'm not sure). 1. Event 2. Climax 3. Ending And then 1a. Lead up to event. 1b. actual event. 1c. results of event. 2a. Lead up to climax 2b. Almost climax 2c. Climax! Showing a hierarchical method of laying out a story, so that the paragraphs practically write themselves. Thank you.

Looking for a MeTa

Does anyone remember a MeTa about AskMe questions that really, really did not go the way the asker expected? I can't seem to find the post I'm thinking of. It would have been fairly recent, probably posted in the last year or so.

A reasonless What's-Your-Favorite

I'd like to post a "What's your favorite X" AskMe. I'm using it to find the one answer I need for a specific use (and I'd be happy to update about my project in the thread later), but I think talking about my use in advance would bias people toward a too-narrow set of responses. [more inside]

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]

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]
