Know Your MetaFilter

A little something for the old-timers: MetaFilter made a brief appearance alongside beloved sister site Fark on a recent Know Your Meme regarding its participation in 2003's Bubb Rubb craze. We were so young.

Burn jokes? Seriously? Did Fark buy Metafilter?

"[many comments removed - can we try it again without knee jerk mormon and burn victim jokes, please? MetaTalk is your option.]" AARGH! [more inside]

AskMe comment linked to by LifeHacker

Hey MetaFilter is famous again! Adam Savage's AskMe answer shows up on LifeHack. (Via Fark. Oh the irony.)

CNN mentions MetaFilter (and Fark)

"...Fark.com, a collection of reader-submitted links to amusing videos, jokes, and curiosities from all over the Web, could become the most profitable site in mainstream blogdom. Already it vies with FM stablemate MetaFilter for the top spot in blog traffic rankings."

Fark Uses Metafilter As Source

Since when does MeFi have its own source icon on Fark?

a bit too farky?

a bit to farky? A one link page to a single "strange news" story is fark's bread and butter, and they posted this a couple hours ago. I realize that metafilter is a better place to talk about this sort of thing, but what is there to say? I doubt there Anyone here that thinks people should be arrested "for their protection" for being drunk at private parties?

I thought it was generally agreed that images in FPPs are a bad thing. So it seems to me that a Fark post tag on an FPP would be even worse.

Policy on posting links found on Fark/Slashdot/Boingboing?

What's the policy on posting links you found on Fark, Slashdot or BoingBoing? I read through each of these daily, and constantly find links on MeFi that were posted earlier on one of those other three sites. I've refrained from posting info that I found on those other sites because it seems to easy. If you get the info from one of those other sites, shouldn't you do a "via xxx?"

Fark fat-bashing fusion

It's farkish and fatty-bashing in one convenient post!

Seriously, what do we hope to accomplish with this?

MetaFark FireFox plugin?

Fark FireFox plugin - So uhhh... at the risk of calling down all the wrath of hellfire, is there a use for something similar for metafilter?

Any other similar sites?

Metafilter is one of those sites I visit when I've got 2 seconds to rub together, and the rubbing won't intrude too much on my train of thought. I read the posts, and I can dive in when something seems too entertaining to pass up. Other sites that hit me the same way: Boing Boing, Fark, and /.. However, on a particularly loathsome day of work related idiocies, I find that I can exhaust those sites pretty quickly (particularly since I let my TotalFark subscription lapse). Does anyone have other locations that are equal parts whimsy and serious thought?

It used to be frowned upon to post links from other link agregators/filters. Has it changed?

When I used to read MeFi regularly, it was generally accepted that you didn't post anything from "the usual suspects" such as memepool, boing boing, b3ta, etc. because they themselves are weblogs about interesting, offbeat links and most readers read them as well as MeFi. Seeing as this "LSD art" story has been the top item on memepool for a week, I guess this policy has changed. (This is really not meant to sound rude or snide, apologies if it's taken that way)

Speed issues and Fark

So I noticed Metafilter was sloooow today, now I know why.

Can I post links that I found on Fark first?

I visit several sites and it is interesting to note where a story appears first. More than once I've seen an article on Fark a day or two before it shows up here. I'm not complaining, I know not everyone reads Fark, but is there any sort of policy on this? I mean, I've considered posting articles found on Fark but never have simply because there are 50k Fark members, so anything there will show up on many Blogs, and is thus not likely to be new to a majority of MeFians. Am I wrong? I will only post a on the front page if I can find something that I think will be interesting and new. However that may be an impossible task. Yet it can be done.

Fark in Time

Are congratulations in order? Fark just made Time's 50 Best WebSites list. Is it respectability at last? Is it scary? Or just, er, deserved? It's a very conservative, but well assembled list, and Fark certainly stand outs. I say "Bravo!".

Followup: Amnesiac may have been a (gay) porn star

Here's an interesting follow up to this wonderful thread from August. Phillip Stauffen, a man suffering from
amnesia, may have been a gay porn star according to a man in France. Wait, it gets better. Inspector Steven Bone of the Toronto police will have to comb through the evidence... link from *cough* fark.com.

how many MeFites visit fark?

I've noticed in a lot of recent threads a rather severe animosity towards our neighbors over at fark.com. Now obviously FARK is not exactly Mensa grade material, but I've found it is good for laugh and for entertaining bar-brawl style arguments. As someone who visits both MeFi and Fark daily I find they both provide nourishment for the opposing sides of my psyche, MeFi for my thoughtful, intellectual side and Fark for the mook within. Now I can't believe I'm alone in this. I'm just curious, just how many MeFites are also regular(or at least closet) Farkians?

Meme migration from Fark and Memepool

Would some of you old-timers care to talk about the phenomenon of "Meme-Migration"? Seems like lately I've been seeing a bunch of Fark pointers showing up as contribs 6-24hrs later in here; Fark.com appears to be lifting whole blocks of pointers from wiredpress; Memepool links pop up here, there, and everywhere; and on occasion, I see our stuff show up in places 8-48hrs after posting. Has it always been this way, or is this the evility of the much vaunted 'New Wave' of Meta-citizenship? And is it any loss of value? Fark tends to be a pretzels-and-beer local bar VS. Metafilter's MENSA meetings.
