Are there any MetaFilter meetups via Zoom or other such medium?

I would like to meet up with some faces/voices. If not, does anyone know of anything similar elsewhere?

Don't Say We Did not Warn You

MeFiChi (TINCC*) will be celebrating the (totally not arbitrarily-designated) 10th Anniversary of our First Wednesdays at the Goat and (late lamented) Frog on the first Wednesday of October 2018. Please consider this your Save the Date. There will be an IRL as we get closer, but we know (oh how we know!) calendars are hard and we thought a head's up for those who need it might be a good idea.

Total Eclipse of the MetaFilter: US August 2017 edition

A catch-all Meta for MeFites to organise, enquire, wail about accommodation prices and relate their experiences about the August 21st 2017 solar eclipse which crosses the continental USA (total eclipse in 14 states, partial eclipse others and in three other continents). Please don't look at the sun directly or with dodgy glasses, but you can use your smartphone - though just don't miss it. Exclusive, traffic will be nuts, and some will do the Carbondale double. Disclaimer: other eclipses are available for other dates and countries. Obligatory link. [more inside]

Any interest in a MeFi day of service or volunteering?

Basically, I think it's rad that the folks in Chicago are cooking brunch for families at the Ronald McDonald House and think it'd be cool if other folks did similar things in their own cities, perhaps on one designated day. Just a thought, would like to know if that's been suggested before.

Pony request: IRL Regional Meetup tools

At a recent MeFi regional campout, there was some discussion about the need for the ability to post campouts that can somehow be regional. As in, it would have been helpful for this campout to be announced to IRL-interested folks who live in Portland, Seattle, and areas of eastern WA and OR, people who might not have their IRL radius set very wide because they mostly want to do local meets, but a big annual thing like this might be of interest even if it involves travel.

A sort-of-wake for Terry Pratchett

I would like to arrange a meetup in the memory of Terry Pratchett. It was great going through his obit thread the other day. Terry's books influenced me a lot and helped me think about so many things in so many new ways. And I think, it would be a good idea to get together to give Terry a hearty, joyous send off. We could all come togather, assume names from list of characters from his writings, may be even dress like some of them and discuss, drink and celebrate life, his and our own. [more inside]

Better late than never

How about notifications of proposed meetups?

I have my profile set to receive notifications of IRL meetups within 100 miles, but I would also like to get notified about proposed meetups within the same distance. Who knows, maybe adding one more person can shift it from "proposed" to "let's do this thing."

What happened to Camp Mefi?

Awhile back there were murmurings about a metafilter-oriented camp/retreat. Did anything happen after the survey? Now that me and mr. desjardins have an RV, we're itching to go! (Also, we live at a campground, hint hint.)

Beans! Beans! Cans of beans!

I would like to take this time to note that we had our (first?) NOVA meetup and it was a wonderful success! While the original players were unknown, we navigated our way forward by waving cans of beans at any soul who looked a little too bewildered and lost. By way of perseverance and long arms it worked, and we had a lovely time, such that we hope to bring you more stories of such heroics in the coming future. As such, I present to you: The can(s) of beans. [more inside]

Reddit trivia rematch

Good morning westerners! In just over four hours, our Trivial Special Forces will reassemble in central London to do battle with our arch-nemeses, Reddit, in a re-match after we mopped the floor with them last time. Current IRL thread here. Any MeFites in London are encouraged to come along and participate and/or cheer us on. Live updates in this thread will follow I'm sure, though we will go dark during the quiz. Tally-ho! [more inside]

Reddit vs Metafilter - London Oct 10th

Reddit has discovered that the London Mefites are going to a pub quiz at the Hat and Tun on 10th Oct, and are proposing to 'hand their asses to them', along with alien signs, hats, vuvuzelas, etc. The gauntlet has been thrown, Mefites, and we must respond with overwhelming pancakes. [more inside]
