You know, just in case I want to write something for the Fringe Festival...

I'm looking for a comment that I just can't find and want to read again. It detailed a version of Sex In The City as performed as a Beckett-like Black Box stage production. The women wailed a chorus of " THE SHOES" someone said " I fear I am not fecund". I have tried every permutation I could think of with no success. I'm 99% sure I read it here.

For the millionth time, you can't have your pony!

The good news: MetaTalk has over 1,000,000 comments as of today. The bad news: the millionth comment was apparently deleted.

Nascent projects

I'm in the very early stages of developing a web app. Its not close to being ready for MeFi projects, imo, but I'd love to get some MeFite feedback on what I have so far! What is the proper channel for something like this?

What makes a good community manager?

"Yeah, yeah. Having a section of the site dedicated to talking about the site I originally designed that just to keep people from jabbering about like fonts that they didn’t like in the middle of a thread about some news event, and just being like shut up, don’t do that; having a place dedicated has been great because then people can talk openly about lots of things."
The July 1st SitePoint podcast is a panel discussion on "...the profession of Online Community, how it’s grown in importance and profile, and what it means to today’s Web," conducted by Patrick O'Keefe, founder of the iFroggy Network: with Venessa Paech, Lead Community Manager of Community Engine; Sarah Hawk, Community Manager of SitePoint; and our own intrepid mathowie.

Conflict Free?

There is no way of knowing whether or not the original poster of this question has any idea that many so-called "conflict free" diamonds are anything but or even if it matters to him. But in case he does care and has been convinced that conflict free diamond certification means anything (like many people in the thread seem to have been), how is the information not pertinent to his question? Further, why is it okay for people to tell the poster to buy conflict free diamonds, but it's not okay to point out how difficult this is? [more inside]

Pinning/sidebarring mod posts?

Request: could important posts about the site be pinned to the top of MeTa for a little while? Or sidebarred? Or something? They tend to get lost in the shuffle, and then you have those "Hey, whatever happened to [whatever]?" posts that get closed. [more inside]

Seeking help with my research of online communities

I am writing a dissertation about online communities, and MetaFilter will serve as the primary focus of my research. I need your help to better understand why MetaFilter functions better than so many other online communities. Can you spare 15-30 minutes to complete a short survey to improve our understanding of online communities? [more inside]

Where to put MeFi post updates? Discuss

MetaFilter post updates that cannot be posted to the original thread should be posted to MetaFilter and abide by the New Post guidelines. MetaFilter post updates should not be posted to MetaTalk. MetaTalk...it's for site policy discussions, bug reports, and feature requests. [more inside]

Easy Trips Down Memory Lane

On the front page sidebar, it says "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago"—links to Metafilter, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years ago. Could we please have this feature in Metatalk?

Halfway to Our First Million on MetaTalk

Congratulations to tkolar on posting MetaTalk's 500,000th comment! Imagine, a half million assorted snarks, whines, callouts, flameouts, bugfixes, meetup setups, not to mention all the pony requests granted or rejected, the longboat voyages, the real-life detective stories and serious discussion of male and female body parts. What a long Meta trip it's been. [more inside]

I can't be the only one?

I like the new /random in the sidebar, but all I use it for is to try and find good flameouts on the grey. Could there be a /flame, so I can have something to do on a rainy day?

Shut down all the trash compactors on the detention level!

What used to be a forum for bugs, feature requests, and the occasional callout for really egregiously bad behavior has devolved into a whinefest for anyone with a keyboard and a grudge. YOU ALL NEED TO STEP AWAY. Can we shut down MetaTalk for a week? I'm completely serious. The contact form is still there for emergencies.

Closed?

closed closed closed closed closed closed closed What is the deal with every fifth or so MetaTalk thread being closed? Yes, some get messy, but that is where issues get worked out. The petulant pres closes off discussion because he can't handle it. Why does MetaTalk all of a sudden close all these threads? MetaTalk can handle it.

Take the Shame out of Shameless Self-Promotion on Metatalk.

We need to come up with a solution so that people who post their gigs don't have to pretend they're "Metafilter Gatherings" or "Metafilter Related," and so that they don't get accused of shameless self-promotion or whoring themselves on Metatalk when they post messages such as this or this. They don't quite fit into Projects, but they don't quite belong in any of the categories here.

MetaTalk comment redirect

When I'm looking at a user's page and click the timestamp of one of their MetaTalk comments, the link redirects to the original post instead of the user's specific comment. Does this happen to anyone else?

Why can't I add a hyperlink in MeTa?

In trying to flag this post, http://ask.metafilter.com/57197/Dont-Worry-Be-Happy as the worst sort of existential Chatfilter/guideline buster, I realized there isn't a 'link' feature in MetaTalk. And I am an HTML cretin. I expect this is intentional, or I'm missing something obvious.
