Rhomboid asked this question about a link on the blue which switched from liveleak to YouTube. I'm curious about this as well, and a little ... concerned? Anybody know what's up there?
To people who have done this; why did you create Front Page Post(s) on MetaFilter? The motivations are interesting in themselves, and may also provide positive reasons for people to cross the rubicon from lurker to poster. [more inside]

Back in November of 2007 I came across jonson’s fpp about Geoff Manaugh’s blog post on a photographer named Shaun O’Boyle. I really liked the photographs, and sometimes my job allows me to develop a book. So I did. Kind of about that link. I asked Geoff Manaugh to write the intro to the book, and he said yes, and then he surprisingly cited an unrelated Metafilter comment in the essay he submitted. [more inside]
I'm looking for a sire mentioned on metailter or askmefi long ago. It was a site designed for people looking to build their vocabulary (or people who just like words). It allows a user to keep lists of words on the site and links to definitions. Users can also view lists created by other users. This seems like it would be relatively easy to find but I am striking out. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks!
Why are there two places to click? Why does the "[more inside]" link point to the same place as the "XX comments" link? [more inside]
Idea: the Metafilter link-checker. Take the part of the 'new post' process that double-checks against prior posts, add the part of Mefi that conjures up the related posts, put a link to the feature up on the two lines of links near the logo. [more inside]
Just how "Self"-ish does the self-link ban cover? [more inside]
Several months ago, there was a link posted to a site where people were reviewing other's "urban looks" ie if they were wearing the right color of du-rag for the dress they had on. I've forgotten what the site was called and where it was.. can anyone help? (and should I have posted this to ask.meta instead?)
We should be able to refer to a topic (i.e. whole of thread) using single link - in a way that will allow us to send it via email to other people who are likely to be interested, but don't use metafilter regularly.
