From the mists of time....

Let's respect MeFi's past, while looking to chart its future. I've scanned through the archives and pulled up some of the more important threads in my time on MeFi, and I encourage you to do the same.

Second Anniversary of the First (Extant) Post

I know the anniversary of the domain name has come and gone, but did you know that the oldest extant post to Metafilter will have its second birthday on Saturday? Planning anything special?

Opening up registration again?

After/Upon the deluge. I feel somewhat self-conscious writing this since I only discovered Mefi in March. Nonetheless, I wonder if Matt has considered how to re-open Metafilter to new members. At this point, the pent-up demand is likely quite large, which could cause a kind of chaos. So I would suggest the when the gate re-opens, it be done in phases: maybe a certain number of posters per-day or per-week for a certain number of weeks; it's how we would do things back in Paramus. Just a thought.

Kaycee unveiled

Let us take a moment and commend the Metafilter community on its Kaycee discussions. Despite the occasionally biting commentary, this thread spawned one of the most intense, fascinating, and exciting community discussions I've ever read (and that dates back to BBSes in 1987). The unstoppable curiosity of this site's members, coupled with a heavy moral and emotional burden, made for an incredible read. I have never been to Kaycee's site and I still spent my entire morning plowing through the 600-plus comments related to the incident.

Congratulations to MetaFilter on a fantastic thread. This should, I hope, quell some of those "it's too big, too boring, too typical" comments for a while.

People shouldn't snipe in the Kaycee Nicole obit thread.

I'd like to see a squelch button so that rudeness like this and this/this don't have to be viewd by everyone.

And for those of you who snipe in basically amounted to someone's wake... I hope you're embarrased enough that you never come back to MeFi. What kind of community can we be when two people can't even keep their mouths shut when we're basically holding a funeral?

Adding usernumbers to profile page suggestion

Minor suggestion: how about adding the member number to the profile page, or informing members about how to find it?

I know it seems minor, but I never knew where to find that info. And with the member numbers starting to come up in the discussions, I started to wonder: "Where do I fall into this ranking? Am I more of a newbie or an old-school vet?"

It took me several minutes of poking around MetaTalk (lurking for the answer before I post the question, y'know) before I figured out how it's done.

(Note to new folks: mouseover the link to your profile page, and it will appear in the link shown in the status bar.)

And, by the way, I'm #481 -- which I think qualifies me to say I was into MetaFilter back when it was cool. :)

So today on the train into work, I came up with an idea.

So today on the train into work, I came up with an idea. Thoughts? Feedback? Would you write for such a thing if asked?

So many comments

200 posts in 8 hours (150 in the first 3)? My, how time flies when you're having fun.

Is this the future of MeFi? An explosion of comments so overwhelming conversation is useless?

Pony: dates and times in post citations

I might just be, you know, a little slow, but more than once in recent days I have been cruising the MeFi front page and gotten lost, and had to scroll up (and up and up) to find the date header... perhaps it will soon be time to consider putting dates along with the times in the "posted by" footer on the front page.

November Stats

I hope this doesn't come off as pompous or anything, I just wanted to show everyone the metafilter stats for November. A few things to note: the times are in GMT, so they're 8 hours behind the real time (there isn't a 9am lull in requests, that's actually a 1am lull, PST). I started keeping track of bytes transferred about half way through the month, so the data transfers are off. 330,000 page views is pretty wacky though. As usual, the search requests are mostly disturbing. I don't want to meet most of the people doing those searches.

New Server Update

The new server is online and working great. Let me know if anyone finds any problems, I'm still adding all the subdomains (metafilter.net, ticketstubs.org - no I didn't forget about that project, fairvue.com, etc.) to server, so they should be back within an hour.

MeTa Archives

On an unrelated note, is it possible to see MetaTalk archives?

First Ever Meetup Request

Hi, just curious if anyone is interested in having a metafilter user get together... kind of like what Cam of Camworld.com did... Post your interest here... Since metafilter is based in LA and so am I, I am assuming it would be in the LA area...
