When you edit your profile, you get a nice free-form field for your “Relationship Status”. On your profile, it is listed as “Status”. (All other fields are described with identical language on both pages.)This has driven my pedantic self nuts for ages. Would it be possible to update the “edit profile” page so that it just asks for “Status”? Or, if we want to be wordy, for your “Status (Personal/Relationship/Whatever)”?
Thought there might should be one of these. Ophelia was a cyclone, tempest, a God damned hurricane. And she's bearing down on Ireland. Should be a little weaker, but MeFis, stay safe!
I hate that we have to have another one of these threads. Hurricane Maria has just strengthened to Category 5 and appears to be threatening the Caribbean again, most notably Puerto Rico. Caribbean Meifites, please sound off and I hope you're all okay.
I was initially trying to read the metafilter post There's No Avoiding Google+ and I kept getting a server error: Your Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.31 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/26.0.1410.64 Safari/537.31 [more inside]
Why isn't "status" an open text field, too? [more inside]
We last discussed the edit window last September, after it was tried out in December '08. I was just curious what the current status of the feature was ... has any definite decision been made one way or the other whether it'll be rolled out, and if so, has a date been set?
Bug report: I updated my profile, and it reset my status to Single. [more inside]
Pony Request: Comments on the status blog.

Mefi Mail request: Any chance we could get a couple of minor features regarding the status of our sent and received messages? [more inside]
Ugh. Ok, we should be back now, mostly working. I'm sure there are lots of little things I need to fix and I'll try and get things going over the next couple days.
What's it all for, anyway? Why do we fight? I mean, where's it going? What happens if the whole ball of wax just up and disappears one day? In short, why are we here? I'm speaking of Metafilter, of course! Pony-please: An admin blog detailing site-related news, plans in development, maybe a good call-out now and then. This seems preferable to combing MeTa for stray comments in re the next big thing.
Mefi Status Blog problem: the link on the sidebar takes you to a TypePad error page.
Matt: when you setup status.metafilter.com, wasn't it supposed to be independent of the Mefi server? I don't get how come they were both down at the same time last night.
Was anyone else offline last night between 6 & 11 p.m. PDT besides me?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is MeFi dead? I haven't been getting through all day until just now, and even now I'm only seeing "Index Of" and two HRs.
