It's been a tough week with tough news. I thought it might be useful to have a MeTa to share soul-replenishing websites and tools we use or go to in order to replenish our inner calm and equilbirium. [more inside]
My little pony request. Can we have the option for our websites to be available to members only? It makes sense, in that we have the visibility option for members/everyone for Twitter/FB/other social media, can we just add website as a field for that as well? [more inside]
Is there anyway we can add Rotten Tomatoes to the list of social apps on our profiles?
As much as I love MetaFilter, I hate its color scheme / stylesheet! (Sorry!) I find it hard to read. I want to permanently disable the css so that every time I visit the site I only see the basic html. I am using Firefox. [more inside]
Didn't there used to be a webpage that showed you all the Mefites' social-networking-website accounts that we have listed in their profiles? Or something? [more inside]
I was hoping you could help me find a specific recent Job / Career Search MeFi question. One of the answers was a list of several job search sites. [more inside]
I'm looking for a member's homepage that was a collection of weird and interesting facts. Can anyone point me in the right direction? [more inside]
Bug report: My profile won't let me delete my homepage URL. Changing the field to blank has no effect. The best I can do is make homepage: none
Right now there are 35,070 members in MetaFilter. Many members have their own unique personal sites. Which are your favorite less-known ones?
It would be nice if the question Are there any other community weblogs where you regularly participate? could be added to the standard welcome questionnaire ("What's the deal with your nickname? When did you first start using the Internet?" etc.) [More inside.]
seethru.co.uk is closing down. i never really liked it anyway but would check their weblog now and then for some lame online quizzes. however their random url generator and websites no-one has thought of yet were pretty good.
We got ourselves a website: alt.guitar.bass doesn't have any posting guidelines, or a benevolent dictator, or a separate site to bitch about what the proles are doing. Yet it's helpful, friendly (to the point where people notice), and self-regulating. It's also expanding to a website (above) and a binaries newsgroup for pictures and mp3. Despite having long, abusive flamewars, it's a solid community.
We can search for specific text, but is it possible to expand the search capability to include sites linked to? (Search for any links to www.whatadeal.org/foo/ for example.) This would help in determining if something is a repeated link or not.
