Anonymous Bursts

Why do anonymous posts seem to come in bursts on AskMeFi? It seems that more often than not, 3 or 4 anonymous questions pop up in a row (for instance: today 1, 2, 3) Do anonymous questions sit in an approval queue before being posted to the main site, or is this phenomena purely coincidental?

Anonymous Questions on AskMe

I'm looking for some insight into the standards for screening anonymous questions on AskMeta. [MI]

Anonymous Posting Returns

Anon posting is back on for Ask Metafilter, including all the extended areas and categories and tags and whatnot. I think I tested everything out and it worked, but let me know if you find any bugs, as I'm sure I forgot one.

Anonymous questions are gone?

Am I missing something, or did the anonymous-question feature on ask metafilter disappear? When? Why? I can't find any explanation on metatalk.

Pony Request: Anonymous answers

This post led me to wonder: would anonymous answers be a useful pony to add to Ask MeFi? [MI]

Patterns in AskMe thread numbers

Just noticing a quirk: The thread IDs of the anonymous AskMe posts seem to reflect the number that would be assigned to them had they been instantly posted at the time of submission. The three latest threads on AskMe are 14998,15006,15016 (all Anon threads) followed by normal threads 15032, 15031...etc.

What's up with the date headers on AskMe?

Right now I see three "January 23" headings in AskMe, atop three "January 22" headings. Prior days display just fine. What's the story, Morning Glory?

Self-Link Callout

I know someone has posted a self-link as a FPP and hasn't identified it as such (he has also done it in comments). I think it is because he wants to keep his anonymity. I don't want to out him, but at the same time I think it isn't right to post a link to a site that is your own (esp. without disclosure). Should I just email him to let him know I know? Should I email Matt directly about it? Thoughts on how best to handle?

Anonymous Questions

WTF, Matt? Why are fingernail clipping, hypnosis, and theft worthy of being posted anonymously?

Unposted Anonymous AskMes on contacts page

I, like many people, have added Anonymous AskMetaFilter as a contact, due to his/her interesting, thought-provoking, often sex-related questions and complete self-restraint when it comes to making snarky comments.

However, I noticed a weird phenomenon. On my contacts page, I see several anonymous questions that link to deleted/nonexistant posts. These do not show up in "Anonymous AskMeFi"'s posting history, and I never saw them on the AskMe page. Did they ever appear on the main page? Is there a reason they are still visible from my contacts page?

Anonymous askme: what percentage fail to get posted?

Since 12 October 2004, when the AnonAskMe feature was created, there have been 37 questions asked anonymously. Matt, how many, if any, questions have you passed over and not posted? Any reason why?

(I'm not critiquing the decision to not post the question, just trying to get a complete picture on how people are using the feature.)

anonymous askme has no way to follow up

The first question in this anonymous AskMe post made me realize that there is no way for anyone posting anonymously to provide information beyond the initial query.

Ask Metafilter RSS feed is displaying anonymous questions before they are approved

The Ask Metafilter RSS feed seems to be displaying anonymous questions before they are approved to be displayed on the website itself. (Nobody panic, though; it does not reveal the identity of the person posing the question.)

The new anonymous questions can easily make Ask Metafilter NSFW.

The new anonymous questions can easily make Ask Metafilter NSFW. For example, this question is pretty tame, but I wouldn't want it on my screen for others to read. Is there any solution to this?

anonymous has some serious relationship problems

Once I ran to you, I ranNow I'll run from youThis tainted love you've given
75% of this "anonymous" guy's output is love-related. I keep reading that we suck at politics, we suck at religion, we suck at (insert your favorite pet peeve here). I dare to suggest that, no disrespect intended, we suck at giving love advice (assuming that giving useful love advice is actually possible, which I doubt). Is this just a coincidence, or we'll use the anonymous feature mainly to turn AskMeFi into Mr/Mrs LonelyheartsFilter/BrokenheartsFilter?

Ask Me Anoymous

With all the recent talk of Anonymous Questions on AskMe, I thought I'd learn me some php, and create a supplementary website where people can pose anonymous questions to be asked on AskMe by the more brazen metafilter members. I guess that this falls under the "Don't self link" rule, so I hope you'll forgive the intrusion.

will there ever be an anonymous way to ask questions?

Stet's question reminds me: will there ever be an anonymous way to ask questions? I'm sure there are lots of people out there with things to ask that they don't want brought up when they're running for office...

AskMe Anonymizer

I'd greatly enjoy an anonymous feature on Ask Metafilter. Just last week I was going to ask for tips on buying an engagement ring, but worried the Google Indexing of the question might result in the surprise being ruined for my (now) fiancée. I'd be ok with it not *really* being anonymous (ie, for tracking down abusers, the data would still be stored, just not displayed).

Anonymous post or comment pony

Secret pony request. I was wondering if it could be made possible to obsfucate a username in AskMetafilter? There have been times, and I imagine I'm not the only one, that I would have liked to post a question anonymously. This could be for a variety of reasons, ranging from the ethical to the legal, but I have lots of questions that I may not want linked to my user page forever.

Anonymous AskMe

I have a question I think I want to Ask Metafilter, but I want to do it anonymously. (How) should I do this?

How about allowing anonymous questions on AskMe?

Posting something in Blue or here should have a definite link to a persona set up here. But a question? There are some questions we want asked but not have anyone know we asked them. What about an anonymous possibility?

Post Anonymously

A 'post anonymously' option. Matt could still see who posted it, and perhaps remove the option for those who abuse it.

There's a need when you want to respond about your company, or your family, or your health; without the consequences of detail.
