Getting Metafilter Inolved In Issues

I really want MetaFilter to do issues. The only one so far was A Day Without Weblogs, which seemed to be a hit with the kids. Other issues don’t have to be quite so emotionally charged. We could do No Words like the fabulous Mod7 suckas. I wait for their updates like a dog in heat. Or, art rock and associated labels.

Link people v Discussion people

I think there's evidence of a real divide among mefi users, between people who like the links and people who like the discussion. And I think a possible solution is right in front of our faces.

Cheap bastards

from todays' dack.com

"What's wrong with this picture? In a few short weeks Andrew Sullivan's weblog has collected almost $3500 in microdonations. By contrast, Metafilter -- a community site where people feel like stakeholders, and presumably have a greater motivation for giving -- has been stuck at about $750 for weeks. Are the musings of a Catholic gay conservative really that popular? Or are Metafilter readers just cheap bastards?"

list with URLs of the various MeFi junkies

Would it be possible to create a member list with URLs of the various MeFi junkies out there? I realize one can just click on the names, but I would love a way to just scroll through a list.

A Rape In Cyberspace

A Rape In Cyberspace. Posted for the attention of our glorious facilitator and factotum, but also for people who've seen MeFi grow over these past months. I've been on LambdaMOO since 1994; I missed the "Bungle Affair", but am good friends with one of the victims; I've seen the throes of an online community struggle to regulate itself and its growth. Not that I'm suggesting the same approach, but it's good deep background.

Has it come time to limit users to starting one thread per day?

With the increase in traffic lately (27 new threads so far today), has it come time to limit users to starting one thread per day?

wank wank wank. ignore and move on.

There seems to be a lot of bickering going on lately, and it's getting worse all the time. Too many people are starting to complain about other peoples posting habits, style whatever you want to call it. I'm Australian and don't care about Americas elections, yet i haven't complained about all the posts, about the election. I choose to ignore them as should other people with any posts they don't like or don't want to talk about.

online community dynamics: cruel v caring

Jorn's proto-rant goes right to the heart of online community dynamics, though I'd offer that it's the intelligent cruel folks who are the most dangerous. I'm tempted to see the caring/cruel split in terms of the political left and right, though I know that's not at all fair. What do you think, is there any wisdom in Jorn's words? And what does all this have to do with James Joyce?

Why Do Designers Not Use Custom 404 Pages?

Okay this isn't really about the weblog format, but more about these sites in general. I am really curious to know as to why most of the web-designers here do not use customized 404 messages? So far I have only seen Glassdog.com, & 37signals.com use their own 404s, saturn.org used to have a custom 404, but it no longer does.
The reason I ask is because in general most webloggers are great web-designers, and I would've figured that they would all be using it. And I think it would be really interesting to see what everyones 404 would look like.

Member Power Rankings

In the past we've discussed how to filter posts or adding "ignore" or "love" tags to certain people. The Raging Bull investment site has an interesting system for ranking users with dollar signs: Member Power Rankings

Should I allow my feelings to be hurt?

So am I being overly sensitive when, after someone reposts something I -- or someone I love -- have already contributed, I allow my feelings to be hurt?

What Dictator/Sitcom Character are you?

Collectively, the Weblog Community has been ga-ga over sites that claim to analyze your personality (the generic personality types, what kind of dog are you, your celebirty mate, sci-fi character types, etc., you know the links).
Well, now it's become popular to use the Dictator/Sitcom Character Guesser in the same manner, by answering all the questions as yourself.
Early results: Ev is Lou Grant, Jason K. is Jack from Threes Company, Brig is Gary Hobson from Early Edition (WHO? The guy who gets tomorrow's newspaper and tries to change it), Bumper Bob is Frohike from X-Files, Jezzicuh is Willow from Buffy, there's even a 'blogger who's one of the Powerpuff Girls.
Who am I? Er... uh, well... On first try, I came up as Hans Moleman from The Simpsons, but after changing my answer to "are you losing hair" to "no" (it was lost years ago), after 43 questions I came out as that wacky neighbor Wilson on Home Improvement.

weblog community formation discussion

has a good discussion of weblog community formation and cross-weblog interaction. There's a good discussion going about the piece, and I asked the author how I should deal with the problems he mentions that MetaFilter my eventually face, and he offers several possible solutions.
