Just a quick heads up: we've had a little trouble with some of our email list stuff recently; some contact form messages haven't gotten through in the last 2-3 days. Should be rectified soon, and now that we're aware we can get at the messages server-side so we can respond promptly and catch up on the backlog, but if you were getting radio silence over the weekend that's what's been up. Sorry about that!
Occasionally people add me as a contact. Why do they do this? [more inside]
We're adding a short blurb and checkbox to the MetaTalk New Post form that reminds people the Contact Form is an option. [more inside]
This is just a PSA to remind you that we use the email you have attached to your account to answer contact emails from you (unless you change it manually in the email field on the contact page), and sometimes to get in touch with you if there is a problem with a post or comment, so please make sure that it is a working address. You can change or update your email in your profile preferences under "Contact Preferences," as well as choose whether you want it to be visible to other users, and if you want Mefi mail forwarded to your email.

A tiny Quonsmas pony for all! Could we get some sort of "Quonsed" option for the relationships list when we're adding contacts? [more inside]
Can't get to the blue, can't get to contact form. [more inside]
When adding a contact, the reasons you can give are all positive. But those aren't the only reasons you can have for wanting their posts on your sidebar. [more inside]
Social Media, old skool style [more inside]
Curious about the weird this-is-so-not-Metafilter-related mail we get at the contact form? Then you might enjoy Thank You For Contacting Metafilter, aka Shit My Contact Form Says, a tumblr we've put together in the last few days. [more inside]
When I use the Contact form, the content of my message vanishes in a black hole at the center of a nearby galaxy. Would it be possible to forward a copy to my Sent Mail box in MefiMail?
My front page contact sidebar is no longer showing posts by contacts that have received the threshold of 12+ favorites, plus other odd behavior. [more inside]
I'm intrigued re: Gift/UserAccounts. Is there a way/was there a way, to know which accounts are 'gift accounts'? [more inside]
Never look a gift friend in the mouth [more inside]
Lacking confidence, I will not call this a pony. It's just a suggestion: how about setting that optionally removes moderators from the "contact activity" sidebar? I adore jessamyn, and many of her answers deserve to be favorites/best answers, but due to her high-profile here, my list has become a digest of jessamyn's activity, which crowds out all my other contacts. (This only affects people who have moderators as contacts.)
I can see the favorites this comment has, and it shows up in my side bar because it was made by a contact, but the comment has been deleted.
Pony request: Can we have contact activity on the green? [more inside]
the new contacts page is leaving me wanting... [more inside]
Here is an opportunity to mock stupidity! I imagine this is crystal clear to most, but I'm clueless, which probably means leave it alone. But what, in edit mode, do "MefiQuote preferences" and "Contact contribution display preferences" mean and how does one utilize them? I just ate a bowl of dicks, so perhaps you can suggest something to drink instead?
Having problem with the contact form. Don't know if admins got my message. [more inside]
Any way we can get an input box on the 'add as contact' page so that we can enter something that only we can see (on our own profile page) as to why we're adding someone as a contact? I find the provided options useless and I'd like to leave myself a note as to why I've added someone. Often, I'd even like to "link" them to a specific comment/post.
Littletinyponyfilter: could it be possible to have the sidebar links on the front page for contact activity work slightly differently? [more inside]
1. So I add a contact for the sake of entertainment perhaps. 2. Their account is then disabled. 3. I can't get rid of them from my contact list? Argh.
Tiny Contacts Pony! [more inside]
The recent contact activity on the sidebar is shit hot. [more inside]
I used IBM's Many Eyes data visualization site [discussed] to create a network map of my MetaFilter contacts and my contacts' contacts. It got to be pretty big, so I thought I'd post it here.
Could people please put their email addresses or some other contact method in their profile? Especially if you post a question? Please? There's times when I'd like to answer an AskMe question or MeFi thread that got deleted as chatfilter, (UbuRoivas, I'm looking at you!) but can't.
When viewing a contact, you might see that they have "1 AskMe Question" and "3 AskMe Answers". But if you click on the linked "3" for the Answers, you will see 1 question and 2 answers listed. It appears that we're counting the question as an answer, also.
Follow-up to this thread on contacting my father for the first time. With the help of my real-world friends and the great advice at AskMe, I went into this with eyes-wide-open.
I Love You All ! Will You Marry Me ?
Wouldn't it be neat if you could link to a specific comment or post when you were adding someone as a contact. Perhaps the post/comment was a moment of infatuation or a particularly representative post. This would allow us to track and share exactly why we get that warm fuzzy feeling (or itchy, burn-y feeling) when we see certain usernames. What do you think?
It was discussed in the Philly meetup thread, but this is the official thread complaining about the fact that the "crush" contact option doesn't seem to work.
Okay - I need some help. There is a member here who I would like to contact privately to ask a question without derailing a blue thread. Unfortunately, this member has not provided an email address on their user page. [more inside...]
