The status blog says that new hardware is on the way. Is this putting a financial strain on MetaFilter? Should we take up a collection? [more inside]
As I made some final revisions and edits to my most recent metafilter post, I came across something peculiar. I took a screenshot to explain. When I hovered my mouse over the letter I from the word 'In' at the very start of my post, it offered a link to this page (see the link circled at the bottom of the picture), even though I hadn't actually created a hyperlink to it. If I directly clicked the I, it would take me to the page. If I tried to open it in a new tab, it didn't work. It was still there even after a refresh. Is this happening to anyone else? I'm using Internet Explorer 7, if that helps.
What's the community feeling about MeFites whose sole contributions are AskMe questions? No examples, no finger-pointing...I'm just curious. Do y'all think folks should contribute elsewhere if they're going to reap the benefits of free advice? Or is five bucks five bucks?
Matt, you should put a contribute link on the main menu bar. I mostly use Netscape, and was not paying attention the Amazon disscussion. I only noticed the link on the blue sidebar when I launched Explorer to check out another page, and it defaulted to Metafilter. Might be a more offical place to encourage people to help out more frequently.
