Blue posts for deep sea green posts should link to deep sea green posts

On August 27, avoision made a self-post on the deep sea green about his Villanelle Bot.
On August 30, oakroom made a post about the Vinalle Bot on the blue, but didn’t go through projects when posting the link. Because of this, there’s no “official” indication that the two are linked: no highlighting on Projects, no little link to the project at the end of the FPP.
I think if a mod discovers the link post-facto or if a mefite tells the mod about the link, they should add these formal connections. It seems like good style, and a good way to increase attention for community members doing cool things. [more inside]

It's an AskMe Miracle

The end result of this question just needs to be preserved as a "wonderful AskMe moment." Crushing problem solved in a way neither of us would have considered if it hadn't been for the suggestion in AskMe. Now we know, and the other credit-card-ignorant will know too when they search!

Will you take a credit card?

I see MeFi still only accepts PayPal. I was going to buy a friend an account tonight, but I stopped using PayPal a long time ago because I think they're pretty hideous and unethical. Will you ever accept credit cards, Matt? Is there not enough demand to make it worthwhile?

Credit for enlightenment

Athanasius Kircher has joined metafilter (hooray!). But wait...He is not here to enlighten us, but rather to demand that jonson give them credit for his Blue Fugate post.

Request that mods sign off on who deleted posts

When posts are deleted and mentioned in MeTa we see something like: "This post was deleted for the following reason: This is way too open-ended. Try again next week with something specific and more focused."

Sometimes it's obviously Matt doing the deleting and sometimes obviously Jess, but as in this example I can't tell and it drives me nuts! Could you guys initial off on these things or something? (It doesn't matter but drives me nuts filter.)

Is listing your source really that important?

Why is Miguel picking on Soon when only a small % of posts even say where the link is from? Why is that even important? Its usually an endless chain of I got it from this webpage, they got it from another webpage, that webpage was written by the brother of the webmaster, the webmaster sent a carrier pigeon to his brother about his new site, etc.

Webloggers don't own links, webmasters do.
