Happy weekend, everyone! For our chat this week, is it too old fashioned to ask the classic "desert island" question? Because I'd love to hear about people's resilient faves. [more inside]
Following on "normal things that make you cringe," evilmomlady has suggested “next can we do things that MOST people find gross but you secretly (or openly) like? I’m thinking of my partner who loves the smell of cow manure spread on the fields (smells like home?!) and wants to put down the car window and inhale deeply while the rest of us in the car are gagging or turning blue from holding our breath as we drive by said field.” [more inside]
Alright, Faves & Flags fans: you rolled your character, you've read the player's manual, and now you're ready to adventure. So sidle in to the local tavern and let's begin!
We've received a large volume of user complaints in the last few months about performance issues with our current version of reality, and so today we're rolling out some fantasy instead to see if that can help take the strain off. Please help us beta test this new initiative with the Faves & Flags Character Sheet Generator. Want more detail? Check out what little remains of the original game manual (or a more legible and screen-reader friendly OCR version here). [more inside]
This is a thread for discussion of November's favorites experiment. [more inside]
Can we vote about this new favorites policy? [more inside]

Is favorites broken? They don't seem to be showing up reliably in the my favorites page, and sometimes the favorites tag on the comment itself isn't incremented. A little more inside.
Any chance we can get a +fave link on the front page for each item, especially on the green? (I'm thinking Digg-style, AJAX based would be very pretty, though potentially too Web 2.0 for the likes of some Mefites...)
