2016 Winter Wishes Gift Drive!

It's the most... wonderful tiiime... of the year. It might not feel like it, but given how 2016 has shaped up, this might actually be it!

Secret Quonsar 2012: Let's Talk About It

It's getting to be time for Secret Quonsar (a gift swap that happens in December among a subset of Mefites. Anyone can join if he or she wants to) again. I'm willing to do it again, having learned a lot from last year's events. If people would rather I not do it, send me an memail (or call me out here!) and if I get a critical mass, I'll step down. I want to talk about the two big issues we had last year. [more inside]

Secret Quonsar: The run-up, the run-down, and general preparation (2010)

It's that time of year again! For the past several years, we've enjoyed swapping gifts in a secret Quonsar swap. I'll be organizing it this year (with the help of Indigo Rain, last year's organizer) My goal is to open signups on November 15, and do the ceremonial giftee random draw on (American) Thanksgiving Day, which is November 25th. Before we open the floodgates to this year's Secret Quonsar, there is one outstanding issue we need to resolve. [more inside]

Holiday gratuities/gratuitous for our beloved admins?

Is there a good place to send jessamyn, pb and cortex gift cards, canned goods or other tokens of gratitude as a thank you for their efforts in keeping MeFi blue in 2007, or would that be considered tacky and inappropriate? [more inside]

where's the gift list?

There was a list in the last few weeks of a bunch of weird places to get christmas gifts. One was the american science supply and the author commented that a similar list was put up last year. Searching metafilter and ask metafilter has proven fruitless. Can someone get me back to the post? thanks.

Greetings Card with Mefi gift

Reindeer filter: when giving someone a gift MetaFilter account, could it be possible to write a few lines to this person, like explaining what is Mefi, or why you give it now (best wishes, joining the fray, season's greetings, etc.)? It would help for performing "Santa's magical dance". Thanks.

Everybody knows somebody named Matt.

Everybody knows somebody named Matt. On this national holiday, how about a $21.95 pledge drive, to purchase a very useful present for the fearless leader?

Thank you, Metafilter community!

Once again, Metafilter has made an impact on my personal life. I came here to say: "Thank you, Metafilter community." I also came here to say: "Who bought the donuts, and why didn't I get any Boston creams?", but felt it was out of the scope of this post. [more inside]
