A few great posts and comments this week on AskMefi

I want to point out a few good threads on AskMeFi this week: one on giving children allowance/chores, one on punishing others, and a great answer on suicide methods in the 1930s. [more inside]

Nice work, folks.

A trend I like: Seems like lately there have been more posts in the blue that contain multiple links from very diverse sources. This in comparison to the ever-swelling tide of SLYT posts, posts linking to a blog, etc. (Though "Camel vs. Bin" is beyond criticism.) Not that there's anything wrong with SLYT's in and of themselves, and I actually dislike snarky "not best of the Web" responses. Just felt like offering a little pat on MeFi's collective back. I wonder if more Mefites are unemployed and therefore have more time to put together complex FPP's?

Just want to say . . .

thanks to the mefi community for a good day of links . . . where else can I shoot the s- about gay marriage, aerodynamics, fluid simulations, Safari & the iPhone, and someone slagging on liberals, all on one page :)

Good reason to have "favorites" function

This is a great example of why the 'favorites' function rocks.

Can a system be devised for users who've appreciated a post to click on an "I enjoyed this" button?

A lot of excellent, original posts, like this one from homunculus, get zero comments because users (I'm guessing) feel it's lame just to say "Thank you"; "Good post" or something equally trite, though sincere. My feeling is that outsiders, when they see 0 or 1 comment, erroneously judge that it reflects on the post and pass on. Which is a great pity.

Can't a simple system be devised whereby those users who've appreciated a post click on a "I enjoyed this" or "(this is good)" button, the result appearing much as the trackbacks do now?

What constitutes a good post?

What constitutes a good post? Although there is no simple answer, perhaps we can get a general idea. Respond with a link to a post or thread that you think is good, and (briefly) explain why you think it is good. This thread can then serve as a database of good posts (and without needing any new code!) for future reference.

are we living through a mefi golden age?

stavros drew some heat for his call to arms for the improvement of metafilter, but we've seen a number of truly superior links posted since the new server went online. are we living through a mefi golden age?
