Metafilter book

Is someone going to write a book about Metafilter? I would read it, maybe.

History Category on AskMe

Could "history" be added to the list of ask.me categories? I know that theoretically there could be an endless number of these but "history" seems to be a pretty big omission. I put my recent history question in "society & culture", and so did flexxer, while cuke put his in "grab bag" and my wife put hers in "writing & language".

Blocking Posting History?

This Mefi user is blocking their posting history. Should they be allowed to?

Biography based on previous comments

I recall a while back someone posted a sort of biography of another MeFi member using information gleaned from that person's comments and posts. Anyone remember that/have a link?

Dragging poster's previous answers in is not cool

"You also tried to fill a zippo with butane, so I'll reserve judgement." Everyone will likely tell me I've got my panties in a wad as that is the common response here at MeTa, but it'd be great if people didn't attempt to discredit the experience and advice of others on AskMe based on unrelated advice threads. Having to worry someone's going to throw your history of questions in your face later as an indication you are stupid or unable to give advice to others on different topics seems a bit shady. I'm not saying this is an established pattern, just that it'd be helpful to keep in mind.

NewFeatureFilter: Ask MetaFilter search, and all user pages have Ask MetaFilter history, with Ask MeFi removed from MetaTalk history. This is the tip of the iceberg, several major features will be added this week.

Anyone really know the history of MetaFilter?

Anyone really know the history of MetaFilter? (more, as you expected, inside)

comment history bug-a-boos

One's Ask comment history is folded into one's MetaTalk comment history page, which may or may not be a bug, but the background color of the Ask threads are based on how you enter them (green from the Ask front page, grey from users' MetaTalk comment history) which probably is a bug.

Awesome comment from monju_bosatsu!

I feel compelled to publicly applaud and congratulate monju_bosatsu for this superb and interesting essay, elevating an otherwise lackluster post to greatness.

Blogs on Medieval history

Of all the blogs out there, I've been unable to find any relating to a field that I'm very interested in: medieval history (or history at all, for that matter). Anybody else out there share this interest or know of any weblogs like this?

First Metafilter media mention

After virulent flurry of weblog/blog/metablog press coverage, I was trying to remember the first time I saw a major story in the "mainstream" press. All I could recall is New Yorker and New York Times (linked to inside - can't link from here - please excuse east coast bias.) Can any press group claim credit for being first to write about this ?

Comments in posting history not in order

Miguel's comment got me to check my posting history (it's an ugly thing to do, I don't recommend it). Anyway, I found that the comments I posted aren't in any kind of order. (more inside)

Check out how we've evolved since 1999.

If you want to see how MeFi has evolved, link to two years ago on the front page. On October 26, 1999, there were ONLY 5 posts, three of them from mathowie, and one regarding Star Trek! Talk about evolution! BTW, Matt, did you ever get the Kodak digital camera?

MeTa Archives

On an unrelated note, is it possible to see MetaTalk archives?
