Should we launch a Kickstarter for Ahmed Mohamed?

Many folks are distressed over the way the school administration and police in Irving, TX reacted when a 14-year-old student of Sudanese Muslim parentage brought a homemade clock to school, and wish there was something they could do about it. How about a Kickstarter to collect a STEM college fund for Ahmed? [more inside]

How does metafilter fare with kickstarter?

Have you started a kickstarter and informed the Mefi community about it? Did they help or hinder the process? Or have you been a loyal Mefi and supported some of the kickstarters? What was your experience like? [more inside]

Check Yes to confirm that this Kickstarter campaign is over

Because not enough people read the FAQ, posts are made about live online fundraising projects from time to time. I thought it could it be beneficial to have an additional check box appear when a Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other major fundraising sites are linked in a front page post, asking the poster to confirm that the fundraising campaign is over.

Kickstarter post poison!

Is there any point recasting this post about the absurdly successful Order of the Stick reprint Kickstarter, or is it never going to fit the front page? [more inside]

nothing ventured, nothing gained

What makes one post that features a Kickstarter link get axed, and another one stays? Is it the number of links supporting it, or is it a judgement call based on the coolness of the project? Is the front page of Metafilter the appropriate place to shill for money?

61: Know Your Moderators II: Restless Boogaloo

It's episode 61 of the podcast! We chat with new weekend moderator restless_nomad for twenty minutes or so up front, about moderation and video games and green vegetables; and then we ramble on for about a normal podcast's worth of chatter after that, so this comes in at a beefy 90 minutes or so.

Calling all Kickstarter Projects

Kickstarter recently started a "Curated Pages" feature where organizations and sites can show off member projects (here's the Creative Commons one for an example). They recently put me in charge of a "MetaFilter" curated projects page and I know I've seen dozens of mefites fund projects on Kickstarter in the past, but if anyone is currently running a project there, let me know and I'll add you to our page and share the URL when we have a few projects listed.

Kickstarting in the blue

Did I miss something? Kickstarter solicitations are not approved by No. 1 in Projects, but posting someone else's Kickstarter idea in the blue is OK? Even the protagonist of the project seems to be surprised. [more inside]

Could there be a Project Help sub-sub-site? I envision something akin to Music Talk where folks can post their Kickstarter campaigns, requests for collaboration, brainstorm sessions, etc. [more inside]
