Matt's in the news

Rock-star Matt Haughey is in the news again (with gratuitous photo). This time, in a New York Times article on the Amazon honor system (penned by Ironminds' Andy Wang).

What does a programmer/web designer needs to succeed in the current market?

even before i knew about matt's having been
laid off, i was planning on posting this to metatalk; it now has added applicability, though.

i need a job, but i have no experience in all of this crap i see postings about: websphere, sybase, etc. so here's my question: what do you guys all think that a programmer / web designer needs to succeed in the current market? any good pointers on where to learn or what to read about the junk?

Metafilter would be better if Matt baked everyone a cake

You know, metafilter would be a lot better if Matt baked everyone a cake. I'm sure that would fix all the problems

Props to Matt

Matt, either you are the fastest web gun in the west or someones helping you out. In the last 20 minutes you've removed an advertisers link from the front page and fixed more than one bad link. You be fast! Stealth Like ninja, with a silent blade.

Call for MetaBozoFilter

Matt, you wonderful dear sweet MetaAdministrator, I respectfully submit that the time has come to put the Filter in MetaFilter. Yes, I'm talking about MetaBozoFilters...and I think many, many people would support you in those efforts. Let me know what I can do to help.

New Server Update

The new server is online and working great. Let me know if anyone finds any problems, I'm still adding all the subdomains (metafilter.net, ticketstubs.org - no I didn't forget about that project, fairvue.com, etc.) to server, so they should be back within an hour.

I finally, finally, finally did the preview-before-comment-posting.

I finally, finally, finally did the preview-before-comment-posting.

I should have done this a year ago. Sorry everyone. It should cut down considerably on the spelling/grammar/HTML errors.

Moderating Uploads

Moderation
I've been working on the image upload part of the site, and realized there's no way to limit what type of content gets uploaded.

So I've come to the conclusion that the only way to keep out off-topic scans & stories (like porn or pictures of your cat) is to induce a moderation process. Pretty much anything resembling a story along with an image of something that looks like a ticket stub will get through and posted (guidelines will be posted along with the site so this is clear).

Do you have any objections to such a setup? It would induce a bit of lag, but I don't know if submissions would be that substantial on a day-to-day basis. Also, I'll set it up so I get an email the instant something is submitted and after a simple glance at it, will approve it with a single click.

I know metafilter has always been wide open, but since this site is starting from scratch, I don't think it will affect the growth too much. Do you think it's a good or bad idea? why? Is there possibility that human intervention (i.e. me or some other possible moderators) would spoil the growth? Or would it ensure a quality site?

"How should I format the ticketstub site?" asked Mathowie?

How should the site be arranged and navigated? Personally, I want to see ticket stub stories of all kinds, and not have it bound to just rock concert show reviews. But that begs the question, should the first page you see have a list of entries by last posted? by category? (thinking generally here, like movies, concerts, etc), or list by author?

Since it's all in a database, the list can be any or all of them, depending on what the user wants to see, but I'm still wondering what the default arrangement should be.

What do you think?

It's Alive!

I just made this live, and will be adding the About MetaTalk and MetaTalk archives later this weekend.
