What are the unoffical spinoff sites? There's MetaChat - "an informal place for MeFites to touch base and post, discuss and chatter about topics that may not belong on MetaFilter." MonkeyFilter, GameFilter - "A good post to Gamefilter is a link or set of links to something that is related to gaming, gamers, or gaming culture." and MeFightClub - " started way back in ye olde 2007 as an offshoot community of Metafilter (a site where members are collectively known as 'Mefites', and that's how we get to 'Mefight' Club), dedicated to having a safe, groovy place to hang out together and play and talk about the games we love." Are there others?
SF MeFi/MoFi Meetup? the quidnunc kid and I are throwing a meetup ... or meeting a throwup as the case may be. [more inside]
Is there a complete list somewhere of all the 'affiliate' Metafilter sites like Monkeyfilter, Metachat, Sportsfilter, etc? What official relationship do they have with the main site, if any? Is there an official policy on creating your own *filter site? Encouraged, frowned upon?
Whatever happened to monkeyfilter? [more inside]
Although the self-link was fixed by Jessamyn, I doubt that this was posted in the true spirit of AskMe, considering that the OP was booted from MoFi for self-linking ten days ago.
Finally! 1st quasi-annual Blue Ridge meetup in Asheville, NC, Sat. June 5th. We'll begin with a kickball game between Team Metafilter and Team Monkeyfilter and eventually wind up at Jack-of-the-Wood (an Irish pub), with a drag show to top the day off... or whatever the hell we feel like doing.
As proposed in the recent "new members" thread, the lurker-activist MonkeyFilter is now open for the huddled masses.
