Rolling out some updated site documentation
We're updating some site documents today to better reflect contemporary MetaFilter. Today's updates include the New User pages that potential new community members move through when signing up, the site's core guidelines page, and a new document discussing common microaggressions and being mindful about the impact of dominant-culture dynamics on a diverse membership. I'll talk in more detail about all that below the fold. [more inside]

I know most folks paid to join MetaFilter to join the conversation on the blue, and I know plenty other folks paid to join just to Ask some questions (or give some answers). This here, though, is the first I've seen of someone joining the site strictly for the discussion in FanFare. Do you know of any earlier instances or did queenofbithynia just make a new entry into our record books?

Author Sean Dixon is now a Grand Poohbah of Metafilter, thanks to this post. Also, a comment in that thread from suburbanbeatnik was quoted in a Globe and Mail article about the incident.
Welcome to town
Do we need a new sub-site for this? Meta-Subject perhaps? Wherein yet another subject of post clues in, joins up, community theoretically gets better. In this case, it's Matt Bird, whose blog Cockeyed Caravan (underrated movies + other stories) got FPP'ed by Iridic.
Heeeyyyy! We got another one!
