I used to love looking at meetup photos and putting faces with names, but it doesn't seem like anyone posts them anymore. Is this because people are more worried about privacy, or is it because Flickr is completely terrible now, or a combination? Or is it just because pictures are so easy/ubiquitous that no one really takes them anymore? I don't know what the answer is (and I won't be contributing because I am WAY too shy to ever go to a meetup) but I would love it if people got into the habit again. Would allowing photos in IRL posts be a pony too far?
It's taken a while, but Issue#8 of MeFi Mag has finally arrived! [more inside]
There was a Metafilter member who took really nice pictures of Mefites at meetups. I think this was around 10th anniversary time. He was Mefi-Famous for awhile and folks may have been even planning meetups around his travels. I also remember a comment from him where he talked about some of his techniques. Anyone remember who this is? [more inside]
One of the reasons I joined MeFi was because I was reliably informed there would be kitty pictures. I have now seen posts regarding cats WITHOUT photos of said cats! This shit must cease! I need kitty photos! PS I pride myself on being both vague and nonsensical so feel free to delete if need be.
It's Friday!...which means that over on Metachat, we continue the Friday tradition of posting photos by members on a given theme (this week, Fences; other recent marvels, Glow, Photobooth, Reflections, Old/New. If you haven't been over to MetaChat in a while, or ever, Photo Friday is a nice place to start with a post or a comment - and a relaxing way to wind down the work week with a few moments of Zen.

The no-attribution discussion is derailing this thread on famous photographs. Let's have it here instead. [more inside]

People who were interested in the original thread may enjoy seeing some big grins on kids' faces courtesy of baby_balrog's playground ministry; the playgrounds are evidently up.
There appears to be a bug on the recent Flickr photos page. I've seen this bug regularly, though not every day. Today's example is a repeated picture by bibliowench on Jun 9th, 2008 and bevedog on Jun 9th, 2008. Both are displayed as "Omeka stickers", both link to the same external Flickr page. I am running firefox on macos. (I don't read MetaTalk much, so I apologize if this is a known bug. I did do a quick search for a posting about the same topic.)
AskMefi Followup: I asked you guys for tips in Seoul, and the response was very helpful, I'm still here for 5 more days, but here are pictures of the awesome places you led me to!

Seattle meetup pics. y2Karl and Black8 regaled us with stories of Seattle history and I learned that if you mention a certain MeFite's name at the Eastlake Zoo, you *might* get a free pitcher.
Would you please post your meetup pics in the original thread instead of creating new ones? They don't show up in the meetup sidebar. [more inside]

Hastings Meetup pics. My camera battery died on Saturday afternoon, so these are from Friday night and Saturday morning. Many more photos were taken by other attendees. A good time was had by all.
Go to this link and check out who the photo and caption are by.
It is afternoon in Portland, Oregon. Where are the pictures from last night's big 8th anniversary meetup? Lynsey and da shiv and maybe others had cameras there. Skip the photoshopping and just post the pictures, please.
Amsterdam meetup pictures. Not so many people (and jouke didn't really want to have his picture taken) but a huge lot of beer (not pictured).

LA Meetup photos: Only four turned out for me (I do have a fair number of drunkish blurred shots of my feet). I hear that there were more, and even voice recordings. If you've got the missing photos, please post inside!
The Blue at The Red: Pictures of the June 22nd, 2007 Santa Cruz, CA Meetup! (original thread's closed...)
Can the meetup listings in the sidebar be kept up for a few days afterwards so we can more easily find the pictures which were taken? Or should there be a separate category for this?
