Relationship Hacks 2012? (i.e. Okay to make a sequel?)

The question located at http://ask.metafilter.com/137148/What-clever-relationship-hacks-have-you-come-up-with is one of the most favorited posts of all time, created in 2009. I've found some of the advice in there immensely useful in my own relationships and have referred back to it often. [more inside]

What is good deleted post etiquette?

As a follow up question to this MeTa, isn't it kind of bad form for another user to re-post a deleted FPP before the original poster has a chance to revise and, uh, re-post? [more inside]

Are we done with "Portal 2"?

Would a post-release FPP about "Portal 2" be appropriate, or should discussions of the game be kept confined to the existing thread about the prerelease ARG? [more inside]

Reposting a Metafilter post

I'm wondering about re-posting something from Metafilter on my site, The Rumpus. If someone posts something that's say, 2 paragraphs, can I copy and paste the first paragraph in quotes. Then I would give full credit to the poster, metafilter, and link to the original post. I'm imagining there is actually a document on this site somewhere detailing the answer to this question, but I haven't been able to find it. We often link to things we find on Metafilter with a "via." But I'm talking about quoting text. Thanks!

"Second Editions"

I would like to know what people's thoughts are on the idea of allowing Metafilter posters to make a "second edition" of a post after a certain amount of time has passed (a week?, a year?). [more inside]

music videos on mefimusic?

I've recently made a video for a song which I'd previously posted on mefimusic. The video includes a remastered version of the original song plus a reprise. Would it be kosher to post this to mefimusic, using the reprise as the uploaded mp3? [more inside]

If you asked a question on AskMe a while ago and got not-so-good* answers, would it be bad form to ask the same question again? Should it be disguised so as to not seem to be the same question? * to put it politely.

A Repost Question Button request.

I'd love to see a button (part of the 'best answer list') in an ask.mefi question that allowed (after say 7 or so days) a question to be 'relisted.' Maybe the 'cost' should be less than 7 days wait (or the same as.) I wonder/think that some questions scroll so fast, that people may miss it; and a 'repost' question' would be helpful. Thoughts?

Please Clarify AskMe Guidelines

Okay I get why my question was deleted. Would it be okay to repost it as 'are overseas webhosts protected from US Copyright enforcers?'

Can I repost this project because of new link?

I posted a short film I made to Projects but hours after I did, the site hosting it took the video offline. It's back up with a new URL http://www.gamevideos.com/video/id/6370 but I can't edit my old project post nor can I repost it. I had no control over the hosting site and this video is for a contest where only the 10 most popular films move on to the next round. Voting ends October 10. Would it be possible to repost to Projects?

Re-Post with Pictures?

I'm somewhat new to Ask MetaFilter, is it ok (scratch that), is it proper to re-post or a make a new post now that pictures are supplied? A few weeks ago I posted a question about the value of a Coke bottle with pork rib bones inside. At the time I had no pictures to go along with the original post, but a few days later I was able to post some, by that time the post was history - no response.

Thank you for your consideration.

Can we get a redo? mickeyz just screwed up his post and put the body text where the title was supposed to go. Instead of deleting it outright, can one of our benevolent overlords repair it and put it back? It's a legitimate FPP, otherwise.

Please don't repost NYT links, thanks. And quit chatting in Metatalk!

This is the second–most prominant story in today's New York Times. Not what MetaFilter is for. Extra specialicious complaint: MeTa has become a chat forum. Also this, this, this, this, and this.

Hypothetical - reposting something deleted for bad form?

Hypothetical scenario: Someone puts up a front page post, but does it in a manner with heavy editorializing / intentionally trolling / etc. The topic is interesting, but it gets removed because of the garbage that came along with it. Someone reposts on the same topic, even with some of the same links, but without the editorializing. Would it be okay? Is there a policy on this?

Threads I wish weren't closed

There's some threads on AxeMe that I find myself wishing weren't closed. I know you've been busy and haven't had much time or possibly inclination to work on AxeMe, Matt, and I think/hope that maybe these threads will return via a sidebar or such...

But in the meantime, I was wondering what #1 and the gang's opinion would be on occasionally reposting questions that might benefit from the occasional update. I'm thinking of the fave reads, fave listens, and desktop threads in particular.

Preventing reposts of deleted stories

This dangling baby . . . it vibrates? Every time Matt kills a "Jacko's dangling baby" post, another pops up to replace it. We've talked about this before, but I think the (general) question needs to be raised: What, if anything, can be done to prevent reposting deleted stories? It's been pointed out that posters may not know that they're posting something that has been deleted before because, um, it's been deleted before! (And with wacky news like this, there can be any number of sources for the same story, sorry.) Short of deleting the story every time it pops up, is there a better solution?
