9/11 was an inside job

"Submitting a link is akin to writing a little paper for school."

"I just went to MetaFilter and the top link is "How many goats are you worth?". Is that more intellectual than the entries on Reddit?"

"I hate, hate, hate it when they put multiple links in single words."

reddit discovers Metafilter.

dimeadozen.org, a torrent site, requires signing up for an account. Would it make a good post?

I just found a site, dimeadozen.org, that I think might make a good Metafilter post. It's got torrents of tons and tons of live concerts. (I'm listening right now to the Tom Waits show in Nashville that I saw last weekend.) The problem is that it requires you to sign up for an account, and there's a limited number of account slots available each day. Would this still make a good post?

How many people sign up per day?

My friend and I were discussing MeFi and came to a point of contention when estimating the number of new users MeFi receives per day. My guess was 5 to 10, his was 25 or more. Perhaps this argument can be laid to rest here. How many new users does MeFi average per day?

Closing New-User Signups

With the increasing number of stupid call outs on MetaTalk of late, the general lowering of the standards of debate in MeFi and seemingly more and more attacks on #1 and #292 for their admin decisions, I respectfully and tentatively suggest that now may be the time to close off new user sign-ups for a while.

Strange user pages exist in the system for potential MeFites who didn't activate their membership

When you search users you get users who started the signup process, but never paid their $5. Strange user pages ensue.

User Numbers

So I've noticed there's a user 25210 and 25209, but no 25208, 25207, 25206, 25205, or 25204. There is, however, a user 25203 but no 25202 or 25201. There's a 25200, 25199, 25198, and 25197, but no 25196, 25195, 25194, 25193, or 25192. There's a user 25191, but no 25190 or 25189. There does happen to exist a 25188 and that's as far as I'm gonna go. I can only hope you've gotten the point by now, but if not: What's with the missing users?

Can we close signups now?

Can we close the door now? I'm genuinely happy to have some new blood, but here's the problem. Pretty much everyone who's been reading the site with their noses against the glass has been let in. Hereafter, we're going to get a bunch of folks who happen to be wandering by, and know nothing of how things are done around here. (I don't know if that's the case with notmtwain, I'm only using his/her post as an example because it glares so.) We can always open it up again later, but can we have a moratorium on new users? Just for now? Please?

Interval between signup and FPP?

Hi. I just signed up a few hours ago.When can we start posting in the blue?

$5, same as in town: perks for signing up

Are these new logins, having paid, getting to see the new ad-free MeFi?

Does the $5 fee come with an uptime guarantee?

Lastly, will Mathowie pay me $5 to rescind my login? Really lastly, what is the returns policy for those who have paid their $5?

Did anyone else noticed the membership count changing in the blue?

Did anyone else noticed the membership count changing in the blue? It seemed like it dropped from the 17000's down to 16896.

When will signups be reopened?

As long as I'm asking questions, when are new members going to be accepted again? A friend who I introduced Mefi to recently offered $ for my login. He was desperate. I said no. He cried.

Can we open signups?

People on mefi are criticizing him and he can't respond here because he doesn't have an account.

While open season is closed, would an open-door policy for postees work?

MeFi Swap

Just a reminder: this Saturday is the last day to sign up for the current round of the MeFi Swap. 143 signed up so far, so this round should be pretty exciting.

Any chance of a set of guidelines?

I've had three friends asking me what "hoops we have to jump through" to become members of MetaFilter now that the new process is in place. Any chance of a set of guidelines?

Either that, or we can start talking about building an assault course for the new signups... ;)

Have signups opened again?

Welcome to ascullion, a member since May 1, 2003. Did I miss something? When did new users signups begin again? Only asking because I've got a couple of online buddies who would be interested.

Easing the transition for new users.

20 neophytes a day - and I'm one of yesterday's crop. Fresh-faced, clean-skinned...

As a Content Editor at Everything2, I'm intimately acquainted with the stickiness inherent in introducing new people to an online community (especially a content-oriented community, as opposed to activity-, hobby-, or interest-oriented ones). There seems to be a dearth of documentation. I guess this site is pretty self-explanatory, which is refreshing - I've been an E2 user for two and a half years and I still occasionally scratch my big, fat head. Also, after such a long, long time with no new users (I know it was a long time because I spent a long time checking the new user page), you guys must be experiencing something of a shock, too.

Any ideas as to what could be done to ease the transition for newbies and allay the angst, if any, of the old guard?

Feel free to kill this if I'm out of line, long-winded or otherwise. I'm a new at this.

Since Matt is getting a new server, he mentioned turning new sign-ups back on. How do we feel about this?

Signups closed, members grow

The membership number keeps going up, yet I thought the site was closed off. What am I missing?

My friend wants to sign up

A friend from Oakland told me two nights go night she was unable to register to become a member? Was there a problem with the site, or is she daft (my view).

Thread/Comment and User Growth statistics, July 2001

Thread/Comment and User Growth statistics are up for July. This is the first month that threads and comments actually dropped slightly, largely because new user signups are still disabled. Also, we broke 10,000 user IDs yesterday. Congratulations, Ricci.

Duplicate names are possible.

It is possible to sign up under the same name as someone else, using a [SPACE] before the username. That is a bad thing.

please post my comments!! (closed membership)

The huddled masses are getting desperate!

I received the following e-mail yesterday:

From PreesiGirl@aol.com
To:pikachulolita@home.com, edchamp@earthlink.net, srosenyc@aol.com

Hi Everyone,
Since 'Metafilter' aint accepting new users I thought I'd
write to a bunch of you. Someone please post my comments
for me?

Heres my take on MaryRomantic (Mary Terry):
Read the part about the gift and the 'snag-points'
Also think about the fact that she's asking for something
unattainable in men (IE no one will ever fit her profile). And the fact that she only meets them
in public and that she ultimately has the full power to say, "Sorry! I don't think YOU are 'him', Goodbye" !
That is after She has obtained the GIFT.
Look at this statement:
[. No matter what kind of other strange message I may hear on your answering machine, even if it sounds as though you won't be around until way past our appointed date time, I'll know that that kind of message doesn't pertain to me, ]
This makes ME believe as though ALOT of men have gotten thru to her answering machine and those are the strange messages.

The fact that she's jobless and unmarried leads me to the following:

Mary is a grifter! In the same fashion as Robert Blakes wife was.
She has men meet her somewhere, probably where her real boyfriend
is hiding behind a bush, gets her 'gift' and chats with him for a few minutes and since she has the authority in the say so of the meeting
she tells him she needs to think about him and she'll contact HIM!
She never does and goes on to the next sucker thats lined up in a few minutes somewhere else.
The men are too ashamed that they fell for this that they don't dare discuss it with friends or go to the cops.
If the gift is $100.00, she could make a nice income off of this grifting!

Just my observations.

PS Ed? I thought the same thing about LRonHubbard and her site. LOL

New Member Flood

The Brill's Content thing deserves its own thread: Looks like we've gotten about 500 new members in the past 24 hours, judging by the member numbers at the top of the page.
