Has "news.metafilter.com" ever been considered?

Has MetaFilter ever considered or discussed the idea of having a News subsite? A MetaNews sub for posting things that might otherwise be considered Newsfilter, and therefore Detestable Front Page Clutter? [more inside]

This pony has 60,000 to 1 odds

I know this is an incredible longshot, and I'm putting up my snark shield already, but is there any support for having a NewsFilter subsite? People who hate newsfilter FPPs could totally avoid them, and people like me would know what the hell's going on outside without ever having to leave the site. [more inside]

Status Blog Eliminated?

Has the status blog been eliminated? It takes me right back to the front page of the site like all of the joke subdomains that were all the rage back in the day.

politics subdomain

Not so much a feature-request as (I hope) a new twist on an old discussion. five_fresh_fish off-the-cuffed something in the "dhoyt" thread that got me thinking: What about poli.metafilter.com? It would address the problem that I think most people really have with "newsfilter", and it could be a way to leech off poisons from "the blue". (Hoping this doesn't derail into venom-swamp, and voting for purple...]

Subdividing AskMe?

It feels like AskMe questions come in Straight Dope and Dear Abby sorts (among others), with a lot more recently that can only be answered by personal anecdote. Evidently the community wants them (I read and appreciate them). Might splitting them off into a new color help keep AskMe from drowning in its success?

Proposal: MetaSoapbox.

Proposal: MetaSoapbox.

It seems that there's a lot of angsty energy being expended trying to keep people from using the blue, and even more so askmefi and metatalk, to get their polemical selves all wound up, announcing their latest charge-the-windmill initiatives, etc., etc. , etc.

While this all for the good, I can't help but think that there's often nothing better on the Internet than a good polemic, particularly a funny or provocative one, and no better place for it than here, where it's not all preaching to the choir.

I know that some people might say "that's what your own damn blog is for" but knowing that a stupid or impetuous soapbox effort will be laughed down (or, worse, ignored) can motivate and discipline a lot higher quality product than a typical blog.

And I'm not really thinking of politics as the exclusive subject, either. Lots of other subjects. All of you who labor in anonymity, striving to promote your Rant and Rave to Best of Craigslist, here's your chance to shine!

Fireside Chats with MeFites

Every once in a while, I find myself wanting to ask questions in Ask Metafilter that would fall under the category of "chat filter." I wonder how successful/productive a section of Metafilter resembling Coffee Talk with Linda Richman (you know, "Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic.") would be. Is there, by chance, any effort to produce such a section in the works?

Product review subsection

As a consumer, I've had a few very good and very bad experiences with service providers, recently. It'd be great if MetaFilter had a subsection to share these experiences to help the community share the joy and avoid the pain. Reviewing products and services where more people will see them is great way to improve services for everyone, and would have the potential for greater effect than discussing these things on our own weblogs. Perhaps this would be another way to harness the community positively in the way Ask MetaFilter has. How about it?

A warm fireplace with overstuffed chairs

Is anyone willing to create a MetaParlour? [Come into my thread, said the swan to the MeFites]

Matt's "photos" page

So, I was bored today checking out http://a.wholelottanothing.org/ and I stumbled across Matt's "photos" page. I think I recall looking at his photo page in the past. However, now, it just redirects to the regular metafilter website. I know the *.metafilter.com urls redirect to the regular metafilter website, but was this to be an exception?

A place to post short written things?

This thread makes it apparent that there a lot of creative writers in the mefite community. Perhaps a place, similar to Mefi Music, for users to post their short stories, plays, and poems?

A litterbox for pooflinging

Groan. Please. Stop.

Maybe we can set up a litterbox someplace where the concerned parties can fling the usual turds at each other till their batteries run down. These FPPs don't even seem to be conducive to discussion anymore. Agree to disagree already.
