State of Metafilter, and funding update

It’s been a busy year on Metafilter, with some big changes over the last twelve months.  Some of the hardest changes were the result of the financial difficulties that came to a head last May with significant staffing cuts.  And the best thing to happen for the site was the tremendous outpouring of generosity from Metafilter’s members in response to that financial crisis, through voluntary funding of Metafilter.  

I want to thank all of you again for your support, and give you an update on where site finances are now, how funding has helped, and how we’re trying to make it easier to support the site in a way that works well for you—including a new alternative to PayPal. [more inside]

Thanks from Mathowie

Holy mother of god. It's official, even though I was kind of worried about ponying (heh) up the dough for a couple of high ticket servers, I made enough money off the $5 signups today to pay for one year's hosting. So I want to say thanks to all the new users for ensuring the future of this place. I love ya. Some more news inside

Let me tread carefully here.

Let me tread carefully here. Is there a legit way people could post entire articles that require payed subscription (Atlantic, Salon, TNR, etc.) for the rest of us who have no subscriptions?

Lileks to have pay option.

Lileks to have pay option. It's returning to its full-bandwidth glory and: "I’m going to try something new here. The site, as it was, will still be free. But instead of putting up new stuff willy-nilly, I’m going to create a members section. Every Monday, a new peculiarity from the Institute’s gargantuan archives. Pictures, money, ads, early 60s British men’s magazine pinups, matchbooks, and many other peculiarities. A year’s subscription: $25." Well, count me in.
