Winter MeFiSwap!

You listen to good music. You pick some of it out, and you put it in a certain order, and you listen to your mix all the time. It's good! It sounds good, too good to keep to yourself. So you burn 5 copies of your mix to CD and you put 'em in the mail. Soon 5 different discs containing 5 different mixes from 5 other people appear in your mailbox, and this is good because you're tired of listening to the mix you made and some new tunes from cool MeFites is just the right thing.

Is it time for MetaFilter consignment?

I know a MetaFilter swapsite or Craigslist-y thing has been suggested before, but now that I have a thing burning a hole in my pocket that I'd like to give to an interested local Mefite -- like, today -- I'm wondering if it's time. I'd like to sell or give away things to you, and I'd like to buy stuff, too. I'm pretty sure that we could do some really interesting things with this, like what Miko did with her $9 something offer.

Inspired by this AskMeFi, it might be a good idea that we mail each other some hometown-inspired packages of our own. yes/no?

Metafilter Mix CD Swap: Best of 2007 Edition Tracklists

A little over two months ago, I proposed a Metafilter Mix CD Swap: Best of 2007 Edition. Twenty-three people decided to participate and swapped CDs containing their favorite songs from 2007. In that thread it was suggested that after the swap concluded “yall make a thread with your final tracklists and commentary, or otherwise publish them where I and others could read and DL accordingly.” Of the twenty-three participants, seventeen decided to share their tracklists, which you will find inside. Rock on. [more inside]

Shirt Swap?

My MetaFilter shirt just arrived and boy is an American "large" ever big compared to my Canadian frame. Does anyone have a "medium" that's too tight for them that they'd like to swap?

MeFi Swap

Mefi Swap 2006 : Come on. You need to send out your CDs already. I participated in two groups this time around, and sent out 10 cds. I've received only 4. This isn't an election where that sort of return rate is acceptable. Get off your lazy ass and fulfill your commitment.

Swapping on MeFi

Feature request: I want swap.metafilter.com. I really want to unload my junk on my fellow MeFites, and buy their junk off them. Please, Matt? Craigslist and eBay don't require a 5-spot to join, unlike MeFi, so that cuts down dramatically on the skeezy lowlife scammer factor. Another advantage is that this place is a real community and people care about their reputations. The community self-policing is strong, and MeFi's full of interesting people with (most likely) compelling junk they want to get rid of. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

Also, people here are really creative. Wouldn't it be cool if Miguel could sell his books here, for instance? Or Steven Den Beste could trade anime with other otaku. MeFites who are painters could sell their paintings. Sculpture. And so on.

What happened to the latest MeFi CD Swap?

Does anyone have info about the latest, greatest MeFi swap? There hasn't been any new updates on their site, and the "sending of the swapsets" date has come and gone. What gives?

mefi cd swap - worth the wait

How about a round of applause for skygazer, missing member of mefi swapset grey from 11/05 who not only finally sent along the CDs, but included a short handwritten note, a tiny toy gun, an even smaller piece of black licorice, a guitar string, and a particularly meaningful (to me at least) blank postcard of early concept designs of the space shuttle.

All of this arrived in the mail in the midst of particularly bad week, so to receive a bit of human sharedness and new music to discover from a total stranger was great. My faith in mefi and humanity is restored. Thank you.

Opinions on MefiSwap (music)?

Voice your opinion on the future of the MeFiSwap. Or at least the MeFiSwap as I've got a hand in it. If you've been a part in the past, if you want to be a part in the future, if you've just got a thought you want to share, here's an opportunity.

MeFiSwap

So... it appears that MeFiSwap is dead or becoming dead. Dreama appears to be very busy with a new kid and everything else that happens in life.

Are people interested in reviving this? I would be willing to do the administration aspect. I would NOT be able to start it until about 3 weeks, as I will be traveling and dealing with school related stuff. Undoubtedly my site style/options will not be as slick as Dream's setup, but I see no reason why it would not work.

This post is just to inquire how much interest there is.

So, this MeFi CD swap reincarnated (previously discussed here) has its own page now, but I don't see a whole lot of activity. Are we going to do this thing, or what? (Or am I just being impatient?)

MeFiSwap is back and bigger than ever

It lives! It lives! After much fiddling, the MeFiSwap is back, bigger, brighter and better than ever with a new administrative system that will (knock wood) eliminate all of the human delays which have plagued it to date. Come, register, swap.

Also, if you were a part of the last one, please take a minute to follow-up on its success, if you would. Ta.

MeFi food swap?

MeFi swap for food? Zpousman asked about it in the moving thread from the gentleman in NYC whose lovely wife misses her home. I am sending a modest care package to the South and have been offered something southern in return - and I don't even know what's down there, let alone crave anything from there. Does someone terribly miss something that can be obtained in Florida? Grumblebee? Are Mrs Grumble's GooGoo Cluster needs met? In my fantasy, someone in upstate NY is dying for something Southern and then turns around and sends me cookies from the Ithaca Bakery.

Is anyone interested in another round of the MeFi Swap?

I hate to use MeTa for this purpose, but I figure it's worth asking: is anyone interested in another round of the MeFi Swap? I've received a grand total of 8 e-mails about it since the unannounced and unintended skipping of the '03/Q3 and '03/Q4 swaps, so I'm not sure if there's still enough interest to get things going again.

If there is interest, though, I'm ready to tackle the administrative side of things once again and will open signups for a new quarter ASAP, probably as soon as next Monday. So let me know, folks, if there's still a desire to do this.

Don't be afraid that no-one will like your choices, give it a go and open your mind to the possibility that you may hear something you have never heard of before (or a combination of favourites you may not have thought of).
