🎉Fundraising Wrap-Up: You've put MetaFilter on the road to Revival!

A few months ago we came to you with information we had just learned about the dire financial state of MetaFilter. The site was losing money every month and the cash reserves keeping it afloat had run dry. The situation was grim. But MeFites, you stepped up in a big, big way: recurring contributions have gone up by $9,863.10 and we have received $78,857.91 in one-time contributions (both figures are net). This means that according to our targets MetaFilter has more than enough budget to Survive, and is within striking distance of Revive! There are more details inside about the specifics of the fundraiser and how the funds will be used, so please keep reading… [more inside]

A Huge Birthday Thank-you!

So a few weeks ago I posted a question asking for ideas to Harry Potter-ify my wife's birthday. I wanted to thank Metafilter generally for being the kind of place where I can ask that kind of question and also thank everybody who took the time to give an answer. There were a ton of really great suggestions! [more inside]

Thanks for all the help

Hey, just wanted to say thank you for all the help in several recent health related AskMe questions. They were all about about my wife, Lisa (lynnshaze), who was having a hell of time of it, health wise.

Sadly, she passed on March 18, at the house, surrounded by loving family members.

While Lisa was wasn't an active member on Metafilter, we'd often talk about the site and what was going on here. We definitely discussed the various advice offered on her health issues, which was deeply appreciated.

She once said she often used the site to see what "foolishness" I was up to though, heh.

Family and friends wrote and drew messages on her casket before putting it to rest, which was very cathartic and soothing. Several people remarked they'd want something similar at their funeral, so I share these these photos with y'all to show how beautiful that went.

Thanks again, and as a gentle nudge, have your affairs in order (will, power of attorney, health directive) as it makes things so much easier for the survivors.

God bless.

Random Acts of Kindness

End of another long week, let's carve out a space to talk about something other than politics for those that need that space. Let's talk about random acts of kindness. I just read this news story about a woman who let a stranger ahead of her in line while shopping, the stranger repaid this act of kindness by purchasing some of her items as a thank you. What are some random acts of kindness that you have experienced yourself? Maybe someone bought you a cup of coffee. Or passed on a parking ticket that still had time left on it. It could be the dinner that was paid for without your knowledge. Whatever it is, in keeping with the holiday spirit, let's talk about those random acts of kindness that surprised you. Don't forget that this includes being kind to yourself. Cheers.

Hey, like wow, thank you all!

Can I just say that the Blue has been amazing lately and I've been having a lot of fun with the diversity of posts. And by diversity, I can't even begin to describe, but if you've been watching the Blue you know what I mean. Thank you, all of you, for your posts! I'm sure I'm not the only member who has felt delighted by something unexpected... So yay!

I always knew you were special

On my 10 year anniversary here at MetaFilter, I would just like to thank all of the MeFites that have welcomed me to this community and given me so much to think about. I'd especially like to thank the mods (past and present) for keeping the place sane and levelheaded, the Quonczars for the annual Quonsmas season fun, and especially mathowie who built this special home.

You're awesome MetaFilter. Best of the web indeed!

There have been some amazing posts hitting the front page lately and I just wanted to have a place to say thanks. Also, it's an excuse to have a thread where we can just be positive and nice to each other. You're awesome and I like this place and I'm always finding something new and interesting. So thank you to everyone. Those who post and those who comment. And even those who lurk. :)

Thank you, MeFites!

I'm an inveterate, invertebrate people-pleaser, from a long line of inveterate, invertebrate people-pleasers. It's almost pathological. When I want to say 'no' to someone, I typically have a panic attack, hint around wanting to give a negative answer, then say 'yes' anyway. I then spend weeks kicking myself for saying 'yes' to them.

2015 Secret Quonsar Thank You Thread!

A mysterious package arrived in the mail this morning. My first thoughts was, "My Quonsar gift?!", followed quickly by "Who on earth would be that on-the-ball to get out their gift this early?!?!" The answer? My Quonsarer, that's who!! Thank you so much for the yummy vegan creme-filled cupcakes, the Japanese "knowledge cards", and the fun maps of San Francisco. Happy Quonsar, everyone!

Secret Quonsar Thank You Thread!

My dog just started barking at the UPS man, but I wasn't expecting anything. Or was I? Thank you, Matt Haughey, for the t-shirt (and baby gift to come, squee!!)!

Thanks to Jessamyn et al.

I love Metafilter and the site continues to get more awesome, especially with the addition of the feature that shows the number of recent new and as yet invisible comments. I love Metafilter even when mods occasionally reject my questions as inappropriate. Thanks to all the admins; you're doing a great job. That is all.
