After/Upon the deluge. I feel somewhat self-conscious writing this since I only discovered Mefi in March. Nonetheless, I wonder if Matt has considered how to re-open Metafilter to new members. At this point, the pent-up demand is likely quite large, which could cause a kind of chaos. So I would suggest the when the gate re-opens, it be done in phases: maybe a certain number of posters per-day or per-week for a certain number of weeks; it's how we would do things back in Paramus. Just a thought.
Is the 5k affecting MeFi this morning? I keep getting timeouts and server too busy messages.
Don't know if it's a bug or just something I'm doing wrong, but when I try to go to the 5k site, it wants me to log in & even tells me I can use my MeFi ID there. Well, I tried to login, but it tells me I have the wrong password for my username (and yes, I checked, it's the same password that MeFi lets me log in with).. is something not right there?
