Blues, military and history

A minor emendation: "others."

That is all.

I've never quite figured out the etiquette to follow-up posts...

followup.metafilter.com would be a nice pony

PrinceValium is right: followup.metafilter.com would be a nice pony. (more)

Followup material goes where now?

Is MetaTalk a good place to point out that the verdict described in this thread was just overturned?

I often find follow-up material like this long after the original thread is gone. It doesn't seem worth a whole new FPP, but I do think that people who read the original post would want to know. FollowupFilterSidebar?

Boudreaux SAVED my dad

Follow-up to the recent photoshop/"Boudreaux killed my dad" thread: the lance corporal's mom, who runs a computer store and has been living in fear, says the original was "Boudreaux saved my dad."

adding new information (inspired by WalMart shopper story)

The story of the trampled Wal-Mart shopper was a a FPP post a few days ago. It turns out it might have been contrived. As I read the latest story, I felt that somehow the record had to be set straight on mf with this new information (I am an idealist, I suppose). But, at the same time, it certainly did not seem to be worthy of a new FPP. How does MF- as a community- handle retractions or new (conflicting) information without gumming up the front page with mediocre posts? Or is it not even worth worrying about?

This is definitely now how we do an update

Something really got your knickers in a knot? Well, then, don't just put it on the front page once. Wait one day and post an update. Note that in this case, the update's new information is a week old and was already posted in the original thread.

"follow-up" mechanism?

Have you ever considered a "follow-up" mechanism of some sort?

AU may back off unsuccessful "Pacific Solution"

AU may back off unsuccessful "Pacific Solution"
    Howard himself may be clearing the ground for a back down. In a marked departure from his election campaign rhetoric, he said in an interview last week that turning asylum seekers' boats back to sea was "completely inhuman."
    That's not just marked, it's a 180! There was a bit of interest in this story here a while ago, but I thought this new wrinkle in AU's aid-for-beds deal with Pacific nations didn't merit another "FPP." (see also 1, 2)
