60, 000!

The undoubtedly charming, but thus far silent johngaymon is the sixty-thousandth member of this fair site. That's a lot of plates of beans.

Hello, Radios!

I'll be doing a short, on-air, phoned in interview with Ronald Jenkees of youtube fame this Wednesday starting at 3pm (eastern standard time). You can listen to it live here. There will be a recording on that site shortly thereafter. If there are any questions the MeFi crowd would like me to ask, post them.

Get to Know Your Fellow MeFites.

We have a fandom post feature now, which of course is excellent. Now how about a random user feature? It could be called 'Get to Know A MeFite' or something like that. I think there are a lot of interesting user profile pages which many people have not and may not ever see, which is a shame, and this would be a potential way to highlight some of them. As an added bonus, this feature could lead to more Metafilter meet-ups as people stumble upon other users who they may not have known lived so close by. It could also lead people to explore their randomly chosen MeFite's posting history which may, in turn, lead many to discover several excellent (and awful) posts, questions and MeTa screeds which they may never have come across before.

Where in the world are all these people?!

We've began updating the metafilter KML file again. If you're using Google Earth, point it at metafilter.com/metafilter.kml to get the latest data (it's about 3Mb so it'll take a while). It'll be automatically updated once a week from here on out.

del.icio.us profiles

I imagine that some of my fellow mefites, collectors of the Best of the Web, would have great del.icio.us accounts for me to pick through. I'm not getting enough use out of their networking feature, either. Link your profiles! Here's me.

Aww man... Priyatam was the man. His UG Krishnamurti links were the best things I have ever seen on mefi.Wasn't permanent bannination a little harsh? Damn Jess - why you gotta be so gangsta? How about banning me, and letting him come back?

I like to complain.

Is there room for personal preference in the "users close to you box"?

I like you. Do you like me? Check one.

Possible to see members whose comments/FPPs you have favorited, who have themselves favorited one or more of your comments/FPPs?

I'm a heavy user. I read a LOT of posts. So, I'm amused at how my usage of this site has developed and cycled, and I'm interested in hearing anecdotes from others about patterns or changes in their mefi experience. More inside.

tag clouds for insight and knowledge.

Inspired by this thread, and in an effort to help us know each other better, would it be possible to have tag clouds of everything we've ever written on metafilter - not just the tags from our posts - displayed in our profile?

NOT raining on florence....honest!

Observation... Preference for florence henderson? While I truly enjoy florence's entries as much as you all do, I honestly don't see them as being better than SO many other comments, yet she seems to always get a fav vote or four. Is there something I should know here? Sorry, flo, not meaning to bust, I luvs ya too. Just asking though?

The sacred users

100 / 1000 / 10000 / 20000 / 40000 - yet 30000 and 50000 are suspiciously absent. Coincidence or conspiracy? You decide.

What is the protocol for contacting another member for something friendly and (admittedly) trivial if they don't have an email in their profile?

I remember a mefite having to spend some days in jail. Did s/he get out?

I remember a mefite having to spend some days in jail. It was via an askme question about what should this member do with her/his time.

I searched a couple hundred posts, and I tagged jail, prison, and bighouse. I can't find this person.

1. Who was this?
2. Did this person get out?

Is there a way to search members by location?

I swear I remember a way to find users from a specific locale- but I can't seem to conjure up a search-string that will do what I want, which is to find users in and around Munich and Berlin, Germany.

The rasion d'etre of my search is that I've found some 1500 photographs I took there 30 years ago, and I'd like some assistance in determining locations/stories.

Multiple Accounts for AskMe

Is the Multiple Account Rule still in effect?

I keep holding off on posting a question to ask metafilter because I'm afraid of using up my one good question that week. And the continuous hold off makes me miss out on asking so many questions that I need answers for.

I'm not out to break any of metafilter's rules, but it would be really nice if I could ask at least two questions a week. Or hell, if there was a program I could queue up questions to have them automatically submitted.

Statistics Please

Matt, can I have a pony for Christmas? Nothing too fancy, just some public statistics. Boingboing, for example, uses AWStats, which provides a delicious smörgåsbord of information. It doesn't sound too difficult to use, I've set up similar things on sites of my own.

New RSS Feeds

PonyFilter: Can we have RSS feeds for users' answers/posts? It'd be nice if you like a person's brand of answers and want to keep abreast of them, but are the kind of person who lives and dies by RSS feeds. Plus, y'know, well, there's this.

Similar Usernames

Similar names. There are multiple active users with my name or a variation of my name. I'm SpecialK, there's Special-K, and SpecialK420. I've had people email me about askme questions and answers posted by both of these other users.

I obviously wouldn't ask anyone to give up their identity, but in the future can we get some sort of policy from admins? I mean, otherwise, I'm going to start snapping up names like Ouonsar and mattowie before they're all gone...

I think it may be time to ban Leyna Howe.

I think it may be time to ban Leyna Howe. She's posted nothing but pseudo "questions" and mostly irrelevant comments about how to convince older men to not have kids (most of her comments and posts have been deleted already). I'm sympathetic to pet causes, but she's not engaging with the community in any way other than to "get the word out."

I hope this is the right place to do it... I just would like to give a great big shout-out to everyone who took time to answer my newspaper job interview and tryout questions.

You all rock, but CunningLinguist, croutonsupafreak, frogan, M.C. Lo-Carb! and game warden to the events rhino rock lots.


And thanks Mr Haughey for making a place where, within minutes, people who had the exact answers I needed were chipping in advice, reassurance and perspective from all over the world. That's pretty damn amazing. You rock too.

We all live in a Chicago rowhouse

Apparently over 100 MeFites live in a rowhouse in the McKinley Park neighbourhood of Chicago. Here's a few of them; you can find many, many more by looking at the "Users nearest this user" display. Perhaps we should hold our next meetup there?

Contacting local mefites

If I help plan a "meet up," is there a way to send out an email to all subscribers within an X-mile radius? Related -- is there a way for me to link to all subscribers who live in my city (i.e. as "neighbors") or are all links one-at-a-time? (Would it be weird to link to all subscribers in my city?)
