The day has come.

We're going to be experimenting with some gentle scaling back of Metafilter's scope and services. [more inside]

Two weeks are better than one (in this case)

Man, the green has been busy lately - so much so that it's really hard to keep up. How about going back to the 14-day wait between questions?

How long do we wait for what's inside?

So here's a minor issue, strictly for decompression purposes: How long should we wait for someone to post his/her "More Inside" supplement? Matt recently rebuked ZachsMind and indeed deleted his offending comment because he leapt too soon, saying: "(...)you didn't wait until I had gotten my chance to finish my "more" post(...)". Yesterday y2Karl played the same trick on me.

Should it be ten or fifteen minutes? Or doesn't it matter? My own opinion is that one should just wait until the supplement is posted - unless it's demonstrably not forthcoming. Isn't jumping the gun just another version of annoying, pre-emptive thread sabotage? Or is it, somehow, fun?
