I want to start a christmas share the invite thread.

Link Somewhat Related I have one invite to what.cd and am looking for an invite to waffles.fm before Christmas would anyone be kind enough to share in the holiday spirit. Not to mention anyone else who may enjoy getting into any other invite only websites may also post their requests and offers. If you receive please have something to offer to the inviter like proof of inviting someone else to something you have or otherwise. Sort of a pay it forward concept.

Rules:
1. Post you're request by simply putting down what you can offer and what you're looking for.
2. If you have made a direct offer to someone in this thread who has made a request post that you have made someone an offer for their request.
3. Make sure that if you've received something with no request to reciprocate that you be sure to try to give someone else something.
4. Respect the membership you have just attained as I know you MeFi'tes do so well.
5. Don't post you're email addresses publicly to avoid spam try to stick to using mefi mail untill someone actually sends an invite to you and visa versa.
6. Have fun and hopefully I get a waffles invite :P.

I was going to make some joke about respecting the membership you've just attained, chipmunk, but you've been here since '06. What the?
posted by box at 6:07 AM on December 15, 2009


I was going to post the fact that I'm new to actual mefi I've been an ask'er for a while. So I'm somewhat new to this whole thing :P forgive me for being somewhat ... out of the ordinary and probably not so clear on the guidelines.

This will get more flags than a magicians' convention. Being held in the same hotel as a vexillology conference and the Semaphore Signallers reunion.

Yeah, Chamunks, this isn't what mefi is for at all. Sorry, dude.

You don't? Mefi is for sharing interesting things. It does not take the place of your personal blog, and it isn't like a messageboard where you can make a post about anything at all. Posts should point people to new things they can read, watch, use, or listen to.

That's a copy of The Handy Spammer you're holding though lad, not the MeFi FAQ

You don't see what's wrong with it? Really?

For starters, it's a single-link post to the IMDB page for Pay It Forward.

Maybe I missed something in the guidelines :P I'm just kinda waiting to see how fast this gets pulled now lol.

This would be better suited to Metatalk

This is not a good post for Metafilter.

If it makes you feel any better, I got on waffles straight out of oink then had my account deleted because I never logged in again.
posted by absalom at 6:15 AM on December 15, 2009


Could someone possibly link me this guidelines/rules page that I seem to have blatantly missed in my travels?
posted by Chamunks at 6:16 AM on December 15, 2009


I like waffles.

@absalom I really wish I got on that bandwagon when oink was crashing and burning... :S I had soo much upload on oink it was wonderful... Sigh.

Guidelines are under, er, "guidelines."
posted by JoanArkham at 6:18 AM on December 15, 2009


This was a link at the "new post" page that you were supposed to have read.

"f you're posting a generalized question to the audience, or posting a comment as a main thread, either find an appropriate mailing list, or use MetaTalk."

Damn now little timmies not going to get his tapler for xmas because I'm a nub at mefi posts lol.

Just to head things off, swapping invites isn't really what MetaTalk (or AskMe, or Projects, or Music, or Jobs) is for either.

Uh, the occasional Google Wave thread aside, I guess.
posted by box at 6:20 AM on December 15, 2009


I bet you do get your invite too, you cheeky devil. I'd certainly send one if I had one, though you have done a Bad Thing.

If I wasnt in dire need of sleep as much as i'm in dire need of an invite I would have certainly realised this is a meta talk post and not a metafilter post. Thats what I get for staying up way past my bedtimes.

Yeah, like the women who offered to trade sex for World Series tickets here in Philly. After she got busted, a radio station gave her tickets. 100 comments before deletion?

We're averaging over 2 posts per minute right for about 20 minutes straight now -- does that at least set a record?

Would have thought that it was obvious, even without having read any guidelines, that no-one else makes posts like this on the front page?

I am trying to learn to be more forgiving and generous, so I have both flagged the FPP as 'breaks the guidelines' and offered the OP an invitation to enjoy delicious waffles.
