[MeFi Site Update] August 30th
August 30, 2021 12:50 PM   Subscribe

hello Metafilter! We are back to regular site updates this week. Please find more details on the state of the site below. Reminder: I will be the only mod monitoring this thread so please be patient as I reply to your feedback and questions. If you have any questions or feedback not related to this particular update, please Contact Us instead. If you want to discuss a particular subject not covered here with the community, you’re welcome to open a separate MetaTalk thread for it.

Fundraising Update

As August is coming to an end, so is our current fundraising push.

We have raised $1099/mo in new monthly subscription revenue, plus several thousand dollars in one-time contributions, thanks to your support. This will help greatly to stabilize the site finances and you can expect some extra info on that later this week. If you want, you can still contribute or increase your contribution here.

Also, so far, reduced mod coverage has been running smoothly without any major hiccups.

General Updates

- frimble is still continuing to work in the background on enhancements and fixes, and closed out a couple of feature/tweak requests in the last week.
- Work with the BIPOC Advisory Board is still ongoing, we’ll let you know once the next meeting is scheduled.

Feel free to add questions to this thread and I will do my best to address them as promptly as possible.

Hey that is great news, the fundraising. I’m sure more would be nice but it’s not bad.
All is not lost!
