Fruits of Firstpost September

We've wrapped up FirstPost September! A big thank you to julen for organizing and to all the posters who took part.

Great stuff to give a second look under these tags:

FirstPost (from building a medieval LEGO village, to visiting the last audio cassette factory, to this farewell from the bad boy of Canadian dance)

FirstTimeLongTime (did you see the fake Shakespeare play? You can visit Horace Rumpole to see it in person!)

SecondPost (such as Strunk and White, Grammar Police), and even ThirdPost (how about a bot that makes villanelles from tweets).

Posting to the front page of Metafilter can seem daunting, mysterious, and/or fraught with with uncertain outcomes. (Spoiler: It is easier than it might look.) If you have never or rarely posted a FPP but would like to, we’re here to help.

I propose we spend September helping new posters successfully make the leap into the wonderful world of FPPs.

In MetaTalk, julen suggests a cool member collaboration for next month: "Let’s Encourage and Help Folks Make Their First Posts," and asks for input.
