Happy 17th birthday, MetaFilter!

If you're looking for a low-key way to celebrate, drop in and join the wise, suave, and good-looking volunteers who help transcribe the podcast. (Thank you podcast transcribers! You are the best!)

... or if you prefer your celebrations more active, join the stalwart band of Pokemon Go obsessed Mefites as they report back from the field.

Metafilter's Sweet Sixteen

It's Metafilter's 16th birthday today! Every year we celebrate with a post about scanning cats, in homage to the very first live post on the site, back on July 14th, 1999.

In the ensuing years, the original cat-scan.com site disappeared; in 2011, mathowie bought the domain and turned it into a collection of user memories from the first 12 years of Metafilter.

Feel like digging into the site's yearly celebratory goof-off threads? Here you go: 2000, 2001 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 , 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014 .

A lot has changed on the internet in 16 years, but Metafilter's been here all along, being one of the best communities on the web. We're thankful to all the members who've been part of that, all the readers who have come along for the ride, and all the wonderful folks out there making the internet a place worth linking to and talking about. Now blow out your candles and make a wish.
