August is MetaFilter fundraising month!
Hey, folks, it's time for a fundraising push! MetaFilter depends primarily on member and reader funding to operate, and that's even more true over time as advertising revenue continues to decline. Your new and increased subscriptions and one-time contributions are what will make it possible for us to continue to operate as the actively moderated community website we've been for the last 22 years and counting.

State of Metafilter, and funding update

It's been a year since Metafilter was dealing with a massive financial crisis and layoffs, and things are a lot more stable today, thanks in large part to the tremendous generosity of the Metafilter community in helping to fund the site's operation. Here's a round-up of the last year's events, and what's next for the site, as well as some new details on how folks can help the site out financially.

We want to say thank you, again, to all the folks on Metafilter and in the web community at large who care about this site and support its continued presence as a unique, vibrant place on the internet.
