Frequently Asked Questions

This is a single FAQ from the MetaFilter FAQ.

What makes a good front page post to MetaFilter?

A good post to MetaFilter is something that meets some of the following criteria: most people haven't seen it before, there is something interesting about the content on the page, and it might warrant discussion from others.

Posts don't have to be long, and they don't have to contain multiple links or end with a discussion-sparking question.

If you browse through the 'sidebar tag' from the front page or the 'bestpost' tag on MetaTalk, you'll find a number of examples of Metafilter posts that have been flagged as 'fantastic' by the community.
