What is the MetaFilter wiki?

The MetaFilter Wiki is an unofficial collaborative wiki run by Pronoiac. The purpose of the Wiki is to produce and maintain a general guide to MetaFilter. It is editable by anyone, whether they are a MetaFilter user or not. There is a lot of good information there, especially about site history, specific users, and community norms and behaviors.

How do I suggest a new online community/social site for the "also on" section of the profile page?

There is a page on the MetaFilter wiki called SocialStuffs which is where you can suggest a new social site. That page has additional information on the information that pb will need in order to add the site. We try to add a group of new sites every few months.
