1. Mind if you post this to the front page? Or I do? Though my last post on the MK censorship issue didn’t go so well.

  2. Front page of Metafilter? Sure thing, go ahead if you want to, of course– a [via] to here would be good exposure for us!

  3. Hmmm… might get flagged as a double…

  4. Nah, stuff’s been cross-posted before (with “via GFi”) without being flagged as a double, so I doubt you have to worry about that.

  5. If it hasn’t been posted to MeFi before, it’s not a double! MeFi and GFi are wholly independent entities…

  6. I read that as meaning a double of his earlier MeFi post, not of this GFi post. Not sure whether that would qualify or not.

  7. This really does seem like an insane system. And the fact that no one is enforcing it and so many ways exist to circumvent it seems to confirm that censoring these games is more about appearances and politics than anything else.

  8. @stavrosthewonderchicken keep up the good work here. Since starting the nomic game I have also regularly been checking the front page here, and you are doing almost all the posting… I hope you’ll get the big userbase that this website deserves soon, but keep posting the content, it is (as you know) what is needed until critical mass.

    Thanks for all the interesting links.

  9. My pleasure. I do have days when I’m afraid the traction will never kick in, but I am eternally hopeful. ;-)

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you

  • Thank and Favorite all the goodness
  • Build a profile page with all your stuff in one convenient place
  • Send private messages and friend/follow your favorite GFites and their unstoppable Gfiltering style
  • Feel the warm glow of satisfaction in helping grow the community
  • Do all sorts of other neat things, both now and coming in the future!

Gamefilter is part of the growing MefightClub Network of sites, including our forum home, MefightClub itself, FullGlassEmptyClip, our group blog, and Ludic Research Labs, who are a bunch of bastards.

Your genial host is stavrosthewonderchicken, the miraculous poultry who built and administers the MFC Network sites, and a bunch of other web stuff as well. He has a minor addiction to building websites. He loves you all.
