Who We Are

MetaFilter is a global community where you'll find some of the most interesting stuff on the internet. For over two decades, we've been focused on fulfilling the web's potential to bring people together by creating a genuine, vibrant, and good-hearted community.

Our site is run by a small team of paid professionals providing round-the-clock moderation and support for the community. You can read more about us here.

Help Us Become Fully Independent

We have a lot of stuff in store, so stay tuned! MetaFilter is currently funded through a mix of advertising and the support from our wonderful community. Our goal is to become a fully community-funded site and you can help us improve and shape this community by contributing too!

Thank you for whatever support you can provide. Together we can keep fostering a healthy community of thoughtful and varied conversations.
