Gold Star

From Mefi Wiki

For a brief period during mid-2003, if you were browsing MetaFilter you might have seen a User Name (the name labeling a post) with a gold star preceding it. The gold star was given out by Matt Haughey at his sole discretion. However, MattHaughey changed his mind about gold stars in June 2003 and removed them from the website.

Gold Stars given out to date

  • For a brief period the three winners of the December 2006 Best Post contest (see Contests) had gold stars next to their names in MetaTalk only, but this again caused confusion and was later removed.
