We are still looking for link-finders. You would only have to commit to reading the metanewsmods flist once or twice a month and keeping note of interesting meta. This would give our current link-finders one or two weeks off per month, which I think they deserve because they're awesome. Comment here or PM/email if you're interested.

We're also always looking for new places to find meta. I think we've got LJ and DW covered, but if you know of any tumblr rebloggers/writers or places in the blogosphere that we can add to rss feed, that'd be great. Comment here, on the screened post or PM/email.

If you have any suggestions/questions/concerns, comment to the Questions and Things post, or to the screened post if you'd like to comment anonymously, or PM/email.
