Browsing AskMe Questions for Resolutions

Feature request! For the AskMe "My Favorites" page, would it be possible to mark best-answered questions with the same little green checkmark that appears next to best-answered questions on AskMe's main page? I often favorite questions because (while I never would have thought to ask them in the first place) they pique my curiosity once I read them, and I mean to come back to them later. A checkmark in "My Favorites" would be an easy way to see, from that page, whether such questions had been answered since I'd favorited them. Thanks for your consideration, and I hope all is well with you. I send my fondest regards to you and yours.

We were all eleven. Well. Most of us.

Quit popping things up on me!

Bug (or feature?): The "mark question resolved" button on the "confirm resolved" page on Ask Me pops a new tab, where it probably should use the same tab, as you don't need the question anymore. (Also, on the MetaTalk preview, it says use the back button to tweak the form, when you don't need to, as the form lives down below. Which is where I'm typing this in. Alright I'll shut up and stop causing pb more work.)

She asked for help getting rid of shame, we gave her more.

Metafilter collectively piled on to this OP so hard that she returned to update that she was actually essentially being triggered by the responses. How can we do this better and keep our own issues out of being helpful? Is there a way to "report pileon"? Should there be? [more inside]

When is a Double not a Double?

I'm not entirely sure how I came to it but I was reading this post at Gawker & wandered down into the comments only to find this odd bit of writing. Some of the replies were witty but then (MeFi's own?) Gawker editor Maureen O'Connor pointed out it was essentially identical to this anonynmous AskMe from 5 years ago. At the very least I figure it's a curiosity worth pointing out to my fellow MeFites who have too much free time on their hands & want to dissect it under the usual microscope.

Mainly cat name suggestions and obvious DTMFAs

I like to read interesting Ask Metafilter questions, although I rarely post anything myself. The Popular Favorites page is a good way to find these, but I've also noticed that questions with a lot of answers (say, over 50) are usually worth checking out too, even if they don't necessarily get a lot of favorites. Is there any way to view the AskMe site/feed in a way that only shows questions that have received more than a certain number of answers?

This is not the time machine I was hoping for...

When reading Ask on my iPhone, if I use the back arrow to back out of the question to the main page, it always takes me "back" to March 9th at 730 am. Is it just me?

ISO comment

Total longshot: I am looking for an askme comment from several years ago (probably between 2007-2009) where a user said they had been employed as a computer programmer by a big bank, designing a program to re-order transactions so that the bank could maximize its overdraft fees. I have searched high and low and can't find it. Help?

Why is my cat doing $weirdthing?

Ask Metafilter is becoming less useful as the site grows.

As the site has grown in popularity and more people join just to ask questions, the ratio between people who are knowlegeable and people who ask questions has fallen. This means that the questions on AskMe are coming in so thick and heavy that questions are buried before they can get answered properly. [more inside]
