big response

Just curious why yet another Ask Metafilter answer was immediately deleted with no email explanation. Thanks.

Deleted posts orphans my comments. :`(

So I noticed that comments I've made in a posts which are subsequently deleted don't show up in my profile's activity...

To see things the way I do, you have to strip out the context entirely.

AmberV's posts in this thread are a fascinating account of what it's like to hold a conversation as a person with Asperger's.

Highlighting the original questioner's comments in Ask Metafilter - good idea or bad?

Often in Ask Metafilter the original questioner chimes in with clarifications or extra information, but answerers don't necessarily read all previous comments before chipping in. Do people think it might be a good idea to highlight the original poster's comments in thread? (Obviously this only makes sense for Ask).

Moderation in moderating

What standards of consistency to moderators apply in redacting comments? Can anything give rise to standards? I ask not so much to seek the retention of my own comments; the world wouldn't be worse off if all of them were deleted. But I am flabbergasted at the inconsistency in treatment -- e.g., the comments on this thread -- and amazed that there's no attempt to explain or even to identify the party responsible.

Most responses to a post ... ?

I really started something yesterday, and it's got me curious - do we know what the greatest number of comments ever made on a MetaFilter topic is?

Comment length hard limit?

Comments as votes?

Is it fair to consider the number of comments an FPP receives as an indication of community interest in the post? If so, then it is a pity that eustacescrubb's great find (a real best of the web IMHO) gets only a handful of comments whilst yet another FPP about Ann Coulter frothing at the mouth generates so many.

Favorites Page

Favorited comments not appearing on Favorites page. Ambrosia favorited this comment of mine, but it does not appear on my Favorites page. (It does appear on her favorites page.) Not sure if it's affecting the total favorites count.

Request: click and limit to specific poster

My first-ever pony request: In a given thread, what about a link next to each member's individual comments, that is titled "see all comments by this member in this thread." So, say, I want to see all of mathowie's comments in a particular thread, I click on that link and it gives me a page with just mathowie's comments in that thread. I know you can see all of a member's comments by going to their user page, but it's kind of cumbersome to click back and forth and you can't view all the comments together. It would be nice to have them all thrown up on one page. It would help us evaluate the position or argument that the person is developing throughout the thread.

The one-and-a-half-millionth comment

The one-and-a-half-millionth comment was posted to the blue last week without notice. And for good reason: it's a throw-away tagline in a quickly-deleted thread. So let's all laud the 1,499,999th comment instead. It took us just fifteen months to get from one million to here.

My "My Comments" page is broken. "[Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]Cannot sort a row of size 8407, which is greater than the allowable maximum of 8094." I have a hunch on which thread is to blame.

inconsistency in ability for logged in or out users to see favorites for comments

On AskMetafilter, when people are logged out of the site, they can see when threads and comments have been favorited, and by whom. On MetaFilter and MetaTalk, they can only see when threads have been favorited, but not comments. This is kinda strange!

This question is great, but the answers are not

This is a fine example of a decent question and good responses made much less satisfying because they are interspersed with responses from assholes who are just posting to see their names.

So now we have a visual indicator of how popular a specific post is. Cool. Could we take this one step further?

How about an RSS Feed that keeps track of when other people save your comment as favorites? Then you would never have to check that page manually to boost your self-worth.

Question about unique comments favorited

On the pages listing contributions by a particular user that have been favorited, each column says "Displaying 1 through n [posts | comments]", but the number given is the number of aggregate times such contributions have been favorited, not the number of unique items that have been favorited, as the text states. In other words, if a user has had exactly one post favorited, and its been favorited three times, the text will say "Displaying 1 through 3 posts."

Semantic Wording About Favorites

On the user profile page, the "# of comments marked by others as a favorite" is incorrectly worded. I think that the wording should be changed to something like, "# of times contributions by 'user x' were saved by others" instead. Or is it possible to snip the dupes and only include the unique posts and comments that were favorited (in the # itself)? I read this thread, but it didn't seem to discuss the language I'm referring to.

Would it be okay to post a link to my book in a post?

I wanted to post about the current threat to abortion rights along with some links to information about how to get or do abortions. One of the links I wanted to include was to a book that I worked on. Is it inapropriate to put this post on the main page? (Since I wasn't sure, I posted it on projects.) Advice?

The link in this post is ask.metafilter.com/mefi/40483#624324 but it opens at the post and not at the offending comment. Makes it rather difficult to follow the thread as a result. Am I missing something? Was it deleted? Can you point me to the comment in question? Is it OK to ask three four questions?

Could we have a timed window for editing comments?

How difficult would it be to program an edit function into our comments that allows us to revise our contributions within 1-5 minutes of posting it? I think it'd be a very cool thing to have for us OCD types that apologize after we spell something wrong and immediately correct ourselves in the next comment. Also, it could serve as a conscience (you post something, you regret it immediately, and get rid of it). Note, I'm not asking for unlimited editing. Only the ability to edit within 1-5 minutes of your original post.
