Fantastic commenters will never know they're fantastic

I'm seeing a lot of great comments on the blue lately; I mark them as favorites, of course, but sometimes I flag them as "Fantastic". However, the commenter doesn't receive this feedback. [more inside]

Unflagging enthusiasm with fat fingers

I flagged something today while reading on my mobile, that five seconds later I realised I did not need to flag for the reason I gave. I could not unflag the comment and I fretted over this for ten minutes guiltily. Previously I have also flagged and favourited things by accident because of the fat fingers/tiny screen while reading metafilter on my phone. Is it technically and/or operationally possible to change the "Flagged" text to a link to either undo the flag/change it or to go straight to the moderators contact page? Or perhaps a "Scourge thyself, blamer of innocents" button would work for me. I'm posting to metatalk because I don't know if this is just a me being dumb on my phone issue or others would also like this added.

I plant this flag in the name of...

Can we please have a rundown on flagging etiquette? There seems to be a lot of "flag and move one" response from the mods as of late, and while that may be the best choice of action for a lot of the scenarios, 9 times out of 10 I'm stuck on the fence as to whether or not I should. [more inside]

So that interest doesn't flag...

"Chatfilter" is not one of the reasons included in the drop-down flagging menu on ask.me and I think it should be.

Seriously guys, he just wants a name.

The poster of this question has clearly stated, "I'm not trying to solve their problems, I'm looking for specific recommendations for a marriage counselor. You know, like a name. If I wanted advice about 'how do I deal with my friends' psychotic marriage problems,' that's the question I'd have asked." I've flagged the responses that judged the poster rather than answering the question, and several of those comments were deleted, but many of them remain. I'm curious about where that line was drawn. Also, if people really feel the need to question the poster's judgment, hopefully they can do it here and leave the thread with less noise.

"Flag it and move on!" "I can't!" "The override, where's the override?!?!?"

Problem A: A Metafilter Jobs post breaks the guidelines, IMO. Problem B: I get a Cold Fusion error when flagging it as breaking the guidelines.

Young and able, but indeflaggable

Love the new ajax flagging and looking forward to seeing it on the other sites. I especially like that it shows that you have flagged something, and would like to see an option to remove said flag in case of a mistake, or regretting a knee-jerk reaction.

Make flags work like favorites please.

Without complaining about a specific thread, Matt, can we get "flagging" to be inline/ajaxy, as a drop down, rather than the press, choose, new page, back to thread? The way that the favorites work?

Moderation discussion

Leon says: (There's a serious discussion to be had about how moderation systems tend towards broken as community size increases, but this isn't the place.)

This is the place, if my watching MeTa for the last month is any indication. We have a little bit o' this, in the flagging facility -- and even that is misunderstood by many. And yet people suggest more.

Discuss?

AskMe Relationship Questions

Is it time for freetherapy.metafilter.com? Nothing against this poster or their particular situation, but it's perhaps the most egregious example I've seen of the "I just want someone to talk to" style of non-question that seems to increasingly pollute AskMe.

Flag Reasons

this has been mentioned before, but.. i am sometimes hamfisted, and was trying to flag a post as fantastic and instead submitted a "pick a reason:" flag. all of the discussion in the previous thread was about superseding flags - but is it a lot of work to make the site simply reject the pick-a-reasons?

"Flag This Post" Bug

In MeTa and AskMe the flag [!] icon with each comment has a mouseover that reads "flag this post". But in MetaFilter the mouseover is really wide with the whole URL as well as "flag this post". It's really annoying when scrolling/reading. Can the blue be aligned with the other sites please?

Announcing: favorites and flagging

I'm working on favorites and releasing what I have today. Think of favorites as an internal bookmark system, a way to keep a list of the good questions, great comments, or interesting ideas you've found here.

Right now, you can mark a thread on mefi, metatalk, or ask mefi as a favorite, and view it at the link in the header above (is the header too wide for small monitors?). All your stuff marked as a favorite is public and anyone else can see the stuff you've marked (this comes in handy later on).

I'll be adding the ability to flag comments later today and very soon I'll be doing something akin to the fantastic posts page on Ask MeFi, where the most favorited things over the past few days is highlighted on a single page.

New Flag Request

Pony request, in light of this thread -- flagging options include "noise", "derail" or "doesn't follow the guidlines" but it seems to me AskMe requires another option, kind of an opposite to "fantastic post" -- how about adding "Doesn't answer the question"?

But that would require AskMe specific flags, which might be difficult or impossible. Instead, how about an "Irrelevant" flag?

Feedback system for flagging so I can see that it has some result

Feedback System for Flagging: Everytime someone posts a callaout to MeTa, the usual response is "flag it and move on", which is great in theory, but there's absolutely no feedback by doing that. A page that lists everything we've flagged and the respective follow-up. (Please note, these responses could be automatically generated based on the current status of the post/comment) Examples:
Comemnt #129382 - Flagged as: Offensive - Result: Flag noted by admin but ignored.
Post #129834 - Flagged as: Duplicate - Result: Post Deleted
Post #149493 - Flagged as: Excellent - Result: Added to sidebar
I think if users could see that flagging actually has some effect, they might be less liable to whine about it in MeTa Callouts.

Marking a question to check back on it

Is there a way to flag a question in AskMe (not one of my own) so I can go back to it several hours later and read the comments that have accumulated? Am I missing some obvious functionality that does that? Currently, if I want to check back on a question, I have to remember what the question was and sift through (potentially) loads of other questions that have been asked since. Thanks!

This thread is a disaster.

This thread is a disaster. It has such a long pissing match in it that advances nothing that I simply cannot see going click-click-click all the way through the noise to flag each off-topic post. I feel like I need a button for "there's so many violating posts in this thread I cannot possibly flag them all individually and still have time for 3 squares and 8 hours of sleep in a day." [mi]

Why not place the [!] flag on the front page instead of having to open a thread? The Dish TV post is so bad on so many levels that I felt all icky opening it to flag it. heheh

Flagging on "Recent Comments"

Any chance we could get the "flag post" link on the my recent comments page? If it's easy that is, not really a big deal. I just spend a lot of time reading comments on there these days instead of the actual threads.

New Flagging Reason

This had me thinking: wouldn't it make sense to have "needs 'more inside'" as a reason when flagging posts? I flagged it, but had to put "other;" and, if memory serves, plenty of good first-time posters have had their first threads derailed by the first few "whoa! muddying up the front page there!" comments.
