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.

Self-Flagging

Should I be able to flag my own posts? Because I just flagged all of them as Fantastic! (kidding, I just did one to test it). Am I making much ado about nothing?

I probably shouldn't be able to mark my own comments as fantastic.

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.

Could we have the threads/comments we've flagged as "fantastic" somehow noted on our profile pages?

Does the EFF count as a user's project?

Does this really count as a user's project? (And why doesn't MeFi Projects have flagging?)

Why does a new window open when I flag posts?

Why does flagging a post or comment have to involve the opening of so many new windows?

I don't understand this AskMe question

I don't understand. But then again, this is some pretty heady stuff and I'm a simple man. [I wanted to flag it but apparently you can't flag AskMe posts]

It's not ok to link to NAMBLA

"A link to NAMBLA is just wrong". I agree. At least on the front page, it's wrong. (more inside)

Deleted AskMe comment?

Anyone else having their comments deleted in AskMe threads? My comment in this thread was deleted as well as my answer in another recent thread. What gives? Am I just not that helpful?

Firefox and New Tabs

I have my preferences set to open links in a new window, but this should only apply to external links right? When I click [!] on a post, the flag form appears in the same tab (using Firefox obviously, on Windows), but when I hit the "Flag this post" button on the form, the result (including the redirect back to the thread) opens a new tab. I've noticed other situations too where internal metafilter links open in a new tab. Minor, but an annoyance of note.

Where's the line between being perceived as a shill and a real self-link?

shill?

What is the [!] feature?

What is the [!] feature? I've searched MeFi, MeTa, Ask and Wiki and haven't found any explanation of flagging a post, how it works or what it does? Help a FNG out...

Searching and Flagging

PonyFilter - search Threads&Comments in the blue? Seeing what posts have been flagged as? Or has these been asked about already? (metatalk search sez no...)

I double post and get shit. A triple post gets a pass?

Why is it that when I double posted an item on The World in January everyone pissed in my cornflakes, repeatedly, but with this triple post fenriq gets a pass?

Newsfilter as flag?

This is getting irritating. Could "newsfilter" please be added to to the list of flag terms?

Flag the troll

Could we get a "troll" option for flagging?

Flagging error

After flagging a post I got this message: "Error Occurred While Processing Request... Element SITE is undefined in URL". Not sure if the flag registered or not, or if anyone else is seeing this message.

AskMe Flag?

"Didn't check google before posting"
Can this be added as a reason to flag an AskMe post? Or is this already covered by "it breaks the guidelines"?

Flagging

You can now flag posts or comments you find problematic, distasteful, illegal, off-topic, whatever. Just click on the little [!] links and record your reasons. [more inside]

Thread and Comment Nofications

idea (or has this been suggested before?):

what if each thread and comment had a "notify" link next to it; click the link and you get a pop-up window asking if you'd like to send the note, and if you clicked yes, a notification would be sent to matt, saying "this thread needs your attention" or "this comment needs your attention".

that way, people could notify matt of double posts and flamewars while they were reading the thread; this would eliminate the need for matt to constantly monitor the board himself, and potentially cut down on all those annoying double post comments.

the note could either send a separate email to matt, or it could just send a note telling him to go to a page that would compile the red flags by thread. he could see at a glance that 1 person flagged thread (a) and 12 flagged thread (b), and so on. this page would have check boxes next to each comment that had been flagged, so that matt could delete each notice once he had dealt with the trouble post.

if that seems like it would generate too much mail for matt, then a hybrid "star chamber/notification system" : this feature would be activated for 20 active, trusted members (preferably in various time zones).

the main result of this feature would be to eliminate the need for matt to continuously monitor the board himself, while at the same time ensuring that he makes all the calls regarding the appropriateness of any given post.

does my description make sense, and is this an idea that would save you time, matt?

Kill Post

How about a "kill post" function, with a tipping point. A little button next to front-page posts, that if 10, 15, 25, whatever people click within the first 10 minutes (or 5 responses) of a post, it gets deleted from the front page.

It's democratic, it's brutally efficient, and it will cut down on front page non-posts. I think people here are mature enough not to delete posts just because they're political.. and if not, the tipping point can just be scaled up a bit.

Should I filter MetaFilter (asks mathowie)?

This thread sucks. The link doesn't jump down to the story, the subject matter isn't very funny or interesting, it's just stupid. The post is too long, the comments are pretty pointless. I would delete it, but it could create more trouble than it is worth. What should be done about sub-par links? Anything? Take the good with the bad?
