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]

Is there any way for users to see which posts and comments have been flagged as 'Fantastic'? That would be nice.

I was reading through a thread about health care and thought how nice it would be to have a script that would put a national flag next to the user's name so I could keep track of what country they live in. Wondering if anyone out there with such skills would help make my wish come true IF
it is even possible based on the information currently in user profiles.

I use Metafilter on my phone a lot, and sometimes I mean to favorite a comment but I flag it by mistake, because the buttons to click on are tiny and right next to each other on the touchscreen. Oops! [more inside]

I suggest that it might be useful to implement the ability to flag deleted posts as "bad deletion" (and possibly "good deletion"). This would be a harmless way for users to show their distaste at (or favor of) a deletion without starting yet another Meta thread on the subject. [more inside]

Is there a reason we can't flag a post without clicking in to the thread? It seems like it adds a click for no reason? Or is this an oddity of my out-of-date browser on an out-of-date OS on an out-of-date macbook?

If I flag a comment, I can choose one of several default options. One of the options is "fantastic comment", and the others are terrible. Why can't I choose "fantastic" when I favorite a comment? [more inside]

The 'fantastic' flag: I know it's been called "outdated", and people have asked for it to be removed. Who cares about that! I would really like to know how many people use it, how it is used, and how the mods react to it being used. [more inside]

Workplace Sensitivifilter. I seem to be in disagreement with a large number of people on whether the Japanese "rising sun" flag is inappropriate for the workplace, per a tangentially related ask.meta post. [more inside]

Could we add "already in the question" or something similar to the flagging options for AskMe? [more inside]

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.

There's a flag for "fantastic post". Is that used for anything, or have favorites replaced it?

I wasn't able to find any previous mention of this, but what if someone decides they didn't want to flag a post? Can we have a feature that lets people change their mind if they flag something? I say this after reconsidering flagging my own supposed double post

AskMe should be a ‘the commenter didn’t read the question’ flag.

Flag feature | In addition to "fantastic post" I would like to have the option of flagging posts "hilarious."

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?

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?

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?

Idea: Add links to a person's fantastic posts/comments/answers to their profile pages, as a kind of personal scoreboard.
Been wondering how to give people "attaboys" for good commentary and answers. Why not list these accomplishments on their profile pages? I did some searches, and the idea has been proposed before, but I can't find a similar suggestion that's more recent than four years ago.
Profiles already have links to a person's posts, and if I drill down I can see which ones have been flagged as fantastic -- so why not put this front and center on the profiles?

Flags aren't redirecting back to the thread (at least for me).
Firefox 1.0.4 (OSX)
(It's probably a simple fix, but it does mean that all those entertaining MeTa callouts and meetups that I had planned will have to wait until at least next week. You're all on notice).

I just flagged an AskMe answer as "fantastic" for the first time, and I'm curious...and then what happens? What is the purpose of this feature?

Two people have flagged this thread, saying (or implying) that it goes against Metafilter policy. Forgive me for not ready the policy very closely, but I don't see what is wrong with this kind of thing. What do you folks think?

It's possible for an AskMeFi poster to mark responses as best answers. It's possible for anyone to flag an answer as a fantastic comment. Why not amalgamate the two and have all the top answers in one place? Then, why not highlight all comments flagged as fantastic in AskMeFi, MetaFilter and MetaTalk the way best answers are currently highlighted in AskMeFi?

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

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.

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.
