Testing Inline Flag Notes

We're testing out a new way to flag posts and comments that lets people include a note to moderators if they'd like to. It's enabled for this thread only so you can see how it might work. [more inside]

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]

I'd love to know what others think is fantastic.

Pony request. Could we have a page view that would show threads and comments that have been flagged as "fantastic"? [more inside]

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.

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?

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?

What is the purpose of flagging answers as "fantastic"?

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?

Anonymous Flags?

Are the "[!]" flags anonymous? [MI]

Flag Request

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.

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.

Flag the troll

Could we get a "troll" option for flagging?

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"?

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?
