Hooray for highlights!

When did you start putting that little highlight bar on AskMe comments that are from the original asker? Kickass! Thank you... [more inside]

The Numinati

Seeing this response by the original poster made me recall this little pony request. The poor little thing has been left outside in the rain for a fortnight. [more inside]

This is not the answer you are looking for.

Is using the "best answer" function to clarify the original question or to offset the OP's own comments from the pack really the best use of that feature?

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).

Highlight AskMe responses by OP

In AskMeFi, there is first the question. Then maybe 5 replies down there is a response by the person who asked the question. But they don't often identify themselves as the original poster, and it is not always obvious that it is the original poster and if I am down the page I have forgotten their username. Is there a way to highlite responses by the original poster? Or a way to make them stand out?

Pony Request: Highlight 'fantastic comment' flagged posts like AskMe's 'best answers'

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?

Specially marked AskMe answers by the original asker

I haven't been around too long, but I did a search for this and it didn't come up....
Does anybody like the idea of the OP in an AskMe thread "standing out" from the rest of the comments, much like a best answer? That way, I could scroll through the comments and quickly see any follow-ups.

agressive deleting while editing

While editing a comment, highlighting a word and hitting backspace deletes not the word, but the whole comment.

Highlighting User Posts

How about highlighting the threads on the front page that the logged-in user has posted in? Going to your user info to see all your recent comments is a bit cumbersome. Something like making the "n new" in "N comments (n new)" a different color and pointing that link to your most recent comment in the thread.
