Popular posts period pony?

Pretty sure in the last 7 days, 30 days, all time was a great breakdown 5 years ago, but now, maybe last quarter, biannual, 12 months, biennial, lustrum would give us a better range to surf through. (I'm sure the community would come up with better words than I did.) Currently the gap between 30 days & all time whisks a lot of quite recent but not in the last month very nice stuff under the cyber rug. I would also like to see it applied to the categories (in Ask me). For example, there are 7202 posts to Questions in the Clothing, Beauty, & Fashion category. But how to find the most loved?

Most popular AskMe posts of 2012

OK, it being year-end and all, I thought I'd go have a look at the most popular AskMe posts in the last year... only to find that I can't really filter down like that (leastways not so I can tell)... so I decided to put a list together myself, and make it my first post on the grey! 30 would be a nice, round number, but I could only find 29. Please enjoy responsibly! [more inside]

i want to see the most popular posts from six months ago

I seem to remember having the option to view more than just the week's popular posts. I think it was most popular of 24 hours/ week/ all time or something. Now I can't do it. I can only see the week's. Am I imagining things? Have I suddenly become incompetent? Or has this changed and I just didn't know about it for whatever reason?

Popular Favorites Usability

I love the Popular Favorites page but maybe it could use a little work? It seems like it would be easier for people to follow if the trucated comments had a [Read More] link. Also, the titles of the posts on the left don't look like links, they are the same color as the text, maybe a [Read] link or color change or something there too? [more inside]

Tell us about the old days, Papa Cortex.

Today I idly clicked on the 10 years ago today link on the front page and was revelling in the innocence of the fledgling metafilter from back in the era when a busy day saw a dozen FPPs and a really active thread might get nearly a hundred comments. I was startled to see a thread with 1729 comments. (By comparison, the initial 'Plane crashed into the World Trade Center' FPP three weeks later did not even break 500.) Alas, the link to the metafilter parody in the FPP is dead. Does anyone have it archived anywhere?

Why are Popular Favorites scrambled?

I don't usually have time to read all of the questions on AskMeFi, so I rely on the Popular Favorites (24 hours) tab to screen the submitted questions for those found most interesting by other MeFites. The problem is that because of the way they are sorted I sometimes miss some.
Would it be possible to sort them chronologically by the time and date of submission, the most recent being at the top of the list? That way I could scroll down the list until I get to the question I remember from my last browsing session. What do others think? Thanks!

Comment linkability at MeFiMu?

Pony request: Envisioning a golden, glowing future in which any number of other (that is to say, non-dick punching) songs at MeFi Music get the kind of comment action that "the most Favorited track of ALL TIME!" has gotten, I'd like to see individual comment linkability in MeFiMu threads.

The foods on my plate canNOT touch one another.

MOST POPULAR PONY!! I want more functionality for sorting and filtering through the Popular Favorites. I'd like to have a box that allows me to choose: "Most Popular [posts, comments] on [Green, Blue, Black, Grey,...] in the past [n] days." (e.g. so that I could see all the popular AskMe posts side by side, over a longer timeframe, and without them being mixed in with the FPP's; or so that I could view the most listened to tracks on MeMu; or, or, or.)

Popular favorites results expansion

Best of MeFi / 'Comment Dividers' Error

Two things (and yes, I'm cheating). First, I'm wondering if there's any mechanism out there that allows us to look at a "best of" for Mefi and Ask Mefi. Popular favorites in the last 24 hours immediately leaps to mind, and would indeed be ideal, but I'm looking for an RSS feed, and Mathowie says that's a no-go in past MeTas. (Any chance we could change your mind, Matt?) I hear there used to be a third-party blog that did it, but I don't think that's around any longer. Perhaps the sidebar feed ... at least for Mefi? Still, the sidebar is like a "best of best of Mefi." Second, and on an entirely different subject, when the MeFi comment dividers Greasemonkey script is used, it throws off permalinks to comments ... if you click on a comment permalink somewhere else (i.e. a Recent Activity page or a Favorites page), you're at first dropped at the anchor for the comment on the page, but when the comment dividers are applied, it bounces away. Anyone have an idea how that effect might be avoided? I'm more of a idiot-splicer than a programmer, so I really have no idea how to change that script to avoid the effect. Thanks in advance for any advice or answers on both questions ...

24/7

Ooh, I'm so excited! My very first pedantic MetaTalk post! The text of the link on the user favorites page says "You can also view a list of the most popular in the last 24 hours," but the actual Popular Favorites page lists the "most favorited posts in the past 7 days." Do I get a prize?!?

My Favorite Pony

On the blue, it's a tad odd that "Popular" and "Popular Favorites" are different. I suggest they be combined into a single page which has both FPPs and comments, and also has the (7 days, 30 days, all time) option from the second link.

0 users marked this as a favorite

When I click on 'popular favorites', the number of favorites for each post is consistently wrong. I think the number I see corresponds with how many favorites the post had when I last clicked it. This question feels familiar to me - I think this has been discussed here before - but as I mentioned earlier, I have a difficult time searching for stuff here. If you want to point me to a previous discussion on this, feel free. Thanks.

batshitinsane one of mefi's most popular tags

Huh. While reading Occasional Superheroine, I came across this post, in which she discusses her reaction to her blog's MetaFilter appearance, which was tagged as "batshitinsane." As this particular tag has a special place in my heart, I was surprised to see that batshitinsane is now one of MetaFilter's most popular tags, with over 200 posts tagged as such. My baby's all grown up now!

Why Recent Favorites Activity?

Is this an Ask Mefi Popular Favorites bug? I pulled up the page this morning and this creepy thread was nestled right under a bunch of threads from 1/26 and 1/25, with a bunch more from 1/25 following it. Is it because a few people recently favorite-d it (it says 5 favorites on the main pop page), and if so, how did they all find it just now? Were a bunch of people recently searching for the answer to this question on Ask MeFi? (shudder)

Too popular for MeFi?

What's the etiquette on posting stuff you've just seen at somewhere like BoingBoing? So far this morning, there's been 2 posts that appeared on BB in the last week. I saw them when they first came up there, and thought, "hey, this is neat, people on Mefi would like this," but then decided against posting them here. I know that sometimes one can encounter a flurry of "Xfilter!!!!" comments by doing something like that.

Should we actively avoid posting things we've seen on other, highly popular link-oriented blogs?
