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 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?

Is there a way to look at popular AskMe questions in a particular category
, either in the recent past or over time? The infodumpster almost
does this, but not quite. [more inside]

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]

Is the Popular Favorites stuff determined on the fly, or do the posts and comments get an invisible tag stating that they've made it to the page? [more inside]

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?

How can I access popular comments on the non-mobile interface?

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!

Has anyone ever looked at which posts/comments have been most favorited by men, and which by women? [more inside]

At present the 'Popular
' tag is sorted by number of faves, but wouldn't it be cool if we could see which threads are receiving the most input, too? Input = comments.

Can I have a pony that shows me the most popular / favorited AskMe questions by a specific day, week, month, or tag. If I could, I would ride that pony like I stole it.

There are about six different places where favorites live, and I often find myself confused as hell as to the differences between the various tabs and links. [more inside]

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. Like the blue and the other subsites have. Might this be possible?

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 (of all-time) is, well, one of my favorites. Is there a way to see even more posts that were favorited than are returned to the single result page?

It's nice that we have popular favorites for ask.me for the last 7 days
and the last thirty days
, but can we get all time favorites as well? (also links to the 7 days and 30 days on the popular questions page.)

What projects have gotten the most votes, ever? Can we have a "popular projects" page?

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 ...

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.

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)

Ok, so now the entire popular favorite page is backwards. Somebody delete that backwards day post, and all the comments with it. Its a great post but it's messing everything up!

So, we have a 'Popular Favourites' feature, and I love it. However, it's limited to the last 24 hours. Is there any chance of expanding that period of time?

Low priority feature request: A "Favorites Hall of Fame", including things like Most favorited comments by week/month/year, Most favorited posts by week/month/year, all split between Mefi/MeTa/Axe, and even a list of users who have had the most personal contributions marked as favorites by others.

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 "X
filter!!!!" comments by doing something like that.
Should we actively avoid posting things we've seen on other, highly popular link-oriented blogs?
