Link to contacts' favorites? May 16, 2006 11:03 AM   Subscribe

My Favorites Pony - Love the favorites. How about adding into the contacts section a "jump to contacts' favorites" link?

I was thinking of doing a "recent favorites from your contacts" listing on the contacts page. Or did you want links to jump to their favorites?

How many favorites will a contact have? I'd see it as working analagously to "jump to contributions from contacts".

I was thinking of showing the last 20 posts/comments that your contacts marked as favorites. It'd certainly help find new interesting stuff to read if you've got dozens of contacts reading the site.

I like "recent favorites from your contacts" better. Seems less likely to overwhelm. Would you be able to walk backwards in time through their favorites too?

Is it possible that we will ever get a way to view the top 100 favourites or some such thing — a list of the most often marked favourites?

yeah, for sure, a popular favorites is coming.

I like the favorites thing, but I don't care to see who else counts a post as a favorite, especially at the top of a post. I wish we could turn that off.

I agree with goatdog. Any greasemonkey coders who can help?

I will be "turning that off" soon.

btw, today's work in progress:
