On the favorites page, could we show what user created the comment/post?
Could we add tags to the favorites page?

For example, I've marked this comment by jessamyn as a favorite, but when I go to my favorites page, it doesn't really give me any idea of content or intent. If it included the "posted by jessamyn" line, that'd be awesome.

If I could add tags such as vulgar, chickensex, bestpostever, etc, that'd be awesomer.

I'm not sure about tags, but showing something like "favorite tags" might be worthwhile; not the tags that you use frequently as we already have that. I mean the tags that are most often used on the posts you tend to favorite.

Of course, in the interest of speed an uptime, that should be a pretty low priority, as I gather the tag database is a large-ish burden.

I can't really see the need to tag our favourites, but it might be nice to have an 'other users who marked this as a favourite' list under each post on the favourites page. Spelling the word 'favourite' correctly would also be a boon ;-)

Tagging is a possible future feature. Adding
(and 4 other users) will definitely come soon. I could add posted by username to both comments and posts -- that's a good idea.

I'm working on a recent popular favorites page so I have a lot on my plate at the moment. Give me a week or two to complete the entire favorites feature set.

How about seperating AskMe, MeTa, and MeFi favorites?
