Weird Favorite Behavior? July 18, 2006 10:09 AM   Subscribe

Couple of issues here. I just accidentally marked a post as a favorite (stupid new mouse). Could the "favorited" confirmation page include a link to my favorites management list, or better yet, an undo? Also, from this this favorited confirmation page, the "Return to post" link is broken.

Er, sorry, not confirmation page, I meant the "users marked this as a favorite" page. Misfiring neurons.

There is a remove button on the bottom of the post or comment you want to remove.

Actually, I have this problem also - but with accidentally voting for projects, not posts. Accurate mousing is a bitch.

On the posts, I often accidentally hit "+ add to favorites" rather than "!" because it's bigger, and I click faster than I think.

I heard there's one user who can click faster than their shadow.

One time I clicked right between the "fave" and the "!" and a naked picture of Matt appeared.

If you fave a comment that with a 1, a 3, or a 6 as the last digit, you get fireworks.

Legend has it that if you read every Metafilter thread ever to the very end, you get a cruddy animation of a spaceship launching.

Oh, and a Night Watch-esque painting, but in comic book style. There's a guy on a recumbent bike with an iBook. Another man with glasses and a Mediterreanean demeanor is enjoying a martini, saying "what is it with these boors that they cannot comprehend that the difference between high and low culture is none", as another man with a hat replies "Hey, every utterance is a cromulent one, you know". There's a man in a chicken suit on the left, eating kimchi, while in the background sails a longboat with a couple of rambunctuous kids. On the right, a man shouting loudly about politics, but it's difficult to take him seriously at first glance as he's about half the size of a typical adult male. Next to him is a guy with a clipboard, taking notes of the gathering and singing the news. In the foreground, an elephant that says "my name is God" and a strange fellow with some sort of gilled vertebrate protruding over the edge of his belt. Another man is trying to have intercourse with said animal. Next to the chicken stands a guy with a hand missing, boasting that his mum was on Xena once. Smack in the middle is a blue-collared, beer-swigging guy burning a picture of Morrissey. Just outside of this scene are a painter who insists he's not a theatrical matriarch, an undead figure in a spacesuit, an intangible person who's being very verbose, a girl keeping an eye on everyone while wearing a "books are cool" t-shirt, a perpendicular person saying "maybe I am who you think I am", a fairly run-of-the-mill guy pissing over everyone, a four-headed creature, one of whose heads wears the mask of a Scottish woman, the rest I will not go into, a talkative fellow with a reddish shine, a guy with a spot-free rose-coloured appendage singing Christmas songs with the words in the wrong order, the guy that John Lewis murdered, two common kitchen items calling each other names, a shifty bloke, a nonstandard punctuation mark, an orificely challenged person, a Springfield resident in a revealing tracksuit, a tearful vomiter, a rose-coloured fighter of evil, and a manufacturer of bathroom fixtures.

There, I saved you some trouble.

Um, yeah. Whatever.

...and a poop-coloured animal foot, standing around being derisively indifferent.

Better now, brownpau?
