Missing favorites? September 28, 2006 1:58 AM   Subscribe

A lot of my favorites aren't showing up on my favorites page, even though I do show up as having favorited (favored?) them if I go to the thread they were on. Am I missing something?

Mathowie has subcontracted the favoriting engine out to Diebold. They're looking into it.

Has something changed in the favouriting code? Hovering now produces something in the style of "http://www.metafilter.com/contribute/add_favorite.mefi?sitetype_id=5&link_ID=12775&author_id=25430". It could be just me, though.

Oh, OK, I see that Matt deleted that thread.

And yet, I've favorited deleted comments before, and I can still see them. But if I've favorited undeleted comments on a deleted thread, I can't? That's inconsistent...
