Bug: "Favorited by others" pages may have an issue sometimes when you try to go to the next page of favorited comments. I'm not sure what causes it, but for example: mine no worky, but mathowie's does.

Matt is counting pages as (total number of favorites/comments he shows per page). Comments per page is as constant, 30, so number of pages is calculated as (total number of favorites/30).

But a comment can be favorited by more than one user; when that happend the comemnt is still shown only once.

Here's an example. say only onew comment you made was favorited, but it was favorited by 300 people.

Then Matt would calculate total pages as (300/30) = 10, but there's only be one comment (and thus one page) to show. So pages 2 through 10 would show up blank, just like your page 2.

Matt can fix this easily, by adding count distinct (and, depending on his DDL, a join) to his SQL.

I'm about to replace that savedfavorites page with a new one tomorrow.

Now that's solved, can anyone explain to me why naturesgreatestmiracle doesn't have a 'What's the deal with your nickname?' bit showing?

Oh! forget that. I realise now that it's dropped if they don't fill out the field. I had to ask to realise though.

I just want to point out how disappointed I was with Spider-Man 3. garbage. not quite, but almost total garbage.

On this topic, both of the "favourited by your contacts" pages (usercontacts and friendsfavorites) seem to only include a tiny fraction of what they should, at least for me.

And I'm not getting favorited nearly as often as I think I ought.

Crap, you saw through my ruse. Well, I guess that's why you get the big bucks gift cards.
