Usernames on the 'who favorited this post' page January 18, 2008 9:38 AM   Subscribe

Minor usability quibble: When you're looking at who favorites a post, and click a username, it shows their favorites instead of showing their profile page, like every other linked username on the site does. Maybe a different link to show their favorites from that page?

Yeah, I should probably change that. I think the original thinking was you might want to know what else they favorited so I tried to save a step and take you right to that instead of dumping onto their userpage, but I could see how that's confusing. I'll change it.

Hooray - this has always bothered me as it adds an unnecessary step to my daily stalkings.

I like having a direct link to see their favorites, too. Not sure what that should look like though. -- empath(favorites)?

Use a caret—that's everybody's 'favourite' notation. empath^.

At this point (with Matt changing it), you'd be just one click away on said user's page to their faves list anyhow, though.

When I click on another user's name, I would like them to receive a short, sharp shock.

You do realize that with each of these changes we get one step closer to Intelligent Design?

Since we're talking about minor useability kibbles, and this one was hungrily snapped up by Matt before it even hit the floor, I'd like to take this opportunity to toss out one of my own: Sometimes it really hurts my poor heart that there's no appropriate forum here for grading the mods' deletion explanations. Recently, jessamyn deleted the That About Wraps It Up For Science thread with the following explanation: don't pick this fight here. don't LOL this XIANS here either. Thanks. -- jessamyn *BUZZ* Wrong! The correct deletion explanation was "That About Wraps It Up For This Subject." We would also have accepted, "That About Wraps It Up For This Post," "That About Wraps It Up For This Thread," "Kirk, out," and "For fucks sake, enough already!"

In theory, people could comment on puke & cry's blog.

How about "That About LOLs It Up For XIANS"?

I got nothin'.

That would totally dull the thrill of using a claim that there's no appropriate place for saying something as a passive-aggressive mechanism for saying that very thing in an inappropriate place. Jeez! Killjoy!

There aren't even tumbleweeds rolling through the empty streets of Deleted Thread, more's the pity. What, a comment every 60 days, perhaps, p&c? More people should comment there, if only to get a proverbial boot in when the mods are too efficient.

The - symbol should issue a short, sharp, shock. The + symbol should be hooked up to the latest, state-of-the-art, teledildonics

Hush up, Agent McDermott! The - icon is only visible if you're logged into Cabal Mode. I mean, it's never visible, I mean, it doesn't exist... I mean, there is no - icon... I mean, CabalMod, please nuke this thread.

When I bite into a Peppermint Patty.....I get the cool sensation that I am the only one on-line
and when I click on a user's name, they can feel the cool creepy sensation of me trolling their very being.

You mean they don't?

I've been wasting so much time :(

Man, and I thought I had a lot of time on my hands.
