Contacts Favorites Bug? March 19, 2008 12:03 AM   Subscribe

Last Five Favorite posts from ___'s contacts & Last Five Favorite comments from ___'s contacts does not match up with Favorite posts from ___'s contacts & Favorite comments from ___'s contacts. I guess it's vaguely possible that this is because "Last" works on when something was favorited as opposed to when the favorited thing was posted, but the discrepancy is pretty large and I think there's a bug there.

Last Five Favorite posts from ___'s contacts

What's up with this secrecy?

Hardly secrecy considering where the link goes. Just trying for generic-ness.

yeah, something is up with that, we'll have to take a look at it.

While we are at it, I have given one whole favorite, but the count shows as 2. Is this a bug, or a way to help me not look stingy with favorites?

You've given two whole favorites, FS; one is to a comment, the other to a post. There's two different tabs in the fave view.

I've heard that Fuzzy Skinner is stingy with favorites and will not favorite this post.

DAMMIT cortex, there you go ruining my reputation. No favorite for you!

By which I mean... thanks for the clarification!

No sweat; it catches people every once in a while. I wonder if it'd be easy for us to add fave count numbers to those tabs, to make it clearer...

Oh, man. While you guys are hammering on the usercontacts page, you think you could do something about the colorized section backgrounds? I use the plain theme, and either the MeTa and AskMe background colors need to go or the link color needs to change... plain theme's blue links on the green and grey backgrounds are simply harrogotha (there, I said it again). It kinda works with Music, but then the grey text is awfully dark.

Truth be told, though, I rarely look at this particular page, since it's rather a cul-de-sac of the user experience. No tabby love for usercontact?

Oh, the clashing plain vs default theme thing also happens on the Recent Activity on My Favorite Posts tab, wherein the divs containing my own comments get a background of #0077aa. Doesn't seem to matter if they're MeFi, AskMe or MeTa comments, either. All Blue.
