Dude, where's my Favorites? March 7, 2010 8:10 AM   Subscribe

Did someone turn-off the Favorites in this thread?

I was writing a comment for the Ars Technica/Ad-Blocking thread. When I clicked to preview, I saw that all the links for Favoriting and Flagging had disappeared throughout the thread. They were there when I first read the thread (and, in fact, had favorited a post.) Favorites and Flags are still working for other threads.

Anyone else seeing this?

You can't favorite or flag a post when you're in preview mode. As soon as you post the comment they'll all come back again.

Ah, that would make sense, too.

Same thing happens in preview mode across all sites, presumably to prevent confusion and redundancies.

Ah, In all this time, I had never noticed that behavior before. I suppose that makes sense. Guess I should refrain from posting after the morphine has kicked-in.

Feel free to close this thread, please.

The preview page, yeah, does not have all the amenities of the main view. You should see all the faving action back in place once you actually hit post on your comment.
