To people who have done this; why did you create Front Page Post(s) on MetaFilter? The motivations are interesting in themselves, and may also provide positive reasons for people to cross the rubicon from lurker to poster. [more inside]
Grease my monkey, guvnor: Greasemonkey scripts get talked about a lot in Metatalk comments, and they seem pretty useful. I would like to ask our more Greasemonkey-oriented friends to recommend the best ones and discuss their experience of installing and using them. [more inside]
Re AskMefi: Can I mark a question as a favorite only on the main page, and not on the question page? Sometimes I don't know it's a favorite until I read some answers. But it appears I need to go back to the question list to make it a fave. Thx!
Can we get a keyboard shortcut for adding favorites? I use the j/k and m keyboard shortcuts all the time, but when I want to favorite a post or comment, I need to reach for the mouse. This will not do! [more inside]

I would like to request a feature to distinguish favorites (answers/posts I want to go back and read) vs "promotes" (ability to vote for a post/answer without adding a "nthing" comment). [more inside]
Even better than an advice column binge: how to search for most favorited/commented AskMes in a particular category
Is there a way to look at popular AskMe questions in a particular category, either in the recent past or over time? The infodumpster almost does this, but not quite. [more inside]

As a follow-up to my previous MeTa, I've been running a little Mefi experiment where I strictly use favorites as references. Please join me inside for some bean cake and snark counseling. [more inside]
Can't swipe to favorite anymore. Did y'all disable that function? Or is it on my end? [more inside]
Have you ever favorited yourself, i.e. a comment or a post? Why did you do it, and what happened? Something makes me feel it is a no-no, but just curious.
I made Griphus and Greg Nog race to 30,000 faves. And the winner is... [more inside]
Around a year ago there was an idea floated about favorite categorization. I think that this would be a great feature for the site. Is it still in the "too ambitious" pile of site features, or have the coders taken another look at it since then? [more inside]
"You've hit your favorites limit for the day" - I have favorited 16 comments today. Nothing I've tried (cookies, etc.) has fixed it. Anyone else having this problem? (Previously)
If I flag a comment, I can choose one of several default options. One of the options is "fantastic comment", and the others are terrible. Why can't I choose "fantastic" when I favorite a comment? [more inside]
Pony Request: Additional Posts and Comments on the "Popular" page. [more inside]
A few other threads have asked about the error message "The page is still loading, please wait to add favorites." and have found solutions in turning off NoScript or AdBlock. I ran into the same issue this week and, after doing some investigating, found it was specifically necessary to make sure the cloudfront.net domain was "Allowed" in AdBlock. [more inside]

An Infodump Question™ and followup to this post: What is the average number of favorites per post received for each of the various MeFi subsites? Per comment? Average number of favorites given and received for the userbase?

What are the best single-link posts in MeFi history? [more inside]
Pony: a 'best-answer' kind of highlight on the comment that currently has the most favorites, at any given time, in any given thread. Better yet, what if each comment actually had a "best comment in thread" link next to the "+", and the comment currently with the most votes for "best" would be highlighted in the thread? [more inside]
Can't favorite anything on AskMe. Clicking a + takes me to the top of the page and does not add a favorite. No problems on MetaTalk or the blue. [more inside]
Bookmarking vs reputation - What is the purpose of the 'favorites' functionality? [more inside]
I feel like I am probably missing a very obvious answer to this question, but is there a way to see which users have most frequently favorited my comments? [more inside]
I love the Popular Favorites page but maybe it could use a little work? It seems like it would be easier for people to follow if the trucated comments had a [Read More] link. Also, the titles of the posts on the left don't look like links, they are the same color as the text, maybe a [Read] link or color change or something there too? [more inside]
Is the Popular Favorites stuff determined on the fly, or do the posts and comments get an invisible tag stating that they've made it to the page? [more inside]
I wish there was a way to remove a post from "Activity on My Favorites"...without actually removing it from my favorites. [more inside]
Please space out the favorites/flagging buttons. It is far too easy to fat-finger the [+] on an iPad. [more inside]
Good morning, MetaFilter. At some point in the last twelve hours, I received my 10,000th favorite. [more inside]
How can I access popular comments on the non-mobile interface?
There was a comment in MeTa a little while back about what the amount of favorites on a post/comment signifies. "0-7: no one actually noticed your comment." Maybe a month back? Anyone see this?
Any MeFites check the member number of the people favoriting them – feeling chuffed if they have 4 digits, whereas your eyes might glaze over if they have 6 digits*? [more inside]

My Little Pony Request: please consider adding Favorites to the Mobile Site menu. [more inside]
Why is the number of favorites I have received dropping every once in a while? Can members unfavorite one of my posts?
Is there a way to strip links from comments and posts I've favorited (for uploading into delicious or similar)? I tend to use favorites as bookmarks, but now I have thousands of favorites and no way to organize them.
Is there any way to view Popular Favorites for a given tag- for example, sorting posts tagged with 'books' in order from most to least favorited? If not, could there be? [more inside]
I have reached 666 favorites on Friday the 13th. Am I going to die?
Lately I've been noticing strange behavior in my contact activity on the sidebar. Older posts are showing up as "So and So had an answer with 12 favorites!" but the comments linked are old and have hundreds of favorites. [more inside]
