My infodumpster skills are not sufficient to find other members, like Wenestvedt, who favorite posts and comments generously, but it makes the place nicer and more fun. Thanks! [more inside]
A way to favor usernames would be awesome. [more inside]
I always assumed that favoriting a post or a comment on this site is similar to "liking" on other platforms. To signal approval or sympathy. But it also has a sort of bookmarking functionality, doesn't it? Which seems to imply a more neutral function. How is the favorite button intended to be used, and how do people here actually use it? And do you notice things like favorite counts on people's profiles? Does that influence your opinion of them?
I'd like to thank Fig for bestowing upon me my 50,000th Favorited. That's all. Happy weekend!
Deleted posts can be flagged but not favorited. Shouldn't it be the other way around? [more inside]
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, in honor of Valentine's Day, I want to hear about something you love! A book, a painting, a person, a crayon color, a smell, a TV show -- anything at all as long as you love it! [more inside]
"I know more about a person from the jokes they like than any belief they profess," commented lazycomputerkids in the thread on right-wing comedy. So, MeFites - tell us about yourselves! [more inside]
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week's conversation starter: What is your favorite word, and why? [more inside]
On our user pages, the two numbers tracked for favorites count different things. The first one is a count of how many individual comments I have favorited. The second number is a count of how many times everyone has favorited a comment of mine. The description of that second number, "Favorited by others," is sort of misleading, I think, because it doesn't count individual comments the way the first number does. [more inside]
Is it possible to tease a total favourites to total comments ratio out of the info dumpster? I'm pretty sure stevewoz was at the top of that list however his recent comment might have put someone else above him. [more inside]
When the bulk of answers in an AskMe thread go unnoticed because of heavily favorited answers toward the top of the thread [more inside]
I really enjoy the part of the sidebar where it tells you when a contact's comments reach a certain number of favorites. Is there any way to set a favorites threshold for every user, not just ones on your contact list? [more inside]
I would love to have a "random" button that is restricted only to my list of favorite posts. Is this feasible? [more inside]
You know that one comment you read once, maybe about the kindergarten teacher who speciously reassures you, "I always put on a condom before I teach?" Maybe the all-time perfect Ask Me flowchart for reconciling your career decisions with your sexual kinks? [more inside]
What is the longest amount of time you've seen between posting a comment and someone marking it as a favorite? [more inside]
Whether we use them as bookmarks or +1s, many/most of us have multiple things marked as favo(u)rite. But let's get real here for a second: if you really had to name one favo(u)rite post and/or one favo(u)rite comment -- right now, that's it, that's all you get -- what would it be?
What's the best way to use your favorites? How do you make the most of them? Looking for tips, tricks, hacks, organization methods, the works. [more inside]
When you unfavorite, it hurts people. This is not a victimless crime. [more inside]
Are search and favorite broken? [more inside]
Favorites and best answers. How about when you mark something as "best answer" it also gets an automatic "favorite?" [more inside]
Pony request: mouseover that shows who favorited a favorited comment. As opposed to having to click through to a list.
Is there a way to search my favorites for comments I have favorited by a specific user? [more inside]
Hello everyone! I got bored today and wanted to read some witty, short comments, so I used the infodump to sort every short comment on MeFi by its favorites. [more inside]
One year ago today, a metafilter shitstorm was brewing, when the mods inadvertently hit upon a collective hot button... favorites. [more inside]
Pony request: On the front pages of each site (MeFi, AskMe, etc.), would it be possible to change the little plus-es to little minus-es when you add a post as a favorite? Or is there a reason this won't work/is a bad idea?
My account doesn't remember that I favorited something with my phone [more inside]
I've been really enjoying "lifehack"-type AskMe posts lately - questions about how to change one's own habits to be better at day-to-day life situations and challenges (How do I become one of those people who makes everyone they talk to feel great? from Chrysalis is a good new one). What are some of your favorites? [more inside]

Proper "favorite" usage? [more inside]
Not sure if this is a site bug or a Firefox thing, but figured I'd report it. Here's what happened just now [more inside]
Why can I favorite via Recent Activity, but not Flag?
Hermitosis, you got some 'splainin' to do! [more inside]
It's possible to find the most favorited post of all time but is it possible to find the most favorited comment of all time? Or a ranking system that does something similar to the post system (week, 30 days, all time) for comments?
Pony request: An individual favourite posts rss-feed? [more inside]
PonyFilter: when I favorite an Ask thread, it should appear in 'My Ask'
Can we search our favorites by user name? If not, can we get that feature added? [more inside]
A thought: how about adding a post specific "favorite" tool for the blue (et al). Kind of an open "mark as best answer" for individual fpps. [more inside]
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.
Pony request: When previewing comments, can we please still be able to favorite & flag other comments in the thread? Or is there a reason otherwise?
I favourited a comment in AskMe that was later deleted. I'm NOT writing this to complain about the deletion, for while I may not agree with it I can understand why it was removed, however the comment was long enough so I can not read all (most) of it on my favorites page and I kind of would like to be able to reread it as I thought it was fairly well written. [more inside]
Two requests: sort threads by number-of-favorites, and a bit of social linking in profiles. [more inside]
Pony request: being able to favorite comments from the Recent Activity page? [more inside]
Help me tame this pony...ok, so I'm a bit addicted to adding favourites. I know I have a problem, but gosh darn it, why does there have to be so much great stuff!? Does anyone have any scripts, apps, anything that can help me deal with the backlog of my favourites? I've googled and searched but haven't checked Projects as much - has someone created something there to deal with favourites? It would be neat to be able to export them or bulk add them to del.icio.us, or something...export them to an XML file (if that's possible) or CFM or whatever format and somehow create a hack to manage them. Does something to manage them exist? Is it on the horizon? Should it be? Discuss. Thanks muchly.
Why not make a page that ranks users based on how many "favorites" their comments, FPPs, and questions garner? I'm not sure hard how this would be to create, but it might be a nice incentive to post quality items. Also, it would highlight some of the dedicated, and/or imaginative members of Mefi. Just a thought.
