My front page contact sidebar is no longer showing posts by contacts that have received the threshold of 12+ favorites, plus other odd behavior. [more inside]
The last five favorited posts from my contacts is borked. It shows that the last favorite was added over a year ago. But, for example, the contact shown (grumblebee), has favorited a bunch of stuff since then, including a post today.
The sitewide Recent favorites page (not the tab) says that it lists the most popular posts within the last 24 hours, but appears to be using some other algorithm. Posts (examples: 1 2 3) and comments (examples: 1 2 3) that have received zero favorites in the last 24 hours are listed on it.
This has probably been asked for before ... could there be a way to list items you have posted, either posts or comments that have been favorited within the last X amount of time? I have noticed that the favorite count goes up by one or two on my user page, but it's sometimes not obvious what has changed, and it ends up being some post I made 4 months ago.
How much flak will I catch if I start using "." to mark threads that I want to track on my "My Comments" page? I ask because there are several interesting threads that I want to monitor but in which I don't necessarily wish to post a message.
