The horror! The horror!

I have reached 666 favorites on Friday the 13th. Am I going to die?

Strange things are afoot in the sidebar, dude.

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]

Why are Popular Favorites scrambled?

I don't usually have time to read all of the questions on AskMeFi, so I rely on the Popular Favorites (24 hours) tab to screen the submitted questions for those found most interesting by other MeFites. The problem is that because of the way they are sorted I sometimes miss some.
Would it be possible to sort them chronologically by the time and date of submission, the most recent being at the top of the list? That way I could scroll down the list until I get to the question I remember from my last browsing session. What do others think? Thanks!

That psychedelic elephant is FANTASTIC!

+ --> - ?

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?

Listing Comments by Favorites count

I was going through the huge "You were doing it Wrong" thread on AskMe when it occurred to me that it would be great if we could list the comments in order of "most favorited". I would have seen herrdoctor's amazing story right away instead of missing it first time around.

Good Advice!

Summon Pony of Wisdom: The references to Miko's awesome comment in this post got me thinking. How would one go about retrieving every comment under a certain category with a certain number of favorites or higher? Like if I wanted every "Human Relations" AskMe comment with 200+ favorites?

I recently posted an AskMe which received no responses. I realize (and knew at the time), the question I asked was quite narrow and didn't expect many responses (it had to do with an esoteric business management theory). So no responses doesn't really surprise me. Yet 5 users marked it as a favorite. I'm interested in finding out why people marked it as a favorite. Is it acceptable MeTa-quette to MeFi-mail them and ask if they're willing to share why they favorited it?

eccnineten's favorite bad habit overcome

Hesitate to credit evil when foolishness will do. I see all sorts of maliciousness attributed to my past self-favoriting. Here is the equally unflattering but true reason that used to happen. I thought it was a good way to get back to my comments. If I'd opened my eyes I would have seen that feature is already built in to metafilter. If I've queered the stats, my appologies and please tell me how to fix the problem. One email to me might have prevented all those comments about me. Sorry again, and know I have quit that mistaken habit. Metafilter is not a nest I want to soil.

Can we tag favorites, please? (Redux)

It's been about a year since I last posted asking for favorite tagging to be introduced. In that post, Matt said he thought that this was a feature that should be added, going so far as to do a mock-up of how it would work. He also said to bug him about its implementation "in a year after I've forgotten we should add it." I'm taking him up on that offer. [more inside]
