Did the favorites counts just hiccup? [more inside]
Tiny favorites pony: a preference setting to show favorites only in Ask? [more inside]
I would like an RSS feed for Ask.Metafilter popular favorites of the last 24 hours. Please. Thank you.
The flip-side of "Most favorited posts of the year": Last year, I typed up a little list of comments I particularly liked that I thought were overlooked. It was fun! I just went through my favorites from 2009, and did so again. I would like this to be a thread where you share comments that you liked, but which you feel may have gotten little notice from others. [more inside]
Can it be added to see: "Most Favorited Posts in the Past 365 days"? [more inside]
Now that MeFi has over a decade under its belt, can we get "Most Favorited Posts in the Past Year?"
What thread has the highest T number, where T is 'number of favorites given to comments' divided by 'number of comments'? [more inside]
Miniature pony request: The ability to see categories while looking at favorites. [more inside]
Minor Favorites Pony Request: has favorites, lots of favorites, favoritest [more inside]
Our last podcast of the year was recorded on December 11th and covers the last month or so on the sites including the charity drive/raffle and the favorites kerfuffle. It runs about an hour long, with notes inside. [more inside]
In taking the Favorites survey and dipping into the Mike Rowe/TED Talk thread, I discovered something completely new about how I use them. [more inside]
On this activity page, the "more" on the first item links to http://www.metafilter.com/2839866/We-know-what-happened-because-he-said-yes#2839866; unfortunately, we haven't reached 2.8M posts on MetaFilter. Also, the same comment appears as item 3 of the list, but this time the "more" link works (gets to the right comment in the existing thread). [more inside]
November is over, and favorites are back to normal. In addition, we've got a couple related things to mention: a survey about the November exercise and favorites in general, and a couple of new display options for folks who want to alter the default favorites view. [more inside]
Woot! Favorites are back. [more inside]
This is a thread for discussion of November's favorites experiment. [more inside]
WTF? I turned back on favorite counts and now it's back to showing me "has favorites" WHAT GIVES METAFILTER?
I just noticed "has favorites". When did that start and why? Just about every post has favorites, doesn't it? Personally, I liked the old system better. I just read the number of favorites and I knew whether or not I should favorite it too. The way it is now, how am I supposed to know what's good or bad without actually going in and counting them?
Can we vote about this new favorites policy? [more inside]
For the month of November, we're going to try an experiment with how favorites are displayed. [Note: if this whole experiment is driving you crazy, here's a note on reverting the changes.] [more inside]
ProbablyReallyObvious Filter: While perusing the MetaFilter front page, I clicked something that led me to this extremely useful two column layout of popularly favorited comments and links. What did I click on?
Suggestion:We have a tag cloud - how about a favorites cloud? [more inside]
stupid "popular favorite" question of the day: why can't I "add to favorites" from the popular favorites page? OK talk to you later.
Under popular favorites why is there "n favorites in the last 24 hours"? Is that of interest to any of you? I'd rather see " n answers in the last 24 hours", so I know whether or not I should revisit a thread.
There's a bug in the links on the MetaTalk "my favorites" tab. [more inside]
Pony request: We can already sort the posts and comments in search results by date or by relevance. Would it be possible (or even desirable) to sort by the number of favorites each item has? [more inside]
Just the curiosity of a self-obsessed "Favorited by others" watcher: I've noticed, on a couple occasions, my 'favorited by others' number will drop by a couple digits. Not a lot; I think the last time it was from 95 to 93 or something. I'm not favorited often, and I don't think I've had any posts deleted recently, so I find it odd. Can somebody "anti-favorite" you, or are things being deleted in older stuff than I've noticed?
There are about six different places where favorites live, and I often find myself confused as hell as to the differences between the various tabs and links. [more inside]
This is a kinda cool concept applied to MeFi: background bars for posts and comments (based on favorites) [more inside]
I've noticed a particularly pronounced uptick in the number of favorites comments are getting. Has Metafilter become funnier, or more salient? Or, you know.
These two pages have pagination at the bottom. These three pages do not. Can we have the same ability to navigate into the past of "favorited by others" as we do for "favorites from," or would that be a huge pain in the ass?
Another favoriting discussion. With very many users having hunderds, and some thousands of favorites, it can become unweildy navigating favorites. If they are indeed intended as a bookmarking tool, it would be helpful to be able to tag them so we can find things we intend to come back to in the future.
Are favorites broken? I'm trying to add a few this morning and when i click the +, it just sits there saying "adding..." Same in IE and Firefox. Anyone else having this issue?
Some MeFites use favorites as a show of support, while others (like me!) use them predominantly to save interesting posts and are unable to use them in this manner. Would it be at all possible to add some sort of "agree!" or "thanks!" button in order to separate the two functions? [more inside]
With all this discussion about favorites going on lately, can I ask when, if ever, the plan to add the ability to tag your favorites will be implemented, as mentioned by #1 here. [more inside]
Bug report: The preview function is disabling some features. [more inside]
Favoritism is killing Mefi. Please kill favorites. [more inside]
In Monday's "meh" thread I quoted and linked to Sparx's clever 2007 verse on the subject. My comment, which added nothing original, unaccountably picked up some favorates. It may be a small matter but these favorites are surely Sparx's, not mine. Is it a lot of work to reassign 'em?
CAN I HAZ MORE FAVORITES PLEEZE? [more inside]
Can the you guys put some at least put some oak leaf clusters or something on You's profile page - for this? [more inside]
"You hit your favorite limit for the day." WTF? Can someone please tell me why we have a limit, what the limit is, and why the hell it's not in the FAQ? [more inside]
Clicking the plus sign to favorite a comment sends me to the top of the page and doesn't add the favorite. [more inside]
Incredibly minor design detail: Could the [add to favorites] button be switched with [!], so that [add to favorites] is adjacent to 'x people marked this as a favorite'? I'm always hitting the flag button when I want to favorite something because it's right next to favorites. [more inside]
When you click on a "
favorited X times" link, you are taken to a page with the title "
All users marked nnnnn as favorite" (example). Should it not say "
All users who marked nnnnnn as a favorite"? (The in-page text heading is "
X users marked this as a favorite:", FWIW)
What's up with the way favorites are now displayed on Popular Favorites? (See screenshot.) [more inside]
Same old "tried to add favorite, bumped to top of page" stuff. [more inside]
Pony: Unless I'm wrong, it seems that inclusion on the 'popular posts' page/rss feed is limited to highly favorited threads. Can we get threads with a lot of comments included on that page/feed as well, even if they don't have a lot of favorites? Or a separate page for that sort of thing?
We have a most favorites. Can we get a most favorited comments on the green, or am I just missing it?
