Two little flag ponies: after flagging a post or comment, can the text be elaborated beyond [Flagged], maybe [Flagged as Fantastic/ Noise/ Derail/ Etc]? I worry about mis-flagging items. Also, I often forget what I've flagged in the past, can we have personal, private histories of flags? Or are profiles either viewable to the public or MeFites, w/o options for personal views?
Any way to "un-flag" something? It was done totally in error...really...trigger finger slipped...
You post a comment, but it contains an HTML error because you're dumb, so you hit the [!] and flag your own comment with "HTML/display error." A few minutes later, a helpful mod comes along and fixes your dumb mistake, and all is right with the world... except that you still see [Flagged] sitting right there below your comment, forever, reminding you of your typographical failings and offending your sense of aesthetics. Please, oh please, can the [Flagged] flag be taken away by the same moderator who cleans up your HTML? I promise I won't ask for anything ever again until I find something new to whine about!
No fucking way is this bearable on MeFi.
The way that this question is phrased is boorish and doesn't belong on the front page of Ask Metafilter.
I like the look of Metafilter. It is an attractive site. The only part of it that I hate with a passion is the "You just flagged something, good for you" page. It is an eyesore. I hate its whiteness and the lack of words on 90% of its surface. Let's make it a pretty color and spread the words out some. What do you say?
Matt, while I quite like the new layout of the "fantastic posts/answers" page for AskMe, some of the old functionality has been lost. It used to be that when I was pressed for time, I'd come and see what questions/answers had been recently flagged. This gave me the "reader's digest" version of AskMe. Now, though, all I see is the "greatest hits". There's no way to see what's bubbling to the top, only what's already there. Anyway to combine the two somehow?
Crap post. Discuss.
