can't click - no time - want mouseover

Pony request: mouseover that shows who favorited a favorited comment. As opposed to having to click through to a list.

Dark blue forevah!

On my favourites page, the dark blue popups that appear when I hover over a link never disappear when I move my mouse away.

Could the mouseover text for the number of favorites show the usernames of the favoriters?

When you hover / mouse over the [+ 2 favorites] text, you see more text that says "2 users marked this as favorites" Would it be useful if the pop-up text actually showed the usernames of those who favorited it? Small pony i know, only saving a few mouse clicks, but i think it would be cool. Any thoughts?

Mouseover text annoying, unhelpful

57-Chevy-with-a-double-headlight-kit-Filter. Why, when one hovers a link in a post, does the text in the status bar now read 'short cut to x' ? This actually makes it harder to tell to what the link is. Short cut to 53601 tells one nothing. Why does it now have be a detective novel to tell where the link leads ? This is counter-intuitive--why make it more work to tell what the link is ? This is not user friendly.

Please bring back to the status bar the address one would read in the address bar and forget this 'short cut to' crap. Here's a concept: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Mouseover Madness, Or, The Terrible Title.

Mouseover Madness, Or, The Terrible Title.

I applaud the use of the title attribute, but here the text is so long there isn't time to read it before the browser hides it again.

MeTa threads user link functionality inconsistent in view, preview

Don't know if this is intentional or not, but i just noticed this:
When previewing my comments to metaTalk threads, mouse-rollovers on a previous posters name shows their username in the IE status bar; however, mouse-rollover in the same thread when the comments box is empty displays user numbers instead. Is this a useful feature, or a glitch?
