Ah ok, thanks. I thought it might be a way to keep track of my favourites but I guess it just shows up on the right as general favourites? I don’t think there is a problem with the word, but it isn’t clear how it works exactly.
I’m not actually sure whether clicking again unfavourites it – the star doesn’t disappear but then the post doesn’t show up on the right under favourites so maybe it works?
I’m not sure favourite is the right word for this. Jo – it is meant to be a collective rather than an individual thing – so the favourite column on the right are the general favourites. Some websites do what we’re trying to do well by adding heat, or by voting up and voting down… all of this tries to make the noteworthy posts bubble to the surface. Kudos, thumbs up, heart. Would we want to introduce a negative or keep it all positive? http://www.fmylife.com has some quite provocative statements which is a different approach which has similar aspects. What would our provocative statements be if we went that route?
