On geeklists, there is a tab to add that list to your personal list of favourites. There are two issues here. The tab says Add Favorite, which to my thinking isn't a clear descriptor. New users will not necessarily realise what it does and that you can have favourites. Could you please change it to read 'Add To Favourites' or 'Add To My Favourites' ?

Secondly, it uses the rather poor American spelling of favourites. Please use proper English like wot she is wrote. The same goes for the words colour and neighbour.

I remain, as always,
Your most humble servant,
Jon.

This website is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, United States of America, where American English is the standard. Besides, there are more Americans than there are English. We stole your language. Get over it.

Indeed, I am understanding that as a way of saying "We are missing u", this is why I always come back to this site...

That said, the "Change 'Add Favorite' to 'Add To Favourites'" request is quite sane. Disregarding the spelling.

I agree and this is why I thumbed the request. I liked the joke though .

Any one using IE is used to what a Favorite is.

Not everyone uses IE.
Besides, doesn't IE say "Add to Favorites", not "Add Favorite"? (I don't use it much any more.)

"Add Favorite" is just lame and confusing. It sounds like add your favorite (something) to this list, not add this list to your set of favorites.

Agreed.

And guess what I am going to ask for now?

I'd like a way to see the most recent additions to the favourite-flagged Geeklists. 1) New items 2) item comment 3) general comments. Just like the standard "recent additions" function for the game forums.

Pretty please?

How about changing it to 'Add to happy happy zing!'

So that's what Add Favorite means? And I don't think your other suggestion goes far enough. The entire internet went downhill when it switched from Middle English...
