Thread: Favorite Threads

  1. #1

    Favorite Threads

    I've brought a similar suggestion up before and got shotdown, but this time I'm gonna make a convincing case.

    I know I for one could REALLY use a favorite threads section. There are some threads that are unusually chock full of useful information and that I will refer back to many times for months to come. I can subscribe, but it'll just fall to the wee bottom of the subscription list as I add threads. If I could add it to a "favorites" list, it'd be right there whenever I needed it instead of having to go searching for the darn thread every single time I needed to refer to it.

    What do you think?

    I would like to be able to refer back to some threads also...sometimes I go looking for a thread and it's no longer listed on the profile page and I don't remember the name or where it was located ( old age ya know ) and I don't feel like spending an hour looking for it...

    but I saw a place on the main page that says bookmarks...can we bookmark these pages here....I'm not sure how it works? I bookmark some pages with my browser already but I'd prefer not to load it up.

    All-in-all I think it's a good idea.

    I also think it sounds like a great idea, and I can't think of any reason not to implement something like this.

    Val, I know, but my point was:

    I can subscribe, but it'll just fall to the wee bottom of the subscription list as I add threads.
    I'm subscribed to a LOT of threads for good reason, but if I have to find one specific, I've got some digging to do.

    I dunno, just seemed like a handy idea. I think it would considerably with those of us who actually use AO as a research tool.

    It would be a cool option...but why not just add the thread to your bookmarks / favorites on your own computer?

    Edit:

    Actually, why not just use the bookmark feature on the left-hand side of the page. It works just fine.
