Hello everyone!

I just saw a post on the forums on the very popular subject of how to raise one's rates. I remember that a LONG time ago I read a post that had excelent suggestions on this subject and I would've loved to point the asker that way... but now I cannot find that post. Sooo:

I think that it would be REALLY useful to have a feature that allowed us to save or mark specific posts within a thread (not the threads themselves) that we find particularly good, interesting, etc. and that we think might come in handy in the future.

I don't mean the "my forum posts" feature that we have in our profiles, since that only includes our own posts. I mean something along the lines of Gmail's "star" feature. Perhaps adding a little "+" sign on the corner of each post, that we can click in order to save them directly to a "favourite posts" section?


I remember I made a similar suggestion a long time ago, but didn't get many responses back then (that I know of, at least). Soo, I'd like to give it another shot.

Totally seconded! Jan 29, 2009

If I remember well, this has been proposed even more than once.

It would be an extremely useful feature, indeed! I never find again the threads I am interested in.

I have to agree; this would be a nice feature.

Helpful and time-saving Jan 29, 2009

I absolutely support this suggestion. Often I read something interesting and don't find it later (or need a long time), because I want to look up a good advice or recommendation the moment I need it.

Me too Jan 29, 2009

I've tried to devise a system of copying selections to a text editor and filing them in the computer, but most of the time they just get lost in the shuffle.

You can use the Link button Jan 29, 2009

Hi everyone,

This is not exactly what Andrea suggests, but you can bookmark individual posts by right-clicking the Link button under the post and choosing your browser's "Add to Bookmarks" command.

I don't see how this could be useful, but I would have no objection. Think about it... after a number of weeks you'd have scores and scores of "favourite" posts and you won't be able to see the wood for the trees.
