Heya everyone,

I'm just thinking out loud here but recently I've noticed the extent to which people bookmark various threads and I was wondering whether it would be easier for everyone if there was a button (with a book icon on it) on the bottom right of every original poster's post that when clicked would save the thread to "View your posts".

Or there could be a specified "Bookmarks" page next to the "View your Posts" that could hold all of your bookmarks, and once you are done with them (like a skin contest) you can remove it from your page. This is similar to what most internet browsers have.

I'm not sure if this would work, but I think it's an okay idea in principle as forum posters would prosper from it being able to bookmark community challenges they want to enter, the hubs they belong to, and their favourite threads to keep up to date with.

Thoughts?

TT

The custom PMC forum system we've been working on has thread bookmarking (referred to as "saving" currently).

Oh, awesome. That's good to hear ^.^ One other thing that I was wondering about is will there be forum notifications - it gets quite tedious to have to literally check your post to see replies, and I think having some sort of notification system would help.

There's already a "subscribe topic" button at the bottom of the page that makes it send you an email when someone replies to the thread.
It might be nice to have it notify you on PMC, though.

EDIT: Actually, there's also a "bookmark topic" button, and you can see threads that you've bookmarked in the user control panel.

Maybe just make it so members can create private collections for forum posts?
