    Is it possible to bookmark threads just like you do to bookmark websites in Chrome? So that no matter how old a thread is you can directly go to that thread in the click of a button?

    But this contains a huge list of threads that I've ever replied to, and sorted by post date. It has threads that I don't even want to get back to and threads that haven't been replied to for a long time goes out of watch to second page etc (those that I really want to "bookmark").

    This is not exactly what I meant. I just want to "bookmark" those threads that I feel is important and I want to visit often. Just like how bookmarks work in Chrome. Hopefully it can be done and should be a useful feature.

    In the top-right, you can Manage Watched Threads and remove the ones that you no longer wish to Watch/Bookmark.

    Thanks.

    But this request is to create a separate bookmark section with only bookmarked threads, so that we dont need to delete the ones in the Watched threads that contains all the threads we have ever replied to

    Just got to the thread you want to bookmark and bookmark it in your browser and save it in a bookmarks folder

    Thanks extertiminator. Am sure you are all trying to help me, but I'm afraid that only few are getting what I'm requesting. Let me make myself more clear.

    Firstly this is a feature-request. Sure we can create a bookmark folder and create a bunch of links to the threads inside a folder. :p But this is a browser feature and sometimes not the best way to manage bookmark for a site.

    Secondly this is a request for improvement. Sure we can see a list of watched threads, delete 10 to 100's of them to show only the threads we want,:confused: but this would just take more time from the user's end and definitely not a great way.

    If you go to Gizmo's Freeware, the articles there for instance Best Free Media Player, if you scroll down to the end of the article and just above the comments section you can see a link called "Bookmark this" :rolleyes: below "Rate this article".

    What this does is that it bookmarks that article and saves them in our account, so it appears like this. It's much easier this way to manage threads/articles from within the site instead of manually searching for the specific thread through the Site search feature, or by scrolling down the huge list of Watched Threads section that has all the threads we've replied to, or depend on the browser to bookmark for us :) Infact we can even see another person's bookmarks so that we can understand and even see their interests and at the same time bookmark them personally too :D
