Add Link to Bookmarked Forum Threads

Postby hyposquasher on Tue Dec 11, 2012 4:22 pm

Concise description:
  • It would be very useful to have a link to your account's bookmarked forum threads, perhaps right at the top of the main Forum page under Community Guidelines.

Specifics/Details:
  • Currently the only way to access forum threads that one has bookmarked is to click Control Panel -> Manage Bookmarks. It's difficult to find this link in the first place and even when you know it is there, it involves an extra click and navigating away from the Forum pages. It would be much simpler to have a link to your bookmarks right on the main Forum page.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • The bookmark feature is fantastic, as is the subscription feature. This would benefit all users who want an easier way to keep track of specific forum threads that are often buried many levels deep (e.g. Forums -> Clans -> Active Challenges -> some thread). I feel that many more people would take advantage of the bookmarking feature if there was an easy-to-find link.

I just bookmark it on my browser

ucp.php?i=main&mode=bookmarks

I actually use the "view your posts" button more than my bookmarks anymore

The web-browser bookmarks are not a bad idea, but I use many different PC's throughout the day so I would have to add that bookmark to each one.

As far as "View Your Posts" that only shows threads that you have posted in, so that is not a good option for someone who only wants to follow a thread for its content and not post in that thread.
