Tagging forum posts?

Capt Zapp

Would it be possible to make a way to tag forum posts that really catch your interest? Maybe a thread caught your eye and you want to refer back to it later, being able to tag/un-tag would make them easier to find, especially if what caught your interest has noting to do with the original topic. A different option would be to be able to search the forums for certain text.

I find it damn easy to either just leave the page open in the browser ot to make it in the browser as a bookmark and find it in the browser bookmarks.

I've tried both methods. Leaving an open browser window works if you are going to get back to it soon, but not if it is something you might want to refer back to at a later date. As for the other, you can't bookmark a specific post.

Haven't tried to bookmark a post, but can bookmark a thread no problem

What's more, the system currently flags any new additions to the thread since the last time you visited.

I'll admit, though, there are times I'd like to revisit a previous discussion, but have no clue where to find it since the topics discussed change over time so much (i.e. they rarely remain on target).

Not quite so simple. Micro***t has just updated my operating system and destroyed every such flag.

A big problem but I just do a search on my own moniker. Brings up a lot of flags but I get involved in far less than 10% of the threads so that helps.

Aside from "Lost Stories" and "Story Ideas", I suspect I've voiced an opinion in around 70% of the forum posts (as many of you have likely noticed).

How to bookmark a post:

If the post has a reply, follow the link to the reply then bookmark the '@name' link in the reply.

If it doesn't have a reply but is a reply, follow the '@name' link back, then bookmark the poster's name link.

If it neither has nor is a reply, post a (dummy) reply, bookmark as above, then delete the reply

I'd like a search function; I remember that Lazeez posted some stats about the number of individual pages on the site, but I can't remember what thread it was in - anyone?

...but it doesn't quite give me the info I'd hoped for, to see how big a memory stick would be needed to hold the whole of SOL; just that about six chapter/story posts in seven are for a multichapter story, which average about ten chapters. Interestingly, as of now (2016-04-25t19:40), there hasn't been a new post in over 48hr (but 26 updates).

Assuming 40k per chapter on average(which looks to be overkill for many). I come up with under 7 gigs worth of chapters. Giving 80k per single chapter story entry and you get less than 2 gigs of additional content. So a 16 gig memory stick would likely handle the story data
