I don't know about the rest of you ATSers, but I sometimes get frustrated when I log on and scan through new threads to see what may be interesting to
read, just to lose track of them as soon as I make my first choice. Once I pick a thread as my first choice, going back to find the others I was
interested in becomes a whole new hunting expedition as the forum pages are constantly updated.
Under the current format, the only method I know of to tag threads, is to insert a post in them so that they are easily retrieved in the "myATS" menu
option. Even this method sucks, because as soon as you select the first thread to tag with a post, you still have to go hunting among the updated
forums to find the others you were originally interested in. Furthermore, it would seem that the current format would only lead to the use of more
"one liners" just to tag threads for later reading.
So my question to the board is; "Could we have a "View This Later" tag option for easy retrieval of interesting threads?"
For Instance, when I go to YouTube I can scan through videos and tag those that I'm interested in viewing as "Watch Later," which makes my experience
there more enjoyable because finding the subject mater I'm interested in becomes much, much easier.
I don't know how difficult it would be to incorporate this option here on ATS, but if you could, "that would be great," Thanks.
Edit to add; I'm not talking about a tool that would save the tagged threads forever, the myATS feature already does that. I'm talking about a tool
that would only tag threads for later viewing during that session, or until you logged out.
