How do I track the OPs I want to get back to answer later on?

Asked by flo (10480points) February 23rd, 2013

Let’s say I only have time to read the new responses but not to respond to them. So how do I keep them separate from the rest until I get back to them?

Hit “Follow Question” on the top right and it will be in the “Questions You’re Following” section of your account.

@janbb I mean among those, how do you keep some OPs on “Activity for you” because you’re not really done with them? I mean normally you read the new responses and respond if you need to, but once in while you have to leave the responding for another time. Esp. if the OPs happen to be from long ago, it is going to go back to page 17 or something. I know you can search them.

There isn’t any way on the site to do it, they just stay in your “questions you’re following” area. But, you could either bookmark the page on your browser, or copy/paste the URL into an email to yourself, if it’s something you really want to get back to.

@janbb is correct. Hitting “Follow Question” will keep the question in your “Activity for you” until you decide to click the “Unfollow” button.

If there are new responses on these questions, they will show up at the top of your “Activity for you” list as “New activity”. Once you read the thread, it leaves the New activity” list, but it’s still in the “Questions you’re following” list on that same page. There’s no way for you to bump questions to the top of either list, but you can still scroll through them to find one that you want.

Alternatively, in terms of non-Fluther options, you could bookmark a specific question on your browser, or keep a list of links somewhere to refer to later.
