Could there be an "save" option when it comes to questions that we would like to answer later? The way it is now if we don't answer it the first time around,it disappears, and if you don't remember the wording it is time consuming to find.

One way to do this is to click on the “Follow this question” link (just below the question, to the right). As long as it gets answers, it will show up in your “Activity for You” section.

If you have forgotten to click ‘follow this question’ you can often find it quicker on the ‘active’ tab.

You could always use http://delicious.com/ and a fluther tag.

For example.
http://delicious.com/sferik/fluther

It would be a nice thing to have built-in. But delicious should work until they add the feature. If they ever do.

If you leave it in your Questions For You, you will always have it.

@marinelife Actually, that’s not true. Questions for you get cleaned out every few days if they have a bunch of responses.

@andrew Ack! Be still my heart.

It would be great on the main question page for those NSFW questions that you want to read at home later (so that you don’t have to open them up at work to follow).

not that I like the NSFW questions or anything…

Thanks everyone.
@andrew , what does “cleaned out” mean exactly? I just want to be sure.

BTW, would it be better if the moderators who answer could be easily identifiable, since they have the most uptodate answer when it comes to Fluther, and so that users can read that answer before anyone else’s, if they are short of time.

@flo Andrew will be more specific, but I think it just means removed from your ‘questions for you’ list. Mine often goes from 44 to 21 in minutes. I assume the rest reached the automated level of removal.

flo's avatar

@YARNLADY thank you that is what I thought. I appreciate it.
BTW, where do find out how to perform the “strike out”? I would like to strike out one of my postings, I see it under the “entire list”, but how to perform it…

YARNLADY's avatar

@flo click on the ‘see the entire list’ under the answer box.

@YARNLADY thanks again for answering, I am thinking about it.

YARNLADY's avatar

@flo I hope it works You might find what you want.

@YARNLADY Someone told me that I should use the hyphen on the first and last words of my text.

augustlan's avatar

@flo That’s correct. – word – (but no spaces in between) = word.

@YARNLADY
@augustlan
Thanks. I I thought you guys see a sentence. I just insisted on finding it. By the way I was intending to strike out a posting from a day or so ago (which can’t be done I guess) So, I am thinking how do I bring that text so I can put the hyphen…Thanks.

flo's avatar

@YARNLADY
@augustlan
I meant to write “So, I was thinking…” in the last sentence.
So on what occasion do people use the strike out feature? I mean other than to demonstrate it in the answer box, and before the deadline of the “edit this response”.

augustlan's avatar

Most often, people seem to use it to be funny think it’s funny. ;)

flo's avatar

@augustlan thanks. By the way I wanted to strike out my posting for a nice flow. If people want to read all the answers, I don’t want them to waste time trying to understand it.
