Instead of "tracking" posts...

Hi! 

I was thinking about how people had to put a message saying "tracking" to let others know that they were keeping their eye on the post. It's a little difficult to track posts like that. 

Maybe there could be an option where you can star posts? For example, if you wamted to track a post that you liked, there could be a button where you could press the star, and it would be added to your "starred" list. Much like the friend list on SoD, where you can star best friends by clicking the star next to their name. 

Let me know what you guys think about this! :D

That is a great idea!

That’s a great idea! I’ve had to track a few posts in my lifetime and it gets hard to keep up on them all so I think having a little ‘tracking section’ would be a great idea! :D

My subject was ... *dragon blast* ... never mind XD

Thanks for the reply, Tilly! 

And yeah! I thought about it, and came up with another idea. When you click on your 'account', there could bea part where it says: "Starred Posts". You could click on that tab and it would show all the posts you've got starred. :D

No, Watershout N-- *blast* Fantastic. You burned my subject!

How did you get that symbol on your subject? That's beside the point XD

Yeah! I think it would be helpful, so we wouldn't struggle with having to track posts, and then trying to find them again XD

Wiggles the whispering d.eath ate my subject.

Personally I haven't really had trouble with the tracking system. Though I do think this would work well in addition to it rather then as a replacement for it.

My Backstory:

 

   Lightning, rain, fire, b.lood and dragons were the last things I saw before I was shoved onto a small boat and set out to sea

 

   I woke up in a wooden bed, it was uncomfortable as Helheim. My head was throbbing, my arms were battered and bruised... 

   I looked around, it was a fairly large room... Four other beds excluding mine, they were all occupied, one other girl occupied the bed beside me and the others were occupied by boys, I recognized them all from my village which was wrecked by some weirdo with this massive elk dragon-thing, it fired rainbows and had an extremely powerful explosion. We couldn't really defend ourselves too well, we lived in a poor village and the only tamed-ish dragon was what we called a Decimater, I think the other islands called them stormcutters; either way, I fled at the first sign of trouble so, the majority of the village p.erished

   After going over what happened last night, I think it was last night anyways, I have no clue hwo long I was out, but, that was soon answered when a girl walked in, she looked like a right nerd.

   She asked how I was feeling, I answered simply, as soon as I said my honest answer, this whale of a man with one hand came in, screaming, "DON'T USE THOSE WORDS IN SCHOOL OF DRAGONS!!!" over and over again, at the first five, I was confused but then I was a little worried for this man's mental health with he climbed onto my bed and started screaming in my face... I just said I felt terrible...

   Eventually, he calmed down... And went away, the girl, who I now know as Heather clarified that he was the Headmaster of the school and was very, very strict on how the students speak on school grounds... Good Lord... Though, to be honest, I'm glad Heather agreed he was mad.

   Either way, she checked, what she called "the vitals" and sent me on my way. Second I came out, a cannonball was soaring through the sky, and this lads, is how I became a dragon rider, which I was very against but then... You'll see.

   This literal stick figure wearing dragon skin armour, he looked like a rip-off ninja and he had the over-grown lizard to go with it, it was "jet black" as they called it but, I personally called the colour of the elk rainbow dragon's soul.

   The guy, who was called Hiccup (weird name but, OK) told me to "mount the toothless and destroy the ships" I mounted the "Toothless" which was what he named the dragon and he mounted behind me, we flew the dragon and I got the hand of steering, pitch and firing.

   Eventually when Hiccup was finished, I freed this dragon, which, from what this woman, Valka (the only viking like human in this place called "The School") said that it was a "rumblehorn" and from the few seconds of flying with him (I called him Bolverkr), he was very, very slow but he was stable.

   Afterwards, this Valka one took me to the main school where I chose my first dragon, I opted for a monstrous nightmare.

 

*Magic timejump from D.emonic Squirrel Powers*

 

   It had been a few months, I had made a few friends in the school, p.sycho Headmaster hadn't changed, I had gotten a new a dragon, a Decimater, or a Stormcutter, I named him XWing, he and I were mates, he loved racing, and as did I. Within a few months, I had accumilated around 350 trophies in a few months.

   I was still a huge N.oob in comparison to the other professional racers with all their fancy shmancy racing gear so, I decided to go buy some, I was saving up gems to buy the stormcutter armour. It was pricy but, it was worth it, X's speed and agility improved alot so, I stuck with it.

 

*Another magic timejump from D.emonic Squirrel Powers*

 

   It had been a year and I had been through three other racing dragons, Blizzard, the woolly howl, Sneachta the Snow Wraith and Pup, another Snow Wraith until finally bought a Sand Wraith egg on sale, Ocean, the sand wraith became my permanent racing dragon after that.

   After nearly two years, I had joined another clan yet again after being rogue for months (Believe me, that's a story for another day), I really liked it, I had also gotten new racing armour, more like the type the other racers had, I now have seven sand wraiths, Ocean, Sandy, Emerald, Azriel, Cassian, Rhysand and Adamus.

   Currently, as of now, I am working towards trophy goals and keeping up with school work (another tale for another day with all the stuff we have to learn from Phlegma, Heather and the others) and improving my alternate selves.

 

Thats all from me,  StarGazer/Skunky/DemonicSquirrel

 

Oh yea, btw, i might do the little excess parts I did as a project xp

Hey, Star! :)

I'm happy to hear that you like the idea :) 

And yes, I think a mute option would be really nice. I do the same with the hacker reporting page, but it's true that plenty of messages are uploaded onto it weekly / daily. :D

I think that's a great idea. Pinning/starring posts would be great (especially when threads get really long >~<)

I also had a couple of other ideas on the forum track that can be found on this thread if anyone wants to take a look:

I don't think that functionality exists for this forum module.

 

Honestly the entire forum could use a module update. This one is awful, and the functions it does have (like points) aren't even enabled. I'm sure that Drupal has some better, newer ones? This one is super dated. Or even better-better, swap to a completely different one like Xenforo or something.

 

Perhaps it would blow some life into this place. Everything about this one sucks. The tracker, the way replies look, the lack of quoting ability, no ratings, not being able to change time annotation,  poor customisation etc.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good idea, it would be easier to keep track of things. For example maybe if your tracking a post then decide you don't want to anymore just stop tracking it.
