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.

Rhys... Just cuz ur new doesnt mean u eat the subject...

i love this idea, alot of the time, i track smth (hacker report page for example) and then like, a bazillion messages r sent there but i hardly look at them cuz i just use it to report. if they could add a “mute” option, thatd be nice even if u just replied

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:

Yes, it does get pretty hard to track posts when they get super long XD

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.
