Saving a Topic from the Forums

Is there a way to save a topic from the forums to somewhere on your members page?

I know that you can be contacted when a new post is made to a thread, but I don't think that would be too reliable if no one else posts.

Just going thread by thread is terribly slow, especially if it has been months since you've read that thread. I can't even remember where a thread was from two hours ago. Using search could take awhile too!

If there is not a way now, could one be made. Just curious!

Thanks for the help!

Sorry, no, that's not currently an option. It could be made one, but it would be a significant effort. We're an all-volunteer organization, so manpower is at a premium...

I've figured out a way.

Send a PM to yourself with the url of the threads you want to watch in
Code:

Rinse and repeat as needed. Change as you so desire.
In your PM Inbox, check that message, and save it into your Savebox - voila, easily found list of personal threads you like to watch.
