Is there a way to follow/save threads?

On other forums this is possible, allowing me to save and follow a thread that I find helpful and/or interesting, for future reference, rather than searching for it all over again? Maybe I am missing it? Knowing me, this is totally possible.:)

Thanks

I don't see a way to do that either, but couldn't you just copy the URL for the thread from your browser and save it in something like Evernote. At least that was you'd be able to find it quickly if you needed it again.

Yes, that would work,
Or could bookmark it, I suppose.

There is a way to be notified of new postings to a thread, but it sounds like you want to be able to reference it later on even if there are no new postings. In that case a bookmark would be a good approach.

Copy and paste into your word processor.

My historical view, sites come and go, get updated, internet technology changes, server meltdowns, owner dies with the passwords, someone has an "oops moment" and erases the whole thing...

This hobby has lost a lot of good info that was regularly referred back to, and is now gone.

Saving it for yourself also lets you title and catalogue it in a way you might find useful for retrieval.

happy coaching!
