Duplicate: Better Favourites Organisation

I'm always favoriting a question for a particular reason. Personal interests, problems I encounter in my own work or things I'd like to solve long-term. Some are related to platforms that I work with, or topics I need to learn someday.

I would like a simple system to organize these favorites, much like an email inbox. A list of favorite "folders" where you can drag-n-drop favorites into would make favorites easy to retrieve later. When you mark a question as a favorite, can go into an "unsorted" folder.

Its not a duplicate because I'm proposing a specific idea, not asking for any. – Jarvis Aug 12 '09 at 19:24
But Steven Lowe posted your idea in that thread already: "simpler solution: organize your favorites into 'folders'" and it already has some upvotes in a thread that is already receiving attention. – Tom Ritter Aug 12 '09 at 19:34

How about just being able to tag favorites, with a search of tags? Seems less complex and could probably reuse code and user behavior that's already in use.

Like Gmail's labels, isn't it? – Jarvis Aug 12 '09 at 19:29
Yes, that's kind of what i had in mind. But also like StackOverflow (et al)'s tags. – bill weaver Aug 12 '09 at 21:07
