Many times, we do Favorite Questions in SE Networks for our future use. But what we got, a list of Titles of Questions in our personal profile. I wonder sometimes I get lost into the very titles — because some of the titles are not clearly saying what they are, or what they contains, or some of the Answers may contain something "extraordinary" that not just mentioned in the Question label.

So I'm thinking of implementing a "Personal Note" — whenever we will try to Favorite a Question, a popup <textarea> will appear to contain a limited amount of texts (i.e. 300 characters); and that will be visible beside the Question Labels on the list of Favorite Questions, so that it'd be easy for a user to find out which Questions was favored (?) and why that was favored exactly.

But the Notes will be Optional — can be skipped on the process of favoring a Question.

Can we implement "Personal Notes" to Favorite Questions?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@JoshC What does that have to do with it? It's not a publicly shared notation, merely a private notation of why that question is worth favoriting. – Servy Oct 5 '13 at 4:10
I would like to be able to categorize (tag?) favorite questions. Allow them to be organized in some way. – Jay Riggs Oct 5 '13 at 5:00
@Servy I'm afraid, the preceding comment was deleted, on which you commented that out. – Mayeenul Islam Oct 5 '13 at 6:20
High cost, low benefit. – Emrakul Oct 5 '13 at 6:31
I'd prefer a private list, independent from favorites, with an additional numeric field for own categories for e.g. follow up, first troll suspect etc. – bummi Oct 5 '13 at 6:37
Agree! That would be kinda useful! – Zoltán Schmidt Oct 5 '13 at 14:40

I think we should be able to have personal annotations on any questions and answers. This would make SO an even more valuable resource. Naturally, it works best for favorite questions, since you'll have a list of these, but they could implement a list of your personal notations, so you could go back to the questions or answers that you put them on.
