Often I favourite posts that I find either interesting and/or useful, and may be useful for future reference. However, I have 5 pages of favourites (and I'm sure other users have lots more), and when it comes to finding them I often find it difficult, for several reasons:
- I can't remember what the question was titled - I have a general understanding of topic/tag, like
Cocoabut even for specific problems I sometimes can't remember how the question was phrased
What I am suggesting is:
- When you favorite a question, you have the option to give it an alternate title
- This is displayed along with the post title in the favorites tab, which makes it easier to find for future reference
This way it would be easier to find, because I can find it based on what I specifically found useful or interesting in that question, which may have been different or more specific than what the user was focusing on in their question. Perhaps when clicking on the star to favorite the question, one of red boxes (similar to the one shown when flagging a post) could appear with an option to give the bookmark an alternate title, or to leave it blank if you don't want to associate one.
Of course, there is always the bookmark option in the browser, but it'd be nice to be able to keep the favourites on Stack Overflow - then if I'm away or not using my main browser I don't have to go there to find what I'm looking for.
