What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Possible Duplicates:
Is there any way to favorite / bookmark an answer?
Can I bookmark a question on Stack Overflow?


Some threads match my tags and that's okay.

However, there are threads that I would like to have as "favourites" regardless of whether they match any of my tags.

If I could add a unique tag to such threads, that would not be a good idea because it creates a global tag clutter.

Is there a better alternative?

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.

see: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1569/… although I see now that one is about answers... there must be one about questions as well. – fretje Feb 11 '10 at 16:40
there it is: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/23670/… this one is an exact dupe – fretje Feb 11 '10 at 16:43
There is another alternative: use your browser's bookmark system. – perbert Feb 11 '10 at 17:42

Click the star beneath the vote-counter. This marks that particular thread as a "favorite." Once a question is marked as "favorite," it will show up in your "Favorites" tab on your user profile.

It seems that some wish to down vote Jonathan. This seems unkind imo. Jonathan, I appreciate your answer. – gerryLowry Feb 11 '10 at 17:59
@gerryLowry: You'll find this type of behavior a lot around here. Best advice is to toughen up and don't take it personally :) – Sampson Feb 11 '10 at 18:04

You should just click the star under the voting controls.
