Sometimes I may start thinking about an answer but I am unable to finish it due to various reasons. Most often it is that I have to change my location (work to home, vice versa) or I have to look something up or kill the tab. Once that happens I sometimes lose the question.

I would like some way of marking a question as "in progress" or "in my queue" or some such so I can easily resume pondering the question after interruptions.

  • This is solely for the answerer's (me) benefit.
  • It is not a "save drafts" proposal.
  • It might be nice to see how many others are working on the same question. Then again, maybe not. Might be nice to see the level of interest after a question was answered.

Marking it a favorite doesn't work for you? – John Saunders Dec 26 '10 at 18:44
See List all my drafts, which is semi-related. – marcog Dec 26 '10 at 18:46
@John Saunders: I do not want to mix my favorites with anything else. I hate to have to weed. – Allen Dec 26 '10 at 23:12
@marcog: Yes, something like that but lighter. Just a "I'm thinking about these questions". Could also be a useful moderation tool: mark several questions for a tentative move, for example. – Allen Dec 26 '10 at 23:17
