I like to star/favorite questions on StackOverflow that I would like to revisit some time in the future. Some of them are interesting, some because I'd like to reread when I get home from work. After a while, these pile up-- there are a lot of them.

My question is, can we have a feature or way to label these favorites that are essentially bookmarks? I'd like to have some that are keepers, with a more permanent label such as "Interesting". Others, I'd rather label as "To Read Later", "Funny", or "Good Discussion".

This would be at the user level in each of our own accounts. This would help me organize my bookmarks/favorites.

I think this would be a very good idea. Something like either "favorite folders" or a label system similar to gmail would be really handy.

Common things I would use for labels are:

  • Pertaining to work
  • Interesting Idea
  • Read Later
  • Funny
  • Pertains to project X
  • +1 Yes, exactly what I was thinking, something like Gmail labels!

It would be really nice to have that feature. I'd use it mostly for labeling canonical questions I use for closing other questions as duplicates.
