  • Hi,

    when I want to access a thread at a later time, I simply bookmark it. So this question can be reached at 

    The last part is not required but it doesn't matter. That is the link that the browser had. Same for your link - it has multipme referrer inside which is not required. But you do not have to care. Just create a bookmark and you will be able to get back to the thread.

    That way you can manage threads together with other useful links that you found and that you want to have ready for later.

    That is the possibility, when you use the browser to access the forum. There is a ommunity nntp bridge which you could use, too. Then you could use the newsreader to move / copy a message of the thread. But you gave a link so I think that you use the browser.

    With kind regards,

  • It is unfortunate that we have no way to flag a thread as one we want to follow. The best option, other than saving links, is to reply so the thread shows up in your "My threads" view. But even there it can get lost. I actually have kept some links to important threads in a file so I can always find them.

    In the old newsgroups we could mark any thread as one we wanted to watch. It would show in red in lists of threads, bold if there was anything new we had not yet read, normal if we were up to date. We could also mark threads as ones we did not care to follow, after which they showed as dim. We never had to waste our time again opening the thread. These are features I miss now in the forums.

  • Agree with Konrad, it is the message ID that is important in locating the thread.
