Any chance you could have Tech consider making bookmarked threads automatically visible in TIO, rather than "I'm watching" MNHQ? Maybe as an account preference setting?

Some of the interesting threads are about 40% "placemarking" as people want to track the thread in TIO rather than IW. Which is ever so slightly irritating when trying to see what the actual posts/updates are.

Thank you (in hopes).

What's the difference? You just click a different button.

Well, you'd think but, lots of posters seem to prefer to place-mark by commenting "placemarking" so the thread goes to their TIO. It's then compounded by other people posting to ask them not to do that, and so the circle goes on...sad

Hi all - just to update, tech are looking into this to see if it's feasible. (No promises!)

Thank you KatherineMN - hope springs eternal!

Snap8 - quite often they do know how to use the bookmark function, but choose not to.

Also if you bookmark or add the thread to "watching" you don't get a message if Mumsnet decide to zap the thread. It just disappears into thin air!

While we're on the subject, any chance of adding a watch button to the bottom of the thread or onto the bookmark menu? I usually use the mobile site and if I decide a long thread is interesting once I've got to the end, I have to go all the way to the top to 'watch'. If I book mark them do this, the book mark doesn't seem to work so then I have to scroll through to find where I was the next time I log on.

(Obv if you can add 'bookmarked threads' to 'threads I'm on' then my complaint is null and void 😊)

Can someone tell me how or where to find the bookmark option please x

You can not book mark on all versions of MN. E.g. You can not bookmark on MN Classic which is the view I use.

Watching a thread does not tell you if it has been deleted.

Unless these are solved I will be placemarking.

Hi ceecee32,

What browser/device are you using?

If you're on a desktop, hover over a post and you'll see a little 'bookmark' option appear bottom right of the post!

ceecee32 Fri 19-May-17 11:52:54

Hi- either laptop or android.

Hovering hopefully now on the laptop and nothing happens sad

(nothing happens when I click on a post either)

Sorry - am on Windows 10

Thanks so much for that. Could you pop us an email so that we can try and get to the bottom of this?
