DN Suggestion: Please allow starring inside thread

over 5 years ago from , Designer & Front-end Developer

Currently you only can star the thread on listing page and there's no way to star inside the thread page. I have few bookmarks of old DN threads and couldn't star it because there's no way.

Also if you like the thread, which you happen to read later in the day, it will be difficult to go back to the listing and try to find the thread you like just to star it.

Tl;dr: Add star button inside thread page.

    Agree. I often land on an old DN thread through a Google search when I'm trying to find out something specific. The only way to save the thread for later reference is to somehow figure out where exactly that thread appeared in the stream of posts?? (which could've been months/years ago?) Think about if you had to do that for Stack Overflow, Reddit or Metafilter. Plus that's usually not even feasible since DN doesn't state the exact date when something was posted, instead using the format "____ ago".

    I really appreciate that DN has introduced the Star feature to begin with though! It's been long-awaited. But it needs some improvements for users to take full advantage of the functionality. Otherwise, it just seems half-baked.
