    i noticed may be for the 4th time that i would save one marketplace thread in Favorites not to forget about it, but i can't.
    Yeah, we have Watch button, but i dont want to see useless notifications.
    So, here is the suggestion.
    I have one Notepad file with useful threads, but it is not comfy.

    Good idea but for now instead of using a notepad file you can just make a bookmark folder for your favorite BHW threads.

    Yeah!
    It would be cool if we could "favorite" a thread, and it would then always appear on BHWs front page (just above the latest topics), until we un-favorite (or hide) it again.
    Sometimes I don't have the time to read a thread, so I usually end up forgetting about it -- bookmarking doesn't help, I don't use them -- and text files become food for my recycle bin.

    Not sure how easy it would be to put in place, but it could be a good idea.

    BHW - of course.
    Home Page:
    You can hit watch thread and turn on/off email notifications in the dialogue you get when you click the watch thread link at the top.

    You then go into your newsfeed link and can see the action from there without being notified https://www.blackhatworld.com/account/news-feed (found in the menu when hovering over your username)

    OR

    Go to your watch threads page https://www.blackhatworld.com/watched/threads (found under forums) and view from there.

    Simply leave a watched thread by clicking UnWatch.

    Really desired feature, I am surfing from different browsers and devices and it's a very good idea to have all bookmarks on the BWH side. Also it will a good idea to save posts to favorites, not only threads. I know about current "watch thread" feature but it creates these excess annoying alerts.

    And honestly "watch threads" feature designed just for watching, not for storing threads.

    Yes, it would be a really useful function! I usually don't like to use bookmarks (don't ask why, I am not sure about the reason :confused:) and watching the thread sometimes is not exactly what I am looking for. So it is usual for me having 50 tabs open on my mobile browser, just witj BHW posts I want to read! (Really, I have just closed all of them!).

    So, maube it is not a crucial function, but maybe in a future uodate... it would be awesome!
