    After seeing this, it made me think of a new idea: What if we could use commands in our posts to achieve certain purposes?

    So if a journey thread is successful, the OP can select the option to input a command in the text editor, and then use a command like /success at the end of his post, and this will signal that the journey was a success, and it makes it easier to find with the prefix feature.

    In the future, commands could be used to do a whole bunch of things, I think BHW 2.0 could be a better time for this idea to come forth.

    Here is an example of where this idea would be perfect.

    Using the Journey threads query which has been discussed more than once.


    Taking a look at this, the OP would be able to use an /update or /insight command and on the side of the thread, when he has value or an update to add in a post.

    Combined with the prefix, and maybe can be added to an advanced search, we can see the number of times the OP has used this on the , and that way the most helpful journeys can be gauged.

    Just arranging them on thread likes to get good journeys isn't the best indicator here, as that will only show the likes for the original post.

    For this reason, I would recommend being able to arrange comments by likes in an original thread, ngl, this would solve that issue as well.

    While I'm not sure I completely understand what you're suggesting, I think it would be great if mods could edit the thread name to include a prefix like [SUCCESS] in order to mark a thread as a completed journey as 90% of journeys end up with OP disappearing :)

    I'm sure we're on the same page, mate.

    Yep, we're on the same page :D.

    Honestly that would be a great idea. Right now there is no official way to interpret if threads are successful unless you were to search for "success / journey achieved" or something like that in the Journey subforum, but its not too efficient in usage.

    One of the best ways to tell if a Journey thread is successful in my opinion is if the thread has lots and lots of replies - that usually shows that OP is updating the content continuously.
