The wonderful feature at the bottom of the page, a bit below where you write replies and send them that says, "Add to Favorites" and lets you save your favorite topics?

I am on 3 challenges and sometimes I go through page after page and then more pages to find all 3 of them. Just saved them to favorites.

Then my two Critique Groups - in favorites.

Had to add Pay-Day Friday, the one thread I really try hard to keep up with.

Then I created a shortcut from the beginning screen of favorites and named it "scrap faves" and when I click on it, I just see those 6 threads or topics.

Next to that is my desktop shortcut for scrapbook.com if I have time to go through everything and next to that - the shortcut for my gallery.

Never occured to me to make a separate favorites file for the topics I check periodically throughout the day. And to include my 3 challenges I check throughout the day!

Thanks scrapbook.com - this really makes it convenient to check the boards! When I have more time I can check the entire boards but when I'm in a hurry I don't have to look for anything!

It's a very cool feature. If a thread has information you need to refer to, instructions, how to' s.

Took me quite a few years to find it and already I've clicked several times on my desk icon for scrap faves and it took me right to the 6 threads I check really often.

Just be warned, if you are part of a thread that gets mopped, you can never get rid of it from your favorites.

*Yes, it is from personal experience.*

Manda K -
Oh that explains why I have 2 in my favorites that I can't access or delete.

I sent Megan a PM, but nothing yet.
At one time she was able to get rid of those for us if we asked.

I know she's busy so no worries but it would be great if I could get rid of those!

Yep - Kim, I am named Henri after my father who was H-E-N-R-Y. I was never a Henrietta - always a Henri. It's been kind of different. Kind of like a boy named Sue.

Don't like that you can't get rid of them if they get mopped but the ones I've saved are my two critique groups, Pay-Day Friday, and 3 challenges. None of them tend to be very controversial - just fun threads.

But I will keep that in mind - if a thread starts getting controversial, I'll get it out of favorites. Thanks for the heads-up!

No, Henri. You are not the last to discover. I have no clue what you're talking about- so I haven't even discovered it, yet! lol

i'm sorry, I'm not laughing at you. Oh, wait, yes I am! But not in the mean way, just that you seem more techno savvy than I am and I knew about the Favorites feature. It just struck me really funny, lol!

By the way, totally off topic, but I'm getting desperate and I hate job hunting, are there any openings at your place of biz? I don't know how much longer I can stick it out without totally losing it and saying something to the Nazi that should be left unsaid, lol!

Yes, there are openings. In a few different departments. Want a hook up?

Not computer savvy at all here.

But I do love this favorites option. Now I open one thing and my challenges and Pay Day Friday and my two critique groups are in one place and I don't have to search all over for them!

Kory - go all the way to the bottom of this page. When you hit bottom look up on the right just a little bit and there is a place to click that says, "Save to Favorite Topics".

You can set up a file of Favorite topics so you can get to them quickly without sifting through everything when you are in a hurry.

To access your list of favorites - go to the thing near the top for "my place". Hover the curser over it and you will get a list - click on
Favorites.

You will get a screen with a list - go down to favorite topics.

When I did that the first time I saved the page with the list of favorite topics to desktop. Now I just click on "Scrap Faves" and it give me a list of all my favorite topics. When I click on one it takes me right where I left off.
