Flex Forum suggestion

edited June 23 in New Ideas
This new SmartSDR/Link v2 has me intrigued. And with the F-6700 radio and the Maestro tagging along. My mind and age, finds that i'm lost with the amount of information being posted in the Forum.
This is the suggestion. 
is there a way to tag or put a checkmark next to a submitted suggestions or explanations on any subject of interest posted?
In order to find those that are of interest to the members;besides asking the "New Post" for suggestions. 
I presently cut and paste to Word documents, many of the comments posted. However, many new suggestions come up on the same subject that I like to re-read but I can not find it.

    Do you mean in addition to the current categories that exist for the hardware and software offerings?

    When you make a new post, there is a section below the "add your emoji" section that allows the original poster to select which rig, software, or other category this post applies to.  Unfortunately, most posters forget this tool.

    Also, if you go to your profile page, you should be able to select which categories you are interested in seeing.  You can also select which for categories, if any, you will be sent an email notice for new posts, or responses to posts of your interest.

    Some of the power is in your hands, some of it is in the original poster's hands.

    As I read it the poster is asking for a way to return to a favorite post directly. For example, imagine a facility that allows you to see a list of every comment/post you marked with a 'like'. It's an interesting idea, for example, yesterday a Flex employee posted a note that had links to various YouTube videos, resources helpful for installing SSDR v2.0. A person choosing to wait a week or two before upgrading to v2.0 might want to return to that story when they upgrade - a facility like this will help with that effort. You can save links to posts, cut-and-paste, as well as print them out - this would be another way to call up selected articles. I might suggest taking a look at Microsoft OneNote - it is a free tool on many platforms that is designed to aggregate info from various sources, including web pages.

    Related to the original post, I think the signal to noise ratio on this forum gets quite low, especially when there's a big announcement.   Maybe it's a limitation of "Get Satisfaction", but I'd suggest some kind of user rating or curation system, like slashdot.org or (shudder) reddit.com .

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
