How do you "track" interesting Forum threads?

I often forget about topics I wanted to keep up on, then can't find them the next day. How do you keep track of topics that you want to go back to?

I'd love a hint for this, too. I sometimes try to find it in search, but am not always successful.
I can't!
I would LOVE to see a "favorites" or "bookmark" function for the forums.
save the thread address off in an excel or word document or e-mail link to yourself


example this thread:
www.etsy.com/forums_topic.php?thread_id=7471

I just bookmark them in my browser.

SS, Do you set up a file on them and title them?

I have a folder for etsy forum bookmarks, and I change the title to something that has to do with the thread.
If I find a forum thread I want to refer to, I copy/paste the link in a gmail e-mail to myself. In the subject I'll put "Etsy Forum: ..." so I can search for it. Put a label or star it.. however you chose to organize :)
i wish we could get update notifications - but for now, i just keep the window open and hit refresh occasionally or bookmark if i think i want to keep up with the thread more than one day (it's only happened once).
Yes, updates would be great. Other boards do that, but Etsy's main thing is selling, not "boarding". (except when they freeze your convos...nothing personal...)
Thanks for the tips! I got all set up with a special folder and everything, then had the fun of dragging it to the top of my favs! Does anyone get that many favs built up, or is it just me?
