Please bring back the "star"!!

Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:32 am

Hi to you all,

first I am very sorry, but English is not my first language spoken and therefore not perfect - however I hope you will understand my problem...

I really do miss the "star" button-feature in this new forum! The star was replaced by "flames" (I guess for a HOT topic) and a plain "letter" symbol...
The star was lighted bright yellow after posting something, or alternatively, you could switch on the star (by clicking) to highlight the topic for personnel use. It was so much easier to follow interesting topics and the own posts...
The new feature "keep me updated if something new is posted" with the "alarm bell" symbol on top of this page is nonsense and makes me mad...

I searched but couldn't find an answer. Is there a way to list the topics I want to follow, or see the ones I responded to? Thanks

I agree the star was nice as it stood out. There are ways to add icons for topics you have repied to, however they are not in the standard set. So they need to be made from an original. Can be done, but guess it won’t qualify for priority.

There is a cog just above the first post in a topic that you can click to subscribe to a topic. Those topics can then be seen and accessed in you profiles overview page, and manage subscriptions. You can even get an email when a reply has been made. Or simply go here:

To set notifications, bell or email:
5D Mark III, 7D, 17-40 F4 L, 70-200 F2.8 L IS II, 50mm 1.4, EF 1.4x II, EF 2x III, SPEEDLITE 600EX-RT
