    Hello everyone!

    We've introduced a new feature for the forum - bookmarks.png Threadmarks

    These act like bookmarks for threads. They allow both staff and thread creators to highlight specific posts within threads that will help those looking for specific information.

    You could use it for example on updated revisions of your homebrew project, helpful tips from others, frequently asked questions etc. The list is endless really!

    Threadmarks are currently split into two categories - Important Posts and Staff Posts - I'm sure these are self explanatory but the former is for regular threadmarks and the latter is for important staff updates within threads. Non-staff members can of course only manage 'Important Posts' within their own threads.

    Have suggestions for threadmarks in threads that aren't your own? Use the Report tool to suggest one!

    Any questions or problems please let me know! :)

    Hopefully this time it won't cause the board to crash too!

    Pretty cool, I was an avid bookmark collector as a child and to finally see a cool hip way of bring them into this century with a slick and fresh attitude is what they needed. I am looking forward to the new creative ways creators will be using threadmarks.

    Hello. :)

    Thank you for this great feature and help.
    I have noticed it a couple of days before in DSi Homebrew Forum and used it yesterday even there.
    It makes Threads where Applications etc. regularly has to updated clearer.

    :yay:

    So can I Bookmark a post out of a large threat to continue reading later just incase I need a break? Some threads are too long and I get lost. :ninja:

    Nice. I'm not sure if this is already implemented, but an "OP" marker would be nice as well. It is something like the "new" ribbon on the right of the post that indicates it is new, but instead has an "OP" text and it only appears in the "Original Poster" posts.

    Oh great!, I was not aware of things like this because I visit GBATemp more frequently while I'm at work (in my free time of course ;) ), and we have image loading disabled on our PC navigators lol. Anyway thank you for letting me know :).

    At first glance the border is jarring. BUT it gets my attention and that's the point! I hope thread creators don't overuse this and mark all their posts as important, but overall I think this is a great feature. Should definitely help good replies stand out when used properly. I think this lands squarely on the list of cool forum features I never knew I needed.

    Will be very helpful to not confuse people in big project updates, in my case Gen7 Engine.

    Here's a suggestion: maybe if your post got marked as important (except if you marked it yourself, of course), you could get a small XP reward.

    that would give thread creators the ability to grant XP to other people for no reason ...
    you can already "like" posts for that but at least that's only +1 point.
