    Default How can I mark long posts to continue reading from where I left?

    Hello.

    There are some long threads that I start reading, then they disappear and come back with more posts. I haven't found a way to continue reading from where I left them the last time.
    Can I do this, or is there a way to mark the last read post as a reference to continue later from there as posts are added?

    By the way, as a new member, I must say I'm quite impressed with the quality of the forum and its ridiculously knowledgeable members. I'm learning a lot!

    Thank you.

    Glad you're enjoying the site.

    If you want to be informed of new posts to a thread, the easiest way is to subscribe. This is in the thread tools at the top of a thread.

    You can manage your subscriptions from within your settings.

    If you are in the middle of a long thread and want to keep yout place, simply click on a post title. This changes the address bar to include the post number. You can then bookmark the page and come back to the exact post you weer last looking at.

    I don't know if it's because of the kinds of threads I like or what, but whenever I bookmark one I find that the next time I log in it's been shut down and in many cases my favorite posts have been deleted.

    Yes, there are times when this might happen. When a thread goes completely off topic or when the 'ad-homs' start appearing we have the rights (as per our Terms of Service) to edit/delete posts that violate our ToS as necessary, and in certain cases, close threads from further posting.

    All we ask is that people here remain civil to each other. We, hopefully, can agree to disagree . . . but we do not need to berate our fellow member because we ourselves do not share the same opinions on whatever the subject matter happens to be.

    Is there an easy way to stop yourself from continuing to read a long post you've lost interest in? I find that momentum carries me through to the end most of the time.

    I find that attacking the computer with an ax stops those long posts usually. Or, you can commit suicide by a means of your choice; that's said to be extremely effective.

    Thanks a lot, Ken--I tried the second option first, and now I can't stop reading posts about $5,000 speaker wire and million dollar speakers in the audiophile subforum. I hope this doesn't mean I've gone to hell.

    I certainly hope not! Cuz I forgot to mention that the second option is permanent.
