Would someone please explain (somewhere) what this "bookmarking" deal is. I see it every once in a while for no apparent reason and all it does is ... nothing.

What it does is bring the thread back to the top of the list, which is really not very useful. Anyone who actually wants to save the thread for their own future viewing should instead click on the star at the top of the page and save it to their own favorites.

Click the "star"? What star? Is this on IE? I use AOL so it would be a heart instead. Is that what you mean sf7307?
Does the Exclamation point in the triangle (provided by Fodors) mark it as well? It says "Flag this topic" when you run your cursor over it. Is "flagging" it, the same as "marking" it? Anyone know?

Hi The star on the right upper side is from IE. It is favorites and stays there when you go to other sites such as aol. This way you can go to other sites and click on the "favorites" star and retrun to what you saved. I think [not sure] that the heart on aol is only when you are on aol. IE is my browser and yahoo, msn etc are web sites. I click on the IE star when I want to save something.

The exclamation point is when you want to flag something for the fodors editors, such as a post that constitutes advertising.

Thanks, sf. I didn't think it was a useful thing to do. More annoying than anything. And, BTW I apologize for the subthread.

NoFlyZone, Any time someone "posts" (even just the one word) to a thread, it is from that time forward attached to their profile. So if one wants to follow that thread for new postings, updates, or to read in the future, it is easy to find. Anytime someone adds a post to the thread it will pop to the top of all the other posters "Profile" threads list as something to be read again. If a post is saved on an internet "Favorites" you have to remember to sort through all those favorites every once in awhile to see if anything new has been added. The "bookmark" really is quite a useful thing to do if you're trying to follow a particular discussion.
