Maybe today's not the day to make a suggestion. I see a lot of forum subjects as being problems that probably need current attention. So, for future consideration....
I would love to see a "Bookmark this page" link on each forum page - at least for forums focusing on help for Hubbers. It would make it so much easier to find that good advice that I skimmed over and thought I might return to at a later date.
Also, in our HubGroups - the way they are linked at the bottom of the Hubs (as suggestions for further reading), they move in a specific order, with a beginning and end Hub. If someone started reading a Hub that was in the middle of the group, they might follow the links to other Hubs, but at some point they would reach the end of the group. Is there any way to make the list circular, so that the last item in the group is followed by the first one? That way, a visitor could keep reading all of the Hubs in the group more easily, if they choose to.
I like your ideas. Sometimes, with the forums, the threads get buried back on the 5th page or further back. It'd be nice to be able to find them quicker. (especially if you can't remember the title!)
Your web browser can already do this and you can even link to specific posts if you wish to pinpoint a particular bit of info. There's no need for HubPages to reinvent the ability to bookmark a forum page or post.
You make a good point, relache. Still, individual Hubs can be bookmarked, and that was what gave me this idea.
All you have to do is make a folder, name it Hub forums or something like that, and put those bookmarks in it. Individual posts have a permalink, which lets you click and get the URL for just that post.
oh, cool. I was going to ask about that permalink. lol had no idea what it was for!
I love the circular idea with the hub groups. I would also like to be able to list hubs in more than one category.
I like that idea too (more than one category - or "group," maybe; I guess that's what I actually mean, even though it may not be your idea)!
Yesterday I spent way too much time trying to create an elaborate interlinking scheme, to provide additional links on each of my most popular Hubs to a popular one within another group, so that theoretically an interested reader could go from one group to another without having to revisit my profile page. I haven't implemented it yet, and I don't know whether it will work. But I really prefer the idea of being able to label a Hub as part of more than one group.

..which has been an interesting discovery for me. They have interesting content and perspectives. But they seldom come upfront. What are your thoughts. No, not yours. I'm asking the interesting people!

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...

'SHORT-CUTS' - An idea!The success of Bubblews, despite the payments issues etc. has showcased the opportunity for short articles shared internally within a community. HP has Q&A and the Forums but community involvement has declined IMO, I think for various reasons, as well, Q&A has...

I have been thinking about how I can give some of my hubs that receive less traffic more light. On our profiles, we can pick a bunch of hubs that feature in a "gallery" that fades in and out, right under our bios and above the published hubs listed in the bottom section. This year, my...

Hi everyone! Today we released an update to the Hub Groups interface in My Account. The new interface closely matches the About the Author UI and should be familiar to many of you. Please note that we did not make any functional changes to Hub Groups (such as integrating it with About the Author)...
