When I try to set a page as favorite I get:

When is the next site update that the feature will be available to free members. What's the point in being a member if you don't get a favorites button? I used to be able to use it and I've always been a free member. All my favorites are erased. When will this come back?
They aren't erased, just not accessible.

Unfortunately, the ability to favourite projects is restricted to Pro members.

The bug is the content of the message, not the failure to favourite.

That's rather gross. How can I close my account?

I'd rather just use this nifty feature my browser came with free of charge. It's called "bookmarks".

It's also wrong - as of the next site update, favourites are available to free members as well.

Then I misunderstood. I read that the ability to favorite projects was restricted to Pro members only. I assume you meant "as of right now". There was no mention of it becoming free.

It was a misunderstanding on Kiteman's part (and on mine as well!).

When the paid membership system was first developed, last year, it originally had the "Favorites" system restricted to paid members. That was changed fairly soon after the rollout, so that all members, paid and free, can use the Favorites button.

However, there appears to be a bug in the current version of the database software on the I'bles servers. It is supposed to be fixed the next time the software is updated.

In any event, I think you were right in the first place. The "bookmarks" feature on your browser is much better than the "Favorites" anyway. You can create categories (folders) to group things, you can use "tags" for searching, etc.

Thanks for the clarification. =)

What Kelseymh said - the situation changed since I made that post.

Good news - this bug is on the immediate-fix list.

You should be able to use favourites after the next site update.
