Add a 'Queue' section to Insructables Answered

This section would be where someone can add a project that they want to make to a list of projects for later. I like to go through tons of Instructables at a time and I don't want to bookmark nor keep a tap open for every one, and I couldn't possibly remember them all. So a button on each slideshow or 'ible that would add it to the list would be really helpful. The list could then be reviewed later so the next project can be decided on; because I have much trouble deciding what I want to make.

That's exactly what your browser's bookmarks are for! For you to organize your own personal interests in your own way.

Or you could support the site with a paid membership, and make use of the existing "Favorites" interface which does what you want.

what is this "Favorites" interface of which you speak?

Go view an I'ble (any I'ble). Look for the little red heart box on the line with the title. Then click on the "You" link at the upper right of the page you're viewing and look at the uppermost section.

I think I found your favorites on your profile and it looks like something just used to show people what you are into. I need something that is just for me and easy to manage. The Favorites function is close, but not what I had in mind.

If you don't want other people to see it, then you should be keeping it on your own computer. That's what your brower's bookmarks (or whatever IE calls them) are for.

What I put in my bookmarks is just the site itself, not 20 pages of one website.

You do know that you can organize your bookmarks into folders, right?

I agree with kelseymh. If you don't want to use bookmarks, then favorites is your best bet, and I think they're really more for the user and not for the visitor to a profile page. If I go to someone's profile page, I'm not that interested in what they like... I'm more interested in seeing what they've made. The other option is to get membership, and then you can download a pdf of the projects you like to your computer, and then reference them (to make them) whenever you want. That's what I do, and you don't necessarily have to pay for membership. You can get it by having an instructable "featured" ("editors picks").

Having Pro membership does have its advantages, and like I mentioned, you don't have to purchase it. Just write a good instructable that is "feature worthy" to get free pro. If you need info on how to write a good feature worthy instructable, then look at this link.

Yes I know, I used to do that but it got too tiresome and something here on the site would just be really helpful.

Good suggestion. It's funny what we overlook at times, especially when it's something we've used more times than we could count.

My favourites add up quick. So you've got to make sure to organize things from the start or they get out of hand and you can't find anything. Folders in folders in folders and lots of other folders plus more folders.

If you're on a shared computer a "cart562" folder to hold all your bookmarks is a good start.

Not sure what people who use public access computers would do though. Store it on a memory stick!
