This thread is a great idea and would tack on nicely to something I've been thinking about for a while:
I don't know about the majority of NS, but I don't use My Threads at all. I'm not interested in saving entire threads (some in excess of 100 pages) just because one post is worth saving. Again, that's just me. There are several threads that are gems as a whole, but 99% of the time I personally pull out one post as a gem.
I think it would be awesome if along with "favoriting" pictures, movies, reviews, or blogs....we could save a single post to a "favorites" section. AKA, right under "Quote Reply" you can hit "Add Post to Favorites" or something like that and then that post would be saved and have a link to the original thread under it.
Example of how I see this helping us out: "Can't find that one awesome piece of information in that one huge thread....can't remember the name but it had the word ski in it....damn, what was it...search bar isn't pulling it up because it's too old....fuck it's gone.....OH WAIT I ADDED THAT POST TO MY FAVORITES!!! SICK NOW I CAN EDIT GO PRO FOOTY EFFECTIVELY THANKS TO IAN PROVO'S EPICLY HELPFUL POST!!!!"
Who else likes this or who hates this idea? I personally would use this daily, especially when one considers the number of single post in Media and Arts that I wish I could pull out individually.
