    Sometimes I read a question, and I'd like to note it down, in order to be able to find it again later -either because I do not have time to answer in that very moment, or because I'm curious to read other people's next answers.
    A natural way should be, clicking the "favorite question" star, but then how can I make a list of all my favourite questions?
    Thank you!

    There may or may not be a way inside existing MO software, others will know. But there are other options, clumsy but effective. Click on a question, the address for it appears, http etc., you can just save it as a bookmark. Then save that bookmark in a folder called "Good_MO_Questions." On any computer, you can make a text file with the full URL of a question or questions, email that to yourself. I have put the most effort into a text file on my home computer named idiots.txt, which are user id's of people to avoid, principally because they asked poor questions that somehow caught my attention anyway and wasted an unusual amount of my time. This way, after I have forgotten someone who caused me trouble, I can look it up. I also include the question indicating where I experienced trouble with this user. Very personal, I may have been caused trouble by somebody everyone else loves.
    Clicking the "favorites" tab on your user page will take you to ,

    where you will see your favorited questions.

    Well, live and learn. I clicked on my "Favorites" and did not have any. Then I went back to questions, opened the first one listed, and clicked on the little star under the number of votes the question has. It changed color. Then I went back to my user page, now I have one favorite question.

    Amazing. Next thing you know, they will have carriages that are mobile in and of themselves, with out any horses. They could call them selfmobiles.

    I wish I could +1 comments on meta.

    I would definitely buy a selfmobile.

    Thanks, cmcleman (Cam?). I do make an effort. I was a little disappointed that nobody picked up on the Yeats in the thread on "10,000-th question approacheth," see

    I had to change two words.

    Will, I spotted it, but didn't feel moved to comment (and I suspect many others will have done the same).

    Yemon, I think you have hit upon it. Easy enough for me to think of an amusing quote when there is a thread title with the word "approacheth," but hard to predict what will convince others to respond. I must ponder.
    Indeed, Cam it is. I thought I'd be given the option to change my "display name" -- am I missing that somewhere?

    @cmcleman, you should be able to change your user name (=display name on meta) by clicking Account above, then "Personal Information" on the left.

    Ah, thanks, Scott. I figured username and display name would be separate, the former being immutable.
    Pietro -- delicious+tags could work
    For instance, I keep track of follow-ups to my comments by tagging every page I leave a comment and then checking
