Once I've saved a discussion by clicking the yellow star, how do I retrieve it?

Looked at my profile, which is where I thought it would be and can't find it.

  1. They're in your profile under the "Following" tab and then "Discussions". Of course it would be more intuitive if we "followed threads" instead of "saving discussions", but that's just another facet of the great mystery that is Chowhound.

      Not true -- in my case -- tried to save this thread:
      but it never happened! Just disappeared.

        Not true?

        When you go to the thread, is the star yellow or grey?

        Did you go look in Following > Discussions? That's not the same as My Activity > Discussions (Gah, this CH newspeak is so irritating!)

        I just saved that thread and found it in my profile. If it doeasn't work for you, you need to take that up with Engineering.

    2. Thanks. You're right, not intuitive at all.

      1. I'm sure glad you posted this because I had all but given up trying to find the discussion I had "saved." Could they have made this any more challenging?

          +1 there seems to be some kind of mystery code in operation around here - an assumption that everyone just understands how to do things, find things, etc. Site talk is invaluable for this but I am sure that only a tiny fraction of site users ever get to this page and find out about the mysterious functionalities and customizing options on this site.
