Is there a way to categorize threads by users of their own

At times, we tend to search for our own threads by going into "my posts" section and it may take sometime as some threads may have the similar names though they are in the same forum.

Is there a way, the users (ranchers) can categorize their own threads within their own account? so that it may be easy to search and retrieve later.

TIA.

Currently there's no such feature. But the search also looks at the content of posts, not just the subjects, so it should be possible to find what you're looking for. Can you give an example of where or how this might be useful?

Thats fine Ulf. Thanks.

Sometimes the subjects what we are looking for may be related with other keywords as well. For example, Overloading with threads. So, if the user is given a choice to have his own categories (something similar to folders in the emails).

Let's say, i may be interested in some of the threads which have a detailed explanation for the queries asked by OP, which i want to save it in my own private category for easy retrieval in future. But how can i have a label on that kind of posts? Because it may be on any topic (SCJP, Java beginner etc).

I agree it can be accomplished through search as well as the search is done in contents of the thread also. But, i thought it would add some more values and facilitate a quick search of such kinda threads.

I think one of the ranchers had posted the similar query today, but in other words (NOT in this forum). I feel it may somehow enhance the managing of threads.

Does this make sense?

This sort of thing might be more easily achieved by bookmarking the threads you are interested in.

Are there very many such posts that you wish to have rapid access to?

Thanks for the suggestion Katrina.

I also know the ways to achieve this. But my intention was to ask whether can we have this facility within JavaRanch?
