lj bookmark

Short, concise description of the idea
A tool which would allow you to "mark" a post on your friends page as the last one you read, so that the next time you load the page you return to that point and can continue.

Full description of the idea
For people who read their friends page backwards (ie: in chronological order), when you first load your friends page, you have to scroll back through a number of posts (and sometimes a number of pages) to reach the place where you left off reading. A bookmark tool would allow users to mark a specific post on their friends page (or in a community) as the last they read. When they next login to LJ, they could click on their bookmark, and it would take them back to that point on their friends page (it wouldn't take you to the post itself, but to the post in context on the friends page, ie: skip=30, scrolled down to the post) so that they could continue reading forwards from there.

An ordered list of benefits
  • saves time and hassle when catching up on your friends page
  • also great for high-traffic communities where you want to see what's been posted since you last read

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • programming time

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I honestly have no idea how you actually do this
