As a company wiki grows larger, it would be nice to favorite, bookmark, or star certain wiki notes.
The closest existing mechanism, watching a note, makes sense when you authored it or need to know when it changes. This proposal focuses more on the desire to flag certain pages as a useful personal reference for yourself.
You can currently view the Pages you're watching by navigating to My Profile > Watching > Product > Notes. However, this view is noisier than what I have in mind and necessarily Product-filtered.
The goal of favoriting a note would be to highlight it in the UI by:
The cross-Product viewing would make an excellent personalized wiki. In contrast to the watching view it could actually render the notes in-line, and/or with a cross-Product navigation of their hierarchy to the left, similar to the Product-scoped view.
As it makes sense to get notified of changes to notes you use as a personal reference, favoriting should add you as a watcher. However, the desire to take ownership of a page and know when it changes is orthogonal to the desire to reference it easily.
