    Can I mark someone's question/query as favorite so I can, later, check out the answers posted by the native speakers? I found many questions posted by other learners, which I found interesting and was curious to know the answers to, But couldn't find them later. I know one can find a post by typing the thread title in 'search bar', but it's hard to keep tons of thread titles in mind.

    I don't know. I'd bookmark them, give them titles that remind myself what the subjects are, and give them their own bookmark folder.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    If you really want to be bombarded by emails notifying you of every response to a thread, by all means enable subscriptions. If not, the easiest way to find any thread you started yourself is to click on "Quick Links" then "My Threads". Any thread titles that appear in bold have responses you haven't read yet. If you want to see any thread you've taken part in, click "Quick Links" and then "Subscribed Threads". Again, anything in bold has responses you haven't read yet.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
