I used to write HTML with server-side scripts (long ago), but not for a long time, and so I think that the following should be easy for you.

This is a great site. I humbly request an addition to it.

I was reading old articles here and found (from Apr 4 '16) Control External Processes using Scripts - CMD by NeoPa, one of some of whom I have learned to hold in high regard. I wanted to leave the article alone, pristine in its original form, but I also wanted to have a record that I could find quickly that I liked the article. How to do this, I thought. Leave a comment. I did that and now I can look back in my list of commented articles and quickly find it again later.

That (which I did) is not good enough.

I found a solution.

Please, bytes.com gurus, please consider the following:

On the article page it shows to the right

Article Stats
viewed: 6754
comments: 2
date written:Apr 4 '16

[follow or unfollow] this article
I do not want to follow the article. That process is not what I want for this article. For some articles it is applicable, but not for me for this one type of article.

I would like two buttons below the "date written" line:
  1. (1) A "Found useful {private}" button. With a mouseover description that informs the user that "This may be clicked if this one article has been found directly useful to the current reader. This button is for the one reader to use in their private collected fast reference. The private collected fast reference shows up in a scroll-able list that is on each of the logged-in viewed pages of each user."
  2. (2) A "Found useful {public}" button. With a mouseover description that informs the user that "This may be clicked if this one article has been found directly useful to the current reader. This button is for the one reader to notify the public that they found this article directly useful to them. The public also (separately) shows up in a scroll-able list that is on each of the logged-in viewed pages of each user."

You have been requested to make some upgrades before this. I humbly request that you do not be the spoon that "does not bend for there is no spoon." This can be done with code. This is a site of amazing coders. If you reject this idea, then fine. But, please consider it.

Furthermore, I would like to see a button beside (to the immediate left of) the title (Example: [button] Control External Processes using Scripts - CMD) which when clicked opens a vertical scroll box that lists (further clickable) the names of ALL of the users that have themselves clicked to say publicly that they found the article directly useful to themselves.

Maybe?

Thank you.

Thanks dev7060. I thought that this idea should be open to other users that might offer some comments on this idea. I expected that experts would decide and do or discard. Either way, this is a great site.
