Much as I love CG Talk, I don't always have time to trudge through the masses of information that is posted every day. Which is why I love the plugs so very very much.

However if you're away for a few days sometimes one will pass you by completely, and you miss out. Would it be at all possible to put a back (and forward) button on the sides of the plugged articles so you can go through the recent stuff?

yea.. agreed. Or only plug threads that are in the cgchoice gallery?

My understanding is that plugged articles are not meant to necessarily be the best there is, but posess some element that deserves a look. They also occasionally include news articles etc.

I'm up for a "Plugged" history... I wouldn't think it would be too difficult, especially with the Finished works hosting in place.

This is something cgtalk definitely needs.

I've missed that feature too, so count me in. ;)

I feel it would be somewhat "against" what the mods want the plugs to be - because the plugs are not the CG choice awards, or any other award, but just a "heads up" of the day. And saving the links in an ever-accessible history will turn it into a "second CG choice award". So... I'm not sure we're gonna get that.

But still, I've been missing it for the exact same reason Antrent mentions. -When you come back after a week's vacation, you want to make sure you didn't miss out on anything important. You want to be up to date on the streets of CGTalk. :D

Cheers,
