Hotlisted posts - Make it easier to find them

One thing that I think would be very useful is adding a quicker way to find my hotlisted diaries. I don't hotlist as many as I used to because it is 4 or 5 very obscure clicks away to find them again. I think a link should be in my Welcome Back box. Hotlists are important enough to request at the top of the diary and report on the diary lists yet not important enough to make it easy to find. I used to hotlist a lot of diaries so that I did not miss reading them. Now I have to hope I catch them before they burble past me on my stream.

I will gladly give up my link to Hiddens to make space for a link to "Hotlisted".

    This is a good suggestion. Whenever I want to find mine, it takes me 5 min to remember where that particular menu lurks. It used to be easy. Make it easy again! Hotlisting is one of the first things you can do when you see a diary; finding your hotlist shouldn't be such a buried and tortuous process.

    Thirded. Please include this in a future update, I can never remember it's buried in the "Following" menu.

    Fourthed - or should I just ditto. Takes me a long time to "remember" how to get to them and more than a few crash and burns on the way there.

    Yes, please. I'm still looking for mine. But maybe that's a good thing, to make me more humble. heh

    Yes, I just tried hotlisting a diary for the first time. And now I have no idea how in the world to find it! Really bad user interface.
