I have a combination of ways to keep track... I have all the threads I RP in/talk in (usually just OOCs/A&As/and game threads) bookmarked, but I also have a list of the main threads (I'm in a number of groups, and most of them have at least a recruitment thread that has a list of all the other threads I might need) in my first post of my A/A thread
. This list only changes when I add/drop games, so it's always there. This also means that I only need to bookmark a thread I'm actively playing in, in case a game I'm in has a lot (and several of my group games have 10+ threads at a time, and I obviously don't need them all, all the time). Then, I have a "to do" list, which I update daily with a new post. For example this is today's
. I'm OCD enough that if something is "pending" I have to mark it as such, and I have so many games and several fast-posting partners that I also tend to mark posts that just came in that day so I don't feel overwhelmed if I have to add a post to the list while I'm working on my back log.
Obviously how complex or simple your to do list is depends on your workload/individual needs, but that's how I keep track. I just do a daily update and mark things off as I finish them. And then when I put up a new to do list, I just quote the old one, make the edits, remove the quote tags, and post. And the old post gets hidden in a spoiler so I don't get confused. :)
It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is, I promise. xD
