Since laarc.io wants to be partly like Pinboard, a place for us to store our bookmarks, I find myself wishing for a place where I could showcase my bookmarks. Two key features I'd like:

a) Allow me to control the order in which they show up. (There can also be a view that's chronological, maybe even with RSS. But when first-time visitors show up I want them to see the greatest hits.)

b) Allow me to organize my bookmarks using tags. You already have tags, give me a view for all posts added by me with some tag.

Some points of comparison:

1. HN favorites. See mine at https://news.ycombinator.com/favorites?id=akkartik. But only one namespace, and strictly ordered by most recently added.

2. Google+'s Collections feature (https://plus.google.com/+googleplus/posts/7ZpGWeou2sV). Here's one that I created: https://plus.google.com/collection/cmGHYB. You can see how it shows up on my profile at http://akkartik.name/google. Multiple namespaces but ordered by most recently added.

3. The old del.icio.us used to have global bookmarks for a tag at /tag/tag1, and user's tags at /user/user1/tag/tag1, with ways to easily jump around between the two. I always thought that was really nice.




To corroborate your position, your favorites already led me to rediscover some good stuff. Really liked that [blockchain article](https://medium.com/@kaistinchcombe/decentralized-and-trustless-crypto-paradise-is-actually-a-medieval-hellhole-c1ca122efdec). Re-bookmarked it on new system. :)

(Speaking of [foo](https://example.com) syntax, I'm planning to add markdown support for that. Stay tuned!)

Oh yeah, that was a slip. I've clearly spent more time posting links on Lobsters than HN recently. Yeah, Markdown or a HTML subset would be nice. Embedding the links is an advantage Lobsters has over HN since it reduces clutter.
