I have about 10,000 or so bookmarks. On occasion, I need to reorganize them into folders due to a reinstall. EVery click-and-drag to move a set of bookmarks into a folder, however, takes several seconds. (If I try to open the folder as a separate window and drag the bookmarks to the folder window title bar, then it becomes horribly slow.)

I suggest that CCP write a DevBlog about how bookmarks work internally and give some consideration to improving bookmarks.

Thank you in advance.

Supported. Every day I have to use bookmarks, sharing them between people copying back and forth. I'd love to know more about them (and possibly how to optimize my own and the servers' use regarding them).

oh god yes.

The original "fix" of having a delay in copying was made on purpose due to server performance issues (oh how so long ago that was...), but that does not excuse the fact that managing them via folders and such is a complete pain. If you reinstall, have fun setting up your folders again. The whole system sucks. Keep the copy delay, that was a game design issue...and promotes people to get their own damn strategic marks.

Fix the manageability of them.

Hmmm.... I've been copying to my alts the bookmarks that I've been collecting. I'm now noticing that in a mass-import-to-People&Places operation for bookmarks, it takes about 14 seconds for each bookmark to be imported. My alt has 13000 bookmarks (thirteen thousand), and it looks like importing another thousand bookmarks is taking four hours.

Bookmark system is in terrible need of an overhaul.

... wait, that bookmarks copy delay is intentionally coded in? Surely that's just a horrible tale told to frighten small wormspace dwelling children to get them to eat their broccoli?

Bookmarks should be kept in the folders we put them in. god knows I had to reinstall the client over 30 times.
