I presume it is some kind of mechanism to help me keep track of things for later revisiting. I see I can click to change the state of the star. But I don't think star is the right name for this thing, as I can't find "star" in the help or Meta. I've looked in my profile too.

I am most interested in going back to the questions that I have clicked the star in earlier.

The star indicates things that are called favourites ("or favorites") in the documentation and interface.

The help guide explains how to search within your favorites: https://apple.stackexchange.com/help/searching
