Still patiently and politely waiting.
Bastard, I'm an Admin on this Forum, and if I choose to use CAPS for EMPHASIS, I don't expect you to criticize me for it or make a correction. That goes for every member of this Staff who volunteer their time to keep this Forum running on an even keel.

If you would like to discuss this further, you may do so via PM to me, not in this topic.

The only person that can add this feature, if it even is an option with our software, is the owner, Jeff Kreacher. Personally, I don't see the need for it. I like the "VIEW YOUR POSTS" link.

Your reiterations don't really come across as patience.

Bastard, I don't see the need for it either, when you can simply click the link already provided.

Have you noticed that your example is of an Invision Power Board (IPB) and this is a PHPBB board? Not every feature of one board is available in the same exact format as another. Not to mention, the PHPBB "view your post" link allows you to view all of your posts from all sections in a row with all recently updated ones on the front page. The IPB board requires you to view each individual section to look for your posts.

Yes, I understand they are different boards, and I don't see as many of the BC type as I do the PY type, which is why I am not sure if the feature is available, just like everyone else so far doesn't know either. But it is a feature I like, so I suggested it.

No it doesn't, at least on PY it doesn't. I am able to view all my posts retained since their last server swap. In addition to the feature being discussed here, I am also able to view the same comprehensive list of posts on PY equivalent to what is available here on BC.

Then when we click that link we see:

Bastard, you seem to be in a major minority on this one. There'* not another person in this topic that thinks this idea is more functional than what the board already has. You have to click your mouse one time to get the information you're asking for.

Please reply to my PM.

still a minority, but i do like the idea.

like if you are browsing through the individual forums, eg: forced induction, you can see a lil notation that you have posted there. and you dont have to load the home page, and then load a search. probably more of a benefit for the lower speed connections, ie, dsl 56k.
