Hi,

On the right side of your page you have a menu called My LQ and the 7th option in that box is called My Threads. That takes you to a list of the threads you opened.

Kind regards,

Eric

The fastest way is to go to the right of the screen, scroll down to the "My LQ" list then hit 'My Posts".

You can also click any username, then hit "Find More Posts by .....". Or you can go to your profile page, go to the "Statistics" tab then hit "Find all posts by .....", and there will be other ways to find all your posts that I cant recall offhand or never knew in the 1st place LOL.

*edit- beaten to it by EricTRA, and I spose that I should have shown you how to find your threads as well, not just your posts... the process is pretty much the same for threads and posts though.

Hi cascade9,

No competition here, you pointed him to how to find his posts and I to how to list his threads. Between our two posts combined OP has all the answers he needs

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Threads are called the questions you post. Posts are answers or better said participation in a thread. If you start a thread then only you (and mods) can close it. Others can only participate in it by posting.

Kind regards,

Eric
