search on user icon feature


Could I have a icon that click on that brings us my list of postings?
I know I can use search to get this result but its getting tedious doing it everyday. If is was a separate feature then maybe there could be some way of closing the post i.e. will not appear on furture lists. I would also like to be able to see a list of "watched" threads on this list too. Its just a suggestion.
The content is what brings me hear, but these feature requests would make my life easier when I am here.
thanks

go to your control panel (the User CP button near the search button) and click on the words "Subscribed Threads" it's near the bottom of the screen.

That only brings up watched threads, not all the threads you have posted to. I think such a button or link, as on the Gentoo forums (fora, if you're a Latin speaker) would be useful.

I thought that any thread you post to automatically becomes a subscribed thread.

I thought that you had to manually unsubscribe from threads. Anyway you can search for threads that you have posted in, say you unsubscribed from one you were watching or whatever, the search facility on this site has the capacity to search for username.

So just search for your own username, that will show all the threads you've posted in... Hmmm, I've just had a go, it seems as though there is a limit of 275 results...

Automatic subscription is an option in your UserCP. You can click the search button in any of your posts to see all of your posts. There is also a link in the upper right hand of your profile page.
