It would be really, really nice if ...

Of course, I'm sure I'm not the first poster mentioning this, not by a long shot. And I rate my chances of it being implemented along the same lines as me winning a lottery (if I ever bought a ticket for a lottery).

I really would like to be able to use my profile and find - at the very least, threads started by me.

Having made several thousand posts on other people's threads, I can't really use any lookup (or the super-smart Google search of the entire Tom's site with my handle as a keyword) to find threads I've started and that may have some good answers.

I can see that allowing 3rd parties to look at a user's post history will present a few issues (not as many as the convenience that posting histories present users on other sites), so I won't ask for that, but for the very limited subset of threads started by me.

And with that, it's off my chest again - hope is funny that way, it keeps arising. :)

Actually, no, I didn't know that. However, it's much the same as the person before you. It simply shows me the 4,900+ topics I posted on. I'm really looking for threads that I started.

For instance, I once asked about storage devices, SSDs and NVMe. Got a useful reply, but now that thread is lost in the midst of all the other gumpf.

I just did it right now, "More" then "Search By Author" and put my own name in, in quotes. All that came up was the 20 or so threads I started on my own, not the 3000+ I've posted in.

Crud, I owe you a huge apology. You're right. Thanks! Great help.
