clicking on top-right "View your posts" link lists only the most recent topics i've posted in, not necessarily the ones i'm interested in. it would be more useful to see list of all subscribed/watching topics.

josephg,

You wouldn't really want to see all you posts. For example, mine go back 13 years :)

The view my posts search shows posts made in about the last 6 weeks.
You can get all posts by a user by using the Find all posts by ... in the users profile.

Hmm, that only returns the last 6666 posts or 267 pages :)
Try Find all posts by NeddySeagoon

Hello NeddySeagoon, I really do! :) Perhaps not all the posts, but definitely all the threads if I can. I have just installed another gentoo system from scratch, and I wanted to revisit all those queries that I initially had. Remember how you salvaged my ass? I might have probably have given up otherwise.

That might be useful, but it is a rather long list. I would rather have a compact list of threads, than a massive list of individual posts.

Hey! I just stumbled upon the same problem. May I suggest some slight rewording? Advanced users probably know already how to navigate the forum, but new users(like me or OP) find the original text misleading. Alternatively instead of `No posts found`, the error message could indicate that it was searching the last 6 weeks.

Just a minor thing :wink:
