Is it wrong to want a Participated Threads extension?

    you can save a search for your username (lament:) which will then appear under Searches in the sidebar... I've given mine the very exciting name of 'My Posts'... lol...
  • that sounds like something that might be possible with a saved search, but until nav releases the docs, i don't know
  • there you go. (search in comments) just tried it and it works. thanks 3stripe
  • yeah that's cool.. thanks..

    how do we know what limit Mark has set for the number of topics to be displayed in the side?

    i guess we could ask..
  • settings->application settings i believe
  • But it's not quite enough... You can search for comments you've made. But there's no indication if anyone has commented since your last comment in that thread.
  • participated threads would be key.

    because i just found out someone asked me a question in another thread and i totally missed it..
  • I think the limit on sidebar thread titles is 5.

    I think the closest thing I've got to a "participated threads" thinger is this: Account Tab > Forum Preferences Then check the box next to "Display your discussions in the control panel" It will contain all of the discussions you've started. I realize that won't contain every thread you've ever posted in, but it's a start until someone gets to write a "participated threads" extension.

    Oh, and there's always a namewhore search.
  • I'm just gonna throw another vote in here for a Participated Threads thingee... That would be lovely...
  • i've got $5 in cold hard PayPal cash for anyone who does this.
  • lechlech Chicagoland
    for $5 i'll tell you to get back to yayhooray :)
  • for free I'll tell you that you're not funny.

    actually, This could be a semi-useful feature which would save you from hunting down your discussions via a 1500+ discussion entry list. Maybe something totally seperate from threads you started. Just ones you've participated within. Could be a useful replacement for the "show all" history button, does anyone even use that?
  • The easy way out on this one would to be an advanced search for comments by your username. But an extension would be handy. It wouldn't be very difficult, either. I could hack that out fairly quickly, but I would want it to be user-customizable--as in to have the option of specifiying how many recently participated threads to show. And I can't/don't want to do that until all the user preference docs are up. (I don't want to do it all ass-backwards then get shown how to do it very easily)

    Anyhow, I'll try and hack something together tonight when I get home from work.
  • i was thinking it would be a tab up top, and clicking Participated Discussions would simply list all of the discussions you've participated in.

    listing it just like discussions..
