Small suggestions that don't deserve their own thread.
I didn't see a general suggestion thread for small suggestions that don't really need a dedicated thread. So I'm making this. Will it get used? Who knows.

My idea is for this to mainly be for suggestions that you aren't passionate about, or don't want to fight over.

RE: Small suggestions that don't deserve their own thread.
Exclamation Suggestion: On the user profile page, I would find it helpful if there was a "Find all Threads posted in" link.

For example we can add it to the "Total Posts" sublist of links, which currently has: (Find All ThreadsFind All Posts).
Possibly change this to: (Find All Threads CreatedFind all Threads Posted InFind All Posts).

Not a biggie, just a suggestion.

Not a horrible idea.

I would like a button next to each thread that leads to my last post in the thread.

RE: Small suggestions that don't deserve their own thread.
Is there any way to list other stats on the member list page...such as, reps, likes received, etc.

Maybe a filter to filter out things like banned and unregistered members...it would make it easier to look through.

There is a similar function. From your profile, click "find all posts". From there it should be fairly simple to find the threads you've posted in as it is listed on the left side of the screen.

Not that I am opposed to your idea - I just think it would be a huge hassle to add that feature. To accomplish that, I think we'd have to figure out how to code the math of that function, backup the server (just in case), modify the code, and test. And the gain would be minimal. That's my take anyway.

If you click the little green arrow next to a thread you've viewed, or commented in, it will take you to the the newest stuff in the thread you haven't seen yet. Unless you specifically want one for YOUR last post in a thread, ignore my advice Tongue

I would love to either have more mobile features or maybe even an app Smile

Thanks for the feedback! My reasoning is that looking through hundreds of posts is not an efficient way to deduce all threads posted in. And, depending on how the DB is set up, the logic behind it should be similar to the "Find All Threads Liked For" query. If "liked" is a column used in the "where" clause for that query, it would be that same identical query less that portion of the "where" clause. Or perhaps just not joining to the liked table (guessing at structure). But it totally depends on how your MySQL DBs are layed out.

But like I said, it's no necessity, just something I've noticed myself wishing I had multiple times. If it is too much trouble to implement, I'm not gunna fight for it Tongue haha.

Personally, I don't use the mobile version of the site, even when viewing the forum from my mobile. That way you get all the features. You have to change your settings in User CP for that.
