I can almost guarantee no one has ever said anything hot and tantalizing about you.





And,






I just lied in my prior statement.

RE: Suggestion: Let us see if people have quoted us in threads
My most favorite function on every forum is backtracking the threads that I have posted in, to see if anyone else posted in them. Not necessarily a quote or reply to me, just an update.
It is really the first thing I did every time I logged in, and about 20 times a day actually.*

The option before still sucked, I had to type my nick into the search system. Now even this makeshift search option is gone. I ask, what the hell are the programmers or mods doing? How comes they don't know such a useful function?

Subscribing sucks. I don't want dozens of notice messages, I want a list of threads I've ever posted in, sorted by time and marked if anyone else posted in them - and who. Just like it was, only better, a direct button.

We have so many halfway useless features here, new posts, today's posts, live chat... and other inadequate replacements for the backtrack search. All I ever used were the new posts and backtracking - I don't really look through sections, never have.

*) So it was you, spinning the server hard drives all over, combing the database every five minutes?!
