"My messages" link on forum


#1

Most of the time I open tinyclr forum i do 3 things:

  1. search for topics i have created in hope of receiveing anwserws to my questions

  2. search for topics in which i wrote a message and see if the issue/question has been resolved

  3. search for new topics that have not yet been resolved and i am able to help

Now, for number 3 i use “Unread messages” or red icon next to topic header - this works for me. I think we could use some extra links to help with nr 1 and nr 2. “My topics” or “My messages” would be helpful in my opinion.

Another good option would be to close the thread if the issue was resolved.


#11

Agree, closing threads would save some space on forum.


#12

To save the space means removing these threads, then we would loose the knowledge and ability to search in these threads.

Some members marked their threads as [CLOSED] or something like that. Automatic way of “closing” a thread that way, would be a time saving feature.


#13

Yes!! Resolved problems are more valuable that ongoing problems.

But I agree with the “My Messages” but our cookies are gonna get big if these are to be stored.

Sory Architect i was writing this in a hurry… What i meant is that right now all posts seem to be active (if you mark all as read than you have no knowledge about which one is active). Adding a RESOLVED tag would make some space for those threads that still need attention (if e.g. filtering was added)


#15

Our cookies should not get any bigger. The database knows who posted what and the cookie should be associated with our user accounts so it should just be a simple query of select forum entries I started or I posted to.

+1 for this.
Right now it’s a disaster to keep track of what I did… so sometimes I simply give up.

But hey,
here’s a crazy idea, can’t you just license StackExchange?
Or cut a deal with those guys?

I mean, there’s nothing better than that (check www.stackoverflow.com for example)

Closing threads would save some space: +1
Maybe add the feature to search in Archive or Solved?

Search for topics i have created: +1
Search for topics in which i wrote a message: +1
