How to check if you already posted in the thread?  Reply with quote  

Is there anyway to check if you have already posted? It might help, rather then clicking through the thread pages to see if you already posted. Maybe like a "check" sign next to the thread title would help. Just a suggestion.

Not sure what the point is? If you're subscribed to the thread you'll get email notices of replies to threads you're subscribed to. So that already covers knowing which active threads you're in; if there are no replies since your post why would you even need to keep track?

Aaaakkkkk .... I sound like a mod in another forum who always finds fault with ANY suggestion I ever make!! Laughing

Well, this might help people who reply a lot to other people's threads. If I log out and sign back in the next day, I don't want to make a mistake of answering a person's thread again if I am interested in it. A sign that indicates that I have replied to that person's thread before would make it more convenient in my opinion.

Sorry, I still don't get it. Confused

A thread is a conversation, a discussion. It's fluid and dynamic. It changes. You don't make just one post to a thread and disappear ..... unless .... the only reason you're there is because you have no interest in what the other members are saying, you're only there to say what you have to say (or promote what you have to promote?) That's not a discussion, that's not a conversation. If you're interested in the discussion, then you want to know what other people said after you posted because you probably want to respond to what they said, which means posting again with an entirely different message. So there's no concern about repeating yourself, which seems to be what you hope to avoid.

If you're looking for identify which threads have new posts since you read them last, look at the icon in the far left column. They're a darker color if there've been replies to the thread since your last post.

Oh, BTW, there's no need (and no advantage) to logging out. Your session ends when you leave the site and close your browser. Next time you come back, if you've checked the option in your user profile, you're automatically logged back on. Logging on and off is a wasted exercise, IMO, because it does nothing that doesn't already happen automatically.

But if you think your suggestion is a real must-have, send a pm to Andrew, he's the owner/administrator. Smile
