A "find all posts by" would be a great feature. For instance, there were times in the "Iron Sun" threads where I remembered Dave said something I wanted to find, but couldn't remember how far back it was in the conversation. I'm sure you can imagine how tedious it was to flip back through 15 pages of comments per thread, and there was something like 13+ threads, just to find a single quote. Knowing that Dave posted in a particular thread wasn't very helpful in that instance. Like, at all.

True, but in a discussion like that, you really need a specific word search, and even when it works, it won't always do the trick if your memory is as bad as mine.

I resorted to keeping my own log of key points, dates and post URL's so that I could say "but remember this...". (un?)Fortunately those sorts of debates are few and far between.

Better, perhaps, for us to solve our search problems.

I hear ya!


John's just this guy, you know.
