I haven't been here long and I have only entered a few of the Forum Topics. I find that everytime I post a comment to a Forum, that an entry link to my comment is created. Though that in theory is a nice thing. It actually becomes a bit confusing. For example if I make 3000 comments on 1 forum, there are 3000 links that I have to scroll through in order to find any other forum topic I have also commented on. I am suggesting that a single link be created for each Forum Topic a member posts to. I believe that will be easier for members to navigate between several Forum topics, and it should save space on the HubPages server as well.
I also find that once I have posted to someone else's Forum Topic that it is listed as my Forum Topic posting. That is confusing to me. When it is actually my posting I try to return often, I guess I kind of feel like the 'host'. I like the fact that under the 'your forum' tab any forum I have commented on appears. I would just prefer for the 'actual' person that originated the topic to be listed as the topic 'owner'.
Hope it helps, Mikel
I think thats annoying too... sometimes it would be nice to quickly see who it was that initiated the post in " YOUR" posts. Probably the only way to get it program into the " YOUR" section
And yes they should just show you the last post made not all 3,000. Post this ti ideas suggestions or are we already there. I'll check in " Your" topics later and remeber your name when I see it. Oh wait I can't because I'll be listed as the topic initiator. Yeah, that's crap LOL
I'd like to be able to group thread. Say, if you made multiple comments on the same thread, to be able to see what threads you made a comment on, not each individual comment. It'd be easier to find the thread you're looking for.
It'd also be nice (and may be a feature I haven't found) to be able to find threads that you started, versus just your replies to any and all threads.
It gives you a link to that post or thread that you can use elsewhere, like in another discussion.
Im sorry darkside, but this doesn't seem to be very useful. What's the point? x
If there's a post by say Paul Deeds on another forum thread which has the answer to a persons question, rather than link to the forum URL and tell a person to scroll through the page and find Paul's post, I can link directly to his post within that thread.
I agree that having to scroll back pages is an annoyance. Maybe if there was a simple "plus sign" next to the thread that you could expand to see your individual posts? At least that way, you wouldn't be as likely to lose track of a response you receive in a thread weeks old.

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

I skip religious and political topics. I enter all extreme hubmakeover, need help ask help, hubbers hangout, sandpit forum topics and other random topics that I may like.

Is there a way to delete a Forum Post that you've posted after it is no longer needed?

If this already exists, I apologise in advance.What about having a set lifespan for a forum topic? Just lately I have spotted a lot of forum topics at the top of the list, indicating that they have just been posted in.When I go to read them with the intention of posting a reply, I discover that the...

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much more than the link to the person's Hub.Surely the forums are places to discuss...
