We can view recent posts of a particular rancher through his/her profile

Let's say I'm posting 20 messages a day. I come back the next day and wanna view those threads (among these 20) where there has been further discussion.

How do you do it?

The starting page has the "Todays active topics" link. On that page you'll what's getting discussed actively, and what the last post was. Of course, it shows all active threads, so you would need to remember which ones you participated in.

The trouble is, sometimes I can only check in evey so often, and I've got
posts in many forums. Remembering which threads I've posted to is also
not that easy for an old geezer like me!

It would be nice if this site had the "watch list" feature that Sun's
Java forums have. You can mark threads to watch (whether or not you've
posted to them). When you're looking at the list of forum threads, an
icon hightlights the ones you're watching. There's also a watch list
page, which is very nice: it lists all your watched thread in order
of most recent activity.


There is no emoticon for what I am feeling!

I agree that a watch list would be nice. Unfortunately, it's not possible with our current forum software.

What is the order of listing the messages on that page?? And would it be possible to add a column naming the last poster?

As far as I know, it's chronological. And fear that the answer to the second question is: no, it wouldn't be easy to add such a column. (Everything is *possible* in software development... )

Perform the following Google Search:
"Your JavaRanch name" site:http://www.javaranch.com

So if I wanted to search for my JavaRanch Threads, I would enter the following on Google Search:

Jesse Torres site:http://www.javaranch.com

Hope that helps!

That's interesting!


Only, if google had a provision to sort the results say chronologically.

On the flip side this feature is the most bug ridden of all the bug ridden features of that site.

Basically when you get a lot of watches it really slows things down.. to the point where some people have had to get watches removed by the administrators because they can longer login.

Personally I think the posting history is pretty useful here. It would be nice if the list showed which threads had been updated and when though.

My number one wishlist for this forum is to have the posts left aligned instead of centered so that long line code posts don't render the whole thread unviewable.

When this happens, just let the bartender for that forum know via private message. They can edit the message to fix the offending lines.

Whoa!! I am persuaded to think whether the moderators are actually getting secretly paid for their services in Java Ranch -- and in bills, lotsa tonsa crisp, green bills!

No bills, neither green nor another color. Just a "Thank you" from time to time...

Thanks.
