Just a quick question. Wouldn't it be nice to just fetch your existing replies (earlier) on the same thread.
This just stroke me when I try to reply for Certification Success posts. I just need to browser through whether I had already replied or not. Had there been a feature (either a graphical indication or a wording which says -- You had already contributed n posts in this thread, where n is the actual # of posts in the same thread.

However, within in the same thread if there is an indication of whether the logged in user had made any posts or not, is what I look at it. May not be really needed by all. However, just a thought.
IMO, it is generally a good idea to review the topic before replying regardless. To just post, and not know if the topic has covered it, has detoured, or if the OP has changed the question, may be a waste of time. And knowing if you previously posted doesn't help much in this regard.
I had just indicated this facility would be useful for certification results related forum where most of the times the post reply would be 'Congratulations' until and unless there is a need to ask for the suggestion/tips.
It is an interesting idea. I can see multiple ways that this might be implemented.
A "you have 'x' posts in this topic" message
Changing the background color of any posts that you created so that they stand out more
I'll add this to the backlog of feature requests (currently quite long).
Feel free to continue discussing this / adding better ideas / refining the suggestions. Any staff member who looks at the feature requests will come back to this topic to see if there was anything added.
