    Well, you can click on the Members Button, Click on "Search Members" on right side of screen, Enter User Name and hit Go, then click on your User Name and Click on Statistics and you can then Select "Find all Posts by XXXXXXX".

    That is how I do it all the time.

    Even faster than that - 4 clicks and no typing:

    • Click "Quicklinks" in the "tab bar" at the top of any page.
    • Click "Your Profile"
    • Click "Statistics" in the profile page tab bar
    • Click "Find all posts by [me ... your username]"

    Once you get there, you can even save the page URL as a bookmark to get to it faster in the future.

    In the mobile apps for Android and iPad there is a profile button in the menu bar. Hit that. Posts from you and threads started by you are right there.

    We learn something New every day if we keep an Open Inquiring Mind!!! :lol:

    I've been doing this Forum thing for years and years and I Never perused the Entire Quicklinks either until you mentioned what you did which led me to look further down the Quicklist to find that Entry labeled View My Posts.

    Two maxims come to mind:

    You can't teach an old dog new tricks
    and
    Old habits are hard to break


    I guess it's good every once in a while to explore different features of a site you think you know very well!

    I hear that kind of reasoning all the time... "I have nothing to hide".. Well, as true as that may be, you have plenty to be misinterpreted about. My ex-wife once said, of a criminal case where something was videotaped, "why bother with a trial?". I made up the following "what-if" scenario..

    I used to work at Fidelity Investments in Boston. One Friday every month, I'd be upgrading software and making sure the nightly data processing cycle ran on time. This meant my not getting out until midnight or so.

    Now, there are cameras all over the facility (World Trade Center in Boston's waterfront district).

    Let's suppose I've left the building. I get to the parking lot and realize I left my briefcase inside. I jog back into the building, get my briefcase and leave again, walking quickly and animatedly because it's VERY late and I still have an hour's drive home.

    Moments after I leave, a bomb goes off in the building. Later that day, on the news, there's footage of me entering and leaving the building. You can't see if I'm bringing anything in, but you CAN see me leaving with a briefcase (contents unknown, if any) and I'm NOT walking 'normally'.

    I've just been tried and convicted in the press.

    You have nothing to hide on your phone? I *guarantee* that there's SOMETHING in that data that could be spun into something terrible looking - like some porn spam email that you deleted without looking at or some GPS information that had you going through some neighborhood when a crime was being committed.

    No, you may have nothing to HIDE - but you have plenty that can be SPUN.

    ^^ Well, not only that, but suppose something is discovered missing, maybe some confidential company files, or a problem (bug, malware, spyware, keylogger) is found in the computer system planted by someone else.

    Will they even look deeper than the timestamp where the guy is seen running with a briefcase?

    I would think that right there would incriminate them for federal wire tapping. They admitted it's being transmitted back.
