Checking all past posts

This may have already been done or suggested but:

What about setting an option to check/list all your past posts by thread and/or topic?
I thought this would be a great idea, usually it takes me about an hour just to locate and reply to past threads/topics.
Is this just my selfish thought or are there others who like the idea?

Kind Regards,

Search->Advanced search
Type in your username on the right
On the left, under Search options, change "Find posts from" to "a week ago" or whatever you want.

Anthony2 - an alternative is to click on your own name, either in a thread you contributed to (such as this one) or on the index page at the bottom where all active members are listed (your name should be the first one). Then select the appropriate item: "Find more posts by Anthony2" - or - "Find all posts by Anthony2".

This will give you a complete list of your posts up to the limit allowed by the search engine (currently 400). In order to see more or to refine the list, you need to use Search with its various filters as tyme described. The 400 limit is still in effect, but by using the time filters, you might be able to find older threads.
