"My Threads" in the new forum design?

    Question

  • I used that a lot in the old design, just on the right below my username. Suddenly it's gone and a pain to get to my asked questions. Is it gone, did I miss it?

    @Microsoft staff: Please … never mark a reply as answered, if does not absolulety apply or if it is just useless troubleshooting gibberish. (I say that for a reason, because you regularly mark absolutely useless replies as answers. Sometimes a problem is hard to solve, or not ata ll, and therefor stays without answer. That is sad for everyone, but *you* must accept that fact!

    If you have got questions about this, just ask.

    files they choose to open would always exist

    But that gives you a list of all threads you've responded to in all forums. Previously, we were able to see what we responded to with the "Bell" icon in a specific forum, and can page back a page or two using the page numbers. Now it makes it more difficult to keep track, which ultimately result in reducing the customer's expectations.

  • Agreed. It would be very helpful to filter "My Threads" by forum.

  • Just have read it. As i am a regular answerer in about 8 or 9 forums, i agree with all you had written. For me, the most important points are :

    - who started when the thread

    - who replied last with the time

    - who did propose as answer

    - who did mark as answer

    - the Bell

    - the Colors of answered/unanswered/proposed as answer

    - the username should be at the top of the post or at least at the top and the bottom

    - my Profile should be present in all pages i view, because i  see ( no have seen ) that something had happened with the threads i had contributed by taking a look at my points. 

    - the "My forum threads" needs to come back, or at least some possibility to store the url of my selected forums in my profile.

    And you know what else would be cool to add, a LIKE button. :-)

    Ok, that would be going too far, and the Vote button will work just fine. :-)

  • It looks like we need to post each individual suggestion separately in the Suggestions and Feedback forum. Check if some of the suggestions are not yet posted and add them separately to vote.

    Several of them are already there and one is already implemented as a hotfix.

  • That's a bit much to singularly post each one as an individual thread. I copied and reposted my thread to the Suggestions forum.
