Forum Suggestions & User Assistance - Search sort of works
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

I just got a couple returns on a search of my username, but it left out most of them.

We've been indexing for about 20 minutes and we are a bit less than 20% through. Give it a couple of hours.
Is there any chance that you will abandon this new search? I really hate it. I often do a search for my own user name to see what activity has happened in threads that I have posted in. I can't seem to make it do that at all now. This would be a major blow to the functionality of BF for me.
Before a nice list of threads would come up with bold titles for the ones with new material. Now I get the texts of my posts. I post in several forums, and this will make it very difficult to keep track of the threads I am participating in.

barba, as an alternative, you can subscribe to the threads you post in and get an email. Not the same as a nice list, but you will have something. This can be done automatically in your control panel.
I know, but I am uninterested in being spamed by the forum just to keep track of threads. I get enough email as it is.
Thanks for the tip, though.

Well, you can subscribe automatically to threads you post in and not receive emails. Then go to your profile and click on the link to "List Subscriptions". This seems to give a list of all threads you have posted in, with bold titles that you have not read yet. Would this help?
I'll give it a try. Thanks.
