When I click "Search", then "Search for My Posts", the results include threads in which I posted a long time ago in Random Discussion, usually at the top of the list since long running threads receive replies almost daily.

This clutters the results, and I have no interest in viewing replies to a thread in which I posted one time five years ago (maybe while drunk), that has since had 2,483 replies.

Perhaps the Search for My Posts could be modified to not include threads I haven't posted in within the past year?

Mike will be upgrading TSG within the next few months so he may want to wait until after that (unless it's something that can be done without too much trouble) but he could probably add something similar to the "New Posts" drop down that gives you the choice to "exclude disscussions" so posts made in CT and Random won't be listed. :)

Something like that would work. Thanks!

You're welcome. Now we just have to get Mike to add it to his "to-do" list. :D

That's not a bad idea... I'm not 100% sure how I'm going to implement it, but I will definitely add this to the wish list. :)
