Will the forums ever have a 'find my posts' feature?
 
I seriously would like to see responses to threads that I start and threads that I contribute to but there seems to be no way to find my own posts on the forum so this is impossible. The forums leave little to be desired. I hope that the web devs are properly prioritizing upgrades, for instance, we don't really need portraits as much as we really need things like:
  • Find all posts by myself, Find all threads started by myself
  • Date of original post, Date of last reply columns
  • Read, Unread posts icon for the thread

The odd thing is that these are all standard features of vBulletin, which these forums are using, and just need to be turned on.

Thanks all for all the great work!

There is a way, http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...do=finduser&u=

I'll explain it to you

for click on edit (to edit one of your own posts)
then go advanced.
then scroll a bit down and you see something like this

Reason for Editing:
TEXTBOX
Title:
TEXTBOX

TEXTBOX for editing your message

The underlined should be your name and should be blue.
click on it and you should go to a blank page saying the following "This is not the profile you're looking for"

Now look at the url at the end of it you should see something like this member.php?u=4530XX (Removed the last 2 numbers since it's my own)

This number is your user ID (on the forums at least)
now in the following link fill in this number
http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...duser&u=4530XX <--- Thats where you put in your own number instead of mine

Wow, seriously, wow. The feature of vBulletin right there working perfectly but not hooked up to the profile. Saving that URL in my bookmarks I guess. Thanks. BTW, my user number was a lot different than yours (not just the last 2 digits) but I copied the whole thing and it worked perfectly.

Forum Issues?
 
I actually thought this was odd as well. The website has no real "user friendly" way of finding a prior post. I honestly, sat first, thought that I was just having a dumb moment and just couldn't find anything out of my own stupid meltdown I felt that I was having. So... I opened a support ticket just to ask if it even existed and well... no. Here's the ticket I opened and reply from the support personnel:

"Nov 05 12:41
Hi, I have a quick question about forum posting and I can't seem to find any other information in regards to this issue. I recently posted in the forums and cannot seem to find any way of relocating my posts. There seems to be no form of history for posts in my profile/account page nor does there seem to be a search box provided either. How is it possible to look myself up in the forums at all? May I make the suggestion of adding some way to track prior posts in our profile pages maybe? Or if something like this already exists that I may be missing may I please be directed to understand how to find the information that I am looking for?
Thank you and regards,
Inokiulus"

Summoner,

That is an excellent idea. Thank you for taking the time to send this. Although I am not able to handle feedback reports here in Player Support, Riot Games has established a set of forums for our players to be able to submit their feedback and advice. Rioters check these forums every day for suggestions and insight directly from our community.

NA Forums: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/index.php
EUW Forums: http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/board....php??langid=1
EUNE Forums: http://eune.leagueoflegends.com/boar....php??langid=1

Please know that because our teams receive so many feedback reports daily, we are unfortunately unable to respond to every entry individually. This does not mean your suggestion has been overlooked. We are sorry that we are not able to respond to every post.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me with your thoughts. Your passion for League of Legends and participation are a big part of what makes our community so awesome.

Please let me know if I can assist you with any other requests. Best of luck on the Fields of Justice!

Warmest Regards,

... So honestly I'm glad that I got some help. But the truth is hopefully this thread gets read by the Devs and maybe they'll fix it. Keep posting.

I also just realized that you can subscribe to a thread as you post a message, but in truth, I get enough spam mail. I really don't need anymore lol.
