It sure would be nice to see a user's most recent contributions by category. Something like

Most Recent Forum Posts:
- 7/18/2011 22:17:44 (link to post with title)
- 7/18/2011 22:03:12 (etc)

Most Recent Geek List or Geek List Item Comments:
- 6/12/2010 16:07:11 (title and link)
- 12/03/2009 15:22:51 (etc)

Most Recent Game Comment:

and so on.

It could list the five most recent contributions in each category.

You could call this the "Matt Gray Where Are You?" feature. :)

And before some people say it, you can't get this info from geekbuddy lists, particularly if you have many buddies and don't want to wait for it to build a huge list and then scroll through it.

Update: just for reference, here is more what I'm looking for, in case Aldie is still watching...

A "most recent activity" log might look like this (except with real links that take me to the content)

2011-07-20 02:27 am GeekAnswer
"Hello 3:27 AM! Depends on which DBA is up for it... the one tonight is good."

...

And then if possible, maybe the most recent 3 or 5 entries in each area would be available if the user expands the screen.

Not in a tidy package, and maybe not categories you desire, but I can find reverse-chrono listings right in your CONTRIBUTIONS profile.

I just have to click each category one-at-a-time.

Yeah, but that requires running through about 20 categories. That's why I was asking for a way to do it without going through 20 screens and seeing what their most recent activity on the site is.

Again this isn't quite what you want (as it isn't categorised), but it might help until the redesign - you can drop-down the arrow in anyone's avatar block and select RSS Feed, which will show you their most recent contributions (uncategorised). Also, I'm not sure if every type of contribution makes it into the feed.

I use the contributions page, and you're correct in assuming that not all types of feeds make it in (particularly the type of "site forum" responses, which ignores some type or another--maybe it's subdomain talk or guilds).

But all I really want is the X most recent contributions of any type, so that I can see when someone last did anything on BGG. If I can filter out particular types (e.g. game logs or game ratings or game ownership activity), that would be even better, so that I could see when they had their most recent *meaningful* contribution. :)
