I am sure this has been suggested many times but what I would really like to see added to BGG is a "Last 10 Posts Function". I would like to be able to click an icon and bring up a list of my last 10, 15, or 20 posts. Often I make a few posts in different forums over a day or two and when I want to check them I either can't find them easily or cannot remember exactly where they are. I think it would be a pretty simple function to make a link to do this.

You might try adding yourself as a geekbuddy, and seeing your recent activity that way.

Thanks. That may work but it feels a little Narcissistic.

If you have an RSS feed reader, like Google Reader, or Netnewswire, or somesuch, that you use to follow sites around the web, you can also follow BGG feeds for many things, users, games, etc. Very handy.

I personally use Google Reader ( http://www.google.com/reader )

When I tried this, I got a message that said I couldn't add myself as a geekbuddy.

Hmm, you're right - in the past, I thought others had done it, so either you used to be able to do it, or they were doing something else and I misunderstood.

Save the links in your Quickbar.

Let's spell it out a bit more for others who are unfamiliar. A reverse-chrono listing is available by clicking on the numbers you see on the CONTRIBUTIONS tab after selecting MY GEEK from the main menu.

Yes, I am aware of this (though until you spelled it out I had no idea that is what was being said) but in the day of rapid computer data access, this is not very efficient. Having to check every entry category is pretty slow.

I don't feel much burdened myself since a very high majority is covered simply with "Site Forums" replies. The other categories are entered less frequently for me.

We need a microbadge for this with a scroll-over that says...

"I'm so awesome, I'm my own geekbuddy."

You can't actuality do it, but its still a funny idea possibly.

I would try adding myself as a GeekBuddy, but my invisible friend would be extremely jealous!

You can see anyone's most recent posts by dropping down the arrow under their name in the avatar block, and clicking RSS Feed. You can also subscribe to these feeds, which sends the info to an RSS reader application of your choice.

Unless you are also interested in several other RSS

I added myself so that way I can include my ratings when I do geekbuddy rating averages:

One thing I have wanted is to be able to call up a preview of just a single line from each post when looking at the list of posts in contributions. I post a bunch in the microbadge thread, and then days or weeks later when I want to find the specific post where I proposed a badge or made a poll, all I see is a list of posts with the exact same topic line.
