    Sometimes, I want to revisit a thread or a post that you made, but it's already out of your profile. I'm aware of this
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=Search&am...ult_type=topics
    and this
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=Search&am...sult_type=posts

    But the average user makes many posts a day, and that's just so cluttered. What I'm suggesting is a list of posts in what topic followed by date and time, without the actual post, like this


    [Post number]in[topic name] [time of post][date of post]

    So for example

    Post #3 in "WTF!!! The spring has broken allready!" 1-18-2011 07:41 PM

    and you have like a list of that.

    Isn't that what the search button is for? :/ Or you can google site:gbatemp.net search here.

    The search is also cluttered, and usually google is better than the GBAtemp search.
    But googling for a single post is rather difficult, especially if it's not on the front or last page.

    If you know what post you're looking for, can't you use a phrase from it in quotation marks?
