FWIW, I am able to view my posting history, those that haven't been removed, with a link that I've had in place for a while now.   I did post this above in one of my posts, but no one was able to use it to access their posts.   Maybe you'll have some luck.

I've removed my id from the link..  Hope this works for you.

I don't know why the "Ask Question" icon was added here. It, or any other icon, not found on any other forum posting.

 

One nice feature I see returned today. The TOP button is back on lower right. No need to scroll all the way back to top of page. Thank you for that one.

I agree,  the  - TOP -  button is an asset and welcome the return.    I just wish on the multi page threads, the PAGE NUMBERS AT THE TOP were     NOT   removed and only the bottom remain.

Neither can I since we lost the "Expert" status. I believe that only experts and employees have that forum permission enabled.

Re: 2018 Xfinity Forum Redesign Feedback

It might be because you did not join (reinlist) in the Expert Contest.

 

I was really confused when it saw other's who were already experts. If you meant to continue as an expert, I would check in with Comcast Jessie. It looks like the new Forum design might have kept you from getting entered.

 

I really like your new title: Diamond Problem Solver. It looks like a promotion to me.

Sorry EG. I only pointed it out because it looks to me like you made it to the very top of the forum as the Number 1 member out of the 5.9 million members.

 

Many of us here know you have helped more people out than anyone else. I hope they correct their "error" here.

@RobertWy  thanks for bringing this up again.  I've mentioned it in above posts, but was generally ignored.      {message # }   would be a great innovation for directing folks to a previous posting.

Re: 2018 Xfinity Forum Redesign Feedback

I don't know if this problem is due to forum redesign, or just my careless typing.

 

Have any of your here had your reply page disappear from maybe hitting a control key while typing the reply? It has happened to me more than one time. I end up having to start over with a new reply window.

The option to delete posts was for "Experts". Options are fewer for regular members. Closest I could come to deleting one of my posts was delete all information and leave request for one of you to delete the post.

I see you did check the one box. Since the new design, the only difference between your page and mine is that I checked "Rich Text" (from what you had) and checked the last two boxes.

Question about the redesign...

 

Has it always been  that when a user edits a post -  every  edit triggers another email notification to all  those who subscribe to the topic?

I have email notifications turned off, BUT,  at one point, every edit triggered a notation on that post with a time stamp.      Sure do miss that function.

Thanks for the sanity check! Guess I just never noticed before. I need to be more careful about editing after I post so as not to overflow others' inboxes..lol

If you like the function of being notified when there are posts to topics you follow then why did you turn off notifications...just curioius.
