    I was working my way through the SW:AOTC thread (you know, the one that has reached galactic proportions) and I was working from the back forward. There was a mention of a particular persons post that I wanted to jump to (turns out it was roughly 30 pages, two days earlier). Would it be possible, when searching for a user name's posts to have a link to each of their posts in a thread? Kind of a selectable option to 'view *user name*'s individual posts' next to each thread response. This would then bring a list of ?postid's for each of that users posts.

    I, for one, would really appreciate it greatly. Is this even technically possible with the board software?

    If you click on the number in the replies column another window opens up. This will give you a list of the names of the people in that thread. Then to the right of their names you will see a series of numbers. Click on the number and you will see only those posts made by that member.
