When do I want to click "My Threads" or "My Posts?"

What's the difference? I click them both, and I know they look different. Can anyone explain it to me?

One gives you a list of threads you've posted in.

The other gives you a listing of your individual posts.

Thank you, Dan. Does it really make any difference in ease of forum use which one I click? How do you use them, if you don't mind.

For monitoring posts, I have recently found Spy to be of tremendous use, Maggie. You can filter by subscriptions or just get all the traffic to the site. It's brilliant!

I actually don't use either.

I set my profile up so any thread I reply to gets subscribed to with no e-mail notification. Then if I want to see if there are any new posts in a thread I'm following, I go to my user control panel and it just tells me.

I think I'll change my settings that way. Thanks, Dan!!

Is Spy a third-party program?

The Spy feature is awesome. I will sit watching the baseball game and watch posts scroll by,and anything that catches my eye I can check on.

I'm not sure about anybody else, but I click on "My threads" when I wish to bask in the magnificence of some brilliant rhetoric, and I click on "my posts" when I wish to revel in the sheer sublimity of the English language crafted to perfection.
