You know when it seems like some Peeler's have vanished off the face of the Earth? But sometimes you later find they made a post in a thread you hardly ever go in? Or maybe they didn't, but you just want to know when the hell their last post on Peel was made? And just when did they disappear?

If like me, you've ever asked yourself these questions, you may find the feature I'm about to propose, useful. I think it would be really clool to have an addition in our profiles, which would show the date of when each Peeler made their last post. Then you could just look up their profile to see if they've been long absent, or made posts which you never knew about. And you could see just how long the've been away for, just incase you're curious.

Perhaps adding this feature to the profile wouldn't always be the easiest way to look up though. For example, if the Peeler has been away for a long time, you might have trouble finding one of their posts. For cases like these, I suggest also adding this feature to the members section. And making the following option; 'List in order of most recent post'. This feature in itself would be be really interesting in my opinion. We already have the option of the order when each Peeler registered, but not when they made their most recent post. Having said this, I think it's also important to keep it in profiles too, for easy access in regard to the more regular posters.

Anyway, I think that feature would rule cool What does anyone else think?

You could just do a search by user name.

Hey, I was actually thinking about this recently! I think this sounds like a pretty good idea, if it would be possible.

Yes. For example, I wanted to check on how many thousands of posts Asylum-Fry had by now and couldn't. Has she been banned? Am I going insane?

Probably.

I think that would be a really good feature!

Since you people would probably know is there a way I can reset my time and date thingy on here?Cause it says that its a day ahead of the actual day here and its the totally wrong time.

Please help me!

For example I don't know if Speli has raped any more people recently, but he appears to have vanished off the face of the earth...

A little trick I use to get around the absence of this feature is going to Search and entering a period or a comma (or any common repetetive character or word) and then entering the name of the user.  The results are sorted by date so you can easily find their last post (if that post contained the character you entered, any normal person will usually use at least one period in their post).  Kind of a pain but it works.

I just search for a single space and the person's name, not many posts don't contain at least one space  tongue

Speaking of the search feature: is it possible to tweek it to do a search-all-forums search? Sometimes when you're looking for a specific post it's a pain in the lower back to make 67 individual searches.

67?  eek 

Why might I ask.... do you do 67 (considering there aren't 67 forums)?

You could do a Google search, and type in something like
El Zilcho site:peelified.com

I was going to suggest that, but it doesn't solve the "most recent" problem, because Google can't (to my knowledge) display results in date order...

You're going insane. I never existed   tongue

Sounds cool. I'm all for it, it's nice to know when someone posted last.

Wouldn't that include every page of every thread you posted on, though?

Who did the code for this forum anyways. Isn't it a standard UBB forum with a few modifications? I don't know how this type of forum works, but I know there are plenty of really good forums out there for UBB coding. They'd probably know whether or not these suggestions would be possible.
I know a little more about the Snitz forum (an ASP based forum) and I know they have a "Recent posts" feature as default in the profiles. I'm almost certain this could be incorporated into a UBB forum such as this.
And the "search" function really should have an "all forums" selection...
