    I don't know if this has been suggested before, but it might be a nice idea for the project logs forum.

    How about a button to filter every post except those made by the person who started the thread?

    I know this would remove a lot of useful discussion type posts, but if I've been away a while and there is a big thread, it would be nice to be able to filter everything except the log itself.

    Should be a doddle to code too ;)

    maybe give the auther mod abilites in his/her thread,
    i know i dont want to see spam but i love reading and helping people with thier questions, so the aboive sugestion might be over kill. maybe a heavily enforced no spam rule :idea: as the newcomers seem not to read the rules. there have also been many misposts recently from newcommers maybe you could encorperate the rules into the signup page in a not so subtle way

    My idea was to have it user selectable. When I read a long thread, it would be good to just hit a button to filter out all of the posts except those by the thread starter. If there a response to what looks like a good question, I can click the button again to reveal all the posts and read the conversation.

    I've already got the code to do that and there was a post about it in the mods forum, I reckon it's a good idea too :thumb:
