When I click on 'my threads', I see a list of all the threads I have. Is there a way to search for a particular thread without going down the whole list?

Use advanced search if you have any idea of the subject.

Thanks Erika, I've tried that but it brings up the name/subject of other threads. I just want to weed out threads I've started instead of having to go through the whole list of threads I've started.

When you get to 'my threads' there is an option at the top to click on 'threads I have started' or 'threads I have contributed to' - that should bring the numbers down a bit.

Thanks Dea. I tried that and it does bring the numbers down a bit but I was hoping there'd be a way to shorten the list. I guess I'll just have to suck it up and plod on.
Would be a nice feature though.
