Browsing Your Own Forum Posts Should be Easier

So I was browsing through my forum posts, when I noticed that it was incredibly difficult to do. FIrstly, it doesn’t actually show you the post in question, just a little label saying that you did, in fact, post in such a thread at such a time. Second, when you click on the link provided, it brings you to the first post in that thread, and you have to hunt down your post through the pages just to see it. Surfing through large threads with five more more pages becomes quite a hassle.
What should be, is that your forum posts tab on your wall should show all of your posts in their entirety, and the link should bring you straight to that particular post. Just like when you use the search option. Like so:

Or maybe a list of what threads you’ve posted in with a spoiler on it. It would keep the page faster to load (I may be wrong), and it would make browsing for specific threads easier.

I updated it to look the same as forum post search results like in the screenshot. They should also be using the correct page numbers in the urls now.

Holy hell. That is the fastest suggestion-to-feature I have ever seen. Thanks James!

Now THIS is what I call fast work! Great job, James!
