And how do you view the public side of your own profile? Find one of your posts so you can click on view public profile? Thats the point though is finding your posts... When you go into your own profile there is nothing you can use to find your posts. The "public profile link takes you to edit your public profile.
At the very least the search screen could have a "Find my posts" option so you don't have to waste time with multiple searches.
I have 68 posts to my account, had more before my account was deleted (maybe from inactivity?) I just ran a search for my posts and had only one result, a thread that I posted twice to. Where are the other 66 posts of mine? Even from my public profile the "access to whole list..." link only finds the one thread.
What about posts in articles? Can those be searched and found?
