Is there a function to sort messages by icon?

I don't know if its an implementable forum software function, or a mini-script an Admin could write, but if we could sort the topics in a sub-forum by icon, all posts by the current user could be grouped together.  I suppose its mostly ego-surfing, but it might be a more convenient way to find something you remember posting once before, but can't find via the search function.

As far as I know there is no ready solution. I will take a look when I have some free time, but I am rather busy recently, so don't hold your breath :(

Sometimes advanced search can help. Search for all posts by a given user in a given subforum, and the result will be similar.

Thanks.  The dilemma about Advanced Search is, even isolated by user and sub-forum, you still have to search for something, and no, you can't search for " " or " a " or " the " -- search doesn't accept that.

'Course, often enough, I quote Deep Thought and "Hmm ... tricky" when faced with the borderline impossible.  I'm kinda predictable in other ways I'm sure. ;D
