Put back MY POSTS in the header.

Before, there was a MY POSTS button that was highlighted if I had any replies.
Now I have to go to My Stuff and then click Posts to see.
Before I could just go on if there were no replies, now I have to remember to keep doing it or I will miss the dialog.
Why was this made more complicated?

changing colors instead of flashing would be better. I still don't like the multiple clicks.

12. My Stuff flashes for all sorts of reasons

For some reason, it is currently for me flashing because of subscriptions. Can't figure out why.

Scroll down to My Stuff notifications.

The first option is:

Show "My Stuff" subscription notifications
The "My Stuff" button will notify you whenever someone starts a new discussion in a forum you are subscribed to, or whenever a person you are subscribed to starts a new discussion


Make sure that's a no and that will fix that annoyance.

It drove me buggy until I figured it out, too!

You can go to settings to change that. I changed mine so that it only notifies me if there's a response to one of my posts

Doesn’t do me much good to flash if clicking on it just takes me to a menu.

what's your problem with that if "My Stuff" is flashing? Secondly, why don't you PLEASE put DU4 comments in Community Help?

I all capped My Post in the title because when I first wrote it, it did read to me like I was clear i meant the POSTS button.

Sometimes all caps is just emphasis or designation and not screaming.
