Build-thread profile link - suggestion

I was wondering of the possibility of adding a link section to the in-thread profile information where one could link their build thread. I've seen a couple people put their links in their signature which works but limits the intended use of the signature area. I know you could search or click on someones username and see their posts, to be able to find their build, but a quicker or more direct link would be much more convenient.

When I see a post on my build thread, the first thing I'd like to be able to find is their associated (if present) build thread.

Have you been using the user control panel?

Every thread I post in pops up the there every time someone posts in that thread.

There is also the bar on the right hand side of the page.

Not sure if that helps.

Yes I'm aware and use both. I may not be presenting it clearly. For example:
Intalleyvision recently posted on my build thread and I was not aware that he himself had a build thread. In order to find his, I clicked on his name then "find more posts by..." and found the thread he posts most often on which happened to be his build thread. If a link box were present under say "Join Date" or "Rated Cap", I could tell by looking there that 1. he even has a build thread and 2. follow the link to said thread.

I do the same thing if unsure of who someone is.

As this site gets more members, it's getting harder to keep track of who is who.

That's why I go read everything in the build thread section.

To me a persons build thread is their resume. It tells their skill level, and if I want to take any advise they give. Some are at different points than others.

I'm a walk the walk, before talking the talk kind of guy.

Interesting idea. I'll see what can be done. In the meantime, I edited your signature a little bit to increase visibility for your build thread.
