Search for past posts to communities.

Search for past posts to communities.

Short, concise description of the idea
Create a way for LJ users to search their previous journal entries that they have posted to communities only.

Full description of the idea
I would like to be able to go back and reflect on some of the entries I have posted to communities in the past. But I cannot figure out a way to do this easily.
For instance, say in 3 months from now I wanted to look at this very post again but didn’t want to have to try and find it by clicking “Previous 20 Entries” 100 times. Instead I would be able to go to the Suggestions community and click on something that does a search for all of my posts. Maybe there would be a button or a link that I could click and it would take me to another page that listed only my previous posts to that community. Such as a filter of some sort.
I can also envision this as a page similar to the “Friends Page” except it would be a page that displays all of your previous posts to communities.

An ordered list of benefits
  • The ability to reflect on posts of the past.
  • The ability to retrieve information that you thought was lost in a mass of other posts.
  • Would be able to find your past posts within seconds or minutes instead of hours.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None that I know of.
