Shouldn't 'My Threads' be on the main navigation?

Hi,

I have never really understood why sites/forum software don't put 'my threads' on the main navigation?

Don't we all agree this is a often used link we should have quick access to?

The only reason I can think of not displaying it is to either force you to poke around the site OR to decrease server resources.

What do you guys think?

i probably use it once a week or less.
on this forum, it is one click from the main nav, with the rest of your personal stuff in the "Control Panel".

On my part, I use this link frequently, and I added it to the custom HTML, when that feature was available.

As do I, but I'm in the strange (although deliberate) position of having a number of browsers set as default depending on when and where I access the internet. In a way, this is useful for seeing how sites work 'out of the box', but it does make things like bookmarks less ideal.

Personally, I'm not convinced the top navigation is especially user-friendly. There doesn't seem to be much logic to it, for one thing. I wouldn't say I'm a typical user though.

True, for example, the glossary link is something I have and will probably never click on.
