when I ask for "my topics", I see lots of stuff that is not mine, but I don't see my post.

Thanks

I think the Language String is wrong

the page is the "Active Topics" Page not "My Topics" Page

My Topics is the place for "Active Topics" and "Favorite Topics". We couldn't think of a more suitable word. If you have some idea about the title, please share.
To see your posts, you should view your profile. There you can see you recent posts and a link to all the posts you have made.
If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0

Microsoft has done a pretty job at labelling their forum links. They don't actually have a linke for active or favorite topics. They call my posts: "My Threads". Here is what they show:

forums.asp.net does show active threads. They call it "Active Posts"

Hope this helps.

I don't think that everything which is labeled 'Microsoft' should be a template for YAF. I'm almost sure, Steve Jobs thinks like this and his company market share surely hikes 😉.
The asp.net forum looks ugly and user-unfriendly. It looks like YAF in his early infancy.
IMO.

The name was discussed by developers, but currently nothing better was oaffered.

I thought you were asking for my opinion because I'm a native english speaker.

To be clear, what makes the most sense to me for displaying my forum threads is "My Forum Threads".

I'm sorry you understood my suggestions as you should do everything Microsoft does. I was showing examples of where I thought clear english was used to describe forum activity (which is what I thought you had asked me).

Oh, no...
I should had put it more clear. The problem is that we have a horizontal menu and the links should be short. 'My Forum Threads' is too long.
So, in practice, we can't use more than 2 short words in the menu links,
and better one, otherwise layout will be ugly :cry:.
'My Forum Threads' can be used in user profiles. We don't have layout limitations there.
