  Can submissions and reviews one has contributed be made accessible from the user profile?

+ 3 like - 0 dislike

When logged in I can click on my name on the left in the top menu to land on my profile. From there, General information, as well as my questions, answers, comments, and history are clickable from a new menu bar. However, there is no link to submissions or reviews I contributed accessible from my profile.

Is it possible to put such links for submissions and reviews each user contributed into the menu bar of his profile too (maybe between the entries "General" and "Questions")?

Note that "Questions" contains submissions too, and "Answers" contain reviews too. But I agree a separate tab would be useful.

I have implemented this request now. The list of submissions includes:

  • submissions where the user has been added as author of the requested paper.
  • submissions, where the user has written a review.
  • submissions, where the user was the requester (poster).

The last list is not complete, as the poster has not been recorded before the submit-paper plugin was  implemented, or the user posted a review only on demand of a user that didn't have enough rep.

Very nice, thanks Polarkernel !

Wouldn't it be better if the user subpage were named something like "Refereeing" or "Reviews Activity" rather than "Submissions"? I don't exactly fancy having crackpot submissions listed on my profile when I'm not the one who submitted that ; )

@Dimension10 you might be right ...

@dimension10 @Dilaton Title changed.
