Is there a quick way to see submissions that need your vote...?

Like a sort, or better yet a filter similar to the platform/game/player drop-down?

I'd find a similar thing useful for subscriptions, since I don't comment on everything I vote on, but I do try to subscribe to them all in order to get any notifications that may be important to my vote!

Just a thought.

    I don't think there is one yet. I've certainly asked after the feature previously.

    The main two sorts I use are the Date and Title. If I've got spare time then sort by date and work backwards from the end - easy to remember roughly where you're up as the tail end barely alters. If I'm short on time, then order by title (whole queue) and can skip over to favourite platforms. As they're alphabetical, getting to the pages with a desired platform is easy and occasionally serendipitously find stuff I'd otherwise miss (stumbled acrossed a pile of ColecoVision submissions a couple of months back that I would never have realised were there via the drop-downs as it's not a platform I'd think of going to).

    By Date: https://www.twingalaxies.com/forumdisplay.php/446-Submission-Review?sort=dateline&order=asc

    By Title: https://www.twingalaxies.com/forumdisplay.php/446-Submission-Review?sort=title&order=asc

    You don't mention it but the User Control Panel has a way to see the subscriptions: https://www.twingalaxies.com/usercp.php ( I suspect you know about it based on the way you phrased it...). I CTRL+click a bunch and then skim-read but nothing quick in that. :(

    If only I were as organised with my votes!

    Some of the available sorts help, but my votes get haphazard at times, so a filter would solve that.

    Control Panel doesn't really give me what I'm after - not specifically concerned with the subscriptions per se... I mean, all going well, I vote, it goes as expected, and that's that.

    It's more for the exceptional cases where I've voted, and subsequent discussion warrants a change in my vote for whatever reason... I want to make sure I'm subscribed so I get those notifications!

    Meh, business as usual , I guess!
