Change "Your Posts" to "My Posts"

Dont you think it makes more sense to read "My Posts" instead of "Your Posts" in Quick Links above?

Not for me. I prefer it when the system 'talks' to me.

It should be "Topics you started or reacted to"

no.. that sounds like I'm reading a story. I prefer if we have it in 2 simple words like "Your Posts" or "My Posts". I think both sounds fine. It isint a big deal anyways.. :)

For me it is more appropriate if it is "My Posts" instead of "Your post" because the user is the one who is reading his/her account and i love to call it My/mine! Just an opinion!

No, I "react" to lots of topics that I never post to. ;) A better phrase would be "Topics you posted in", which would cover topics that you started.
