Are my old posts gone?

I imagine that old posts or old unused account posts might be purged from time to time, and it's really quite fine and understandable.

I had been away for several years and, happily, my account and its blog and albums remain. But recently I went looking for some older posts and "Find all posts" turned up nothing, so I was just curious how this works. Is it a time thing, or inactivity, or both?

Maybe this topic could be added to the forum FAQ ... I imagine I'm not the only person to return after a hiatus of several years.

Thanks in advance,

Zoom.

Re: Are my old posts gone?

If you can tell us what you tried to search for that would be very helpful. How far did you try to go back and what parameters did you enter?

Also, we have in the meantime restructured some of the forums so it is possible that a post may have been moved.

Re: Are my old posts gone?

Welcome back. When I click on your user name and then "find all posts by
zoomman" I can see a bunch of posts going back several years.

And when I use Advanced Search, just putting zoomman in the box brings
up all your old posts.

Re: Are my old posts gone?

I think search results are limited to 500 results, so you have to use the search options to find posts before those 500.

zoomman, your posts do exist.

As far as I know, there is no policy for purging old accounts or posts.

Re: Are my old posts gone?

Thanks everyone. Trying "Advanced Search" and my name did indeed turn up the old stuff (really, I can't believe I didn't try that --- oops!) And yes, I hit the 500 posts limit with "find all posts by," and didn't see a way to search for more, so like a person encountering a closed door that says "PUSH," I of course pulled.

Thanks again. Now, what was I looking for.

(Edit: Found it )
