HI, Just curious if there has been an update or something similar to the site that may have changed one's ability to find their own posts? I've been absent for a while, came back a few days ago and responded to a post. I don't recall why now, but I did a search to find an earlier post, the only post I find credited to me is the one from a few days ago. I don't believe my previous post was over a year ago, but I suppose it might have been. There is a note about the search going back only a year from the present date. My post count is still up around where I would have guessed, I just can't find any of them. Maybe I haven't posted in that time! :unsure:

All of my posts are less than a year old. I usually click on my picture in the upper right corner, next to my name and on the next screen, on the left, there is an option to view your posts. I can find all of my posts since I joined the forum. There is also a drop-down menu in the center of the screen with several options, such as, view my posts, view the threads I have posted in, and a third option. I usually see if there are any responses to my latest posts before I read the new posts.

I too sometimes see "post not available" for some of my older posts from 2 or 3 or 4 years ago. The post title will come up in a search, but will not be accessible. And the earliest posts from years ago don't show up at all.
