How far back do the CF archives go ?

I cannot find some of my earliest posts.

Search Posts Made By: GordMay - Showing results 1 to 25 of 500 (All 2009)
Search Threads Started By: GordMay - Showing results 1 to 25 of 500 (Earliest 2005)
500 + 500 = 1,000 Archived
Total Posts = 11,175
Apparently missing from archives = 10,175 posts

I don't believe anything is "missing," Gord, and all of your posts remain in their places in the Forums they were posted to. However, I believe the software only accesses the last 500 posts when you click on "Find all posts by GordMay." If there is an earlier post that you wish to access, I believe a Google search on the topic the post pertains to will find all of the relevant threads. If you can recall the title of the thread you believe the post is in, it will speed the search, but even without that, you should be able to find the "missing" post. That has been my experience, at least.

Yup - The forum software has a search limit on threads returned, set at 500. This is mostly in deference to not bogging down the servers... We don't remove old content - no worries.
