Midwest Archive Board??

Sorry if I missed something but where did this go?? It's the only record of my thousands of posts prior to the Minneapolis-St. Paul board getting launched. I refer back quite often (albeit obviously not in the last little while).

  1. We've taken the archive boards out of the main list of boards since they haven't been active in a few years now. They do still exist in the background, and you can find your posts on them using Search -- there's a 'username' box in the advanced search to help you narrow it down.

    The Midwest Archive, specifically, is here: You can use the little star beside the name of the board to save it to your "my saved boards" if you want to keep track of it long term.

      Thanks! (and whew). One minor glitch is that you can't use Advanced Search and include this board as there is no longer an option for it (why I thought it was outright gone).

      But, being able to search by poster's name helps a bit.

        Hi MSPD. Here's a couple tips that might help.

        You can still search from the board itself to contain your search within the board.

        You can view all discussions you have participated in from your profile. If you page to the oldest discussions you have participated in you can find links to the Midwest Archive board.

          Side note, when I first joined CH, I was posting under a different/generic name. That's one challenge in finding my earliest posts. No worries...just knowing that board is still there is all I care about.
