Are there very old threads that simply no longer exist?
I've been trying to find a thread that I started a long, long time ago. But, it was after the board switched over to the current format. In other words, it wasn't started on the old, Jim Leff message board, it was started after that.
I've seen threads resurrected from 2006 and this was after that. But I can't find it no matter how I search. Were there threads that were just purged for whatever reason?
re: c oliver
After I wrote this post, I found the thread. But I found it by combing through all the posts I've ever written and just looking for it.
It turned out that it was much more recent than I remembered. Still, the search function should have caught it. I'll try your method next time.
I was searching the wrong board. I thought the post I was looking for was on the General Board, but now that I found it it turns out it was on Not About Food.
I am not sure if you have tried this already, but I think it's a decent suggestion. If you go to your profile, look in the All Discussion tab and set the number of threads to display in the page to be 100, you would only have 8 pages of content you can Ctrl+F through. It's definitely a different approach compared to the others who suggest the use of Google, but might work just as well for you since it was a topic that you specifically started.
