Although in the past I've posted a lot of rubish and noob questions in this forum, there are also a few posts that remain of interest to me. Unfortunately, when I ask 'view your posts', I only see a fraction of the actual posts ( a few months worth). Is there a way to ask: see all your posts' ?

E.g. is there a preference under profile that could govern this ?
Alternative, How about the ability to 'mark' interesting threads from the past (regardless from whom), and allow a 'see all marked posts'.
This would be good for some posts of which you say: 'I should never forget this'.

Alternatively, visit your own profile page and follow the "Find all posts by javeree" link. In both cases, the search returns a maximum of 6666 results unless you search for topics from the page sebaro pointed out.

javeree,

At 195 posts, you have problems ?

I bookmark my most useful posts and use google to search them all when I need to.

That's also what i keep doing, hit search and enter NeddySeagoon as author, best way to find useful ones.

Except this one (because of typo), that is hard to find, so i just put it everywhere i could to remember it : http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-819042-start-0-postdays-0-postorder-asc-highlight-neddy.html

@desultory
Thanks, that is just what I was thinking about

@Neddy
No, at 195 posts, I don't have problems. It's more an annoyance about a user interface that seems to promise to show (all) your posts, and then doesn't. To me that feels as if someone had to put in extra effort to cripple the behaviour.
Regarding bookmarks, I have more usefull posts bookmarked from others than from myself (only 5 out of 195)
