I've been away for a few weeks. Today I log in and instead of 2 or 3 pages of my posts, I find maybe 15 posts under "view your posts". What happened?

Using a search on you : https://forums.gentoo.org/search.php?search_author=audiodef
I see 229 pages of results.

It seems "see my posts" has some problems.

The first thing I thought was maybe some mods or admins did some cleaning up, but since you're a mod, you'd know. Maybe it's good I mentioned this.

Just checked and it's the same for mine, it only seems to show the last 2 months.

From memory, it shows the last 6 weeks worth of posts, so posts drop out of the window for 'show my posts' .
A long time ago it showed many more posts.

Your posts are still there, unharmed.

Ah, OK. Having it show much older posts was very useful.

It has always been like as far as I recall. It shows only about the last two months. If you want all the posts you would have to search by author.

audiodef,

Well, that depends on your postcount.
I don't want to wait for 30k posts to be found and downloaded :)

I just went to "view your posts" and instead of a couple of pages of threads I've participated in, I see only ten threads.

Did something go wrong?

Don't think so. The "view your posts" link is date limited; looks to be about 45 days although I couldn't find the specific setting. Looks like you've taken a little bit of a hiatus from the forums.

Oh, OK. That's cool. No hiatus. Been checking in, working on Gentoo Studio and stuff. Thanks for clarifying the date thing.

Thought this looked familiar. Merged the above three posts with audiodef's similar query from May of this year. ;)

yeah, the search features are broken. i have to use google to find my posts here. google doesnt have a feature to search posts that occured in the last 2 months though so i find posts from years ago to dig through also.

I can't see all of my posts if i click the View your posts from right side link.
I have total 77 posts, but clicking the view your posts displays less than 15 posts, why?

What can be the reason?

Hi, it is because it has some time limitation and doesn't show posts older than that but I don't know how is this limitation set exactly.

Teegrins, colag!


Indeed, as Woofie mentioned, there is a limit of sorts. The “ego search” (View your posts) shows posts from within the most previous six (6) weeks, according to NeddySeagoon here.

To find all one's posts, one can use the profile page for example (the link would be: https://forums.gentoo.org/search.php?search_author=colag for colag).


I hope this helps! ^^
