    looking at my old posts

    i would like to look at some of my old posts from over 2 years ago. is there a practical way to get to them? the only thing i have found is the activity page that only works on a discontinuous scrolling method. even if i were to spend that much time scrolling and loading more, there is no assurance it can handle them that way, or even if they are saved that far back.

    "Quick Links" --> "Find all my posts" should do it.

    No. I've just found a load of posts of mine from 2006, the year I joined the forum. It took a few seconds.

    Open up advanced search and have a look at the additional options. With judicious use of those, you'll be able to find most things.

    I often use Google for that kind of search, but usually also have a key work or two. But often find too much info. You can add a date range also. Under tools, anytime, custom.
