Past Posts Gone

Post by coolguyclay » Wed Aug 13, 2014 9:22 pm

I wanted to look at an old post of mine, and it's not there. I do an ego search ("View your posts" link in top bar) and all my posts are missing! Well, there are 3 from 2012 and earlier, and one from Monday. Everything in-between is missing. I can still see my Private Messages.

Not a huge deal, but I am wondering what happened. Especially if someone should be alerted to a data loss problem.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

All of the posts in the Trade forums age off of the site. Otherwise, we'd be overwhelmed with data.
I'm wagering that your post was a trade ad or response to one and that the ones you CAN see are not.

::clicks a couple buttons::

Looking at your posts via the link in your profile (search.php?author_id=2882&sr=posts), I see the above post, a few relatively recent trade ad postss, then a bunch of older non-trade ad posts.

That's why you're seeing what you are. Newer trade ads haven't aged off yet and the older ones are in non-pruning forums.

I hope that helps.

Ok, thank you for replying. It seems like it has been about two weeks since the last trading post. I'll keep that in mind!!!

Thanks again,

Some forums prune faster than others. It has to do with the post rate in that forum.
