Good afternoon.

I have had a couple instances when I wanted to go back to past posts to find something I had previously researched. However when I get to my posting history I cannot find it, because the post history only goes back for a limited number of posts. I don't recall that being the case before; if I recall correctly you could go back in that manner indefinitely.

Is that something that was implemented to save server space? Not a feature of the updated software?

Obviously it is a very low priority in terms of tools and features, but I did find it useful on occasion. Same holds true for looking up someone else's past posting history.


Thanks

I noticed that too. I have to reindex them. Planning on doing that tonight after I run an update.

Try it now, it finished recompiling a bit ago. Although I noticed it only pulls 10 pages of results so if you want to go back farther, you have to use the date fields.
