Is it possible to get every post I've ever made here.

I can't seem to do it without multiple searches and even then I can't figure it out.

I'm not going to get into a lengthy discussion why...just because I want to. ;)

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

I don't know what you were tying to do with that but there were "No Matches". :shrug:

The easiest way, especially since you started this thread... is to find any post by you (like the first one in this thread) and click your name.

Then click the "Statistics" tab. You will then see all kinds of stuff, including links to all posts and all threads started by you.

Does this work?

If not, it may be because searche URL's aren't "portable"?

Not sure how far back it goes, but there is a view my posts in the quicklinks tab.

It only shows the last 300 posts ... and then only the first couple of lines of each post.

I don't believe there is a way of downloading all of the post content one has ever posted. You can do that with PMs but I see no option for posts.

It doesn't but searches only give me 300 posts. You have little control as to when the start from and you can't pick up from what the latest date is.

If you can use a keyword, "Advanced" search gives you a teeney bit of control over dates. E.g., I've got over 12k posts and the search pictured below found a post of mine dating back to 3/07. Note that I asked for the results to be displayed as "posts".

That may work, but would be very time consuming. I've just found out that is isn't porssible to do it and get a chronologial listing from begining to end. :shrug:

Thanks for trying.

Only because I am curious...is it limited to the last 300 posts for every user or can moderators go back further?

Yeah, I just checked mine, and 300 posts for me too. I guess I never tried to see ALL of my posts to find that it was not as easy as I thought.

I kept notes on some useful info and post links, and I lost them. I want to replicate it and maybe update with stuff I missed.

That's all your gettin' :cool:

And as you have requested the thread be closed (via reported post) we'll leave that answer as good enough! :)
