Archives.....available?

Is there ANY way to view older postings?
Such as those from the early days of this forum? 2000-2003
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

I've tried that link before, but the very old stuff doesn't seem to want to come up. I've always been morbidly curious what I said in my first posts here. However I can remember a few times when the web server crashed and Jason nearly lost everything. It's possible that some of that old content is gone for good.

Some is there, others say server is overloaded. You have to try each one.

Try going to your User CP to "Subscribed Threads" and click on last . I just brought up my first post from back in 2002 .

Just saw this thread. It seems to be a very simple matter of settings; log man log man had experienced some trouble seeing the very old threads, and when he tried this it worked for him too.

1. Click on "User Control Panel".
2. When that page loads, click on "Edit Options" under "Setting and Options," the third category in the left-margin menu.
4. When that page loads, scroll down to "Thread Display Options", which is the third big central block from the top.
5. Under "Thread Display Options", look at "Default Thread Age Cutoff", which is the fourth item down. If you can't see very old threads, it's likely that is set to ""Use Forum Default". Change that to "Show All Threads".
6. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click "Save Changes".

Don't accidentally skip step 6, or it won't take.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Jon

Thanks, I just tried that but it still didn't allow me to go very far back. I guess with 25K+ posts I kinda overloaded the system.
