Default Accessing my first posts here

Is there any way to access my posts dating back to 2004?

When I brought up the "all my posts" it only let me access the last 5000 which only took me back to 2016. I am doing some research & there has been a lot in my past I have been needing to go back into.

For awhile I was able to access them all but now I can't. A lot of what I wrote about what I was going through was only written here

If you go to your profile is there a tab that says Statistics?
Choose the option that says "Find all threads started by"

If you don't see the statistics tab let me know and we will figure out a different solution.

I got that but I have a lot more posts than just in the threads I have started. That kinds limits because I have responded to other posts with information not in threads I have started.

Accessing ALL POSTS we have written only saves the last 5000 to be able to access which for an old timer isn't much

I don't have over 5000 posts so I can't troubleshoot this. Maybe someone who has over 5000 posts will come along.

Sorry I couldn't help

I am sure it has to do with system limitations. Just wondered if there is an archive to be accessed or if this system is only programmed to access all of a person's posts only back 5000. I can access my first thread here in 2004 but no other posts outside my threads can be accessed.

I’ve had some success finding older posts with the date function under “Advanced Search,” but it’s pretty limited.

If you tend to post in multiple forums, you could try searching by forum and username under “Advanced Search.” That should get 5000 posts in a single forum.

If you remember what you posted about you can google it.

site:https://forums.psychcentral.com eskielover
You can put other search terms besides eskielover to narrow it down.
