Re: Just curious about posting count

I lost 9,000+ posts with the board upgrade.

It happened to most of us - maybe all of us. And I think it happened after they transitioned to the new forums. I think I had 11,000+ in the first few hours of the new forums and then it went to 4,000+.

I think everyone lost at least half their posts, and also had their registration date changed.

 

I originally had slightly over 1,000 posts since I was an infrequent poster for many years; I now have 518, but had 450+ when they "upgraded" the boards on June 15.

 

My original registration date, which never changed throughout all the previous "upgrades," was 10-26-2004.  My new registration date is 03-10-2010 - 01:35 PM.  I believe the earliest registration date is 03-09-2010, for the posters who have been here the longest.

I was gone for several years and when I returned I had no problems at all posting. However, I lost thousands of posts. Has this happened to anyone else?

 

It doesn't really matter ,I am just curious as to what happened


 

More than half of mine are gone also.  Doesn't matter much I guess since it happened to everyone.  I just wish they had removed from the oldest to newest and not randomly as they did, as many of my newer posts are gone.

Re: Just curious about posting count

I developed a habit of copying and pasting significant posts to Word.  I had to do a lot of reformatting, but it was worth it.  I too lost thousands of posts (more than half), but I feel I still have the ones that, for the most part, were important to me.
