Cannot find my posts in P&R

Does anyone know why it is that I cannot retrieve any of my old posts in P&R?

Those I've posted in all other sub-forums are there but none from P&R.

I'll kick this topside, but hopefully this will work for you for now- http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php...d=11482799&pp=

Edit: I think I narrowed it down to just P & R with this one- http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=11482805

Thanks but neither of these links seem to work. I get a message saying no search results.

Can you two cut out the frivolity.

This is serious as my P&R posts may be lost for ever. We're talking about real gems here......stuff that deserves to be preserved for posterity.

Please Mods pull the finger out and think of what your Great Grandchildren may be losing.......I'm misting up just thinking about it.

Siu kicked this up to IB and someone looked into it and *should* work now.

1. Go to P & R.
2. Hit the Search Forum link
3. Click the "posts" radio button and then "Advanced Search"
4. New screen pops up, enter your name in the appropriate field
5. Should come up with 20 pages of results (it did for me, but I can see deleted items as well, so your results may differ from mine).

Many thanks, that worked but I seem to have lost all of my 2015 posts apart from one.

Not sure what could be the reason for that but thank you anyway.

Now I'm sure the Mods are well meaning and all but not being regular habituates of P&R I don't think they appreciate the enormity of the loss of my 2015 posts.

I mean this is like flushing away the entire works of Shakespeare and dismissing this as a slight inconvenience............

...OTOH, imagine the joy of some 22nd Century researcher and computer net archaeologist who discovers that trove of erudition, wit, and wisdom lost in some tiny corner of the data cache. This is the sort of discovery that can make a career.
