Default Old Posts
Is there a way to search farther back for my old posts than the 20 pages I can find on my profile page?
I am trying to find a specific ask I made in late 2016 to early 2017 and those posts don't show up for me anymore.
I have used the search this forum for my username, but it just comes up with times people quote me or @me.
The post was kind of generic about a sims hair so text searches aren't helping either.
I have tried just searching every thread I know I have frequented over the years, but am coming up empty.
Just trying to find an old elusive cc website that I have lost the bookmark to.

Was it a thread you started? Because I can see those back to 2010.

No unfortunately not.
I honestly cant remember which thread it was.
Somebody, cant even remember who, posted a picture of an obscure hair and I asked where they got it.
Their answer had a link to the blog, which if i remember correctly was japanese and hard to find.

I don't think it is based on how old the thread is, but how many. I can be wrong but I think anything beyond 20 pgs are not kept on the server. I noticed the same thing when I was trying to find my old threads.

It is based on how many and not how old. I just happen to hit 20 pages in May of 2017 and I need a post from as far back as Sept 2016, I know it can't be any farther than that because of when my file from that site is dated.
I would have thought they were gone for good too, except when you delete posts older ones show back up.
I don't want to just keep deleting all my posts, because many of them are wcif answers and keeping them around might be useful in a future search.
I'm probably not going to find it, but my ocd brain says I need to.

that's good to know. if you know more what you're looking for, such as keywords, you can use google to search with strings like:

site:modthesims.info MurderPrincessK hair japanese
