Hi there,
 
This is probably no biggie for anyone much - I'm a once regular listener who rarely gets back here these days. Today, I was searching for something I knew I'd posted to the forums way back. Forum search by post content didn't find it, so I tried the slow thing and searched on myself (narcissistic I know, but should have been an effective way to pull it up. 350 pages of posts (yeah, I used to be in the forums a lot) - but skipping to the oldest entries, I found the header type information (post forum and topic and the date and time of posting) existed, but there was nothing there at all - just a totally blank post. Using the "Let's make music" thread as a test, I found the ghost posts appear to be anything older than about 9am on 23rd July, 2008...

https://legacy.radioparadise.com/#name=Forums&file=search&search_type=user&search_str=dave_porter&total_count=6987&start=3320

The same malaise appears to have afflicted old journal posts, too.
 
 
As I said - it's no biggie, and most likely no current user of the site will really care. But, I figured I'd let you know, in case you weren't aware that some post-munching gremlin appears to have feasted on your older content..
 
Cheers,

i remember you. :wave:  I think the purge was intentional, though I am not entirely sure.. I am pretty sure it is not an accidental bug.

Hi Dave. We're still here. Well, some of us. Anyhow I just wanted to say hi. Jump in if you need too. No need to bite the dust alone when you can chew the fat with some of the old cool fatheads. Wack a mole 24/7. What a world, right? A virtual open mic. :)
