    I had cause the other day to refer someone to the ancient thread 'CHORDS OF THE AZTEC', a James McFadyen special, but I couldn't find it - the search facility didn't turn up anything. Have some old threads been deleted with the move to vBulletin, or have they been moved to a separate storage area?

    Thanks.

    Hi Dave - the thread in question was moved to our Mods forum because of it's content and issues we had with some of the posts within it. That is the only way that old threads will not appear on searches - we have no 'archive area' for old threads - so unless there was a contentious issue involved, the threads should show up in searches.

    Ah, yes, I can see how it might have fulfilled those criteria.

    Keep up the good work!

    Nothing important, thanks. It was only wanted for illustrative purposes, and the conversation in question is long gone...

    Good service you get here!

    Life outside Reed Elsevier? An improvement in many ways, John, though I have to say the County Council don't pay as well :). I have more freedom of action, though. Hope all continues well with you.

    To resurrect this question, is there an archive these days? Like Dave I was looking for an old thread, mainly for comedy purposes admittedly, but it's disappeared...

    All threads should still be around Will - unless they've been moved to our Mods forum or our Dustbin for reasons of naughtyness! ;)

    Just out of curiosity Will, in your "options" do you have your thread cut off date set to "all threads"?? What is it you are looking for?

    ***whoosh****

    Never touched the options facility - makes if far too complicated...

    but , yes, it is set to "show all threads".

    Sorry to be raising this again, but my old posts "only" show the most recent 500. (OK, that will be more than enough foir most people..., but) I'd like to review find some of my earliest efforts, albeit for comedy reasons, but am restricted. The answer to the suggestion made by Dinie is once more "yes", and I'm confused!

    Was it a thread started by yourself or by someone else? If someone else, can you remember who?

    What are you looking for in particular? Many hands make light work and all that. ;)

    Well, any of the TMP court, for example....
