My profile says I've been here since February 2003... but I've been here way longer - my first post was on August 2002  ::)

I checked the date on the first post I ever made here. First I tried looking for it by displaying all the posts I ever made, and when that timed-out, I tried searching for all my posts that are older than 500 days - and there it was ;D

My first post was a MOE bashing BTW... how predictable  ;P

How do you go about doing that again ??? I seem to hit a snag when I leave the 'Search for'-field empty. :-\

Tried that too. However, whatever number besides '0' I put in the days-field of the "Min Age since last post" section, I get nothing.
There must be something else I'm doing wrong. :-X

You don't have any posts older than 500 days, copycat.  :P  

I believe this is your oldest post.  8)

According to the results I had, I didn't even have a post older than 1 day! :o

Most likely it's not, but it's the oldest one we have in these archives.  :D

In any case, that still doesn't explain how Storm got her 500 days. :-\

This was the criteria I used:

Search for: *, by User: Storm, Search for topics posted in by someone,

Check all, (obviously it would be in the Archive forums, but it organizes that page weird so it's hard to tell which are which)

Min age: 500 days, Max age: 9999 days


12 results found !!!

And yeah I know, it's way easier to do as a query in SQL but oh well.  ::)

Oh crap, Jeysie's right.  It takes * as a literal instead of a wildcard.  :-\

I suggest using a . as the keyword instead.  :)

I've got way more than 12 posts older than 500 days. I've tried using "*", but it's not a wildcard, so I used "e" - as Jeysie mentioned somewhere, almost every post has that letter  ;)

Not very long ago I could still display all my posts... it would take forever but load eventually  :-\

Sure I do, I even got two. 8) Use the same query as you did with Storm, but use my username instead.

Yeah, I just realised after Jeysie mentioned it, that * isn't a wildcard.  You can't even do wildcard searches, though it seems to invisibly tag them onto the beginning and end of the search string.  As I said, I suggest using . as the search term, instead of any letter, but if you've made posts without the use of a period, it won't catch those either.  :-\

So, consider the inabillity to do wildcard searches as a forum bug, that I'll fix at some point in the future.  *goes to report it*  ;P

* copycat wonders if there are posts without the use of a period.
Well, at least I know I don't make posts without the use of a period.

I'm pretty sure I've done some.  I've made posts with just emoticons, and I had made one today with just a comma and exclamation mark as the only punctuation, lol.  ;D

There are lots of posts that don't have dots in them - I don't use a dot when I end a sentence with an emoticon 8)

I think you purposely put a '-' between those sentences to not have a period in that post.
