Is there a particular search or setting?

If I look at my posts or find other posts option, it stops with 1,001 entries and hence sometime during 2020

Advanced search, by user name, change "and newer" to "and older" and change "in descending order" to "in ascending order"

It does indeed restrict you to 1001, like Arabian Nights. You could try searching for your name in "Member Introductions", if you did introduce yourself. I assumed my first post would be a question and "My Threads" showed one 5 months after joining in 2006: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...orrect-499777/ Unsolved, like so many

I'm quite recent to the forums, but have been using Linux as my main system since 1999.
