Question Missing older threads in general?


Hello.
I have impression that large portion of old threads in "Non-Nix General" forum has disappeared. If you check "General" right now - latest thread in General has last message date 2009, which is strange, especially taking in account LQ age. I also was unable to find some older threads I was looking for. Am I right and some threads are missing? If so, where are they now? Are they deleted, archived or something else?

When I go to the forum and click "Last" the oldest thread I find is this which is from 2000.

Well, in my browser "general" has three pages, and the last thread is this. And there is no "Last" link. Happens on opera 9.24 and firefox 3.0.6. I'm on winxp right now and won't be able to boot back to linux for a while, but as I remember I had same problem on slackware for some time. Here is a screenshot of "General". And here is a screenshot of last page.

Looking at the bottom of your screenshot,you have limited your threads to the last month. Compare yours with mine:

In case it isn't clear, my threads are showing from the beginning.

Default thread cutoff was set to "forum's default". And I never touched this setting.

Anyway, changing "thread cutoff" to "show all threads" fixed the problem.

Yeah, I think it does default to the lesser setting. I changed mine years ago and didn't think of it until I saw your thread...
