Default Embarrassed to ask but I have been searching for hours how to find my old threads

I have tried a few times and it's added up to at least what seems to be a few hours and I don't know how to find my own past threads... I hope that I'm not the only person to ask this question... I tried key words, etc. and no luck what-so-ever.

Well, first of all, we have a horribly underused subforum named "Suggestions & Technical Support"


To find your threads:

1) Click on "Search"
2) Click on "Advanced Search"
3) On the right side, you'll see "Search by user name" ( this is where you type your username )
3A) Underneath where you typed your username, you get to decide if you want to see all the posts you've made, or just the threads you've started.
4) Click the "Search Now" button at the bottom of the page
5) Profit

Nalioth and Bigrog210 Thank You Thank You !! I took pictures of the directions you gave me, Now I can go to sleep and get up in the morning and start looking back and thanking anyone who had responded to my threads.

Much Appreciated Guys I'm going to hit the hay, it's pretty bad when you can't find your own threads But I did find just about every single thing else !

It's been a while since I've looked but I think this method only takes you back only so far

The search function is limited to only returning 10 pages.

If you want to go past 10 pages you have to use the 'archive' tab at the lower right of the home page. No auto-search function though, just manual searching. For some members here 10 pages only goes back to last Tuesday.

The OP's after his own threads - not all of his posts.

I don't think any of us start 250 threads in 24 hours.

Dont sell Allengen(whatever) short.....if there was some outbreak of toilet failures, or installations in India....we would have 500 threads in 24 hours.

Thank You Everyone, I appreciate your all's help very much..
I obviously found my way back, I used the way Nalioth instructed and now I can do my follow up instead of asking a question looking like an asshole for not acknowledging those that were nice enough to help out.
