Is there a way of searching for all of my old posts? The forum search button only offers up a few posts.

Occasionally i come across old posts that i cannot remember writing at all. So i would like to be able to download all my old stuff to sort through.

I can go through threads such as 'make an un-founded claim about the poster above you' and copy any posts i wish to keep, but the problem for any other posts is not knowing what to search for?

I hope this makes sense.

It's not something we offer at present, no, but we can certainly consider and investigate it.

You mention a couple of different methods of interaction though: would you be looking to search (but only in your own posts), see them as a list on a page, or download them in some format?

Thanks for replying Aaron,
I am only interested in my posts - with a view to downloading them (copying, not removing them).
With 1700+ posts i am not sure which would make more sense. Downloading all 1700 or editing a list on site then downloading just the ones i am interested in. Whatever works best for you i suppose.

You have obviously not read any of my posts. My hits would make a smaller volume than 'Trumps book of truths.'

You could painstakingly copy and paste them. Just put the following search into Google: "https://www.comedy.co.uk/forums: playfull"

You can add years and keywords to rediscover forgotten gems: https://www.comedy.co.uk/forums/thread/29254/3/

Kenneth, i don't know if you had a lucky hit or if you have an encyclopedic knowledge of were any posts are located, but you have made my point. I forgot i had posted that and i had also forgotten how chuffed i was to get a BooYah! from Sooty!
