View Full Version : Why can't I search a member's years old posts?

06-15-2014, 12:17 PM
I haven't been to this website in years and neither has my friend. But I see my friend, cloaked, was active here in November 2011. But when I click 'search posts by cloak' it says no results. Where did the posts go? Is 2.5 years too long ago to search?

And also I can't access unread private messages. It says I have 20 unread messages. I can't access either the unread or the read messages.
Inbox contains 0 messages. You have 42 messages stored, of a total 10,000 allowed. (Empty Folder (http://www.investorsiraq.com/forums/private.php?do=emptyfolder&folderid=0))

When the RV occurred in 2012 a lot of members cashed out, deleted their previous posts so they couldn't be found and moved to some remote island. Or the site was upgraded and most or all of the archived info was not transferred to this new platform. Hence no results on the searches for posts made earlier than a year or so back.

Don't know if it will help but at the bottom of the page is an "Archive"
