    threads from 2015 and older wont show up under my content or posts, but i can find them in the forums. i happened to stumble upon one from 2013 in a sub-forum that doesnt update much, but when i look under my posts on my profile, it only has stuff from this year. is this supposed to be happening? i figured old threads just get deleted after a while but then i found those threads from 2013 so i was confused. thanks in advance!

    When we were hacked a couple of weeks ago it broke the search function completely and when we rebuilt it started logging the posts in the search function from two weeks ago. We have since attempted to repair it, but with the number of posts we have (nearly one and a half million) it taxed the system a little too much so now we think probably about 1/3 of the posts have been rebuilt into the search index but we had to stop the process before it broke the site. Sorry for the inconvenience of having to search through the forums for threads, but this is why the search function and "my content" is acting a bit crazy :)

    Do you think that eventually the other 2/3 of the posts will be available from the profiles again? Either way, great job for the work everyone has put into it!!!

    A lot more of them are already available (if you check your posts now you will see they go back a couple years already). We will however be archiving an as yet undetermined number of older thread sin the near future to improve overall performance. Likely looking at anything older the 5 years or so to be archived.

    okay :) I was just wondering because I joined about six years ago, but none of my threads are showing up still, just some posts.

    Did you find the source of the hack?
