I was trying to find a thread I started in one of the forums (well after the new BB was set up) - but I can't seem to find it. I've tried searching using my user name, keywords from the thread, limiting my search to the forum I posted in, etc. - but I can't seem to find it. I can find threads I posted in or started before and after I would have started that thread...

Where could it have gone? It wasn't a controversial thread or anything (so it shouldn't have been locked or deleted for any reason)...just one where I was asking about my new horse and some folks gave me some helpful tips!

Erin regularly goes through the forums and clears out topics that are older and have under a certain amount of replies/activity. It is necessary to keep the database smaller and keep the board running properly.

You can try doing a Google search for your topic... it may be cached on Google's server. Otherwise it's gone forever.
