    To keep the previous posts

    I wonder how long the forum would keep its member's previous posts ? Or to be specifics, when the old posts will be deleted from the " My posts " listings ?

    Because I always check " My posts " to review the questions. I don't want to lose the valuable resources :)

    I believe they do eventually get deleted, but am not sure what the lifespan is. Red will know.

    I thought they lasted forever. :D

    This forum has been up for less than a year (altho we're getting there). Do you think that all the posts that have been posted so far are still accessible?

    whl626, did you know that you can always use the Search function to find out if your question has been answered yet? (It can be a little tricky. Red can help you with any details.)

    Cordially,

    I use the email notification function the first time I registered with this forum. I get notified when an answer is posted and to instantly pay attention to it is my routine :)

    I should have phrased that differently. I meant that before you ask a question you can use the "Search" function to see if it has already been answered.

    Do you make use of the "Ask a Teacher" archive?

    (Sorry for being so nosy.)

    :)
