    My thread

    I hope this is the right place to ask this kind of questions.

    How can I check my earlier threads?
    Whenever I try to reach them, I get something like this: "This forum requires that you wait 20 seconds between searches. Please try again in 17 seconds."
    The number of seconds is always 17.

    Re: My thread

    What happens if you click on "Quick Links" on the top toolbar and choose "My Threads" from the dropdown list?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Very strange. I checked that linked just after I posted it; it worked then, but now I get the same message as you.

    The same answer with 17 seconds.
    This is annoying!

    Re: My thread

    Try View forum posts from your profile- I can see pages of your posts there.

    The problem with Piscean's post is that searches are time-limited, so a search today will not be the same as tomorrow. I could post a link to the search from your profile, but it would expire. However, I can see all 83 of your posts.

    Re: My thread

    I can use the link My posts now, but when I tried that yesterday, it didn't work (at least I think so). Since there have been some additional problems, I believe something is wrong with my account.
    Thanks for your help.

    Re: My thread

    That's unlikely as accounts use the same code for things like searches. However, let us know if it keeps happening. It could have been a one time event because the server was particularly busy, for example. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.
