Are our older posts available somewhere?

I'd like to get the text from a post that I wrote and send it on to someone, but It's nearly a year old. Is it completely gone?

Thanks

1. Not gone (unless explicitly deleted).

You can use google.com search adding: site:democraticunderground.com

2. I tried that, but couldn't find it.

Do you need to put the forum name in quotes, or your DU handle, or ???

I picked out some key words that seemed pretty specific to that post, but no luck.

Thanks for the reply.

3. Try putting your username and not much else

So democraticunderground freelancer and just one or two other words.

4. We used to have archives all the way back to DU 1.0.

5. Advance search - top right corner below the Search button

is the best but I think that you need a star to be able to use it.

If you have a general idea of when you posted it, this search allows you to put your name as the poster, the forum or group if you now it, and a range of dates.

Or you don’t have to specify forum, the default is “main” - the biggies.
