Doesn’t work if their account is deactivated as you won’t be able to access their user page.

Well Chris, I remembered the thread Dildo General that Sweatie Killer made. So I searched it.

^Found this

^But on the search results

Not making a big deal, I think it was a cool find though. So all the post are still recorded on the site

I am using Chrome though, it if makes a difference

Oh yeah, I get it.

Sorry, misread your post. Thought you go to their profile, not the forums tab.

Yeah, you can find old posts like that.

Can you do this with all their comments and uploads and whatever as well? It’ll be useful if we could do this before they’re deactivated if they turn out to be undesirables.

Well, that was useless.

But nicely noticed.

I can see ‘em if I go in to edit them with my modly powers, they’re still there, just buried. Buried like pirate treasure.

Yet again you guys ignored me.
I told you guys this multiple times.
I don’t just pull Sweatie Killer quotes out my ass.

I feel like there needs to be a “LIGHT THE JAMES-SIGNAL” button in the site-related forum to summon him to such things. It would be shaped like Nic Cage.

I think I might have detected this by accident ages ago, but never noticed its potential.

I already knew this, so I just chuckled and moved on, but then I remembered something that might be significant: Years ago, on another site’s forums, I noticed a similar phenomenon. The thing that was particularly odd about it was that when you searched for a post, the search function always searched the original post content, not edited posts. I’m not sure if that’s the case here, but I can image that being a problem.

EDIT: Never mind; I just figured out that it doesn’t do that.
