Recovering Old Posts

I haven't been on DU for over a year due to pressures elsewhere; but now that I've reactivated my account, none of the old posts from way back show up. Does anyone know how I might recover them? I'm using the same account info as before except Skinner was kind enough to send me a new password when the automatic system wouldn't. So only the password changed.

Thanks to anyone who might be able to help.

1. Use one of the search functions...

Plug your username into the Google search bar up top.

Or use the Advanced Search - fill in the form fields to specify yourself as author. You can specify a group or forum, & OPs or replies, too.

2. The 'My Posts' tab only goes back 30 days. All of your posts are still here,

they can be found via searching, they'll be kicked back into your 'My Posts' list if anyone replies to them, and it looks like you've put most if not all of your posts into your Journal:

3. I'd kept the setting to automatically add to journal clicked on so I wouldn't forget.
