What Happened to My Old Posts?

BrookBoy | | Sep 4, 2013 11:33 AM

I've been posting on Chowhound since the year 2000, when I registered using my own name, George Lynch. Sometime around 2006 (IIRC) I was forced to re-register because of the significant changes that occurred then with Chowhound. At that time I re-registered using the name Brookboy, not realizing the ramifications until some weeks or months later.

When I sent an inquiry then (in 2007) to see if there were some way I could be known by both names (George Lynch and Brookboy) I was told that no, there wasn't any way at that time, that the only thing I could do would be to re-register again, this time going back to my original name of George Lynch. Of course, by then I had already created a number of posts that I didn't want to lose, so I decided to just continue as Brookboy. One of the main reasons I decided to do that was because if I did a search on George Lynch I would see the hundreds of posts I contributed to using that name.

Now, though, when I search on George Lynch, I only get 19 hits, some of which go all the way back to 2001, most of which don't (obviously).

So my question is, what happened to my old posts under the name George Lynch? Whatever happened must be fairly recent, because the last time I searched when all the posts were there was maybe three months ago.

I'd really like to be able to have access to all those old posts if only for the sake of reminiscing.
