Can I search for something I posted when I can't remember what my nn was at the time?

I'm looking for something I posted years ago regarding teaching times tables. I've been here many years but namechange fairly regularly. Is there something I can type into the 'posted by nickname' bar that would cover all my own nicknames?

Don't think so. You'll just have to search for words you know you used.

Thanks. Trouble is they bring up thousands of threads! grin
MNHQ, if you're reading, such a facility would be useful. Just an option to search 'my' threads. Even old threads of mine with different names are highlighted purple for me so it shouldn't be tricky.

Try clicking on threads I started?

Hi there Bessie. Yes, we see what you mean. We're assuming you didn't start the thread, in which case you might be able to look in 'threads I started' at the top here ^^. Otherwise, if you have any idea when it might have been, report one of your posts here and drop us a line letting us know any detail you remember. We might be able to find it for you when we have a quiet moment. Sorry not to be more help. We will ask around and see if anyone here has any sneaky tips.

Thanks, Iona, no I didn't start the thread. It's ok as I've managed to find it this time.
But it would be a useful tool-though maybe only for posters like me who namechange 2 or 3 times a year.
Thanks anyway!
