Do threads sometimes just 'disappear'? Or am I really rubbish at searching??

Trying to find a thread I started a couple of weeks ago but can't find it anywhere at all!!!!

what was it on?

have you clicked your 'threads I started' button

Some do disappear but generally not that quickly.

Which thread was it?

It was called something like Swiper's mouse house update..... not exact but along those lines - have tried searching swiper, mouse house, mouse, house..... cant find it anywhere!!

Maybe I dreamt it

archives? although its a bit early

ahh yes, i have found that you have to have the EXACT words for a search.

if a thread was called for example: my big boobies

and you searched "my boobies" it wouldn't find it.
very annoying

It's archived because it was in Chat and they get archived quicker.

<<SD does her "I'm a goddess" dance>>

I searched archived messages for house posted by swiperfox.

The MN search facility is, it has to be said, "less than perfect"

So it's not only easier to search archived messages (no need to mess around with Topics), it's more reliable!

I shall never look anywhere else in future.
