Why is browsing new posts limited in time period?

It should let you browse past posts infinitely into the past. Or at least one year imo.

Right now as it is, you go back less than 100 posts and you can no longer scroll further into the past.

It used to stop at the bottom of the first page, so that people would have to click on earlier pages.
I suppose the reasoning behind the change was that the scrolling system would be better for most people.
It could have been worse. On some sites, you may scroll down several pages on browsing, click on a item, then return, and find yourself dumped back at the top of the page again.

It's much more than 100 if you are referring to people's profiles.

It used to load automatically for me once I got to the bottom of the page. I'd get the arrow in a circle thingy like it was reloading and then there would be a whole new batch. Now it just stops. I thought it was my tablet. I never use my CPU to get online anymore.

Didn't it used to just load every post you'd ever made?

Pretty sure it cut off around 600 or so.


And yes, I dumpster dive people's posts.

I think we're all confused about which "new posts" the OP means. I responded on the assumption that he was talking about the Recent Posts page. But perhaps I was wrong and he does mean the Profile list of posts.

Well we used to be able to anyway. Six hundred was probably farther back than I'd ever seek.
I don't think I ever looked past a few pages.

From the server here at Langley I can go all the way back.

I even can see your email account.

Oh yeah. I just assumed it was from the profile.
The same function was on the new topics page too ... you're correct.

My email account? You mean private messages?
You can't see those because even mods can't read your private messages.
I don't log on using an email.

Hover at bottom of page rt.side. You can still go back to older-archived new-er posts..Takes a bit of moving arrow around, but will continue going back in posting date order..

Springer explained I believe a few weeks ago... Something like millions in the archives... Can only display so much on a page... But you can keep backing up..

No time limit I've seen...

Mr. Springer? Clarify for us please?
