On occasion I've regretted not tracing a couple of old posts that I had difficulty finding again. With our new DSL connection it now seemed possible, and in fact fairly reasonable, just to archive all the threads to which I've posted, so that I could have them all in one folder for quickly searching out my gems of wisdom when needed.

As I'm a relative newcomer, with the first post using my current identity on 15-Jul-01 - 09:25 PM, what seemed reasonable for me would, obviously, be rather a massive task for a few of our olden-timers.

My current tally, according to the search, is a paltry 7,962 posts in roughly 6 years. Having completed my archive, I find that I've posted to a mere 3,280 threads that, as .mht "web archive" files comprise about 513 MB.

Some, like Amos who has 39,157 posts, would find it a much more difficult thing to accomplish. Of course, if we had a "nonsense filter" he could apply that and only need to archive about 37 threads; but that probably requires an additional development of mudcat capabilities. By the time that gets done he might be up to a less manageable 40 or 50 threads after filtering. (He's been here a lot longer than I have.)

Posts for catspaw39 are at a relatively modest 23,147, but I seem to recall that there may have been a change of moniker some while back, so his actual personal total may be significantly more than that. It's fairly obvious that the nonsense filter would do little to reduce his archiving task, as there is very rarely anything but polite, concise, and erudite content in anything he posts.

Joe Offer shows a paltry 19,696 posts, but as his contain no (non)sense at all the filter wouldn't be much help. There's also the question of whether "edit posts" are included in the search, so his actual busyness on the site may be much more than indicated.

Recognizing that running quickly through opening a whole archive (opening lots of threads in quick succession) would perhaps burden mudcat's bandwidth, I did my best to do the archiving only when traffic seemed at a low ebb, and generally worked through about a "page" or two of the search results at any one session. As a result of this, it did take a few weeks to work through all threads to which I've posted.

Once the basic archiving was done, when I open a thread after posting to verify that all went well, (something that of course everyone does) it's fairly quick to archive that thread, or "thread segment," to keep the record current. (If opening a 50-post part of a thread it is necessary to add a "page number" to the save title, since otherwise the last page will overwrite previous ones.)

Reviewing my results, I do find perhaps a dozen or so of my own posts worth saving; but I was having trouble finding a couple of them since I couldn't recall the thread names correctly. I've also found that a few that I remembered as being "very good" actually weren't all that great. But nostalgia has a certain appeal.

As it's been a couple of years since this thread dropped out of sight, perhaps – in the absence of much intelligent discourse recently – a fresh round of comparing notes and a bit of new bragging is in order.

Maybe there's a new weiner.

John

Good point. What we really need is a software routine that records the total number of words that each poster has posted! Or even the total number of letters IN the words! That way people like Amos and myself who use a lot of great big fancy words like "sesquipedalian" and "exegisis" would get the credit we truly deserve.

The late great Sh*mbles, now departed from this forum, would score very high on such a system.

Note to JohnInKansas:

When a member changes his/her Mudcat name, that name-change exetnds to all archived posts, which are re-labeled with the new name. So, a name change would not result in a reduction of the number of posts in history ~ only in the reattributino of that entire history to the newly changed name.

I learned this accidentally, reading a resurrected thread in which various participants voiced complaints about Martin Gibson's interjections. I didn't see a single post labeled "Martin Gibson" in the whole thread, but when I read a little closer, it was obvious that many posts characteristic of our old friend MG were in there, but all of them posted under the name "Once Famous." I then saw that Once Famous had a long history af many posts. Most of them, one assumes, orignally appeared under that earlier infamous name, but all had been reassigned to the new name.

That brings up a new, related question: who has had the most posts deleted? MG/OF is an obvious candidate, but not the only one

PoppaGator -

When a member changes his/her Mudcat name, that name-change exetnds to all archived posts, which are re-labeled with the new name

That's the preferred method. Actually, you - the member - are just a number. If you request that the name displayed be changed, using the same member number, then all the posts will show as if made under the new name, since it's the member number that's the "key" looked up to find what name to use. (At least it looks that way in the page code.)

You could, however, create an entirely new member identity that would have a new member number and associated new name, if you use a new email address and "fake the details" for other things asked. This is a practice generally frowned upon by the management, but could be done accidentally or deliberately.

In the past, the login page (Sign In) also had a button to "Sign Up" and a few people hit the wrong button when they tried to log in after a cookie crumbled, causing all sorts of confusion. I believe the "New Member" button has been moved elsewhere to avoid "inadvertent multiple personality syndrome" when people just wanted a new cookie but got confused. Most "inadvertent new identities" have been "fixed" by mudelves, but the incantations and potions required to do that are unknown on the real earth (by we "real human beans").

It might be considered necessary to have an entirely new identity (a new member number and new name), for example in a "stalking" case. In this case, posts under the old name would remain, and only new posts would be under the new name and new identity number.

The latter case is a bit like the government's "witness protection" setup(?). It provides little protection to change the name unless you change the entire "identity," if the purpose is avoiding someone/something threatening/stalking you.

After sufficient time, when a threat appears diminished, mudelves could - I assume - use their same magic to reconnect a new identity to old posts under a prior ident so that they all reappear under the current name; but I don't know if this is a preferred practice.

Accidentally, or intentionally, there have been a few cases of "new identities" that are a bit different than a simple "new name" for an existing identity, hence the "ambiguous tweak" about a name change.

Thanks, John. Makes sense, and I'd like to think I would have figured most of that out for myself if I needed to.

What I had been talking about was a simple change-of-name associated with an ongong account, and it should be fairly obvious that anyone so inclinded could re-register under a brand new identity, with an entirely different result.

I was not fully conscious of the critical fact that a new and different email address would be the key to acceptance as a new member, but that makes perect sense and is obvious in hindsight. What may be less obvious is the need to "fake the details" for other things asked. This implies that the mudelves/joeclones would be keeping a lookout for currently-enrolled individuals who might be trying to create new accounts as "new and different" members.
