Is there a way to see all the old posts since 2000? I would really like to read the old posts so I could learn more and know a little bit more how it works here. You know get the hang of things.
When I go in the archives, there doesn't seem to be every single old post in there. There are sometimes just like two pages (for example in the frequently asked questions). I tought since 2000 there would be far more posts. I don't know if I'm right or not. Did mods deleted some and just let the most important ones. I tought they didn't delete post(except post that didn't accord to guidelines or that was identical) in order to have an user's history or something like that)
The search function will pull up older posts, or you can just go back in each forum and choose the option to view all posts.
But know that our traffic has increased substantially over the years: so, the first couple years of the boards generated far less posts than we see now, and yes, every couple of years, we sometimes go back and remove posts which are redundant, just to save space and help the boards not to get bogged down per page loads.
Also, bear in mind that all the forums we have now (sections of the boards) have not all been here since the start of the boards. So, for instance, Sex Basics has been here since the start, but Ask Scarleteen has not.

Also, you can edit your preferences (under the "my profile" link at the top right) so that each forum shows all topics. That way you'll be able to see every thead that's been made, unless it has been deleted, in that forum since the beginning.
