    Why can't I get to my oldest posts?

    I have 245 pages of posts and cant get further than 242.

    I've tried using the >> button, using the pages bar and picking 245, and going to 242, then going page by page.

    That means they no longer exist on the boards due to thread pruning.

    And spam topics you start or reply to, get deleted as well and don't stay in your list of posts.

    Well, do all those topics and posts get pushed back to my last pages?

    I know I posted in legitimate topics with legitimate posts back then.

    Also, do the posts that get deleted still count towards my post count? just curious.

    Posts that get deleted are still part of your post count. I see many noobs fresh out of the water with 20 posts to their name and look in their post history and see nothing. So it stays with you.

    Any post that no longer appears on the boards will not appear on the post history pages. Usually this is because of forum pruning - some forums automatically delete threads after a certain amount of time. Or, for example, the ROTS mods delete all the locked threads at the back of the forums. They still count towards your virtual post count, which is what appears in your profile. That includes every post you've made, whether it is still on the boards or not. Your actual post count is what shows up on people's watched users lists, which is how many posts are still on the boards.

    I'm missing over 23,000 posts. Like was said above, pruning manually or automatically will cause that.
