Thanks for finding this for me IndigoWaves

Cheers and good luck.
Here's the text I had posted in that thread;

3) Type your user name in the "Search by User Name" block and set the option to "Find threads started by user". Or if you feel you may have posted in an existing thread, set it to "Find posts by user".

4) Under "Search Options" set "Find Posts from" to A Year Ago and the next button to "And Older"

5) Also under "Search Options" set "Sort Results by" to "Thread starting date" and "ascending order".

6) Set "Search in forums" to only 1 forum (such as "Talking Tarot").

This all limits the number of posts that are found. You may have to do a few searches to find your very first post, but it should work for you.

Step #5 is critical to finding your first thread. This negates the 1000 return limit, by taking you from the earliest date.

If you wish to find the first thread you participated in; Where you type your name for the search, open the drop-down and set to "Find posts by user".

Changing so I got all my posts led me to a post on 29 August 2002 where I replied on a "Birthday Spread"; http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=6843

I guess that's possible. Spreads wasn't even on my list of forums I might've posted first in though! Thanks!

A real memory trip reading some of those names of others posting.

ETA: I was using Marion as my member name at that time.
Hi Alta!
I'm curious to know if you met anyone x

Well, I'm not surprised that my first post was on the Tarot Trading forum back in May of 2002, since that's where I usually hang out. And I didn't actually post a New Member introduction until Dec 2003! (http://tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=19971). And to reread this post? Wow, how time has passed! My sons were only 5 and 2, and now my oldest is going to college in August! aaaiiigghhh!

I found my first post which was to someone's reading that they thought they were going to jail after pulling the Justice card, I was literally saying you will be okay and that is probably not going to happen

This was my first ever thread I started here. I was so nervous it was wrong or in the wrong place.

That is a lovely story Alta, how you met MeeWah here

My first post was just an introduction. I've told that story so many times... and four years is really not such a long time. I was a lurker for so many years.... how silly was that?

My first post was here, in the New Members area:


I received a very warm welcome from a bunch of nice folks!

P.S. -- Is there a way to search the tarotforum.net archives once we are not logged in?

It's likely this one, from Your Readings:

To find out about health issues, it helps when you assign each card a specific area, e.g. physical health, mental health etc, or a specific organ/organ group, e.g. lungs/respiratory system, heart, stomach etc, whatever division you find relevant or whatever area you are worried about.

As far as 'telling a story', your reading sounds good, though.
Posted the next day after I joined the AT. Makes sense that I'd jump right in.
