General question: anyone know of a way to see the created threads by a forum user?

I'm looking for some old trad. Games I ran and can't find them by search.

That is neat, but unfortunately won't work this time.

I'll probably PM a mod. I was looking for one or two games specifically. I can find some of them through direct links I was lucky enough to have in old emails, but some are just missing.

Thanks for the help though. I didn't realize you could actually view the archived games players were in through VF. Thought it was just current. I've even thumbed around in there for game counts lol

You can also check the wiki in the OP for pre-vote finder games, though you have to search for the mod of the games in that case.

If you remember the thread names you can google in:forums.somethingawful.com "game name" and I think that works

Search is kinda wonky about older threads, but sometimes it works out. I still wanna find some of my own old threads, so I might take another crack at it, see if it's gonna cooperate more.

Same. I could find like 3 games I ran via RFs Google Fu, but I couldn't find everything.

The worst part of it all, is my post history has a lot of my old shameful history, but not my games... sigh.

I ask because I live in SoCal and this is pretty much how retired people are and they are some petty fuckers.

Stories written following the hero's journey read nothing like actual myths or folklore. Also Campbell's work falls flat because he only looks for similarities, not variations, and he ignored Africa and East Asia, and doesn't have room for Heroines.

Guilt is an outmoded concept, the refuge of those who have yet to embrace the fact that their path is the correct one.

a combination of lower weekly audience attendance, big flops by auteurs, and the blockbuster of success of jaws and star wars can be argued to be the death of new hollywood

i know you can make the argument that what you originally said is still applicable but imo your post clearly reads more like you saying i have something against the entire American New Wave. And even then what you said is stupid because 1. the context in which I said the thing about Star Wars was about what movie I wish didn't exist. I named Star Wars because I think the film landscape would be interesting in different ways. and 2. its really stupid to speak of cinema all encompassing when the topic is only Hollywood films.

but yeah go ahead and tell me what i actually believe
