I see the web site shows old posts going back only as far as June or so; how does one go about viewing older discussions?

Unfortunately Mark, posting here have a limited lifespan and it looks like about 4 months.

I don't believe OGR archives old posts beyond that time limit. It's the one downside of an otherwise excellent forum format.

That's a shame.

For a newcomer such as myself,(or anyone for that matter),every post is "new" until you've read it.

Thanks for letting me know what's what.

The posts go back six months. Many other forums also have to cull posts after a certain length of time simply because it's costly to maintain an indefinite archive of material that the vast majority of participants will never again use.
I belong to a Flyer forum where every single post from it's inception many years ago until present are kept. Every now and then I do a search through those archives to retrieve some bit of information. As time passes, it gets more and more difficult to get a meaningful search result without retrieving too many posts on the subject to sift through. I don't blame the creators of this forum for setting it up to be enjoyed in the moment and letting it go at that.

The S Gauge posts on the Yahoo board go way back if that is a help. I hope I
have not committed a faux pas by mentioning a competitor.

Well, it looks like this forum is being short changed as the posts only go back to mid-august.

If I recall correctly, the new format will archive posts for a much longer period.
