I can't seem to find a communication section. Is there one? Isn't this an important part of overlanding? I think it would be a good idea to create a section to share our ideas and experience.

There was an entire communications subform here on the previous version of software. @administrator That seems to be another one that got lost in the tradition. Any chance of digging it out of toehold backup?

Thanks for pointing that out, Drift!

No problem. I'm surprised that nobody else has brought it up.

I'll look for the previous thread, and/or create a new one. Good suggestion!

I see his posts in there I think, in the Ham or CB thread.

@administrator I think that's just one of many threads that were in the old Communications forum. Take a look at AA1PR's profile. He had 181 posts on the forum, but since the conversion, most of them are gone. Now it only shows 7 posts from him.

http://www.overlandbound.com/forums/index.php?members/expeditionnorth.51/

For that matter, my profile shows that I've made 306 posts, but only 194 are here on the new forum, and yours shows 913 posts, but only 185 are here on the new forum. I'd imagine that happened with a lot of us on the old software. I think a lot of stuff didn't get converted.

I tried looking at the old forum on The Wayback Machine, but it didn't have a snapshot after sometime in May, and the forum was pretty sparse then.

Probably not much can be done to recover missing stuff, now.

[EDIT] Now I'm not sure about the count at all. I took a look at Jordan's profile to compare, as he wasn't on the old software. All of his 524 posts have been in the last 5 weeks or so, yet showing all of his content lists only 191 posts. Weird...

I'll make a point or looking into this. Maybe posts and threads are different? I'll look into it further.
