One for the myLot boffins (experts)

Recently I was away for a week and not able to be on line. I had a few spare moments yesterday and thought I might pick up some of the discussions I missed. But how to do it? So I thought I would ask our resident boffins – is there any way to search for discussions from a certain date? The only thing I could think of was to go through my list of those I follow, click on ‘their discussions’ and see what comes up. Photo is of a pterodactyl flying over the town of Denmark, Western Australia. Actually, that's a lie. It's really a pelican with something in its beak.

I can't think of any way apart from scrolling Judy.

Yep, that's pretty much all you can do. Did you see what JJ showed me?

@rebelann Yes, I was pretty impressed. 10 out of 10 for lateral thinking.

You really had me going for a quick second about the pterodactyl. My brain told me they're extinct. The best way would be the way you're doing it. I don't know of any other way to check older discussions unless you get them in your e-mail, which would be another way to check out older discussions.

Yes, it seems I'll just have to scroll or go to specific myLotter pages.

Mostly I find the 'followers' the best way to find some good posts.

Haha. I didn't like to name anyone but I did think of them when I wrote the post.

Although I have been on here many years, I don't think I am a myLot boffin. I noticed your absence but you are such a prolific poster, I would assume you didn't have time to "catch up". I am often away for days or weeks at a time and just jump back in not worrying too much about what I've missed. Incidentally, what have I missed?

I think that is the best approach if you've been away - just jump back in without worrying too much. And I don't think you've missed anything - except some great posts I've put up! JUST JOKING!!!!

@Orson_Kart Thanks for the kind words.

The only way is to check under "Follow" "Their Discussions" and continue to scroll down. This is the only way I know. You can also go to the profile of those you follow and see their most recent discussions.

Yes, it seems that's what I'll need to do if I want to go back to older posts.

I haven't tried doing that and I think it will not work. You need to search for the title or the tag that goes with it.

I'm looking for posts I haven't read so I don't know the titles. I'll probably just scroll down the recent discussions list.

Yes, thanks. It seems there is no easy way - and I'm a bit keen on 'easy' as in computerising of course.

Nice pic! Nice to know what a "boffin" is too.

I keep getting surprised by who doesn't know what. I would have thought 'boffin' would be well-known in your country but not perhaps in Asian countries or those whose first language isn't English.

You really could have fooled me. It looked like a pterodactyl. Sorry. Can't answer your question. Guess I'm not a "boffin".

Hmm when I miss days I just to go "Follows" then "Their discussions" and scroll on back. If I'm way behind I pick and choose. Sometimes I will go to them bookmark them and then come back to them when I have more time.

I don't have a clue, but others have already given advice. I'd probably just scroll.

If you haven't clarified it I would have guess it's a pterodactyl. Nope I haven't search through that before. Maybe something admin could do, if they want.

It is isn't it? I thought I read somewhere that pelicans are related to pterodactyls but I can't find it now so perhaps I dreamt it. Or maybe all birds stem from it.

That would be pretty amazing if you saw a real one. You need to get a photo of it next time.

No, I don't think it exists. I could always go to some on the sidebars I guess.
