I decided to find my earliest posts, out of curiosity. To my surprise, I found many early posts that were attributed to me, but I never wrote. They were about appliances I've never had, places I've never been etc, etc. Some posts go back to 2004. According to AW, I joined on 9/28/2011. Has anyone else experienced this?

Perhaps someone else was using that handle back then.. can't recollect though.    Can you paste a link to one

I can only guess that there was another 'Ultramatic' back then but who had left the board before you became active - when the 'super serchalator' feature came to be, it probably blended all their posts in with yours.   Databases can be funny, tempermental critters;  had an issue kinda like this with a customer in the food services business back when I used to work.  There had been a partial restore of data for an audit and whoopsie - customer orders from 5 years before were suddenly popping up and printing out!  Full disclosure - I didn't do the restore (but I was part of the crew who got to clean it up...)

It's certainly bizarre. I don't think there was another Ultramatic (I mean honestly; How could there be? cool). No seriously, there was one post that obviously was written by Laundress, but AW attributes it to me.

I just tried that Louie and it worked just fine for me, it only came up with your posts. Not sure how to replicate this as I can't fix it unless I can replicate the error.

Robert, for what it's worth, I got posts from 2004 that weren't Louis' doing the following:

 

- browsing automaticwasher.org with Chrome; go to Super Serchalator; search all available forums (default option), enter 'ultramatic' in the display posts for user field; do not select a specific forum, leave all choices unchecked; enter option for 'display oldest posts first'.    

 

This gave me a result similar to what the 'real' Ultramatic described.

Sounds like a new reality show

First there was 'Real Houswives of [fill in the blank].

 

Now we have 'Real Ultramatic of AW.org'.

Okay I found them, boy you guys must have had to push the "Next 30" button hundreds of times to get all the way back to 2004!

There was a user named "Ultramatic" back then who made about 25 posts in total. I searched and replaced his name to Ultramatic1 so Louie regains the title of Ultramatic as it should be.

Thanks for finding this!

No Robert, if you select "display oldest posts on top" you will see those posts on the first page.

I wonder what ever happened to him, the original Ultramatic I mean.. did he move, did he die, did he win a mega lotto, did he get divorced?  Things we'll never know sadly   cry

I will always be an active member on Automaticwasher.org! I don't ever plan on not being an active member on Automaticwasher.org! This is an awsome website! Hopefully one day I am able to find a Maytag A806 Washer and Maytag DE806 Halo Of Heat Dryer, that is my dream set!
