I was trying to find a post I submitted a year ago. But when I search on "Rich54" the search results stop after 10 pages. In my case, 10 pages does not take me far enough back to Nov 2020. Is the limit of 10 pages a new thing? I seem to recall that I used to be able to search many years in the past.

I bet @IamSam will come back with an answer yet it does appear that there is a 10 page limit. So you may need to limit the search with a keyword in the text or jut for the titles.
When I did that on your posts with a simple keyword, I got 8 pages all the way back to 2014
FYI

Yes, for the item I was looking for, I took a guess at a keyword and was able to find it. But that was just dumb luck.
It seems to me that if the old posts are being stored and are accessible, then there is no apparent reason for a 10-page limit on searches.

I agree. Would be nice not to have that limit
