Thanks, I reviewed that thread and the others from past years goals in detail. I also reviewed all briefly reviewed all of my other posts to see if I put it in some other topic but alas I'm not finding my post .

I also read that post and it is not the one that I think I made. Maybe I'm mis-remembering... thanks for all of the help so far folks, I appreciate it!

Have you ever used another account to post from?



Thats Burra, I also went through all of the goals threads and read every post, none of them are mine. I have not used another account to post from.

I've been all through the threads for 2014, 2015 and 2016, and all through your posting history, and can't find anything.  Not sure what else to try.

Have you ever used another account to post from?

Are you certain you posted and didn't just read the thread and think of the goals without actually writing them down?



I'm 99.9% certain that I created a post to a topic that someone else created for "goals for the year/ new year" for either 2015 or 2016. It's a memorable moment for me because my wife and I brainstormed things to do and one of those was install a solar array, which did happen!

I think my posts to certain threads are missing, specifically about goals for the new year... either 2015 or 2016. I did look through my own post history via my public profile view, I didn't find this specific "goals post" that I was looking for. I then used the search feature and searched for posts by me... thinking the search feature might yield different results.

I recall posting to one of the 5 goals for 20xx topics. I believe it was for 2015 or 2016.  I really was hoping to review this post and make a 5 goals for 2017 post based off of what I haven't accomplished.



Thanks
