Yet another test


Recommended Posts

Hi @ORV

 

Posted as a test as its nothing to do with the original thread. 

 

OK  well I had bits of info from the start  it was a post of
yours  probably from 2015.   It was about Oceania. 
& probably about Riviera regarding doorways.

I first looked in the "help" section and there were a couple 
of posts by CC manager which suggested they would be
keeping posts for 12 years.   That didnt help find them but
suggested they would be somewhere ,so not a "dead horse"

 

I tried again the steps I posted earlier searched with dates
spanning 2014 -2016 for words like doors entrances maybe
even decks and so on. I thought I would be inundated with
responses but "not found" seemed to feature a lot.

 

Dont really know why but I noticed at some point that
the Oceania forum had over 700 pages.  I was on a roll
after that  picked page 700 and that came up with  year 2004
threads, page back and dove? in at a few points until
2015.    It was then a bit more laborious as I had no
idea when - maybe there was a search parameter to
speed things up but I just started Dec 15 and worked back.
There was no hurry and I have time to do these daft things!
 I skimmed the titles looking for something relevant but
as said ended up reading many of the threads. We went
on the Marina from Chile to Papeete and actually managed
 to get ashore 2 days on Easter Island.  It was a great cruise
marred ony by the exit from Papeete.  I couldnt believe that
the problem has gone pretty much un resolved.  O simply
wouldnt tell us what we would get on the last day for
IIRC 95USD pp  Ended up booking a night at the airport
motel or some such place not that we stayed. for the night

Had a tour around the Island an went to the hotel for a shower and 
rest, then left at maybe 10pm for the airport. I think the
tour and the hotel cost around USD100. Shower was a
waste of time - needed another one after we had been at the 
airport for  30 minutes.LOL

 

So short version ( Relatively)
Go to Boards   pick one   "Holland America"
Under "start new topic"   

1 2 3 4 5 6 NEXT Page 1 of 4611  

Click on "1 of 4611"
Enter 4611
Comes up with threads from 2004
If it is one of your threads you will be able to guess the year
so  the number entered where I entered 4611 is lower
as you get to todays date  so year 2012  is halfway between

2004  & 2020   so enter (By sheer coincidence) 2012 for the
page number - Brings up threads for 2011 so getting close.
Year 2012 is actually on page 1957.

 

 Still a little hit & miss
as there is an overlap of thread start date and last post?

Perhaps you can try a search - its easier to do than write how to do it!

 

Maybe as an experiment you could go to your Rambling
thread and try to post something in it then see if it shows
in your "activity" searches

Dont think it pulls out Roll Calls  and same facility is not
available for Roll Calls - have not worked out how to find a roll call for
say 2005

I have sent a "Feedback how can we improve this page"
on the search page and maybe after new year I will follow
it up.  Will let you know if I come up with anything better.

Thanks for the explanation, I appreciate you locating the old post. I'll save the information in case this comes up again.

And now for something completely different

 


Good  Afternoon   @wowzz   got a bit further with the spreadsheet  and thought I would show it to you first.
Maybe as we  may not get to go you might put the link on the roll call when I add a bit more.
This link is read only but I will give you another one that can be edited by all.
I will do the monitoring and will add things for those who think they cant do it themselves.:)
if they ask in the roll call.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13PA4pC6g346Y3xQ4oChxc2H8Y4C9LhXz92XoG1bUOD0/edit?usp=sharing

Its almost finished just need to look up av temps etc  then I can post back here with the proper link

Thanks - most impressive. I think I might wait until you have finished everything before posting it on the roll call. Is that ok with you?

Good  Evening @wowzz


Ok looks ok enough to roll out now.  I can add more stuff if required
US  seem to like  a slotpull   cabin crawl    and so on.   Tho they may not be allowed.

 
I will pick up from posts or anyone can add their own details.
What details are added is up to them.  I dont usually have the option of adding email addresses
but again that can be an option.
It is accessible on PC  Laptop Phones tablets but not sure what it might look like on Ipads or Mac 
Apple & Google dont always get on:) 
Maybe ask them to just add at the bottom of the list it will be sorted in  alphabetically later.

Dont worry about getting it wrong or a total mess up - it can be fixed, but perhaps post advising.

I  havent heard but would guess  a normal M&G will not be allowed  but the page can be used
for an informal meeting if that is allowed. Will just have to see what happens but best to
prepare.     Min number for an M&G is 25  so may not even get that.   I will not have anything to
do with the arrangements, if one is allowed. ( even if we get to go)

Thank you

What you have done is fantastic, but slightly above my pay grade! Is there any reason why you cannot put your link directly into the roll call - I'm just not sure what my role is in this?
