Current Behavior

When a users post falls off the active cache, they vanish from threads.

Example: I no longer see @prologic posts on this thread

@prologic has explained in detail why this is by design.

Possible Solution

For the user experience, I think there could be a warning at the top of the page if there are posts that have expired from cache. This could prevent reading posts out of context / solved threads appearing unsolved.

Something like: "⚠️ some posts in this thread may have expired, click to view the archived thread" which could link to a yarn search that pulls in all the original posts.

Bonus if the system knows exactly how many posts are not displayed and can add that count to the warning.

Open to idea's for a better solution.

This is also related to this Yarn and is something we hope to solve with "Search Archive" or "Show older replies..."
