Retrieving Threads I have 'hidden'?

Having 'hidden' a discussion, is there anyway, please, that I can retrieve this to view once more?
It won't be showing up in the 'Last day', 'Last hour' tabs.
Thank you!

That's a really good question. The search function on site doesn't work, as we know.

I tried hiding a thread, having first memorised a significant phrase in one of the posts, and then googling the phrase, preceded by "Gransnet conversation" which usually works, but came up with nothing.

If you have hidden, say, a games thread, and then look at the games forum, it is hidden there as well. That is, after all, the point of hiding it.

You could try logging out and looking for it. If you are not logged in, there will be no record of your having hidden the discussion. If you wish to contribute, however, I'm not sure if you then can.

If you can't even recall which forum you read the discussion on, there's no hope - surely? - of ever finding it again to 'rejoin'.

If you contributed to the thread it should appear on 'I'm on'
