Looking back at your own posts

Today, I was (still am by the way, 4 hours left) making a back-up of my laptop (which is a good habit) and it is taking quite some time. So I decided to take a look around on wiihacks, because I still needed to download some things that I need to softmod the wii of a family member of mine. Suddenly, I started wondering what had happened to the threads I had reacted to. Had the problem been solved? Did things go wrong? Was my advice of any help, and if not, whose was and what could I learn from it?
So, I decided to use the search engine to find all the threads I reacted on and the results were quite interesting. I discovered for example, I had given bad advice more often than I had thought I would have (off course, everyone believes their advice is correct). For example, in one post, I had overlooked the system menu in a sys check and had redirected the poster to the "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" guide, while the poster was on system menu 4.2 ( whoops ). In another, I recommended cIOSX rev19 to fix things, whilst cIOS249 rev17 would have been a safer choice.
So why did I make a blog post about all this? Well, because I believe everyone should once in a while take a look at his or her own posts. Nobody is perfect and everyone can make a mistake. So if your have some free time on your hands and don't know what to do, why not take a look at your own posts?
Small side note: I don't know for certain whether this post belongs here, but I believe it does. Furthermore, I believe this could result in better advice being given of wiihacks, to the benefit of the whole wiihacks community. If it does not belong here, please accept my apologies.
