    Default pm question

    When I click on 'private messages.' It says
    Inbox contains 0 messages
    You have X messages stored, of a total of 100 allowed (empty folder.)

    (Where X is a number)

    Unfortunately I don't know how to access or indeed delete X. Clicking on the empty folder button does nothing. This is because the X arrises from the old site not this one.

    So how do I access/delete those old messages?

    Many thanks

    ETA: And how do I alter the text that I put in that goes between my name and avatar? (In my case Raven haired)

    Hi Tai Shan Fan, I had exactly the same thing happen when I first looged into the "new" LHC, and I had over 40 messages, that weren't really there, and I could not delete them in the conventional way. All you need to do is send a PM (to anyone), and these older messages, which aren't really in your inbox, should disappear automatically, and your "PM count" should go to what it should be.

    Your old PM's will be in the archives, which requires a separate login to access, and you can delete them there. To access the archives, you will have to log out of the "new" LHC first, however.

    Thank you for your help, David

    I logged out and then logged back in again into the old site. It gave me the welcome back Tai Shan Fan message, but when I tried to get into my pm folder I got an access denied message.

    So unfortunately those messages are still out of my reach.

    Try sending a pm to yourself (eta: I'm not sure it will help for the problem you are having, but it helped for me when I kept getting the "new private message" notice at the top right of the page (under your name) so it's worth giving it a try! )

    Thank you, Leisha for your reply

    I tried doing what you said and I got my message and could delete is as well without any problems, but doing that didn't get me into the messages from the old site unfortunately. I still can't get into those.


    Any other ideas, anyone, mods, admins...

    Tai Shan Fan, sending a PM to yourself should have solved the problem. However, you can try to go over to the old site and see if you can retrieve them there. But I think that isn't possible any longer.

    I will send you one and let's see if that helps.
