    Question Private Message Limits and Recoverability

    The new PM limit is 25 messages, but I have 34. Is there a way to view the messages in our old PM boxes?

    I was all ready to delete all my messages, but realized I had some info on there I'd like to recover, if possible. If not, I totally understand, and I'll start fresh.

    snowbear, try logging in over at http://archive.longhaircommunity.com and see if you can read them from there. Also, your pm count should be higher. Let me check it out...

    I can't read them, since the site notice is still up. I can log in, though.

    I had 47 messages in my old PM box, but I cannot see any of them, and there were a few that I was hoping to save. Perhaps I can try the archive feature.

    I tried it, and it didn't work for me. The site notice is still up, which prevents me from accessing anything but the site notice. Did it work for you?

    I am also unable to access any of my PMs. There is nothing in there I really wanted to save and I was planning to just delete them.

    I'm having the same situation. I go to the archives and sign in, but when I click on my PMs I get the site notice.

    Like David, I was hoping to save a few PMs, so I'm hesitant to clear out my box.

    Well, there aren't any messages imported over here, so it's safe to empty your inbox.

    I've unlocked the archive, but will be locking it again later tonight as I don't want people using that system instead of this one.

    Steph, you're totally awesome. I'm downloading all my messages and my journal right now.
    Hey, is there a lock-all function, so if you kept the archives open, no one could add anything new?

    Okay, so I got all the messages I needed, and then deleted everything. However, here (not the archive) it says I have 34 messages, even though there's nothing in my inbox or outbox. If I click "empty", it still says I have 34 messages, and am 100% full.

    I tried to be nice to this new version of the board, but it hates me!
    Is this just a bug?
