I’m totally stupid… I should have thought that messages would have been lost but it NEVER OCCURRED TO ME.

I wish I had backed up those messages, or at least the NAMES of people.  AUGH. 

I had a couple very important messages saved with some agreements with people and now cannot access them.

Is there any way to get them?

I mean, I know its probably not possible…but worth asking.

Can’t believe I never thought of it…..oh man. :(

This is not an official answer, but I would imagine that there is no way that PMs can be retrieved now, because the beauty of a PM system is that the messges are indeed Private, no one can access them.

THere was a thread discussing this issue in the old forum, and it was strongly reccomended that any PMs that you need should be backed up.

Don’t feel so bad.

I made the same mistake. I got so fixated on downloading many of my files before they all became zips, I forgot completely about my PMs.

I also missed the information that we would lose our PMs.  Probably got lost in the controversy over the changes to the Platinum Club ...

Rather frustrating as I was waiting for information on how to claim the prizes from a recent contest. 


Considering I’ve been involved in forum system changes before, you’d think I would have realized PMs would be lost.  But nooo ...

Of course, even if we’d been assured that out PMs would have been retained ... they would have been lost in this rollout.

The only things I suppose I regret not saving now that I think about it are maybe the very few, very brief, but yet very informative conversations I had with MallenLane when he eventually discovered my questions to him about certain topics.

Some of the PM’s I had was granting the right for a PA to use pictures I took with my digital camera. <*sigh*> Well, I guess it isn’t possible to get those back, but nevermind. Anyway, I’ll send an email to the PA and grant the rights so there’s no legal question of who’s what or whatnot.

How do we access the new message system to check on a message recently sent?  I’ve not found it yet.

Look at the dark grey bar where it says how many times you’ve posted and your last visit. There’s an icon with a PM in it, and beside that icon is the link to your PM-box.

Hi Sea, good to see you.

 

Be aware that at the moment the sent box in the PM system is not working, so you can see messages sent to you, but have no way of checking if any you sent went through.

I so totally did not see the dark blue “Private Message” on the so dark grey it’s black bar.

But then ... I never did think that so dark grey it’s black bar was a good color choice.  Far better for it to be nearer the grey of the rest of the bars.

Yeah I lost a lot of important stuff…info for a commission, a picture I was making for someone…. details from someone else on how to achieve the perfect water settings in DS… a tutorial from someone else on converting clothing to genesis, and a lot more.  I can’t remember their names either!!!  Arg.  I have no way to contact them and its driving me up the wall!!!!

Also, do not like how daz PM notification emails now list the entire message in the email. :(

It’s easy to skip and miss it.

But I’d like to add that chohole had a better answer, as I browsed through the post and only read the few first words before I hit FAST REPLY and started typing….. red face

There should be emails that come with each pm, but not everyone is getting emails I think.

Hi Sea, long time no see…

Like others I forgot to back up pm’s and had permissions from a couple of people to write recipes for some shader networks. Guess I’ll just have to contact the again.
