    Where are my PMs?
    I cannot login to the old forum, and I must admit being more than a little disappointed.
    I understand that hackers was a serious problem in the old forum, and that something had to be done,
    but closing it down without any notice was wrong in my opinion.

    Not even I – a forum moderator – was informed until several days later.
    Not a chance to stop or move communications. Is it all lost now?

    I can log in to the archived forums but no pics there, nearly all of my threads are worthless without pics. 2012 we had the same problem but asking Keith he would bring back the pics asking thread for thread, I then had the disaster with Photobucket, I brought back nearly all the pics, just missing a few threads when this happened. When the archived forums came on here I went there with the idea to save all my threads somewhere else, but again no pics. And as Martin I miss my PMs. Disappointed.

    Yes, this is pretty disappointing.
    Is the “Archive Forum 2012-2022” a work in progress or is it done?
    As it is today, the photos that go with the Workbench threads on how restoration/repairs were done are missing.  I had quite a lot of image content on some of those threads and they are necessary to understand what the thread text is talking about.

    I also had a lot of useful information in PMs with other forum members.
    Is that going to eventually be restored or is that gone as well?

    No images are missing from the latest archive forum, but if an image was in a post it is now attached. Just click the attached image to view it as belowexample

    Hi Keith,

    Not all the photos with the Archive Forum are showing as links.  As an example see my post here: https://archivedforum2.beoworld.org/forums/p/189/345429.aspx#345429

    Screenshot (68)

    It should have several photos that I had uploaded to ‘my files’ first – perhaps that’s the problem?

    Same here: most of my old posts and threads have no pictures left.

    I would like to see my old conversations like Martin too. Lots of contacts will be lost unfortunately.
