    I didn't see any announcement or warning, but it seems like the forum site has been upgraded/changed? My avatar is gone, all my message history is gone. What gives? Thanks.

    It seems that something has gone bad with the forum. Pics don’t come up in the thread. I can’t reply to threads. Etc.

    @lanceav8r the other thread will get my attention better. Can you please be specific as to where you cannot reply and where pics don't come up, Give a thread link so I can see what is going on.

    Thank you for providing a link to the brief thread discussing that there would be new forum software. I'm sure there were compelling reasons to make that change. However, I did not see anything in that thread warning that one's avatar, or one's message history would disappear. Not sure what else is missing.

    DennisV, How are you coming to the forum? Tapatalk? Branded App? or a computer with Window #?/ What browser. Others do have their history and avatar, so I need to understand your conditions so I can check it.

    Can you clarify the issue with posts not appearing. I can see all your old content. I'm really unsure on avatar as I know lots of others avatars imported.

    Perhaps I used incorrect terminology. Indeed my "posts" are all still there. When I went to my "messages" (that is, PMs, private messages, messages between two forum members --- not posts on the forums), it showed zero. I could not find them. I clicked the little "envelope" icon, which I'm just assuming would be how you access your messages.

    PM's are now called 'Conversations'. Messages have been ported over, but they might not be in whatever folders the user had created,.

    I did not set up any "folders" for my PMs. I had an inbox, and sent messages, and that's about it. Where would those have gone and how do I find them?

    OK, when I first tried that "envelope" icon, it said I had no recent conversations. However, I poked around a bit more, and when I asked it to show all, they came up. Guess that mystery is sort of solved. Thx.

    If you can read that thread, I think I covered that on the first page of posts. There are other tips in that thread that can make this change less challenging for you. And if you post there, I'll sure try to help you out should something else come up.
