My inbox has 354 messages in it, but they are all messages I have sent. None of the messages in my inbox prior to the move are there.

Sorry guys it is clear the PM import did not go as well as I thought. No easy fix at this point and it seems the old software had a major gap if you had 350 msgs as it was supposed to limit it to 50.

Ya and I need to crash... I worked until 3am last night to get ready for all of this and have been running in circles helping people with old emails and etc... So far some minor bumps but I think its running well for the most part.

More good things to come.

I came on the new site this morning with 637 PMs - and it was as for Josh - they were all of the PMs I have sent since 2006 or so.

I had a notice that I received a PM while my inbox was full - but that message never made it to my inbox after I got the number less than 50.

One thing that I have noticed already though, is that there are 50 PMs permitted - but that is total PMs including inbox, sent box, and saved. Before it was 50 in each box.

The difference in memeber statis is the number of posts I believe. At least that is what it has been in other vbulletin fourms i've been on. I am not the expert though so I will let Kyle tell us what it really is.

Ok first let me apologize for the PM confusion. While the import completed the old system seemed to have a rather large flaw allowing people to store way more PMs than allowed by creating sub folders and etc. It was limited to 50 and the new site is limited to 100.

Basically it put all of your outgoing and sent msgs into the inbox and you will need to clean them up to allow new ones to come in.

Can you allow for more messages... 500 would be a good number These are just text so no great storage problem.

Why is the space limit on PMs so small? It's not like they take up a ton of storage space.

Edit: I didn't see Marty's post. Sorry for the double post.

Also while you're poking around the ACP, please run the query to subscribe all the users for "instant email notification". By default no one gets notified of replies to their threads. I had to do it manually in the user control panel. You can do this globaly Maintenance->Execute SQL Quary ->select "instant email notification"
also good idea to run the notifications for PM

also, please enable 'quick reply' so the reply box is ready for replying without having the extra click on the icon. Vbulletin Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Yes, Click Not Required

IMO this switch was long overdue... looks like you're enjoying the switch over It will take a bit before you'll work out the bugs and fix the missing icons...it's all fun though

Would it be possible to give us access to the old site, so we can retrieve the information from all our lost pm's, unless you're still working on having them imported?

Got the URL fix meant to do that one last night.

Im sticking with the click to quick reply for now. We'll see how it goes.

The post icons are strange since they work for me in firefox but not IE and the settings are correct on the icons themselves.

I'm curious about this too. Are we going to be able to retrieve our old PMs, or should we just expect to move on?

Thanks,

I'm still curious as well. I can understand if this is something you are still working on (if so I apologize for interrupting), but if the messages are lost and you are not working on it any longer, I would like to know so I can start working on tracking down all the information and research I lost.

Most of the PMs should be there. What it did was mix your inbox, sent, and additional folders together so its a bit of a mess. From what i can tell the main point here is the flaw in the old system allowing people to store more than the limit of PMs. This then caused a larger mess with importing.

So the best you can do is make due with what you have and move on.

None of my PM's seemed to be there other than my sent PM's, but I'll make due with what I have and move on. I do wish I had access to the old site just to retrieve some lost information, but that's life. I guess I learned my lesson for next time, backup all your important PM's if you are notified about an upgrade.
