    Hi all,

    Just wondering whether anyone else is finding any of their private conversation threads disappearing this week. Started one with a mate on here on Monday and wondered why I had not recieved a reply but just noticed that the conversation is no longer amongst my conversations... also spotted that at least one other has also gone.

    Any clues? Cheers.

    Sorry if it's a stupid question, but are you looking at the conversations page itself, or just the dropdown box when you hover over the Inbox link?

    I believe Conversations are deleted only if all participants leave it, so not sure why they would disappear.
    Unless they also disappear if everyone else left, not including yourself. That wouldn't be very logical though.

    I can see all the convos I have had, or it looks like it, too many to really know.

    But something that I have noticed is that I cannot see threads created by my ignored forum members are not shown in the topic lists. Maybe that can be fixed because some people's comments in it might be interesting.

    I am looking at the actual conversation threads and the conversations that have disappeared have just two participants neither of whom have left. Thanks for the response though.

    You probably clicked the the "leave this conversation" link followed by "ignore future messages" by mistake. Thats the only reason how a message can disappear from your inbox.

    Nothing here? http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/conversations/

    Messages don't delete* themselves, that's for sure :)

    (*unless you have been pm'ing with Ethan Hunt, his messages will self-destruct in five seconds)

    Nope definitely haven't left the conversations. One is a conversation I only created on Monday and the recipient has never even seen it. The other is a long standing one that included quite a few pages. Very odd...

    The only thing you can do to make it appear is to ask the recipient to reply and it will show again as message will not be physically deleted unless all participants leave the conversation.

    Thats the problem though Bram, he has never seen it so can't reply. I posted it on Monday... saw it listed in the conversations so know it was there but got no reply and only realised yesterday when I was sent a message in another conversation thread that it had gone along with another we had. It's no biggie as long as it's not a recurring issue.

    Does any have problem with cut & paste on this site? Everytime i need to link (not rival sites ect, just youtube autosport ect.) it takes me ages unless i drag it over from the url? Every other site i use is fine. Just thought i'd bring it up :thumbsup:
