Private message deletion


For the administrator
Why did you delete the content of “My Messages” ?
Is it voluntary or a maintenance ?
Thanks for answering


Hello Zorkas,
I dont know the answer but I’ll try to steer you in the right direction. I never heard of that happening before.

For the administrator
Heres a link to pm one of the staff (I just picked a staff at random as I have no idea which staff member to ask) If and only if I had to take a guess, I would say its maybe for maintence.(I can't think of any other reason then that) Maybe messages got filled up so it deleted the oldest one. Maybe it gets removed after so many years. I have one thats in 2016.;u=892247

If your going to look into it, I hope you get a answer :slight_smile:

I still have messages going back to 2006, so time based deletions isn’t it.

Curiouser and curiouser. :o :o

Damm that's impressive. I can never keep anything for a long time, maybe that's one reasons why I don't have kids !ot! >:-D


Good morning all,

Thank you for your answers
The messages came back :slight_smile:
Likely an SMF forum database error ?


ps: I manage an SMF forum a request to check the SQL is enough to repair the indexes
