Mine are gone too for what it's worth.

I hope they can be recovered, because I had a few unread messages.

Inbox gone.
Sent still there.

  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)

Inbox is indeed emptied out, messages will not be recovered. New messages will appear like normal.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Yeah, messages are gone.



                                                                                                             

Whoa, yeah. What happened?

Edit: does it have something to do with the NSFW messages debacle lately?

Yeah. Fixes being implemented.



                                                                                                             

Yes.

Unfortunately, the idiot spammer won that particular battle as I was testing and forgot my "where" clause. No messages were actually DELETED, but there is no way for me to programmatically figure out which of the 600k+ messages should TRULY be deleted, and which ones shouldn't. So, we're just going to have to live with it.

As mentioned - your "Sent" is still there, so you should be able to see most of any on going conversations you were having.

It's an inconvenience, I know - but there is collateral damage in almost any war. And with the upswing of providing a tool for moderators to mass-delete this crap, I hope we can all just forgive this mishap - it doesn't happen very often where I incorrectly wholesale delete or corrupt data (in fact, I think this is the first time in over a DECADE of working with this website!!!).

My bad - sorry... :(



Things happen. I'm certainly not going to complain about a mistake when someone is doing something positive for the website.

Most of my messages were just unsolicited cat pictures from Super Boom, anyway.
