Just been into my PMs and there's a load missing - all to one member. Am I right in presuming that if a member deletes their account all their PMs to another member go with their account? This is the only way I can understand this. The PMs I sent to this person are gone from my sent PM list too, btw.

I've never known this happen on other phpBB forums, so not sure what's gone on here. I just came to PM a mate to ask him if his dad's okay and there's nowt there - no previous PM exchanges, no sent PMs, etc. Very strange.

Users can't delete their account. Wink

Messages you've sent go in your outbox until they've been read by the recipient and then they move to your sentbox.

Thanks Ste. But what I'm saying is there's a BCF member, who I know irl, and we use BCF to contact each other, arrange to meet up, etc.

I came to send him a PM earlier - and there are no PMs from him or to him, despite the fact we've exchanged numerous PMs.

I can't figure out wth is going on with this.

Lol this is weird. I must be doing something really wrong or having an embarrassing senior moment or both.

My bet is that you've got the username wrong.

Any details of something you remember that he posted can be used to find that particular post and then you can see the username.

It's not this guy is it? https://www.bikechatforums.com/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=59361

Nope - definitely throttleape (but yes, could be e.g. _throttle_ape_ etc. etc. although I'm 95% certain the user name is just throttle-ape). However could one possibility be that, because he hasn't posted on nor made any threads his account has been suspended or deleted?

Just to be clear, I've exchanged a number of PMs with him - including some quite detailed ones explaining various routes we've ridden (and which I'd hoped were still in my sent box) - but there's no sign of any of them either in my main received PMs list nor in my sent box.

Accounts do not get suspended or deleted or anything like that.

Can you remember something about what threads he'd posted in? Was he in any of the regional forums?

Might you be thinking of a different forum to this one?

As I said, he hasn't posted in any threads that I know of. Afaik he created an account and that was the end of that, apart from just reading threads and PM-ing me. No posting, no starting threads - just browsing forums and PM-ing.

I'm 99% certain it was this forum.

Only thing I can is that all this messaging actually happened on email, and I've just misremembered it as BCF PMs. Man though - really do think it was bcf pms. Damn.

Ok - spoke to my mate earlier this afternoon and he assures me that we pm'd back and forth on bcf.

Current theory is that inactive accounts get auto-deleted - and take any previous PM activity with them.

Be useful if an admin could confirm this and if possible, say what level of inactivity triggers deletion.

cheers

Hi

Think accounts that haven't posted are cleaned up an deleted. Would expect those that have PMed to count as posted, but not sure

All the best
