Hehe, took me 2hrs to get my PMs saved.

But now that I have them in my email I can browse them very quickly, I'm now glad I did this to be honest.  :thumbup:

People, don?t forget to secure also your sent PMs, if you feel there is anything important for you there!

According to the plan, the private messages should expire today, but we will wait till Friday to give you a few more days if haven?t saved the messages yet.

So you make $1000+ a month in profit and you can't afford to keep around the PMs of the active userbase? Pretty sad if you ask me.

Awwww I hit a sore spot. Must be rough having the users hear the truth... since you didn't bother to correct me. Guaranteed that dropping even a few hundred thousand PMs won't speed any page up by more than half a second.

Website Announcements and Feedback
Here's where the site administrators announce changes to the website. You can also post your opinions and suggestions about how we can make the Shroomery better.

Seems like you DID ask for my opinion... or should that read:

Truth? What truth?
That you kept 2 servers worth $2000+ bought with Shroomery's money??
That you kept $1000+ of the advertisers fees that were payed in advance??
That you still have the Shroomery database with all the messages we are going to delete here due to security reasons?? (Nobody ever said it is going to speed up page load, bother to read the post first...)

You have your website that needs MUCH, MUCH work to become anything worthwhile to visit , why are you waisting your time here?
Don?t post here just to post, use your time for something beneficial, don?t waste your and our time here.

The servers were running Shroomery fine, you guys chose to change the DNS to point to a different crappy one. It was your choice not mine. They are sitting in the same exact spot they have been for the last 10 months.

The advertisers that had paid before didn't come close to $1000, and the money had already been spent to pay for the Shroomery's hosting.

My website has a much better start than Shroomery did when it first began, so don't worry about it.

You're going to steal things from me and then expect me to hand over even more things that I worked hard to bring to fruitation... I'm not a fucking retard.

I'm paying half a grand a month to fulfill the contract I signed for Shroomery, with less than 1/4 of the money you have coming in, and you sit here and bitch. Do your user's a favor and actually LISTEN to them. You will see that they would rather have their PMs kept on the server.

Helllllllo, let's not dance with the skeletons from the closet, hmm?  Don't wanna be closing important threads like this one, or banning important members like yourself.

FYI, we have still not yet broke even from the December switch.  We've put more $ into the site and still must invest roughly 2x more than we've already put into the new server and hosting necessary to get this place fully operational again and running legitimately.  Any of the admins, technical or otherwise, can vouch for this as I've been posting balance sheets for both the vendors billing cycles in addition to the main Shroomery holdings for all administrators to review.  So wherever this $1000 of profit is comin' from, I sure ain't seein' it :crazy:

It might help to add a delet message tickbox, at the bottom of
an open pm. This makes it easyer to delet the message as you
reply to it, as they tend to build up unoticed, after you have replyed to them.

If I'm an important member, why is Anno saying that my opinion is not welcomed here? I was simply trying to point out that keeping the PMs of the currently active memberbase would not make or break the site. I just see it doing more bad than good. Personally I've tried a few email addresses and am unable to recieve emails sent from the shroomery, making it impossible for me to backup my PMs.

My $1000+ figure came from the fact that you are bringing in roughly $1600 a month in banner revenues. Is it really going to make you guys go broke if you spend a little extra money and keep the PMs around? I know when I was first starting out as a Shroomery admin, I but many dollars of my personal income into the site to keep it 'without limits' as far as pic uploads, PM space, etc goes.

You have 6-7 admins to contribute, when there was only Thor and myself to contribute back in the day. You guys can't be hurting THAT bad, not badly enough to warrant taking features away from users.

I recently decided to delete all of my pms. Until today there were two messages in my received total field that I could not view (a 2 corresponding to nothing). They were from a deleted user and were deleted as soon as I could view them, but I'm left wondering what the reason for this was.
Thanks.

I did keep backups over the years of all the databases when I was an administrator.. so I do have many cd's burned with backups, but no longer have any on my personal computer. I could care less about any messages stored on them and would never give anyone access to them.
People who conduct sensitive and/or illegal things through PMs should rethink how they do things, as no server on the internet is completely unhackable. I'd be more worried about some of the current people who have access to the Shroomery server than who has old backups of things.

Everyone IS at risk, but not because of myself.

2. The second probably more important reason is the amount of personal information stored in those PMs. This is a GREAT security risk for our members in the (unlikely but possible) event that the government seizes the server together with all the information that is on it.



WTF, isnt the pictures we can't delete a bigger security issue for us??? Aint you guys gonna do something about that?
