Demoted? Or is there a problem with the PM System?

This is a discussion on Demoted? Or is there a problem with the PM System? within the The Registry forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. All of a sudden my PM limit went from 500 back down to 10. Mind you, I wasn't anywhere near

All of a sudden my PM limit went from 500 back down to 10.

Mind you, I wasn't anywhere near to having 500 messages, the grand total was 63, and I've now nuked them all, but something's up.

When I was put on the MS Tech Team my PM box size for all messages went way up (and, as an aside, I believe that 10 is far too few, even for a "mere mortal member," we should be a bit more generous).

Just wondering what's occurred?

Just noticed that, too, along with the absence of my signature.

What's odd is that I can still post here.

I have also received no correspondence, of any sort, that suggests to me that I've been, or was going to be, demoted or have my status changed. It's all very strange.

VS is getting ready to migrate to a newer platform.

They are working on User Groups.

OK. Now I can get in, but as Bruce said, 90% of our User Groups are gone.

VS is adding the categories a few at a time. Managers are now Super Mods-5.

Gotta be careful when adding user groups....they may have access to ALL areas.

VS better hurry: https://www.techsupportforum.com/for...ml#post7784072
Also, all categories seem to be finished and no separation of forum vs. global mods. 4 or 5 just for vendors.

I'm honoured and appreciate it but this is news to me. It's no problem though, I accept.

Things are still "quite irregular" as far as I can tell.

I saw the announcement a short while back about the forum being ported over to XenForo software, but I would have thought that any major changes would have occurred then, with a parallel system in place for testing purposes, where new messages would be repeatedly swept up in to it until the time for the "flash cut" was determined.

The lack of any communication on this is pretty bad, in my opinion.

You have not lost anything I asked the same question it's a forum update issue. I was gone for several months. Be patient this is an older legacy forum it's likely going through some new changes.

Patient or not, it is unacceptable to be left completely in the dark that:

1. This was being planned.
2. The possibility of "issues" existed when the plan was executed.
3. The plan execution had started.

There is a communication problem here, and is should be fixed. Forum staff, at all levels, should not be unaware like this.
