    Sorry if this has been asked before, but were Private Messages archived along with the old forum? Can I still access all those old messages, or are they lost forever? Thanks!

    Private messages require authenticated access, and no regular user can sign onto that forum anymore, so you won't be able to get at them yourself.

    You have been given a clear, well-in-advance warning of the loss of access when the migration happened in 2016. Anyone who failed to manually save copies of important PMs by that stated deadline is entirely at fault.

    Thanks, it turns out I was able to find what I needed from email notifications about PMs plus the profile pages in the archive. I wanted to get in touch with someone I exchanged messages with long ago.
