    Ok, I must be really stupid...but I've just spent a great deal of time trying to find the saved (or even sent) Private Messages with no success.

    I see that PMs are now referred to as "conversations", and I have been through the "conversations" list and found all the received messages, but nothing else.

    Also seem to be having trouble finding a link or anything that directs me to posts or threads of mine.

    I'm having the same problems. Can't figure out how to see if there are new posts since the last time I've checked on threads I've been looking at and in general finding it very hard to get around.

    It would definitely be helpful if there were seperate inbox and sent folders for conversations !

    If there are new posts you can find the info as the red rectangle with the number of new posts at the top bar next to the Alerts icon ( the Bell). If you click the red icon you will be moved to the recent posts.

    If you need to see your posts move the cursor over your nick and from appeared menu choose the option Your Content. Also there is the Conversations one for accessing your PMs.

    While that's really helpful, it still doesn't address the fact that there are no seperate folders for sent/recieved PMs (now referred to as "conversations"), sent and received private messages are all in one long list.

    The same goes for posts and threads. It appears that you have to go down the list of posts and figure out when you created a thread, there is no distinction between the two.

    @GrauGeist thanks for that, I'm not sure the sent messages imported proper...I still have the data on old db, not gone.

    Let me play around with the database and see what needs to be done.

    I vote with Dave I've finally figured out the "magnifying glass" icon to get to "Your Posts" but it is not the same as on the old forum which had "My Replies". Where every thread I had replied to was listed and threads with new posts were in boldface. Can we get a My Replies type button?

    So are "conversations" private just like PM's?

    Also at the bottom of the convo is a box you can check that allows anyone in the convo to invite anyone else to the convo as well.

    Not sure if I like that.

    If a convo is indeed a private message, it should remain private. The other party should not be able to invite others to the convo.

    It appears to be, as I have looked through the "conversations" list and they are all past Private Messages and there doesn't appear to be any extra "privacy" settings for this feature.
