Under the poster's name there is a field labeled "Location:" So far, it is blank for everyone and I didn't find the input field in the profile that allows me to change it.

It looks like all the PMs I was saving are gone . Is there any way I can get them back, Xyzzy?

Also, is there a way to remove the edit icon for posts that you do not permission to edit? It's not overly important, but it would be a bit less confusing.

My PM's are gone too. But I didn't "save" them in the Saved folder. I just left them sitting in my Inbox. AOL notwithstanding, I still wanted to keep them.

Both the ones in my inbox and in my save box are gone.

Specifically, I was looking for yours, xyzzy, so I could send you my new microscopic avatar.
I turned off the email address listing to prevent a bot from harvesting them...

If you need to add an avatar just upload it... I've switched the required post count limit to 0... (I also accidently set the avatar size to 75x75 pixels and since people have already uploaded ones that size I guess we'll leave it at that!)

Another thing, if I see a forum that has new post, indicated by the http://www.mersenneforum.org/images/on.gif icon, and I go read all the posts, when I go back to the home page, the icon is still yellow, and it stays yellow unless I click the "mark all post read" link inside the forum. Then the icon turns http://www.mersenneforum.org/images/off.gif. In the old forum, the icon would automatically turn from orange to gray if you read all the new posts in the forum.

I plan to put the old forum back up in a temporary location later today or tomorrow so you all can go and retrieve your lost private messages... (I may look stupid, but I'm learning! I backed everything up multiple times!)

Having a backup of the old proves your lack of stupidity.

Read more about it here.
I haven't finished reading that thread yet, but it describes the problem to a "T". It should have been fixed in version 2.8 according to the early posts, but we'll see what the final outcome is.
