The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.

They are kind of difficult to find.  Try this:

Mine are all still there.  You are unlucky.

I am not a moderator.  Sorry I can't be of any more help.

I just looked and sure enough it looks like mine are gone too.  I'll ask the IT guys.

ETA: nope, they're not.  Just looking in the wrong place.  Follow Dave's advice.

First thing I do when logged on is go to unread messages.
I apologize if anyone was asking something of me, and I didn't respond.
It wasn't listed in the unread messages.  I find messages in the forum
that I'm pretty sure I didn't read, but wasn't listed in the unread.

i know this is a semi-minor thing. so i mean, don't worry too much i guess.

i'm going to test-send an email to someone to see if i can see it.


edit: yup, i just sent one and i still can't see it.

Okay, Just fixed it.

There was a setting under >profile >account settings > personal messages.


"Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default" - It was unchecked, though i don't believe i unchecked it. I checkmarked it and I can now see sent messages that I have sent since checking it.
