Someone along time ago said if I emailed a certain person on the admin list hat I would get help but that never happened. Who can I get ahold of to get my old photos back from the old site some of those photo I no longer have and some of my birds are no longer with me
Any advice would be helpful I’ve been on this site a lot of years and would love to have those things back

Hi mariar. From what I can see it looks like you (and a few others) have left a message on @Admin 's profile, but I'm not sure if he has seen it. You are better to message him directly, which you can do if you pull up his profile and click on the "Start Conversation" button - that's the new equivalent of the previous private messaging system. That way he should receive an email from you in addition to the private message - and his name is Dan.

Good luck and I hope this helps you! 🙏

I don’t have that when I pull up the admin I just have a follow button and when I click on the mail envelope icon it needs a name for a recipient so I typed in admin.3451 which looks like it’s part the name of the person I’m suppose to contact and it doesn’t work any other way?

Ok so if you click on or hover your cursor over this blue link, @Admin , you should get a pop-up that looks like this...

... so you can click "Start Conversation" and your message will go directly to Dan. :)

I'm sorry Mariar, I don't know why you are not getting the right button popping up at your end.

I will message Dan for you now though and ask him to see if he can recover your photos :)

No worries Mariar, I've messaged @Admin already so I hope to have a response soon. He may send it to me but I will forward it to you if he does.

Hey, I really know my way around computers! I still stumble around in the new platform! But once you get used to power windows, climate control, and lane assist—- it’s hard to go back!

this "new site" has its flaws..I STILL can't send a "PM" or "start conversation" When I click "start conversation" my curser doesn't appear so I cant type a "recipients" name..Only way I can send something is if someone sends me something first then I can respond. Given up on the whole thing now :-/

I think we figured out the issue with sending private messages. Can you give it another try @Mariar

Thank you so much for recovering my photos I literally started tearing up

Jim I'm so sorry to know that you are still having problems with messaging. Did you try to message @Admin ? Can you please try to start a new message with me @LaManuka ?
