Do your private messages stay around forever or not?

Im not sure if one of my pm conversations has disappeared? Do they stay there forever or do they automatically delete after a certain time frame?

I hope not because I need to keep them for reference purposes and have been given some good advice via pm.

  • They do go away after 3 months of account inactivity.
    I wish they didn't. I met my boyfriend on here and I really wish I still had the messages we sent to each other to look back on. I think it would be funny and cute. I can't believe this website doesn't keep a record of messages. Just another stupid thing about gag I hate.

  • Messages more than three months old get deleted. If you need to keep messages for whatever reason, take screen shots.

    • It's better to save the web page as html. That way you can view it in a browser and search and copy /paste

    • Just loading all the messages and hitting ctrl + s, or command + s

  • Private messages that are more than three months old are automatically deleted by the system.

    • I wish they were kept for all time, like questions are, but with a proper time and date stamp as well.

  • They're deleted after three months.

  • They don't disappear unless they are not being used or you delete them without knowing. Or you could take screen shots for proof just in case they do disappear
