    The previous site is archived, including all VMs, and posts and such. As far as everyone is concerned they're all gone. If you're wondering how to make VMs on here, it's usually by way of profile notifications, however you can also start "Conversations" with particular members, which are basically like Private Messages except as far as I know they can be between you and one member or you and many members.

    Everything I've built up over the years is gone I see.

    Yep. As the web gets older and we use it for longer, web preservation will become more and more important. It's sad we lost all that history but at the same time, we can't expect site owners to maintain such a thing themselves and carry that burden indefinitely.

    So if the previous site is archived, why can nobody look at it?
