Disabling Direct Messages

I had a ton of stuff in direct messages to myself that I now cannot access as well as a few sentimental messages I would have liked to save. Wish there had been a heads up notice in advance pinned globally to allow users to save the content of any messages they wanted to keep externally.

I do not have a problem with disabling direct messaging, just a problem with losing the historical messages that were already there. Lost a ton of work and references that I am definitely going to miss!

Those still exist. https://community.brave.com/u/username/messages (where you replace username with your username) will take you to inbox.

So for you it would be https://community.brave.com/u/chocoholic/messages

@Chocoholic can you please confirm whether or not @Saoiray’s suggestion above works for you?

Yes! Thanks for the information. Now have it bookmarked for future reference. Also, the editing functions still work. Woot! Hopefully that link will work in perpetuity.

Yes it does. Very happy and relieved. lol

Excellent — glad there is a workaround for these cases and apologies for the lack of advanced warning.
