Answer:


You are still a part of the " unassigned " member group. To change that:

  1. Go to your profile by clicking your username on the top nav.
  2. Click on the gear icon at the upper right of your profile.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
  4. Select the member groups from the Profile Quota (member group) popup that best describes the personal or business reason for being a member of TheChocolateLife.
    1. All of the profile quotas shown have the same features and functionality.
  5. Click the " Save Changes " button.
  6. You should now see the missing features.

Old Messages: It looks like none of my messages transfered over. Is that correct? I had a bunch of old messages for reference. Are they accessible somehow?

No, none of the messages from the old site was transferred over, as I explained in at least one of my emails about the switch.

Howewer, they are still can be found on the old site, which is at discoverchocolate.ning.com. Log in with your old email address and password.

The site will up until at least the end of February so people can review their message box and take any necessary steps. Once I close that site down everything there will be lost forever.

No, none of the messages were transferred over to the new site. As I explained in at least one of the emails discussing the move, your old messages are on the old site, which is now at discoverchocolate.ning.com. Log in with your email and the password you used on the original site and you can go view your messages. The old site will be up at least through the end of February.

Speaking of messages - and it's probably because i'm not drinking enough coffee - but i can't for the life of me see how to send a message to someone on the new site.  I've seen reference to private messages, but it's not apparent to me how one actually sends the private message.  Is the funtionality not implimented yet, am i just getting too old to find the new technology, or is there a secret decoder ring one needs to use to find it 8-)

Sebastian -

The Private Notes function is implemented. You can find it by hovering over your name in the top nav. It should be the first item.

There is a twist, however. Right now you can only send Private Notes to people who are following you. This is done to prevent spammers using the Private Notes capability. If you want to connect with someone using Private Notes, the best thing to do is to go to their Profile and Follow them. If their account is set up to accept all follow requests, the Follow button will be replaced by Following. If the member's profile is set to "Approve Followers" then the button will be set to Pending and you will get an email when they approve.

I can turn the "only send notes to followers" off, and it might make sense to do that for the next month or so as members slowly claim their accounts. I will have to think about that.

For what it's worth, when I turned it on, I did not expect to find it in the top nav. I searched for it and searched for it ... and ended up having to ask the dev team where it was when it wasn't where I expected to be. Doh. Homer Simpson moment.
