Lost feedback and messages

I just went to look for an old host (to ask him a question about his region) and I found that both my messages and my feedback from prior to 2013 is gone. That totally sucks! 

Is there a way to recover this information so that I can contact the person?

WS should definitely notify users prior to deleting personal content - I would have happily complied a list of my old contacts. I have successfully used WS as a f**ebook substitute for years, maybe thats not such a wise idea though?

It's not really obvious where

It's not really obvious where feedback received ends and feedback given begins but if you scroll to a little more than half way down the page, you will find page selectors [ https://i.imgur.com/Rvbbyau.png ], clicking on page 2 and scrolling down, the first entry is June 30, 2011 - did you have feedback from others before that date that is missing?

As for your feedback given, there is a bug that means it will not automatically paginate after 25 entries, I'm pretty sure all your feedback is still in the system there just isn't a way of getting to it from your profile at the moment (for more info and bug reports see: https://www.warmshowers.org/node/257754 )

Feedback received is okay.

Feedback received is okay. Just the given feedback is unavailable- thanks for the explanation. 

My old messages are also gone though, is that the same pagination issue?

No, your messages should

No, your messages should paginate. Mine go back to 2012 - I'm not sure if I'm recalling correctly but I think WS operated on a direct email system, so this may just be around the time when on site messaging was first implemented.
