*notes about trading with me…
I do not like drawn out deals. Id like to have a deal signed and complete within 48 hours.
I abide by the unwritten rules… lower rating ships first pays first.
I always provide delivery confirmation and expect the same.
All deals are US only.

Are you looking at the history? Generally, if one half is missing it is because that half of the conversation deleted the original message.

Right, did you delete the messages on your end?

From the sent items, yes.
Does it use those to fill in my portion of the messages in my inbox?

As a general rule, (IMO) you should never bother to Delete your sent messages. They don't delete from the recipient's inbox; only your Sent. that means only YOU won't see your side of the conversation.
Also, the site will auto-delete them, once your Sent gets full.

Lower rating? You ship first.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.

Thanks Eric.
My sent was just about full so i figured I'd better delete some.
That's good to know that the site will handle it.
