I don't actually know, since I never used Notes; however I would certainly guess they are still in existence on the server ( and on my back-ups of the forum [ generally as tar.gz ] ) --- but not accessible unless XenForo has a slip-in Notes-like addon that can automagically pick up the old Notes and embrace them. And that we can install such an addon.
Not wholly impossible, last night I inspected the new public_html folder on the server with ftp, and checked the old vbulletin /images folders were translated there. They were.
As a last resort I may be able to find out where vbull kept the notes in some format, but I doubt they are legible, because they really should have been encrypted to stop anyone but the user reading them.
I ran a search through a flat back-up on my computer, and my best guess is that these notes ( which are generally confused with user-notes when looking for 'xenforo notes', a note system for admins with too much time on their hands to make rude remarks about members, used elsewhere ) were provided by a 'vBulletin mynotes add-on', made in 2008.
I would upload the 2 php txts as informative, but there's a legal notice forbidding this ( ! )

So the good/bad news is that it is secreted away in the database somewhere. If I or someone can inspect an old database one day these may be extracted. Doesn't seem that likely...
Last month I downloaded various to look at databases ( which I would normally do to a simple extent online through dear old phpmyadmin ) and every one would only connect to databases online...
There are no clocks anywhere. I suggest adding a clock, to the home page at least, if feasible, so that we know what is meant when a post is said to have been added "Today at 8:12 AM" in terms of time zones. A message at the top saying "all timestamps in X standard" would do the trick too, I suppose.
When I edit my post it says it cannot edit because the length is too long. The post has more than ten thousand characters so even when I click edit it is impossible to click save because when I make changes I cannot delete 70 percent of my post because I need to keep the original text length. The font in the quotes brackets are too small and that is what I was trying to edit, to make the font more readable thus bigger (normal size) but I can't because I can't save the edit because the post is more than ten thousand characters.
