I can't see what you typed. I did this in Stata 7
egen max = max(mpg), by(rep78)
egen min = min(mpg), by(rep78)
label def rep78 1 "v. poor" 2 poor 3 mediocre 4 good 5 "v. good"
label val rep78 rep78
gra max min rep78, xla(1/5) c(II)
The labels get shown on the x axis.
With value labels defined, and an explicit call to -xlabel()-,
text will be shown. Labels will, however, get truncated
at 8 characters and there is a limit on how many -xlabel()-
arguments you can have (25). Things are different in
Stata 8, of course.

Evidently you are on Statalist. There has been no noticeable
decline in volume since mid-spring in your area (*), as a
glance at the archives will show. Statalist has
not changed since the release on Stata 8, apart from the
convention that members should state if they are using
a version earlier than 8. I can only guess that what
you have observed is some local artifact on which
only local experts can advice. Perhaps Statalist
is triggering some over-zealous spam filter.
(*) Members of Statalist are asked to avoid hemispherist statements.
Always remember that many of our members are in another hemisphere
from you: sometimes they have been so since birth; sometimes they have
made a personal life choice. Whatever the reason, your assumptions
seasonality may not apply to them.
