    This isn't my department on the OGF, but can give you an answer :D We have a limit of 100 because of space being taken up by members who don't clean out their pm's. This creates a problem when you have a bunch of members with 100's of stored pm's. On the old site, we had members with over 1000 pm's stored, and more than just a few.........CATKING

    KSUFLASH respect our rivers please

    delete the PM messages in your sent folder, and that will allow you a bit more room in your inbox. If you have 50 in your sent then you can only have 50 in your inbox. Delete the sent and get much more space.

    KSUFLASH makes an excellent point. Just delete your " Sent " messages, and this will open up alot more space. CATKING ( Thanks Ben ;) )

    If i delete messages i've sent that are unconfirmed, will that prevent people from viewing them ?
    Or do they just show up like that depending on whether or not that have chosen to send confirmation ?

    The reason we limit the number of PM's you can save is do to space on the site. If everyone would save unlimited PM's we would fill up the storage area. 100 is a lot of messages. Several have given good idea on how to help out. If you have some that are several months old, indeed copy and paste them to a file.

    I will ask the tech gurus if we can possibly bump you guys up to 150 without hurting bandwidth.

    At the bottom of your PM page there's this:
    Unread Message
    Read Message
    Replied-to Message
    Forwarded Message
    Download all Private Messages as :
    XML | CSV | Text

    So download them as text & I think then you'll have a file of them. I had several thousand in the old site ;) They were good, some great gossip, and lots of hot spots. I downloaded them all into a file. That's after I went & deleted hundereds of them.

    ...I saved mine to a disk before the "other" site crashed and burned. :cool:
    As a moderator we get a lot more than most members, and its fun to pull the old ones out and look at where we've been, and what we've done. Plus , like mrfish said ... there are also all those "hot spot" locations you don't want to lose the locations of...;) :cool: :D
