PM's

Can we get bigger inboxes? I've had to empty mine several times now, and theres some important stuff that I've had to delete...I was thinking maybe 150-200 messages...not too much, since I've seen forums that can have up to 1,000...Opinions?

How important can a PM on an online forum be? PM's sitting in an inbox = used bandwidth = more money spent to maintain this forum. If they're important enough to keep, save them to a word document on your computer or send them to your e-mail that you pay for.

I don't pay for my e-mail, but I also forget about bandwidth...would it really take up that much though, doesn't every post take up roughly the same amount as one PM?

I guess it wouldn't be too hard to save them to a word document either...

I agree with the Hobo. If there is such thing as an "important PM" save it to a word document or email.

How the hell can you have so many PMs? I've had 32 TOTAL, and I've been here since mid 2004. But yeah, instead of wasting bandwith save them to a word document and take up your own HD space.

I agree that it can be a pain....keep having to delete them can be a hassle.

It's because I ask a good bit of questions...like about games, and computers...and sometimes it will take a while for me to understand what's going on...Also I'll flame the n00bs who advertise, and they PM me saying stuff like

"Just go away, and stick your *expletive* in your *expletive* and go suck your *expletive* and then I'll *expletive* your mom. These *expletive* forums are a *explative* joke... and then we get into a flame war, and they get banned ..

Like here's my most recent one, with Frank Dedios (got banned after 2 posts, you can tell very quickly who it is...)

would a "gay fag" be straight, then?
