    This past week, I've had to empty my private message box three times! I'm about to do it again. Can't we raise the limit to around 100? Or, if you buy the Demi-God/dess package, you can get more messages?

    Just a thought.

    Heh, there's a pic below.

    Delete all the ones in your "sent" box that you don't need anymore.

    you can also save them all to text, then delete them all from your PM box. :)

    Geez, I have (counts files) 53 text files containing all of the PMs I've sent and received on MR. (I used the export option to save them out.)

    Yes, I keep all my PMs... I treat them like e-mails that I want to keep. I still have e-mail from as far back as 1992 in some of my folders. :)

    What am I doing wrong? I've been a member for more than 3 years and I have made more than 2300 posts and I've never had to empty my PM box! :confused: :(

    Be glad that you're not a moderator having to PM a bunch of people. I'm still at a maximum of 100 messages and continually have to keep things cleaned out.

    Nice. I only have to clear my PMs less than twice as often. Yay! :)

    BTW, if you're getting PMs from the same few people over and over then I recommend using MSN Messenger. It's a brilliant, stable, intuitive, well integrated app.

    Thanks for the nice bump... :)

    On a side note, can there be a larger piece of text telling us that we have a new private message. I often don't realise that I have a PM until days later.
    Because of this tincy wincy little bold digit
    I mean for Pete's sake, might as well make it an Inviso™ bold

    You can set your options so that it pops open a message box telling you that a new PM has arrived.

    Mine still says 70 max...where are you seeing 150?

    It takes like 5 seconds to empty your PMs...you're on here a lot more than 5 seconds a day...empty them every night.

    I also got an expansion. Of course, I've got to delete four times as many posts now, in order to stave off a disk drive upgrade. :p :D

    I'm joking.

    Yeah, I have 150 maximum PMs as well now - didn't actually notice when that change took place, but it's nice to have I guess. Mind you, I'm so conscious now of how quickly the PMs build up, I try to keep things as lean as possible anyway, regardless if the limit was 50 or 150.

    He must be on one of his rants. :D (just poking fun iGary)

    More to the topic of the post:

    I do think that those of us that have become Demi Gods should have greater email storage on MR. It can be looked at as a value add.

    I have some posts that I have not had time in moving off MR to more permeant storage.

    I would be willing to give up on the "private" forum for more storage space. Hell I might be willing to kick in more money for the privilege.

    Color me red right now.

    After seeing your post I went and checked my "inbox". Now I have some added space.

    It appears that the quota is based on number of messages, not the space they take. I would still like to see a difference for those of us that sending money to MR, as to those that think post counts are all there is.
