    Private message boxes

    Hello Red5

    Is it at all feasible to increase the capacity of the private message boxes? They're awfully small.

    Mine is constantly overflowing, forcing me to delete messages that I'd rather not delete.

    Re: Private message boxes

    Interesting coincidence. (This thread.) I recently deleted all of my messages since that seemed to be the only feasible option.

    Re: Private message boxes

    Out of curiosity, what's the limit? I've got 385 incoming and 280 sent items. I've never had a warning about it being even close to full. I have no idea why I've even still got those messages, to be honest. I actually want to keep about ten of them. No doubt clearing out those boxes will be something I'll get round to during lockdown!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    When I was a general member I had a very low limit. I hit it repeatedly and had to clear my mailboxes. I think it was a hundred messages.

    Now that I'm a moderator, that limit has gone away.
    I am not a teacher.

    Yeah, it's 100 for non-mods. That figure includes both Inbox and Sent items.

    I can ask the Webmaster to ramp it up.

    Re: Private message boxes

    OK, done!


    • Registered Users (< 10 posts) can't use messages (as it's always been)
    • Registered Users (10 - 499 Posts) now have up to 500 messages
    • Registered Users (500+ Posts) now have up to 1,000 messages (same as Mods)
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
