    Maximum private message count?

    What is it? My limit all of a sudden filled up: once I received a PM on the new forum, about 1000 PMs from the old forum appeared, filling my box up.

    I'd actually rather not delete any, but if I must, I'd like to know how many it must be.

    And is there any chance the limit could be increased across the board, or I could be given a higher limit for being such a nice guy?

    I'm pretty sure 1K is the limit.

    You could always include a small donation to help defray forum expenses with your request for special privileges.

    But, who the heck goes back and hunts up info from 1K worth of messages? Its not like they're love letters.

    LOL! I've done it on several occasions.


    Maybe I should donate again, huh? I've lost my special "activist member" status that I cherished so dearly! Now I'm just a "campaign veteran".

    Actually ... in our donation hierarchy, Campaign Veteran is higher than Activist Member.

    PS. Any of the donation statuses (Activist, Veteran, Founders, Centurion, etc) now can have up to 5000 stored PMs ... because I am a nice guy and appreciate your support of the forum!

    Well, gee, thanks, John!

    By the way, is there a current thread regarding further donations?

    You can also download them all into a file for later review/use. That's what I do when my box fills up.

    I don't have 1000 people who want to talk to me because everyone is out to get me.

    Not everyone is out to get you. Some of us are just handling the logistics.
