    Add more private messages??

    How hard would it be to let us keep a few more PM's kicking around? I'm always fighting to keep my inbox / outbox clear enough to use.

    Is storage that tight 'round here?

    I prefer it being set as it is... otherwise I have too many old messages.

    Just select the "save all as..." thing at the bottom, I save as a text file and back up to my computer.

    I put the question to all the moderators. This is beyond my expertise. I'll let you know when I hear back.
    Thanks,

    According to Tom Westbrook our IT tech guru. It would be possible to double the amount of private messages stored, but we would probably have to reduce the max size of PM's from 5,000 characters to 3,000 to compensate (most PMs are a lot shorter current overall average is about 780 chars per PM). Thoughts? I know all my PMs are pretty short.

    That would be great. I doubt I've ever had a PM that was over 3000 characters, but my mailbox seems to fill up pretty fast on a regular basis.

    The few people that write such lengthy PMs could just write two now and they would still have the same number left as before (and get an extra 1,000 characters!). Win-Win. I say go for it.

    Sounds like a good idea. However - I've never noticed the "save all" thing before - now all those bits of info I've accumulated and saved can be removed and space cleared up. Woo.
