    [​IMG]...Props to you playallday.....

    But I also agree. One day I was at 50%, then the next I know it, I'm at 91%. [​IMG]

    3 things:
    You can backup your PM box, click on archive messages and you can save it to HTML or MS excel formats.

    Sent messages count towards the limit, I am guessing more than a few quotes happen (hopefully that HTML bug has gone now).

    Do you really send that many PMs? Not to say anything but for me I notice a lot of good stuff happens in PMs and unless I drag it to the forums it gets lost in the ether which is a shame as a lot of good info is contained within.

    On the other hand I am going to go "ner ner ner ner ner", it seems staff have rather large box.

    I agree. I don't like deleting most of my pm's.

    I'm pretty much just the opposite of you guys. I like to keep my PM folder emptied out as much as possible. I don't get many PM's anyway.....I'm just not that type of member to do things through PM very often.

    Should really clean up, I don't see why people need to keep so many in, I only keep the "mod ones" at times.

    I'm glad to know I contributed 3 messages towards that [​IMG]

    I agree, its annoying having to delete PM's just so that noobs can spam me.

    We have 163,974 registered members at the moment, increasing PM box for 200 would have to be done for everyone (and accounts that aren't used as well), and with current problems this site is having (servers and all) this would only make a lot of trouble, and possibly slow down the site..

    It's not true that you need to have 300 PM's that are so important to you, and that you read all of it from time to time!

    How about creating a donation privilege?
    Depending on the amount you donate the larger your PM box becomes and you earn some type of donating rank?

    Because we get a lot of PMs compared to normal users? ;p I personally get around 5-20 a day on various things including the cheat database, problems with the site, bugs and so on.

    Pretty much silly question, don't you think? Give it a though, and answer is obvious!
