    Have you ever had to empty your PM both. I bet some members such as the staff are always emptying the box while others have barely filled it at all.
    I have a few PM's but have never emptied the box.

    Before becoming staff I did so on at least 3 occasions but now I probably have TOO much space. The number of PM's I'd say has tripled in average and with 52% of my inbox full I'd guess I currently have nearly 150 messages stored.

    Never had to empty it, but I have a fair amount of PMs, dating from when I first joined this site. [​IMG]

    I had no idea of how much space the staff would have. I knew that it would be more than us regular members but not 10000.

    I've had to archive it several times, but after ramping up the limit for staff I haven't had to:

    When I was a mod I had to as I had the "reports" go to my inbox instead of email. This was during the SSBB month so a lot of people reporting others making ISO requests. And also there was a lot of PM's that either someone moaning about a warning I've given or someone trying to butter me up for something.

    Nowadays I just empty every few months, half the messages I get are from people wanting me to do something that only admin can do.

    I'm starting to think some people here never knew there was a Delete Option.

    My email box aswell as my PM boxes on forums or other sites like DA are always kept empty. I only keep something if I have business with it, like right now I currently have a few messages with a member here containing information I need cause I've shipped him my DS for repairs.

    I never had to empty it until a few months ago. Now I just clean it up every month or so.

    I haven't had to do it in a long while now, but soon after I got active in the forums I was PMing a few users a few times a day at least and I used the Archive and Delete option about 20 times.


    Too bad that feature is crap and my messages are now unusable [​IMG]. All my messages were jumbled or stretched out over the page.
