    This is more of a thing for the older (imported) PMs, but would it be possible for a merge PM option to be added? Like to merge PMs into one conversation to clean up PM inboxes?

    This isn't essential at all, it would just be a nice feature

    Wouldn't it have to be temporary then? Unless you also plan on merging newer PMs?

    i think this is a good idea. it would help clean the clutter that is my mailbox. it would also lower the percent used as well

    THis is a very useful idea, although in no sure how hard it'll be to program.

    The code behind such a feature would be simplistic, it would largely be a SQL query — in fact half of the work gas already been done in transitioning the old PMs over in the first place.

    This would be much appreciated. Would help clean up my PM box.

    aha, I already deleted all my old PMs because they aren't merged (if I known this could happen sooner I wouldn't of deleted them) figured I'd go with a fresh start for my new PM box.

    Hate to do this, but "bump" (I have the horrible feeling this was overlooked on account of that mess of a unified thread).
    Non-essential, sure, but just boosting chances and whatnot.
