    Of course you can't mass PM users.
    Mass Pm'ing users is for staff only.

    why not costello? it would be useful to send a PM to more than one person... within a limit of course. like maybe up to 5 users a time. all the other ipboards can do it =/

    Idea for improving the board? I think it'd be good.

    Costello does bring up a good point, others may abuse it to mass spam members with adverts and what not.

    I don't know, it seems like I've already been spammed even with single-person message limits, though I might be thinking of a different forum.

    I'm obviously no mod, but I think it would make sense to be able to PM up to 5-10 people at once, with abusers being Warned and losing their PM privileges.

    the point is that it would be even easier for a random person to join the site just to spam/advertise and not care about being being banned, especially if they're able to create another account from another ip address/location. It's more or less impossible to prevent this from happening.
