Default PM inbox

Please can we have an increase in the maximum storage space allowed in your PM inbox. I keep filling up. Only needs to be maybe like 35, but any increase would be nice.

PS i know there are ways to empty your inbox into a CSV, etc. but these aren't really terribly practical.

Not Allways, but it's often handy.

If your speaking to a number of people then the message count QUICKLY add's up.

Default Re: PM inbox

well if you need to kepp them anyway you should keep them backed up onto your own computer seeing as you can never be sure with this forum and its db problems

and if you speak to people sending messages in that quick sucession then maybe its better off talking on an im client seeing as you have to wait between sending messages anyway

david isnt running a message storage system here he is running a forum and 40 pms really should be enough storage for everyone
and you can download them as text which is perfectly acceptable IMO nothing wrong with that

and anyway there are more pressing things that need fixing around here imo rather than adding to the db lets get it running perfectly first

I only get 25. All of the other sites that I'm on (other than the Benheck forums, which have 250) have a max of 100 PMs.
