Question Please increase the maximum number of Private Messages on vb.org

Please increase the maximum number of PMs to 1.000. 500 PMs including sent messages does not allow me to store all the important correspondence with coders. I know I can download old messages and clear out what I have, but vbulletins PM history is very useful when talking to coders and discussing code edits. Especially if they respond after a long time.

I third, fourth, and 5th. I have to delete my inbox constantly and sometimes i'd rather keep some of the conversation just for reference and what not since the majority are requests.

Same here but you know this will increase the vb.org DB and they just took down the servers to make them better... if it's a no for now perhaps when you switch to 4.0 I mean I would settle for 750 even

It'll never happen. I couldn't even get an increase when I left the staff here. Staff were allowed a limit of 1000 so upon being dropped to 500 I had to go and delete over 500 of my messages Exports don't cut it, to be frank.

Well that stinks. At least they should give the coders/designers more privileges here. Just a suggestion.

I usually just ask people to move the conversation to Email. More convenient.

Mind you, I have hit the peak quite a few times now and maybe that is a factor. More would definitely be helpful.

There have been several occassions where I've had to delete pms. I can't agree that 500 pm messages would be so important that they have to be kept. I guess popularity has it's pit falls. I find if you insert a "please don't pm me for support" this will lower your pms.

Having a full pms does have it's positives. I personally think we should have them lowered not increased. Something around 1-2 as a maximum limit would be good. I'd be totally against an increase in the pm amount.

That's what I would do as well, that way I could use outlook to organize all the messages, and can reply from the phone that way

that being said, my inbox is 96% full ATM

We have discussed this internally, and feel that a large increase (100%) is simply not justified.

In fact, the number of members who are close to the current limit is very small (less than 0.1%).

However, we have gone ahead and applied a 20% increase (to 600). Note that any further increase is extremely unlikely.

PS Unless you clean up, any limit will not be enough after some time.

Just what I think!

500 is already too much and if you are finding it less, you'll also find 1000 less.
