[SOLVED] Private Message Inbox Capacity
« on: January 17, 2017, 11:04:22 PM »
[SOLVED]: PM capacity is set by freshman, junior, and hero levels - see Erica's post below for details. Thanks Erica :)

[Original message]:
The private message inbox capacity seems low to me - I'm freaking out over here as I'm already almost out of space, and don't want to prune my PMs. Am I missing something? I like looking back at my PMs, for example, because some of them are funny. Maybe there is a mod to expand capacity or to export messages? If so, please let me pay for it right now just so I don't have to prune my inbox. I'm sort of joking, but mostly not.

Do others see value in this or do you have a work around?
Thanks!

Hi Brad,
This is the first time anyone has said anything about it.  :D So I will definitely look into it and get back to you.  :)

How can you tell you are reaching your limit?

Thanks Erica!
Jamie, when I click "My Messages" it shows my list of messages, and in the top right corner above the messages it says "15 messages - 75% capacity". On the left hand side above the messages it shows an orange capacity bar (it used to be green, but presumably it's warning me that I'm close to capacity).
Kindest Regards,
Brad

Hi Brad,
I think I read this somewhere ages ago, but I am not sure.  Perhaps Erica can confirm. Initially (new members) have a limit to the number of messages in the mailbox.  After a certain number of posts that limit is automatically removed.  I think it's 50 or a 100 posts.  (Because,  I am not seeing that message in "My Messages")
I vaguely recall reading this ages ago.

Also,  please don't suggest any "payment" options on here.  Erica has a very very bad habit of going ahead and paying for all the mods herself and refuses to accept anything in return.
Despite numerous offers by all of us, she WILL NOT agree to contributions.

I think we need to hold some form of Intervention Therapy for her to get her to accept help  ;D

@prasad!!!!  lol!!  Do you think we ought to start just sending her nibs, ink, paper, etc. as payment???  Although, those items will not buy her time, so it's not the best solution.  Only a start. 

We love you, Erica!

OK thanks Prasad.. I hope it's 50 posts, I'm so close to that :).
And thanks for the warning about the "payment options". In the U.S. you can of course buy the lovely issues of Dasherie for yourself, and for the calligraphy lovers in your life - but, alas, they are in limited supply :(. besides, each issue is worth every dollar in and of itself.

Kindest Regards,
Brad

LOL! Thank you Prasad and Bianca and Brad!  ;D

Yes Prasad, that is correct! I completely forgot about that. I will see if I can adjust that for you Brad.  ;)

Prasad is correct! Thank you for refreshing my memory!  ;D

Freshman members have a maximum of 20 PMs. But once you reach 50 posts, you are a Junior member and the limit is 500. Super Hero limit is 1,000.

The limits help reduce the chance of spammers and reduce memory used. Since you are almost to 50 posts, you should be all set.  ;D
