Pm boxes too small!!

I hate to be a moan, but 5 messages is not enough. It is far too quick to fill up, especially when you are trying to talk to 2 people.

Now, i know what you are going to say, join the club and the pm box gets bigger, but this does not help when the recipiants box is full too. Especially when you need to send them 2 because the first missed a vital bit of info.

most forums have a limit of 50, 25 at the very very least, why is our limit 5? Would it be totally out of the question to up it to 10?

Sorry to be a moan,

Re: Pm boxes too small!!

For what its worth I have to agree with you, 25 would be a reasonable minimum.

Its not only a pain for the folk only allowed 5 msgs, its also a pain for others with bigger allowances to try and talk to them since their inboxes will be full.

The way it is, out of band e-mail is the most effective way to talk now, which takes AO out of the loop once you have bootstrapped e-mail addresses.

Novel idea...delete the old ones or download them

I suspect the plan is working though....if it's so much of a pain people will be more inclined to join

Re: Pm boxes too small!!

I want a 2.0 litre car but I don't want to pay for a 2.0 engine. Wouldn't it be fair if you put one in though cos obviously I need it and others would like to see me driving one

Resisting the point will not change the point
