More than 50 PM limit

Post by Quirinus on December 23rd 2014, 12:03 pm

Can we please have more than 50 PMs? At least for admins (and maybe mods & some selected users)?

I mean, I get at least like 3-4 PMs every day, then I respond to them and get a response, then have to clarify or elaborate something in it, and before you know it, I've got like 10+ new pms in my inbox, some of which I don't want to immediately delete. (plus constantly deleting them few-by-few as I get new ones is a pain in the backside). Then some people don't quote conversations so I can't have it all in one PM, or spend more time and effort to get it all on one PM with multiple quotes. Same thing with the sentbox. My savebox is full too, so I can't really save some messages I wanted to.

Combining messages and then sending them to myself so I can save more than one message in my savebox is just plain stupid. Saving them in a file on my computer is also kinda stupid. Making a "private" thread and storing them there is also not really private and a good solution.

Can we just get the limit increased? A regular user doesn't have to deal with so many PMs, and 95% of their PMs aren't important enough that they can't be deleted immediately, unlike admin (and maybe mod) PMs.

It has come to the point where I'm thinking of writing a script/bot that will bypass the forum inbox and store my PMs on an external server, if you can't help with this. And coding such a thing would probably take more time, that I don't have much of, than you increasing the limit (and it would help only me instead of all the forums), plus it's kinda stupid that I would have to resort to something like that...

I'm sure that many other admins of some of the forums that aren't small have the same problem.
We would be very grateful if you could help us with that!

This is probably one of the more easier (and less time demanding) things to implement, and would be immensely useful.

Expand the limits of Forumotion is really a great idea Very HappyE.g: more avatar storage, more smileys.

I'm abstaining from voting.

This has been an open suggestion since 2011, it hasnt happened yet, it's so very safe to assume this won't be happening unless the devs need a quick "Lets keep them happy" update.

Yes, the suggestions are read and applied strictly from the French support forum, not from any other language. I expect staff to not give false hope

yes the french invented a way to store our pm's on public profile, yet 50 mp limit is quickly gone.
What we make of it? a big "yes" ... it is time forumotioon reviews this...

my suggestion follows the same lines, http://help.forumotion.com/t137854-system-to-save-pms-in-one-click-for-our-forums (from pm's save box to profile)

We need a large space to store pm's on an area with infinite capcity Wink
