Private Messages PM's In Trash - Automatically Emptied After 20 Messages

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

This question has been coming up a few times:

 

Q:  How do I empty the PM's in my message trash?

 

Answer: We leave PMs in Trash indefinitely. However, once each night, we'll check to see if you have more than 20 Trashed PMs and delete the oldest ones after there are 20+.  For example, if there are 25 PMs in your trash box, we'll delete the oldest 5 and will leave the remaining "newer" trashed messages in place.

 

We may add a "delete trash" feature in the future, but it is a relatively low priority.

Every 20 PM's would have been okay for the old format's way of one message per PM. But for those of us who can amass dozens of replies into a single PM series, this is no help at all.

In my case it's actually hundreds, but even so, for the less chatty among us, it is still a problem.

Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Some people hear their inner voices with great clearness, and they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... Or they become legend.

I thought Mods were busy monitoring everything else anyhow.. wouldn't it be easier to not to have to go through each users PMs and delete them, and just let the user do it?  To me that would be better TQM (Time Quality Management).

Moderators don't have access to your PM's, unless you report one, and then just to that one and its replies.  The computer does it.

We've asked our developers and they have told us it's probably not going to happen any time soon :(

 

They are making other bugs and improvements a priority right now. Hopefully someday that feature will be an option.
