    A button that when clicked would automatically check all the PMs for deletion so we don't have to individually select each PM when we just want to clear out our whole inbox.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Go to your Messages section and look in the lower left hand corner of the screen. You'll see "Delete Multiple Messages". It allows you to click on each message you want to delete, then you can delete them all in one fell swoop.

    Select all for mass deletion is definitely on the list of things to add.

    A "select all" button that will check ALL the messages at once before clicking the delete button is what I am asking for.

    A "select all" button that will check off all messages/posts/whatever is a very common thing in many programs; I'm really suprised at the negative reaction I am getting for making a simple suggestion.

    I thought it was a great idea and would like to see it too. It does take a lot of extra clicking to select each one versus a single click to delete all.
