    On behalf of Nifty and the Mods -

    Just a reminder to keep your PM Inbox cleaned out, and down to a minimum size. When someone wants to send you a PM, and your Inbox is full, the system will not send the message.

    You know who you are. [​IMG]


    Edited to add - Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this.

    I'll see if we can send out a friendly reminder via email to all the members that have full inboxes. Might take a bit of programming, but may be worth it.

    here is a possibly dumb question, but is there an easier way to delete a message in the box. it is kind of a frustrating system. and slow.

    not complaining, just wondering.

    "I'll see if we can send out a friendly reminder via email to all the members that have full inboxes. Might take a bit of programming, but may be worth it."

    Maybe have an automatic reminder to everyone with an Inbox that's over, say, 80?

    When you go to your mailbox scroll all the way down to the bottom, and on the left is a button that says, "Delete Multiple Messages". Click it then check the messages you want to delete. You get one confirmation screen, then you hit delete.
