I wasn't sure where to post this so I just posted it here. Anyone else think we should be able to have more than 50 private messages in our inbox? I think we should have 100 or something because if you are selling multiple parts your inbox is always full and you can't accept more messages. Am I the only one that thinks this or are there more people out there?

What, you only have 50?




delete the ones that you sent, you dont need to tell people what you said unless your very forgetful.

Its never really a problem for me. 50 is plenty. Just delete the sent ones and the inbox ones unless you need them.

We're a small community, so 100 PM's seem a little too much.

Keep organized and 50 seems more than enough.

but when your buying and selling I like to keep track of my proof of what they said and when there you can only have 50 and if your buying and selling lots of stuff your pm box is always full every other second.

If you like to keep track of all of your PM's there is an option at the bottom of the page to save them all in different formats.

50 is more than plenty.

Then delete all the sent one's. You dont need to know what you say especially since its usually quoted anyway. Thus, more pm's between more ppl=happy you.

The only reason I am saying this is because many people have pm boxes that are full and there is no way to contact them during a deal. I delete the pms right when the deal is done but It is just so hard to only be able to have 50.

If u think 50 is bad there is a cocker forum that only lets u get 20 pms. i think 50 is enough considering we dont have that many very active members.

Thats what happens when you play with cockers.... We don't have very many active members but like what I said before. When you are doing a few deals at a time it fills up very quickly.

50 is not plenty. This is the ONLY forum I'm a part of that has that few messages allowed and its stupid. You send 5 messages to one person regarding a deal, and get 5 more back and you've just used a fifth of your available space, in possibly a ten minute period of time. If you're selling multiple items, you're gonna go over 50 in a matter of days.

The frustrating part is trying to send someone a message and their box is full. It could be days before they make room, and by then you might miss out on what you are PMing them for.

If your doing a few deals, lets say 5 at a time.

with those 5 different sales, you can have 10 different PM's from each person.
If people quote eachother anyways, 10 is like way in the last topic.

Buyer: Hi I want the ____ your selling, how much for it?
Seller: I would like 20 dollars shipped for it, but its OBO
Buyer: How about 15 shipped? I have money in paypal or can send a MO out tomorrow, whats your address?
Seller: 15 is too low, how about 15 and you pay shipping?
Buyer: Ok thats good, Can i get your Address to send the MO out tomorrow?
Seller: My Address is 777 Lucky Ave Las Vegas, Navada. Ill let you know when I get the MO
Buyer: Sounds good.

That is basically what a transaction is. thats 4 messages that you have, and that deal is done. Now whats the whole first offer thing you dont need at all, the only real thing you need to save is the last one or two.
If you keep 2, that means you would have to sell 25 different items for your PM box to be full. Thats alot of parts.

They aren't going to up you amount of pm's you guys can have in your box so really there is no point to this thread. It has been discussed many times before. Like D said you can download as many messages you want to your computer by using the tool at the bottom of the pm page. If I were you I'd use that.

Plus if the mods who get tons of PM's can manage our mail boxes then you all should be able to as well.
