So I notice that this is set to 100 on each user... and that there are no posting limits in the forum topics themself.... So I was wondering if  there was any good reason for a low capacity, and whether it'd be increased or removed altogether. (I prefer removed.)

So... In 7 more messages, my inbox will be full... When it is, I'm thinking about just leaving it that way, and directing people to something like Skype. - I thinking I'm too lazy to actually save/delete the messages each time I get new PMs (Or just simply don't want to.), so I have a feeling if that becomes the only method, it'll probably not work out?

Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

Yeah, could we get this limit raised? A small limit makes a lot of sense for large forums, but... I don't think we're taking up a whole lot of space here.

Wonderful!
So what should it be raised to? (If it isn't removed?) 100*365 = 36500? (For leap years +(100/4), so make that 36525.) (Represents one message for each day, for 100 years.) - Hopefully nothing less than 1000, in any case.

Or should we pick from a number of other options?
-Measure by how much space it takes up? (Similar to how Google works, I believe.)
-Make it an hourly or daily use limit rather than all-time limit.
-Do a Promotions system that allows you to have a larger limit. (AKA: If user has 0 posts, they only have enough for 100 messages, if user has 1 post, they rank up and get 1000 messages. For sake of example.)
-Any other ideas I forgot to list.

Do we even need a PM cap?

Pretty sure it used to be limitless. I can see why there is a limit now (as far as site hosting/costs go I think), but 100 is pretty low given the user base here. I think a good compromise could be to increase it relative to how long an account has existed for and impose a slightly higher cap. Or on post count.

Like, I think I remember a time when I had almost 200 PMs stored up. Now I have under 20, and some of those are due for a good cleanup soon. For a while it was quite annoying to have the cap at 100 before I was ready or able to clean it out.

@KOP: That's  sort of how I feel... Maybe a space limit for everything put together (And not just limited to PMs)... But other than that, the only real thing I can think of being useful is a "Don't post 2 messages in any ~5 second span." as to help avoid auto-posting abuse, or accidental re-submissions... but that would also been done in topic posts. -
In one way, I say that if topics don't have a limit, then why should PMs if they are pretty much the same? (But private.) Except they might be harder to moderate.
(If a limit was used, I'm hoping that 1k or more is enough to never be reached in the situation you do not PM very often, and you don't delete a single PM... except for your own Test/Note messages.)

*Checks email* Well, it does email you the message itself... Which I forgot to consider... Erm...
But the topic still stands...
-As email can have a lot of clutter and such... And it isn't a pretty UI, either. Even worse if BBCode is used, I think.
-A low number may encourage PMs not to be used by certain audiences. (Especially for people not thinking about email, or don't like to use it/go to it when on the forum.)

Hm? It was limitless at one point? That's nice to know.... I do feel like this 100 messages limit has been there for a long time, so it would be nice to know if Atrius has any idea when it was put on. Thanks in advance.

Not sure how or why (I lie, I'm pretty positive I know how and why) but I've changed it so all members have unlimited space.  Enjoy.

+1 - Thanks!

One trivial thing that is interesting to note is that now I can't tell how many messages I have right away. (Thinking "Inbox (93)") That doesn't matter much, though. (Can still do a quick calculation if I'm ever curious. 15* last page number.... to get the upper number.)

(I'll probably end up reading this stuff in the future and thinking they seem more dramatic than I ever intended them to be :( , but hopefully not.)



Edit: Also, congrats on your 500th post!
(Which reminds me, I'm still not half of Salanewt's post count... since I forget which post I had back at GSHC Classic (InvisionFree)... that discusses something about maybe catching up... and then somehow he gains a ton more. - Not that it is of any priority, but I'm still here on the run, though... and haven't given up. :P - Preferably without cheating, of course.)

Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.
