PM monthly paring

by Chip » Aug 24th, '11, 14:59

FYI, we will be cleaning PM house once a month. :shock:

During the month you have unlimited PMs in each of your PM folders. However beginning September 1st, and every 1st day of the month thereafter, PM storage will be pared back to 100 PMs per folder.

So anything you want to keep in excess of 100 PMs, be sure to move it elsewhere before the 1st of each month or you may lose PMs. :idea: :mrgreen:

Thanks,
Chip

Chip -- thanks for the warning!

Even though we have the ability to create and store messages in sub-folders, the 100 message limit is our personal combined total, correct?

Do PMs in the 'sent' folder count toward this number?

Thanks!

No, you have 100 per folder. :mrgreen:

I think I have the forum set for 8 "optional" folders ... ones you create.

Hey Chip,

I was just trying to move stuff this evening to clear space... and I just noticed that I don't have any sort of "go" button to move or even delete stuff.

Well, here's a picture, because it's just weird:

The "Go" button that you see is for the CSV exporting, not for the menu on the right.

I tried zooming in with my browser to see if I could "see behind" the tan banner on the right... but when I do, all I see is actually a truncated pull-down menu. Weird i know.

Maybe it's just a FireFox issue, but thought I'd bring it up.... very odd!

Drax
can you see the 'go' button between the 2 drop down boxes currently showing 'export as csv' and 'mark/unmark as important'

there is another one just after
select a post {or more if it works} to delete
try changing 'mark/unmark as important' to 'delete marked'

then press the right tab key and press enter

hopefully that will work

Thanks, HM! I'll try the tab method when I get home, that makes sense.

I happened to check at work, where we use the interminably old IE7 (we just upgraded last year from version 6!), and it displayed everything correctly, so I can see the other 'Go' button.

So I guess it's just a FireFox issue.

Due to the extremely slow PM loading the last few days, I am extending this deadline a few days ... til the end of the weekend. Likely Sunday night Eastern USA time.

Remember, you can create folders in order to keep more of your PMs, but each folder can only have 100 PMs. I believe you can create 8 optional folders currently.

Thanks,
Chip

OK, I am going to move on this on January 31, 2012. I am giving you time to delete PMs you do not need to keep so important ones will not be deleted automatically.

Also, remember you are able to create up to 8 optional folders that may each contain up to 100 PMs. You can move PMs from your inbox and sent to these folders.

I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but trying to deal with some problems by process of elimination.

I will lift the limit on February 1st. I will then place the limit on the last day of each month, and lift the limit on the first day of each month. This will allow you to have more than 100 PMs per file during the month.

Again, thank you for understanding,
Chip

Please read my last post. Basically it will be unlimited during the month, and then pared on the last day of each month ... that is the plan for right now.
