    A request to Admins, can we please if possible have a bigger PM limit?? pm's don't hold hardly any space at all on the hosting server.

    I like to keep a record of all my pm's for future reference so I can't delete any.

    Actually, we just raised the limit back in February...

    If people want to keep all their PMs, then technically no limit would ever be enough for many as they get and send more messages. However, as a way to address this issue, there are three export options available in the forum software that allow members to download all their PMs to files in different formats.

    When in the main private message screen, the options are listed as links in the lower right corner of the screen. (See image below. The links support XML, CSV and TXT file formats.)

    While I do have a higher limit than 100 myself, and conduct much of the forum business via PM, I have to export and delete my PMs every few weeks to keep from filling up.

    Move'em to online storage if you're worried about accidental deletion, the admins have been generous enough to extend our previous limit.
