I was thinking of trimming down my PMs, which are now approaching 100.  Just in case, I want to know the max limit Elliquiy can hold before my account can't accept any more.

There's no PM limit. I have over 8K, myself. >_>

Actually, BeMi hit the limit - and then Vekseid upped it.  It used to be 32767, at which point it stopped incrementing the number, but you still got the PMs.

It goes without saying that regular pruning is essential as the numbers climb up. ;)

I'm sitting on over 10k.  Pruning at this point would take time I don't have.

Sometimes it's less a matter of pruning and more a matter of strategic amputation.  'These messages are more than five years old...  Ah... nope.

I just about spat soda all over my screen, Oniya! Imagine if that's how we did actual amputations?

"Oh, your leg is five years old at this point. Guess we'll have to get rid of that one and get you the latest model."

I just had to change the database column storing the number because two people had reached signed 16-bit maxint (32767). A lot of other people would have reached that number if they didn't prune their pms.

A lot of people RP in their PMs. Having an unlimited amount of space available make sense.

Judging by Veks' code written in another thread, changing the column to an int(eger) as opposed to a small int means it should now allow 2147483647 messages.

(I've just spent 5 months in a classroom learning about this stuff, so I can't resist the temptation to answer).
