I have a question about private messages
« on: May 15, 2006, 10:11:27 PM »
I tend to clean up my PM inbox fairly often, but I like to hang on to some threads, particularly ones that have to due with plotting and such.  My question is, am I causing an undue burden on storage space by keeping these?  Or do PMs take up an insignificant amount of space?  There are just so many messages here on the actual boards that I have wondered about this.  Thanks!

I don't know the answer to your question, but I've found a better way to keep track of all that is to go to the Elluiki button just up top of here and below the search bar and create a page there.  Then place all the links and addresses there in an easy-to-access place and delete all those pesky pms.  I hope this will help if your question can't be answered to your satisfaction.  :)

Hmmm... I haven't really looked at Elluiki much yet.  I'll have to check that out.  Thanks for the tip, Purple. :)

There is also, the option of cutting and pasting all of your links onto one PM and sending it back to yourself?

That's probably a simpler idea for me actually.  Thanks Elvi, and for moving the topic, I was not quite sure where it should go.

Well, being one of those none technical sorts, I always think of the simplest solution...*smiles*

Or you can use a program like microsoft word to keep track of all the links. That is nice and simple and should be easy to keep track of.

Could be wrong, but I don't think she was even talking about any game links.. more about back-and-forth PMs on plot ideas and discussions about what might happen. And she wants to know how many PMs we can safely hang on to without making the admin mad :)

Just had to cull my inbox today too, I know how it feels *woeful sigh*
