Default Inbox Limit

Hey,

Could we get a bigger inbox for private messages? I'm having to empty mine out constantly, and it makes it impossible to save important messages because you just run out of room. 50 is wayyyyyy too small in my opinion. Most forums allow for 500, 1000, or unlimited. The amount of server space they take up is absolutely minuscule. I'd really appreciate if it could be looked into.

Thanks,
Drake

P.S. Yes I'm that popular that I get so many PM's.

You are a busy guy and, obviously, a valuable PT contributor.

I doubt your the first one to request this, probably won't be the first one to be denied either.
From what I've picked up over the years, more inbox space is a mod perk. Has something to do with the bacon trade I think.


Maybe you could trade some of your album space for some messaging space

One picture in an album probably takes up more space than 1,000 PM's :P

Can I be a mod then?

It's because of all those extra vowels you people use up there when you spell "colour".
