Obviously not, this would defeat the whole goal of this change.



I thought a big part of it was to just delete PMs from abandoned accounts since they were just taking up space.

Quote:

Anno said:
As of today, all the members together have nearly 300,000 stored private messages (PMs).
According to the statistics, around 20%(!!) of those have never been read at all, leading to the conclusion that they are on abandoned accounts.

The HTML in the mail doesn't work(Outlook Express). It looks like this:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
From: DONOTDELETE<br /><br />
Subject: Re: ....<br /><br />
Date: 06/09/03 06:52 PM<br /><br /><br />
censored<body>
</html>

Not much of a problem, just trying to help.

?????

That came out of nowhere.

If those PMs are valuable why wouldn't you save them onto your computer as its always possible that you'd lose ALL of them in a server crash.

I'm in the same boat, I have over 4000 PMs and lots of ones that mean something to me or have info I don't want to lose. So I'll join the weary people who have to save them, but to be honest its a good idea to have them backed up anyhow.

What kind of conspiracy do you think this is anyhow?

Man this shit gets old, always has to be someone who flips out or thinks some evil conspiracy is behind normal decisions made to benefit the operation of a website.

:wtf: :shake:

May my 4,225 saved PMs rest in pieces :tongue2:
I support this decision both for performance and protective issues discussed above.

So you can store a few MB of PMs on your hard drive?

I think this is a silly idea....if your worried about personal info just delete the unread pms...I'm assuming you know which are and aren't unread since you gave a percentage

Why do you assume there is personal info just in the unread PMs?

it says you're not currently recieving PMs dude.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

1. 300 mb of space

2. Security risk

WTF, if people are worried about their security they'll delete their own pm's wtf.

You guys get bored too much

note to MM: You can easily get a free email account at a place like hotmail or mail.com and store your messages there. I had a few hundred to email to myself and they are taking up VERY little space in my mail.com inbox.

That's right, kids! And, after that, we're having a massive PM sale! All PMs will be drastically marked-down to move -- 50% off of the dealer invoice! You heard me right, that's 50% off! So get those PMs ready, because we're on a Mission From God to move those PMs out of here and into your e-mail accounts! :laugh:
