Violating the Private Message limit

([msg=17610]see Violating the Private Message limit[/msg])

I just thought this was a little funny, so I decided to post it. Apparently, due to the recent decision to lower the amount of PM space, I managed to get above the maximum allowed messages in my inbox. I also may have one more folder than I am supposed to (the news post says 2 folders. I am unsure if that means Inbox+Folder or, Inbox+Folder+Folder).

Regardless, seeing the 125% full message made me laugh. Hopefully I can be active enough to get the limit increase and get back below 100% d:

I had 150% when it came out. Had to delete them even though I didnt want to. Id say wont get any new pm if you dont delete them.
Im off, last year of school and all, I had something longer but char limit fucked that up. So yeah, had a good run here. Thanks for the memories. Thanks to the staff and users.

Best regards, your posting whore,

This phpBB install (maybe all?) seems to have a sort of message queuing system, where it holds the messages in a temporary area, and to be able to read them, you have to delete the ones in your inbox. They are not lost though. You're able to configure it to deny them or queue them.. I guess it's a good way to get people to delete their messages ("You can't read your new ones until you get rid of your old ones")

Glad I'm not the only one that noticed it haha (and, good to still see you around goc)

Im always here, not even personal things can stop me on the forums, sometimes.
Im glad to here about others in the same boat, although I would like to see an increase in size for the mail we can get.

for all of you the limit should have been increased. If it wasn't please let me know (if you have > 50 posts).

Hmm... I wasn't aware of the actual conditions required for the increase, but according to the one News topic, it looks like it should have gone into effect. I still have a limit of 4 messages/box though. Didn't meant to turn this into a bug report topic, hehe d: Please let me know if you need any more details or if I should file in Bug Reports. Thanks!
