teach I realize that most of you will do almost anything to help me to keep everything running smoothly on the forum, and for that reason you worry about getting too many PMs in your mailboxes and therefore delete single reply messages so they don't build up. If I were to ask the question "do you have more than 100 friends that you PM with" I'd venture to guess that there are no more than 3! My options are set so that you can reply to your own replies without a response, and I'm pretty sure it is set for unlimited replies to a PM, so if you only chat with 6 or 20 other folks, you'd have a constant 6 or 20 PMs in your mail box plus a couple of "save" PMs that you can now send to yourself. Deleting single reply PM, and sending another later has the effect of loading up certain mailboxes, of people who are afraid to delete til it gets critical because she gets unlimited pms..... whos name I won't mention.... I think you'll like the "single person, one looooooong PM" method, and it would work well as far as server load... If you don't like doing it that way, feel free to do whatever feels best for you without another thought.
I hope that all made sense... zoink

OK--so I thought I had it figured & now i am not sure---so here I go---

if i have a PM to Jiffy about say a seed swap--if i keep replying to each reply i get in that subject thread it is still considered as 1 PM--right???
BUT if i start a brand new message each time then my number of PM's continue to grow--am i right or confused??/

you got it. so, if we are pm'ing, it's better to pm on a single thread (even if the topic has changed) than to start multiple new pm's.

I've been doing this for a few of my PM's but I had a bunch that hadn't been used in over a month, so just the other day I deleted ALL of those! ...maybe I should have kept them? But I didn't want to have a cluttered room...ya know? Well, I didn't want my online room to be cluttered!! LOL....you should see my real room! Oy!

You take such good care of this site and of us, Bill--Once again--Thanks so much! :wink:

I will say, even though I got what you ment, this did make me think to look at my PM box & check the # of messages there---and that is a good thing--

I love the idea that I can have long running pm's with each of my friends and even groups of friends right? You can have several people in one string now can't you?
