3 PMs an Hour Increased Please
« on: March 05, 2014, 04:53:16 PM »
I dig this site, I love it.


What would it take to get this community the ability to send more than 3 personal messages per hour?


I mean I could see how it could be spammed, but we have a setting to not receive messages from those who we ignore.

What's the haps? If someone wants to talk in a personal message other than in the chat room, it's hard to get a fluid supporting conversation within 3 messages.... especially if you've sent one to someone else earlier... or two to some other people... That'd only leave you with one shot in the chamber to reach out to someone.

Could we up it to maybe.... infinite?

What's a guy gotta do? I'll do it.


Much Thanks.


Potatoes.

Always been 3 an hour. Bit annoying if you write a lot of private messages. But I seriously can't see it been made to the point were you could write as many as you want. I think I would begin by pushing for 5 an hour. Take it from there. All the years I have been here and before my time it has always been 3.

Wow!  What's the reason for the limit of 3 an hour?  I'm a member on two other forums and they don't have a limit.  I'm.not criticizing, just curious.

Only the Boss Man can answer that question. I assume to stop people flooding the place with private messages. More members you have the more it might slow a forum down. No idea really.

But who'd it hurt? better than flooding the forum with a conversation of back and forth replies... which jams up the "Recent Posts" at the bottom of the board.

I mean when chat went down, that's all that was read because we were basically chatting in there, you couldn't hardly see anybody's topics that were posted other than ours... you could click on "Show Unread Posts" at the top but still, it isn't as live feeded as the bottom section of the board under the most recent replies. lol

Thanks for the input.

Maybe run a poll on the forum and ask members what they would accept as the right amount of PMs per hour. The more people who answer in the poll the more it might be noticed. In this thread only 3 of us have posted. That is not going to cause any change at all. Need to get as many people as you can behind you on this one. Who knows what will happen then.

I don't use the forum to PM much, but i can see how it would be beneficial to raise the limit. For instance, i've spoken to a few people who find the chat room overwhelming because they suffer with social anxiety, and then there are the times when chat isn't up and working, which thankfully isn't often.

Nr. 5 here  :action-smiley-065:. Lol.

I agree with Cuchculan. Perhaps making a poll on it would bring more attention to the topic.
Since I've experienced  similar 'problems' as Potatoes when the chat was down, namely people needed to talk and 3 pms/hour was not enough to talk to a single person, I will post this for other moderators and GG to see. Let's see where it goes.

i agree more pms as 3 is hell.

also to deal with chat being down we should have pinned bit to forum as a back up that get cleaned each time chat gets back online so less hassle of multi threads on chat being down?
