New Limits Notice

Early last year I mentioned that I was planning on adding in new limits to guestbook sizes and the number of Private Messages you can store, these will finally start to go into effect from April 1st. Here are the details:

Guestbooks will have a maximum number of posts, that number will be 500. This limit will function simply by new posts pushing out old ones when your guestbook reaches the maximum, there is no micro management required. Of course you will still be able to delete individual messages as well as wipe out the entire lot in one go if you want to.

The Private Messaging function will too be given a new limit, you will be able to store up to 500 PMs in your inbox and you will only be able to see your last 100 sent messages. If your inbox is full you will stop receiving new PMs until you reduce the number to below the limit again. A counter will appear in your inbox from today but the actual restrictions will not take effect until April 1st, meaning that for the moment you can still use the PM system as normal even if you are way over 500.

To help manage this a new feature for PMs goes live today that lets you "bookmark" a message which will then be viewable in the Bookmarks folder, these messages will still count towards your inbox limit but are protected from accidental deletion. To delete a bookmarked message you must first unbookmark it. This feature can also be used to protect individual sent messages from being removed, again these saved messages will still count as part of your 100 limit but will not be automatically deleted like the other sent messages. There is also a new delete button that can clear out your entire inbox (except bookmarked messages).

If you are at or above the 500 PM limit on April 1st you will simply be unable to receive new messages, but if you are still above it on the 1st of May your inbox will be reduced to the newest 500 messages. Sent messages will be truncated on April 1st. The process will of course take into account any bookmarks you've made when doing so.

This seems like a swell idea, but I can't help but feel like 500 PM messages being the maximum is a bit too small.

Maybe it's just me getting a bunch of PMs on a regular basis, but I find it rather inconvenient to have to delete pages full of PMs every other day just to avoid hitting 500.

I just read it and I think it's a good idea.But 500 for public posts is too little.

I think the 500 limit is fine, but that's probably because I don't talk to as many people and won't hit 500 as fast.

I love the new PM features. Now I can actually get rid of the 365+ pages of PMs that I still have since I was a red sparx. Thanks dark!

I think this is as or perhaps more later dark52 increase the storage capacity of the messaging and is related to it.

Allow me to explain the rules you have just broken. 1) these posts are off topic 2)You posted 3 times in a row. Don't do it again if you want to stay on this site.

on topic: The limits aren't much of a problem for me as I don't use the gb or pm really often.
