Didn't say they didn't exist before the 90s! They were just horribly inefficient, dependent upon the sneakernet.

Default Re: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING PMs!

Give the users an option to have their oldest PMs drop off the bottom of the list. Then a new PM replaces the oldest PM, once they have 100.

It removes the need for maintenance labor from users (which is virtually guaranteed not to happen 100% of the time). And it could be set as a default for new accounts to minimize the problem.

Two options like so:
+ Replace oldest PM when inbox is full (100 PMs)
+ Refuse delivery when inbox is full (100 PMs)

Some users would prefer to maintain their own, though, so it's probably good to allow personal control of trashing for those who want to.

How many times can you read a PM? For goodness sake, copy the thing to a txt file and save it on your own computer if you want to keep it for prosperity's sake!!! All PM's should be dropped when a certain amount is given (say 100 PM's) and new ones come in. The oldest is deleted and all new ones take their place. It's a simple concept, "Move it, OR lose it"

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

how about get rid of it completely and just have a form that would directly email users and get it off the server completely.

Limiting the size of a PM box on a forum is a good thing.
