Best to keep saved private messages at a minimum??
12/07/04 at 03:43:46
 
The recent spring cleaning of NPC made me wonder whether it's best to delete all but the most essential PM's??  I currently have 24 messages in my inbox and an unknown quantity in the outbox: how much server space would be freed up if everyone did his own spring cleaning??

I was looking at suggesting that a while ago but then I looked at my own outbox and this discussion software makes it a pain in the butt to delete your outbox!  You have to do each and every one on it's own... grr...  
 
Anyway, it would be awesome if people wanted to take the time to do this but since I don't even want to do it to my own outbox I can't expect you all to do it.  
 
Maybe at the very least look at some of the bigger messages and delete those.  I looked at everyone's mailbox sizes and there are only a few that are really big, including myself and Murph Smiley

There is a button which says "Empty Outbox" so if you want to delete the entire outbox, that's easy.  If you only want to save a few, then I think you have to do it one at a time.

My problem is that Ian keeps PM'ing me large files of pornography--Large-breasted English women with the faces of Queen Victoria and ears of Prince Charles. I'm both aroused and repulsed at the same time. Smiley

Let me know if it's the face or the ears that do it for you and I can modify my output to be more message board frugal.

Alright, I got the hint and deleted all 700 of my PM's
In fact it was fun, would you like me to do a little more cleaning for you. I know just where I can start

OK, following Murph's lead, I just totally cleaned out my Inbox.
 
First I deleted the posts I didn't want and then I just highlighted and cut and pasted the rest into MS Word. It doesn't look that pretty but it's effective.
 
Now please, someone send me a PM. It looks pathetic to have zero messsages.

Rob,
this was just a scheme that Jen & I cooked up to trick Murph into cleaning out his mailbox. Cheesy
