    We all enjoy the fellowship and discussion here and of course it takes money to keep it going.
    I also find it difficult managing all of my private messages with an allowance of only 50. Sometimes I miss a message because my box is full.

    My idea is to charge $10 via PayPal to add a storage of 500 PMs ($20 for 1000 etc)
    So that the heavy users may contribute while keeping the basics free just as we know it.

    Anyone else have to delete PMs that you would rather keep?

    That's a great idea, Dale. Especially for those who have a lot of PM traffic.

    Sounds like you are on the PM "speedway". Me....I am on the PM horse and buggy. Ha! :laugh:

    Delete the messages. They are not that important.

    Or copy them to a word file.

    I would donate if it's needed to keep the board witnessing but I have only received a few PM's.

    They aren't important to YOU but they may be important to the person they belong to. :)

    Probably because of a three buck 'drop', and $.50 per minute typing time!

    Ya' wanna explain the inside joke to the rest of the BB for yourself, as well as Salty and me? :) :thumbsup:

    Transfer them to a folder elsewhere on your computer. That's what I do (if they're important enough to save).

    The BB doesn't need money. It now has some very large advertising sponsors.

    The PM's are set at 50 because no one should need more room than that - if the ones you want to keep are copied to another folder...

    This being the case, I don't mind taking your ten dollars and taking care of your p.m.'s. I have a file labeled 13. :D

    I guess I shouldn't but I do.
    If there is no monetary concerns such as additional storage space, why not allow more PMs as some do?
    One that I go to has a 500 limit.

    I keep all of my email and I would like to keep all PMs if possible.
    And if my hard drive fails, I like it all to be online so that I don't lose anything.
