Alex, I’m still getting the hang of some of the controls, notably pm’s. I thought I’d sent you one about pm storage, but I can’t see it so it just shows I’m still on a learning curve.
Pms were used quite a lot in SN, and were stored without limit. It looks as though there’s a 50 message cap here, and that may become an issue for some...can it be raised/removed?
Also, I’ve noticed that my last sent msg seems to show in the outbox, which on most systems would indicate that it hadn’t been sent. Am I mis-reading something?
Other than that, this site seems to be going quite well for many of our regular correspondents, and the change has brought to light a few extra lurkers as well, which is great to see.
Meant to alter that the other day and got sidetracked! I've upped the limit to 9999 which appears to be the max on phpbb so good luck hitting that anytime soon!
If a message is in your outbox then that means it hasn't been read yet, when it moves from there to your sent box then it's been read.

If you scroll down rather than up you should be able to see the previous posts on that thread from the reply box
Thanks Alex, all clear.
Here’s another thought, from time to time on the previous forum we had instances of posters creating multiple identities, sometimes to argue with themselves, other times to be highly critical of others, other times just to be mischievous.
The fact that this was happening was known to moderators, but confidentiality seemed to over-rule any action to at least publicise the fact that posters may have more than one i/d.
My suggestion was that at the least, anyone having a second, or more, i/d’s should have a note inserted into their profile, so that others could see that this was occurring, in the form of “this poster has additional board i/d registered”
My personal standard is that if it doesn’t say Ted on the post, it isn’t Ted behind the post, but others had a different approach, didn’t they pat?
Any thoughts Alex?
