Personal Message Capacity??
« on: May 01, 2018, 10:45:08 AM »
My Personal Messages are showing "100% Capacity" but there is only one message in my mailbox. Does anyone know how to fix that? I can't find a setting or preference.

Thanks!

There are several features to personal messages that the forum software has in place that are based on seniority and onboard participation. They are necessary to protect members from someone registering and having an unlimited ability to privately contact members without having established themselves in the community.

We do not encourage people to communicate off the boards.  If you to do, that's fine, but not appropriate to mention on the open boards.  Think of it this way - your discussion may help an infinite number of people who see the forum but do not register. When we keep things on the open board it provides us and others a broader focus rather than drawing support from a chosen few.

I hope this helps!
