PM System Here Stinks!

by mobiusclimber Thu Aug 20, 2020 8:59 pm

Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this or if I've brought this up already in the past but GOOD LORD does the PM system suck butts for fun. Why allow check marks next to messages if you can do next to nothing once they have a check mark? Why can't you delete multiple messages at a time, especially considering there's a message limit? There are far too many steps to deleting messages when you just want to read a new message but your inbox is full. Go into each individual message, choose the trash can icon, wait for the next page to load, click the yes button, wait for the next page to load, click "go back to the folder you came from" to do it all over again for the next message! Why??? I just want to clean out my inbox! :lol:

Pretty sure there's a "mark all" and "delete marked" selections at the bottom of the inbox.

You can have the system auto delete the oldest message so you can receive new messages without intervention.

Goto Private Messages and look on the left pane, click on "rules, folders & settings." Then scroll to the bottom where it says "if folder is full" and choose your option.

I feel like it used to be a lot better until the site was "updated."

Naw, PM management has always been a pain.

WOW! Thank you, but WOW! There's no indication that these are drop down menus. They look like buttons. I never would have guessed that there was a second function hiding there.

Use Glossy Blue. It's really obvious with that theme.
