PM (Messages) Limit of 6 Per Hour!! Please Change
« on: October 19, 2010, 02:21:00 pm »
What kind of a limit is that?   I send more than 6 messages in 10 minutes sometimes :)

I know it's meant to help curb spammers, but can this be changed to maybe 10? 

 Do you guys get a lot of spammers here that send out PM's?

DarkMantis, I've got a reply for you, but cant send it for another hour - I'm on Time Out from PM's for now  ;D  :D

HI Lsdmeasap
This is something we have been trying to get changed for a while (it used to be 3) ::) It is a ridiculous amount but I am afraid I don't have the power to change it same as many things on the forum. I guess I wil have to wait for your next hour :-\

Haha, ya that is a ridiculous amount for sure!!

Hopefully runn3r will change that sometime soon, I'm sure it was probably put in place sometime in the past because someone was abusing PM's though.

I just thought I'd make a post about it in case I happened to be the only one that had ran into it lately, guess I'm not.   

Ya learn something new everyday, so today I learned this :)

Have a great day!

Do you guys get a lot of spammers here that send out PM's?

Well, I've never been spammed here but I joined Tweak Town less than a week ago and already had a Spammer PM me there. So, maybe the limit placed on this forum isn't so ridiculous!  :P
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

Wow really?

Please forward me the user name so I can ban him!   I've rarely seen reports of PM spammers, but then again people don't report those as often so that makes it harder for use to find those spammers if they only spam via PM.

If it was user "Serendipity" then it was already reported and I banned him yesterday.

Yes we are hoping to be able to have the same sort of options when we finaly get all the finer points sorted out with run3R and then maybe we can change the amount of PMs you can have also ;)

It will be nice once things get all sorted out, no rush though as I know setting up and taking care of a forum takes a lot of time, not to mention all the possible tweaks and changes you can make.

Hi Lsdmeasap

It is now 16, I hope this is OK for you.

Sorry for so long action but I haven't noticed this particular thread. Next time just PM me in such situation. Thanks

(...) I am afraid I don't have the power to change it same as many things on the forum. (...)

You do have, really. I can do many things for you, just PM me. Really  :)
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Hi runn3R

I seem to recall all this happened when you were on holiday a while ago and that is why we couldn't do anything about it. Never mind , done now. Cheers.
