    Default Hard Limit

    Is it possible to get an upgrade for private message boxes so our boxes can hold more than 100 messages? That seems arbitrary.

    I imagine that it's likely a limit to ensure that there isn't too much storage allocated to messages that aren't being used anymore. Because every limit increase is that much more data potentially hanging around in every account. So, I doubt that there'll be an increase because of that. There are a lot of accounts.

    Possible, yes. The mods have a significantly higher limit. The mods being willing to do it for you, however, is much dicier.

    The Mod on the Silver Mountain: It is possible, yes. The only way I know of is by becoming a moderator.

    For a very good reason - every warning and infraction is its own separate PM, along with any responses we get from them (everything from "that's a stupid rule and you're stupid for enforcing it" to "sorry"), including bans for all the spam accounts. Just this morning I discovered I had hit the limit, and I clear my boxes out fairly regularly.

    I don't know about significantly higher. But if you want to preserve a large number of PMs, you'll have to do what I do: regularly back up your PMs and then delete them. The per poster allotment seems unlikely to change and I can't imagine we'd do any individual exceptions.
