That's good to know. I assumed it meant it was read too. At least it lets you know the other person has logged in and is either ignoring it or missed it. I don't like the email method.

Yeah, many cases where the recipient has genuinely not read it.

Is there something funky going on with the forum? I did get some sql errors a few times. Also i noticed some categories moving about, and now i see a "WONDERBOY ORIGINAL" thread in both arcade games and game hardware q&a at the same time?

I'd say the Wonderboy thread was just moved to the q&a section as it relates to it and rossyra said he had accidentally moved stuff last week.

Is it possible to change the attachments to full quality inline?

Go in to your MP inbox, folder settings and activate the setting for “If folder full, delete oldest messages”

That will just delete the messages automatically.

How about this instead: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... _settings/

MAX PRIVATE MESSAGES PER BOX: This is the maximum number of private messages your users can have in each of their folders.

I think, comparatively speaking, 200 messages is pretty generous. Some forums have a 50 or fewer limit.

Perhaps if you can make a compelling case why it should be increased beyond 'I have to delete stuff' we can openly discuss it.

It's cool, reading the admin documentation that I linked, I discovered that I can make a new folder called "Old Inbox", move all 200 messages in there, and have room for 200 new messages in my inbox again. :awe:

Yeah I genuinely don't know how PHPBB came up with their MP quota system.

For more, be an Admin :)

I've noticed a lot of posts disappearing (and bans appearing) lately. I'm not exactly using any wording that anyone else isn't using, so if anyone has a problem with me it would be handier to just send me a MP instead of random ninja'ing deletes and bans.

I believe your use of 6k & 6000 is annoying to some.

You'd think it wouldn't be too hard to just say that instead of random bans and deleting posts all over and making it into some weird guessing-game.
What's next, grail / 700 bans? The place is plastered with references to that. It's just a different number.
