Hi everyone,
just wondering why we are only allowed 2 messages in our mailbox. never had a forum limit me to 2 messages. how do i go about getting more. ic ant even send someone a message without deleting it right afterwards because the person cant reply to me since my mailbox is full.
thanks

Delete your inbox and outbox messages as soon as you read them and work that way until you've been a member long enough and with enough posts/replies for the system to validate your authenticity. Then your PM load will change to another max number of messages - with a time-out period in between messages - then after more time you will get to few or no restrictions. MOST of CF information transfer is done in open forum - public posts and threads - except for private names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses - NEVER post those in public forum.

Your lucky you have any. When I started, I don't think I had any PMs. Though i only had to post 10 times before I was given an allowance to PM. Now I believe it's 20 or 25 postings.

But considering that there are spammers who are signing up and just clogs the forums with complete spam. Or hi jack threads. I am glad there is a limit of PMs. Cus if there wasn't, I'm sure we'll be receive spam from these spammers.
