20

The inbox limit is a bit tight at 75 messages. The www.boatmad.com forum allows 150 messages

Yes, but you're much chattier over here...

20 - a mere bagatelle to a man of your means. And it will help JK maintain his little fleet and cover his medical expenses

Maybe I should copy some other forums and only allow paid up subscribers to use the PM system at all!

there's enough tosh gets posted in public unnecessarily without that! Could you add a filter so "You have a PM" is not allowed on the forum!

Any other views?

I'd agree to getting something in return for membership to encourage subscription... Ribnet flag/tshirt etc.

But pms can be useful sometimes to tell a member something that the world shouldn't see for important reasons. Safety for example.

If someone posts something like a picture or phone number not realizing the implications.

Would you still be able to send emails to members? If so everyone would just do that instead.

If not then the few of us paid up members won't be able to communicate with the unwashed so there wouldn't be as much point to us continuing to pay.

lose lose situation I think...
