  • 1000 character PM limit

    I realise this topic has been discussed by the mods but please....can we have this ridiculous 1000 character limit on PMs increased somewhat.
    It won't make any noticeable difference to database and file server loads (trust me, I own multiple vBulletin forums and do all the server and MySql configuration and admin on them). All it does is cause frustrations when replying to someone's PM. Nine times out of ten, I can't reply with the original quote and that is very frustrating!!

                  I rarely PM unless it's a reply. When I do - it's as concise as possible, dropping unnessary words, with just reasonable abbreviation, and character replacement where possible ("&" instead of "and", etc).

                  If the message hits almost 1000 characters and I need more, I just type "continued..." and start a second message. Of course, you're limited to 70 messages at a time - but why be a "PM pack rat "?

                    Yes same here SDG. We have definitely discussed it (as we discuss all requests/complaints). We do our best to make this site better and better, but there are some places where we simply can't move up or down. I not saying that this is one - but it might be.
                    And we appreciate suggestions, just please understand that there are places that no amount of debate will change.
