    Still can’t see my (allegedly) six unread messages. And can change my view from “all ” to “unread” messages.

    My suspicion is it’s a glitch. I’ve sent you a message to see if that is visible to you.

    I think there are 72 messages in my inbox if that matters

    Reaching the max. no of messages would, I think, prevent new messages from reaching you. Other message systems notify the sender that a recipient’s mailbox is full.

    @ All

    If anyone is trying to PM walto, try resending.

    Going below 50 helped me send new PMs

  3. I got an announcement Dec 14 asking for a response, but I see no mechanism for making a response.

  4. J-Mac,
    Sure. I didn’t realise that others were reaching and surpassing the 50 messages limit. The potential problem (and this applies to the media files that folks upload) is they may build up in the database to exceed our allotted bandwidth, otherwise I’d lift the limit entirely.

    TLDR:
    delete your old unwanted messages and media files, folks!

  5. walto,

    No problem. Oddly the system wouldn’t allow me to reply directly to your PM to which I would have replied “seems best!” 🙂

    Ah, that was a test announcement from me after reinstalling. It just asks for a reply to confirm it was working. Another glitch to mention to the plugin author.

    ETA on checking, there is no reply option to announcements. I must remember in future to identify myself as sender and mention those wishing to reply need to send those replies via a new PM.

  11. Can I propose a rule that titles be restricted to (say) 10 words?*** Waffly titles, and those pursuing half the argument before the post has even begun, make the sidebar a bit messy.

    *** Or fewer. My “On Why I Think Excessively Long Titles Are Best Avoided” could use an edit.

    It would be nice if people would practice that. But, human nature being what it is, they won’t.

    Look closely at the most recent thread. The short first paragraph was originally part of the title, but I split it off.

  13. Mods should probably remove the inappropriate comments or take down the poll.
    It was a bad idea…

    Thanks, Jmac
