I don’t know about you guys but my Personal Message thingy fills up really quick, and at first I was having to go back through like 20 pages of inbox/sent stuff to selectively prune things out to make space, because some of it I either want to keep because it taught me something, or because it’s stuff that people ask me about a lot that I can copy-paste for someone else etc., also it helps me keep track of who I speak to, and about what.
Anyway yesterday I realised, if I go back to the oldest page shown, in my case it seemed to be 19, saved that page as a complete web-page, with a number (I indexed them starting at “001” for the oldest page, which had greetings from a few people and some nice messages) and then deleted that by selecting the box at the top to take out all those messages, it would then show page 18 as the final page, so I repeated the process - naming that “002” etc.
I saved those into one folder on my computer, and my sent PM Pages into a seperate folder, so they’re now webpages in my hard-drive I can search to find stuff.
Apologies if this is a little off-beat (or just really bloody obvious to everyone but me so far!) but someone just said to me in a PM their inbox was getting pretty full, which made me think others here might have the same issue, and this way you don’t have to lose things - and it’s quick.
It works so well because below the list of PMs on each page, the full messages are saved, which is great. Oh, and you can auto-select to save all Sent messages by clicking on Change Settings, which is under Preferences.
Just sharing fwiw, and I’m now annoyed I ever deleted anything, because I’ve had some really cool PMs since I joined! :o)
