Re: Why not just fix the site?

Other forums I’m at have PM limits of multiple thousand. Can we increase our limit here?

Anyone else getting timeouts? It is happening in random subforums here, like TV Talk and Video Game Talk.

Yeah, I've been getting timeouts, the occasional 'database error' message, and those CloudFlare pages too.

Re: Why not just fix the site?

I use an iphone and the mobile version of the site works fine on that.

As to changing the name, it'd sort of destroy the veteran-status of the site as was already explained. Same reason stores named ------ Records never dropped the "Records" from their name, even if that's not the main thing they sell anymore.

Sorry this slipped through the cracks. Regular users should have a PM limit of 2,000 now.

Premium is still a thing? Huh. I paid for a few years, then stopped when no improvements were actually being made at the time. Double-

Re: Why not just fix the site?

So I've been on this sites for years and I think I've only received a handful - does that mean I'm lame?

Re: Why not just fix the site?

Yes, the rest of us are talking about you.



If you're not buying/selling/trading anything on the board or playing/running Sheep games, you probably don't have much use for PM's. That's mainly the kind of thing mine is filled with.

OK guys, after working some stuff out, Premium users should now have 1,000 messages and everyone else should have 400.
