    Hey guys, one of the things giving me a hard time is the size of the private message table in the database. Essentially, that means we have a lot of guys with a ton of private messages.

    If you have a ton of old private messages that you don't have a use for, do me a favor and delete them...

    Obviously, don't feel obligated. I realize that many of these old private messages are saved for a reason.

    Thanks,

    R>

    Does your PM Box smell like Cat piss, have ceiling high stacks of News papers & full of 10,000 empty Country Crock containers with mismatched Kool Whip lids?

    And don't forget the "sent" PM's. I will get to deleting them this week, I think that I only 300-ish?

    No. Not at all... The idea is to protect those old posts and photos... They don't hurt us at all.
