My idea would be this:

Subscribers: Infinite PMs
--Infinite PMs
--40 PMs a day
--20 PMs a day
0--10 PMs a day only to mutual friends
--5 PMs to mutual friends
--No PMs
--No access to PM section


I am leaving Braingle. I'll get on occasionally, but not very much.

Jake already added a limit(10 a day for people that don't meet criteria)....by any chance could this be un-stickied?

Well then.

Sounds good but I think no karma should be 10 PM's but not just mutual friends

But what about people who have conversations? On quite a few days I'll legitimately go over 50 because me and one person are chatting. And with multiple conversations, it just gets higher and higher.
Plus modding games would quickly use messages.
Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I've 'refreshed' my whole outbox in one day without spamming.....


You can do that in chat

Beyonce, this was already solved.

I don't think so.

As Beyonce said, people with nothing should be able to send 10 PMs to anybody.


With kids you spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 15 years telling them to sit down and be quiet.

I don't really know . . . I voted for 30 per day, because sometimes I've had a private conversation with someone and it could go on and on and on.

Probably in case somebody else thinks of the idea. It's pretty easy for any such person to clearly see that there is already a resolution.

A sticky is a thread which stays at the top of the forum board. So it's 'stuck' there, hence the name.

I don't think there should be a PM limit. Say you are moderating a themed TWG or WTB game, and you need to converse with players via PM, then having a limit would restrict you. The karma idea might be a good one, though.

Is there really that much of a problem with spamming? I certainly don't have that problem. If someone PMs you incessantly just foe list them. Why should those who aren't breaking the rules be punished for those who are? Plus some werewolf games etc need to be able to PM a lot.



Yeah. I don't think I've ever got spammed, and I've been here for a few years. If someone spams you, you just foe list them. I don't see the need for a PM cap. And there could be some system that if 1 person was foe listed enough it would be brought to the attention of the Moderators, and they can check if the person is spamming or what he/she is doing to get foe listed. If you put the foes and friends lists in a more noticable place, they'll get used more. So, there's no real reason to have a PM cap, unless you have negative Karma points, in which case there could be a smaller limit to the amount of times you have to get foe listed before the mods get alerted, and vise versa for high karma people.


I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior. If you do too, copy and paste this into your signature. P.m. me the word "clicky" and I will add 100 clicks to my click the button total. I'm in 52nd place!

I reckon there should be caps depending on how many of which colour karma arrows they have....

3 Good Karma - Infinite
2 Good Karma - 75 per day
1 Good Karma - 50 per day
0 Karma - 25 per day
1 Bad Karma - 10 per day
2 Bad Karma - 5 per day
3 Bad Karma - 0 per day

I reckon those are fair as the people with 3 good karma arrows deserve them and the people with bad karma deserve them.
