Not sure if you guys saw this - http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB40&Number=4685976&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

Quote :
Private Messages - When importing the private messages into VBulletin we found out that EVERY PM you've sent, whether you opted to keep it or not, is placed in your Sent Mail box. This means that a large percentage of users are going to be over their PM quota and won't be able to send or receive messages. We recommend you immediately download your PMs (an option in VB) and clean out your sent items box.

The new board will have a 250 message limit which considering RS had no limit before will be a pretty shitty change to get used to but unless people speak up about it and offer suggestions on the thread it won't change.

Make sure you download your current messages for your own records before the update as you risk losing a bundle of interesting/important messages.

Try 2k+ Rolling Eyes

I don't mind so much backing up my old messages but one thing I always liked about RS is that the messages were always there, over years and years.

Oh well, end of an era with amazingly large inboxes..I hope at least they up the limit to 500.

Saw this earlier Joe. I started playing around with downloading my 1500 odd messages using the options on the new site. What did you find as the most reliable(readable) option of doing it Joe?

I downloaded as a text file as the others were both web based thingies, one just looks like a complete tonne of utter crap (code) but the txt file saves as a notepad file, which has no width limit unfortunately but it did neatly store them in date order (earliest first)

Cheers Joe, that option was the only one i didn't play with. I gave up after stuffing around with the others for a while. I'll give it a shot.

No problem, annoyingly it seems that no-one else (even if they are bothered) will post on that thread to at least get the pm limit to 500, kinda fighting an uphill battle if I am the only voice Laughing

How do you go about backing up your messages? Where do you go to save them? I can't find any function to save them to another place. Rolling Eyes

You can only do it from the new site (which is down again now as testing is done).
I suggest it's the 1st thing you do on the new sites launch on Friday. All your old pm's should be there.
Go to the PM page & you'll see an option at the bottom to download your PM's from the old site (3 alternatives on how to do it, 2 web based & 1 text based).
If you have more than 250 messages, you will not be able to receive any new pm's on the new site until you clear some space.

Now, i have a question re the closing of the existing site, is 12 midnight Wednesday EST in 4.5 hours or a day & 4.5 hours? Damn time differences screwing with my head!!

So what's the address to the new site that is temporarily down until it is back Friday? This shit is confusing! I never got to see the new set-up. Does it look cool?

Search is screwy fo'sure.
Anyone found out how to display more than a few threads at a time on each page. I've found a way to increase the number of posts displayed per page, but not the threads.
