PM storage

Postby gaminwench » Wed Jul 01, 2015 1:09 am

Is there any way to increase storage for PMs?

(I'm a saver, I find that returning to old PMs, much like going through old photos,sooo retro, gives me warm fuzzies) :P

Thanks, mods, for all that you do!!!

Yes - print them off.

No, not on our server. Trilo can tell you the ins and outs of it wayyyyyy better than I, but no. The ability to forward would kick ass though.

BUMMER!!!

Ah, well ... the new tech (cloud storage) meets the old tech (paper, really?) and the old tech wins ... *sigh*

Can you just copy and paste them into a new folder instead of printing?

Sorry, Gaminwench, we're not gmail or Facebook. On the upside, we're not Google or Facebook, and do not pay for such cloud storage services through commercial data mining.

I would absolutely recommend that you save any pictures you like to your computer (in your photo app of choice), and save contents of emails to your computer as well. That way the contents should still be searchable and available, and not take up so much space for you to store (you only have to worry about one user, not 55K).

If you rub Trilobytes belly the right way and wait until he's not swamped you might be able to get him to run this query on the database:

Code: Select all

SELECT p.msg_id, p.author_id, u.username, p.message_time, p.message_subject, p.message_text, p.to_address, p.bcc_address
FROM phpbb_privmsgs p, phpbb_users u
WHERE u.user_id = p.author_id



[Then again, could you imagine being him and constantly needing to fulfill individual member requests? Printing 'em or copy/paste the important ones is likely the way to go.]

Definitely not interested in creating more work for Trilo.

Thanks for the replies, y'all.
