15 PM / day limit for long-standing member with no issues? (Resolved) - Page 4

It could also be that sending two PMs with 8 people each in them would put a person over the limit.

100 is barely enough! I go through too many for that limit to be even be close for comfort! Rabble rabble rabble complain complain complain...

 

I completely understand it is there for stopping spam, but it's sort of troublesome in some circumstances. I was hosting a private get-together with head-fiers, and I guess the group PMs caught up. I couldn't social-network them, since I don't believe in that stuff. And I didn't know their contact info outside of head-fi before, so I needed to PM them first. I'll try and be more smart and frugal with the PMs next time I guess. Thanks for the explanation!

Well, I wouldn't say like mad per se.  But I am in a running PM thread with three other guys (at least I think they're guys).  We basically chat there throughout the day.  A dozen daily messages from me would equal 36 PMs per day.  And that's assuming I PM no one else (which I also do on occasion to set up trades and stuff).  Would that be considered excessive?

 

Oh BTW, the aforementioned hang-out thread is now in it's fifth iteration because the threads get REALLY long (and it becomes a pain to scroll to the end).  Any chance of there being a "display messages in PM threads in date descending format" option on the horizon?  wink.gif

TwinQY: The accidental limit was me trying to give new users (that had passed my "not a spammer" test) more PMs per day than just one or two. 

 

warren: That's a good suggestion.

Seriously it would be AWESOME.

And yeah I ran into the limit (the 15/day, not whatever else) trying to send PMs to multiple recipients (it apparently counts each recipient as one message, seemingly both ways - so for example if you, me, and Jude wanted to have a PM conversation, and you start it out by saying "hi" you have just sent two PMs, but Jude and I would see three (at least that's how the error message seemed to indicate)).

So my global limit is 100 or well over 8200? Just to clarify.

I have something even better in mind, but I need to get it organised. I'll get back to you guys. wink.gif

Thanks!  I'm sure you been in your fair share of epic length PM threads, and know exactly how great that'd be.

I can't send any PM's.....it says that I reached my 2 PM limit but I haven't sent anything today.......

How about a system that starts with a low limit of PMs for new members(perhaps 10 or less?), then increases the person's daily  PM limit as their number of posts made increases?

 

Besides SPAM, some people do overuse the PM function, and ask questions in a PM  that should be posted to the forum instead, so that many can answer, and others can benefit as well from the answers.

JK1: That's exactly what it does now, but it starts at 2PMs.

post #56 of 59

I'm having an issue on my account. I replied to 7 PMs and then after that it says I've reached my daily limit? I tried PM Currawong but couldn't because of the daily limit lol. So I posted on his wall :P.

Hey there,

I'm relatively new to HFi and I am blocked out at only 2 PMs/day. Is there any way I can raise this? Am I understanding this correctly that it's a bug?

 

Thanks for any advice!

You most likely have to post more on the forums to raise your post count which should raise that limit. Pretty much this is done so you don't exploit headfi without actually contributing to the forums.

I'm having a similar issue with the PM count not functioning correctly. Says I've reached my limit for a few days running without sending or receiving anything...
