Private Message Cleaning: 5/26/11
We’re going to be doing a little spring cleaning on 5/26/11 at around 12:01am EDT: private messages older than one year will be permanently deleted. This is an effort to lighten the load on our servers by removing hundreds of thousands of database entries.
Please backup any critical messages that you wouldn’t want to lose. vBulletin allows you to backup messages easily, should you need to do that. Just go into your PM inbox, check off the messages you want to save, then scroll to the bottom right corner near the Next Page button, and you’ll see a drop down that lets you save the messages as CSV, XML, or TXT. There’s even a quick option to download All messages towards the bottom of the page.
