There should be a pm feature available to moderators and administrators that allows them to check a box that makes the pms not take up space. So if a member pms an admin or mod requesting support on something, the PMs would not take up space on each-others box, so a member (or mod) does not need to worry about having to delete important PMs when ever they need to pm a moderator for support, or every-time a moderator gets contacted.
All private messages take up space, you can't just disable that, because data has to be stored. Storage can easily be increased per group.
there's already an option to override storage limit for certain groups.
You guys dont get what I am saying.
Using your suggestion would mean that every time a member sends a support message to a moderator, I would have to manually increase that moderators pm space, and when the mod replies, I would need to increase the mem bers pm space by one, and when the moderator and the member deletes the message I would need to reduce the message space.
If a member sends a pm to a member which reads something along the lines of this "dude your sig rocks" I want the pm to take up space. However, if a member sends a pm to a saying "Hay some dude is flaming me...... can you please help me" I want the moderator to be able to when he replies, select a box that basically says
"This PM is a support PM, and is sent for the purpose of a member obtaining support, not to socialize. Therefor I dont want the PM he sent to me, this and all subsequent replies to add to our quota" So if the member has 39/50 pms and the mod has 80/150 pms, when the member sends the pm to the moderator, the moderator's pms would still be 80/150(instead of 81/150) and when the moderator replies the members pms would be 39/50 not 40/50.
Same goes for if an admin sends out a global pm, he/she can make it so that the pm wont take up the members quota.
I still want pms that are sent for the purpose of socializing to take up quota space, but pms sent requesting support wont.
