    All,

    If your name is on the list below, welcome to the Private Message Hall of Fame :/

    The database for Silver Stackers is getting obese - time to trim some fat. This is the list of users with more than 1000 private messages in their folders (both received and sent) - there's 181,000 messages between this group, out of 314,000 private messages in total in the system. Private messages account for more space in the database now than the last three years of posts! It is causing issues with performing nightly backups of the website.

    There's potentially also a lot of personal information that would be at risk in the event of malicious access to the database.

    Would be appreciated if some cleanups could be undertaken (me included) so that the database can start shedding some fat.

    :)

    Was planning to implement an auto-delete for messages over 60 or 90 days old at one time but had a lot of requests not to do so - might need to revisit that.

    Maggie - just let me know from what date in the past i can delete from, quicker to do yours from the database!

    Ag is now the cleanest member on SS...

    GP - you should just purge 60+ day PM - actually thought that was the rule?

    I have discovered bulk deleting now.
    In the past always spent an hour to delete messages one by one when my mailbox got close to 90% capacity.
