I would like to suggest three enhancements to the PM system:

1) Increase the number of PM's to something larger, like 250

2) Increase the maximum size of a PM (double it?)

3) Add a profile option to say "This member prefers to receive email" when trying to PM them, instead of just saying "no PMs for this member". I experimented with having PMs off, but the small number of emails I got usually started with "I'm not sure I should email you, but since your PM is off...". I'd rather get email - that way I have it on file (I have to clean out my PM box regularly), can search it, and people will get a more rapid response.

did you know you can download all of your PM's as an xml, csv, or txt file?

I think 100 PM's is already a pretty high capacity, considering that they can be saved as such now.

PMs lack that sort of convenience, not to mention the hassle of importing them into my email archive.

I just don't want to discorage people from emailing me, which having PM off seems to do.
