Right now you can delete all but your last 20 private messages. For some reason the admin has the threshold set to save the last twenty messages you put in your trash can. I have no idea why. I put messages I want to save in a saved folder and things I DON'T want to save in the trash, but whatever. I'm just weird like that. thinking.gif Here is a work around until the admin figures out what most people use the trash can for drops the setting for messages saved in your trash to zero.

Send yourself 20 messages, or swap sending 20 with someone else. You don't have to put much more than a dash in the message to send it. The next day, all older messages should be deleted and you should just be left with the 20 you sent yourself. Unfortunately, you'll have to do this every time you have a message you want to actually be deleted from your trash, but it gets the job the done. It is a bit tedious, but work arounds for badly written software usually are. wall.gif

Thanks for that. It's still bloody stupid that we have to do it this way.

Any news if they've changed the software so Huddler can no longer read our private messages? And is "Huddler" actually going to apologise for breaking the rules about not posting the content of private messages? It's bad enough they're reading them, let alone plastering them over the forum.

Anyone with access to the database, on any forum, with a little know how or add-on can read your private messages. I just wouldn't send anything you wouldn't want being seen. That's generally a good idea for the internet in general.

As for posting the the contents of a PM, they have apologized for that and have stated it won't happen again.
