    opt-in option in the admin for groups ability to delete their own PC messages, and maybe delete other PC messages (for mods and admins).

    Some times you want to delete stuff on a PC, and also some times firefox is running so slow that u hit the button multiple times and causes the message to be posted several times so I think this is a feature that it is needed. It is not high priority but it is still needed some times

    You can delete your own pc's now, one at a time.
    I do agree that we need to be able to delete multiple, or all, pc's, in one action.
    I also believe that this has been suggested at least a couple of times.

    Even better would be an option to auto-delete after xxx days of no new messages in the conversation. We've had over 42,000,000 PMs pass through our existing system, and I suspect users will use the conversation system even more since it's better.

    no auto delete without the option to move conversations into folders or to save them...

    i would be extremly pissed if i would lose some important messages because of auto deletion!

    That's what we do on our current vB... auto-deletion of PMs after 90 days... but 365 days if the user moved it to a PM folder.

    My PC box is full of junk and it's extremely frustrating to delete each of the PC's one by one. A mass delete option would help big time.

    Is there any means to limit the number of PM's (conversations) that a user may have?
    I believe that leaving the conversation will soft delete it but how are these conversations physically deleted?

    The number of conversations isn't a configurable option.

    Once all participants have left a conversation, it is automatically deleted as part of a routine cron task.

    So a conversation between 2 people - as soon as one leaves - it will be deleted? Surely it doesn't require both the have to end it??
    Otherwise what controls does the Admin have at his disposal?

    No, only when ALL participants leave.

    OK thanks.
    So, no upper limit to the number of permitted conversations and no ability to enforce the deletion of conversations.
    1) Can the Admin have the means to see how many conversations are out there and the space being utilized etc?
    2) Can an Admin see by user how many conversations exist?
    3) Can conversations be restricted in any way on a per user basis?

    Basically what control does the Admin have?

    I believe I saw that PC's handling attachments is either here in 1.1 or coming very soon.
    The space issue will therefore become even more pressured for many admins.

    Yes I agree.
    Brogan - any thoughts on this? Are there any controls for the Admin here?

    Could we possibly get a Developer response to this problem and what option exist till such time as it can be formally addressed?

    Looks like this will have to be covered by an add-on as there are no plans to cover it in the core code.
    Over to the coders zone!

    I have 70 pages of personal messages and a moderator said he had 50... Imagine how difficult the deletion process is... I hope some bulk management comes to XenForo soon.
