Had to shrink them down to make room for the Vendor memberships. They have a 5,000 PM limit.

If anyone needs a larger PM limit than what comes standard, they are most likely a seller/dealer and should upgrade anyways...

As I said, if you need the extra space you need to upgrade. Sorry, but the server harddrive won't accommodate all these large PM boxes without a little give or take.

Do vendors really need 5000? Can't get away with 2500?

Sounds like a money grab to me to get regular members to become paying members/vendors.

And.....how come there was no warning of this? There should have been a mass PM letting everyone know and to give them time to go through their pm's.

They can, or anyone can sign-up for free @caraudio.com e-mail.

I think we deserve more than 150...... I mean I do tons of business on here, I am not a dealer or vendor, why should I have to pay to keep the pm space I had when I signed up?

You have 1 vendor.......so you shrunk everyones accounts for one vendor?

Future allotment.

I suppose it's time to close this thread, as I see what its turning into.

Not a money grab, just making room on the disk for the Vendors.

If you're making money on this site as a seller/dealer, the vendor membership is going to really help you out and you're supporting the site as well.

You also get a free forum with vendor membership now also, in addition to everything else that comes with it. If you look at what all you get, it's really not a bad deal IMO.

Unless it comes with some free tangible swag, it is a bad deal IMHO.

We still have to have the word/pic filters for the mass amounts of google ads, and now we get limited pm boxes for vendors......I fail to see the bonus to us.

You can't expect everything on this site to always be free of charge. If you're making money on the site, support it. Don't support it, don't get the added vendor membership benefits.

And if enough vendors signed up, then the Google ads could go away. The ads are currently the only thing supporting the forum.

The bonus to the average member will be, hopefully, the return/draw of professionals within the industry, something that members have expressed a desire for even as recently as a week ago.
