Seems odd to me...

Usually, this is to prevent mass spammers from using PM to spread their canned goodness.

If Whitney doesn't have a look at this I'll have a look tomorrow. And Asmo is correct. It is to stop spammers abusing the system.

Yes, this is why...we could raise it though.

I think I set it low shortly after we had one person spam the entire forum via pm.

May I suggest the number, whatever you all decide is the limit, be posted as part of the "news" banner on the top of the page.  I had no idea of this limitation.  Or not...I don't know if it's really that big of a deal.

Remember that this does not limit the hourly number of messages you can recieve - only those you can send. In other words, you will have the chance to read all messages successfully sent to you.

I knew it!
You all talk to each other in SECRET!
I know what you all are saying, I know!
You are sniggering and sneaken, planning to steal my precious hats, I know, I've always known.
Well I've got a plan and I'm not telling anyone what it is!

I have taken the limit off of the number of PMs a member can send in an hour. But reduced the number of people that each PM can be sent to. New members, those with under 10 posts, also have to enter a CAPTURE code to send a PM.

By Thor's Puissant Toejam, we have an informant in our midst! I try my best to lull the Pudding into complacency by giving him a crummy cavalier hat, and all the time somebody has been telling him about The Plan. I feel like a right Charlie.  :-[

You've ousted Asmo, he's after your hats. As for me, I'm more interested in that glove...

Whoops, did I say that out loud?  :-X

If that's a rolling pin in his other hand, I've been looking for good one.  This is fun, kind of like strip pudding.

Geez, some of you inhabitants of the Americas are sadly lacking in some of the more refined areas of knowledge.
I suppose you could pound dough with it, not much good for rolling though.
