I was pestering face_master about something this evening over the PM service. And i just started to wonder that hey, he's a pretty popular guy here, and there's others like him, I wonder how many PM's they get a night?

R-O-D and I PMed back and forth a few times, then we exchanged AIM s/ns, its easier

On average? Zero. I've gotten maybe 20-30 in my year-and-a-half of being around.

During the week I usually get at least 2 a day, sometimes less, sometimes more, the more dayts are large enough that my avg is probably around 5. I haven't cleaned my mailbox out in the apst couple days, so I have around 95, including sent. Around 30 of those I keep permanently for records, the rest are from 11/12 and now.

Someone who is full of it said 40, I have highest PM traffic on boards, or so I've decided hehe

Ive gotten 10 overall, but I only started using them about a month ago. I just PMed Hillbilie and ROD regarding my XP troubles. Made it a lot easier than posting a million replies.

I get about 0 PMs - but then again I'm hardly here...

In being here I've only had to empty my PM box maybe once or twice. (I think I'm nearing it again...)

I usually receive zero a day. Every week or so I'll get one or two...

Now at FD, that's something different. :) STOP PMING ME YOU HEATHENS!!! :D J/k...

When I'm in my "active" board stage, I usually get 1-2 a day... When I'm at school, I get one every couple of days

I don't know how many I've received and could not even begin to count them. I purge my sent, message tracking, and inbox folders regularly once they get too clutered.

eh, maybe 2 a week.

When people PM me about programming problems I usually play dumb because I'm too lazy to answer over PM (how on Earth could I ever answer a programming question without Salem pointing out mistakes, anyhow? :)). Kermi3 won't stop PMing me. I think he's got a thing for me...

last PM I got was...::checks date:: the 21st. But I had no clue what the hell the person was babbling about so I've left it alone until I get a followup.

My first PM was from Kermi :p, though it was under Gamegod3001. I don't get that many, I had a couple with someone who was having trouble with Borland and SDL.

Now on Flashdadde someone PM's me about the Chat room that I have made public that it does not work for me

Look, I was insanely drunk that night; it doesn't set the tone for anything else.

Look, Kermi! Don't buy into that. Thats the same line he gave me! Ken, you player, you.

>>[Censored for content by moderators]

And its a damn good thing I caught it in time. That Kermi has a mouth on him! I never heard of anyone doing that with a box of crayons before!


... Oh, and number of PM's? Hard to say. Sometimes I get loads at a time and sometimes weeks go by without one. I've recieved probably a few hundred overall, I guess. That doesnt average out to very many per day, considering how long I've been here.

Well, now that you know about that little kinky trick, I'll bet you'll recieve a lot more PMs... Your troubles are over. ... That is, unless you're allergic to coloured wax.

Well that was completely different! FAQ submissions, anger, and a small fortune of Crayola boxes...

I got censored! wooo hooo, worse part is, I have no clue what I said, but I know I deserved it! If the "mod" ;) who did it remembers what I said PM me LOL.

>>if ytou have a prob....PM me

I have a problem! Whenever I go to... Wait, is the problem supposed to relate to the closing of this thread? ... Oh... okay then.

Alternatly you could PM me. This would serve a dual purpose. a) It would up my critically important PM count, and b) I'm much more likely to re-open rude and hopefully offensive posts than Kermi is. :cool: j/k
