    Current PM statis: Low

    now that's low! :wink: (it may be that i only say this becuase my status is low but i think it generally is kind-of stupid, and only adds to the strange competition in this place)

    Re: status


    *wipes tears from eyes*

    No, maximus, PM=Private Message. If your PM box is not very full, the status is "low". If it is quite full, the status is "high". It is only an indicator that tells you when to empty out your box, and only you can see your status.

    Want me to send you a few PM's to "boost your status"? :wink:

    Oh, this is a funny misunderstanding, indeed.

    I shot maximus a PM so he could watch his status go up! (while my post count does the same, haha)

    PM add to your post count??? How does that work, they aren't posts.

    Strange I've been here for ages and didn't know that.

    Pauly Man, PM messages do not increase post count. BH just made the joke that he sent max a PM and posted here at the same time. Meaning his reply was so easy that he increased his post count by PMing max and being able to post a simple message here.
