I've been looking but I don't see a "delete" function for getting rid of old messages or "conversations". Can someone please help me with this?
Thanks

Never mind. I was able to get them off of my list by using the Leave Conversations option but the semantics make it very hard to understand. Maybe you should change it to Delete Conversations so that people know exactly what is going to happen. To me Leave Conversations means to leave them on the list.

So... they are called "Leave Conversation" because "Delete" implies they are being deleted and they are not. Conversations are now essentially the same as posts. You can leave them which removes them from your inbox but it doesn't remove it from the recipient or the server. I understand the confusion but we don't want to mislead people as they aren't deleting the convo.

I understand. I thought "Leave" was the same as "Delete" which is why I asked the question. I did not realize that the conversation stayed forever.

On another note I did not receive an email notifying me you had quoted me. I think I'm not going to worry about it anymore since I am notified as soon as I log in that I have been quoted and since I log in at least once a day it should be okay.

What happens of you leave a conversation, but the other person replies. Will you receive a notification? Will they know you have "left the building"?

Is there a limit to the number of conversations in one's account? Is there a benefit to leaving or not leaving a conversation?

When you leave a convo, you are given the option to receive future messages or not. If you choose to accept future messages and the other party writes again, the message will return.

There is no limit on conversations. The benefit (at least for me) in leaving a convo is that it is just cleaner and I can find messages I still haven't answered more easily.

I will test what happens on the sender's end if a message is sent after the other party leaves the conversations with the "Ignore future messages" option. Probably nothing but your question has made me curious.
 

Your message may be considered spam for the following reasons:

  1. Your new thread title is very short, and likely is unhelpful.
  2. Your reply is very short and likely does not add anything to the thread.
  3. Your reply is very long and likely does not add anything to the thread.
  4. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose.
  5. Your message is mostly quotes or spoilers.
  6. Your reply has occurred very quickly after a previous reply and likely does not add anything to the thread.
  7. This thread is locked.
