Yes, I use the PM. 

1.  Up the number of PM's a person can receive per hour.

2. I'd also like a private message folders. Sometimes I ask for hair tips from ladies and would like to put them in a particular folder versus having to scroll through my 40 PM pages about the topic.

3.  Some members report receiving threatening, harassing  messages via PM.  Maybe there can be a way to forward that particular PM to Admin.  This will control the drama issues & people who fight via PM.  Because you can send a PM to the harasser (with proof) and give a warming before officially suspending their account.  *thankful I've not experience this but it seems to be a problem**

Other than that the PM is fine for me.

Well I would like to see it have features that would make message management easier.. I invision a PM system with more e-mail-like management  features. In the current PM world, once you get past a few pages of PM's, the inbox becomes a bit un-wielding to manage. So here's my "starter" wishlist..

More advanced sorting options would be a very useful feature addition. (Sorting by date/time as well as name, & subject) Sorting the "Inbox" would be a matter of clicking the header row of the inbox. Of course members should be given the option to sort in both ascending and desending order.

The "Inbox" behavior should to be modified so that if a member goes to page 10 of their inbox (for example) and opens a message on that page, when they are done reading or replying and close the message, they should be taken back to the originating page. In the current PM module, the only options available are to click the browser back button (which ocasionally causes strange behavior or errors) or to click the "Inbox" button which will take the member back to page 1 of the inbox.
 
It goes without saying that the Outbox should have similar features. The ability to forward messages from the Outbox would also be a nice feature addition.

**Edited italicized sections for clarity**

  Diva, Clearly i don't use the PM function enough cause I didn't even realized it worked that way! I've never needed to scroll past the first page in my PM box. But, yeah! that needs to be changed as Diva suggested.

I also agree on the idea no.3.

I agree with QB on a way to report PMs from harassers. I've gotten a few before and I was disappointed to see that I couldn't report it. The PM is probably the most common place for drama because people are free to say whatever and not get caught.

That's the only thing I would change. I like the simplicity of it other than that.

Adding the ability to forward PMs would be a nice feature addition (it would also resolve the issue of not being able to report PMs as requested above)

No I don't want you to add the forward feature from member to member. That's like starting gossip. One member might not want others to know what they wrote to one privately.
