Max PM length?

Post by empireum »

Hello, just wanted to report I seem to be unable to send very long PMs (like 10 or more pages in Word), getting an "Internal Server Error - 500" instead. Splitting the message into smaller parts and sending each of them individually works.

Any ideas?

Why do you want to send such long messages?

I don't think its designed to send that much data in one go. There will be an upper limit, unless PHP is consuming too much memory and then erroring. I'll up the settings a bit in the php.ini and see if that helps.

EDIT: Done. Try sending a huge PM now.

I think empireum should start using some form of IM. It would be much quicker and I'm sure people would have a lot to discuss I also say this to anyone else that contributes a huge amount but feels that they shouldn't use IM.
