I'm currently on 92.

Will it only save upto a certain amount?

I'm worried I'm going to get to 100 and then have to go on a deleting spree.

I'm on 250. I dont know whether to be blush or shock
When I delete eg 10,it replaces it with 10 more from somewhere
help! someone please help!!

Oh and it all works soooo slowly when I try to delete even one.

193 here. OOps. So plenty more you can lurk on yet.

Mine has said for weeks "display limited to 250 threads".
But it seems to want to be the exact number of 250!
I have been deleting slooowly for weeks,at a few a night.
It has taken me till tonight to realise that I still have 250 I think. it seems to replace them with old ones at the bottom.
I wouldnt mind if it deleted quickly, I could soon go through them and delete most of them.

If this doesnt happen to other MNetters,I shall send MN an email.

amillionyears Mon 22-Oct-12 23:29:44

eh? I must be a gurt doily and stupid
dont get what you mean

ChaosTrulyReigns Mon 22-Oct-12 23:34:51

I don't think you have to clear them.

I think the oldest will dsiappear when you "Watch" a new one.

ChaosTrulyReigns Mon 22-Oct-12 23:35:21

Oassive as in do nuffin.

I dont want the bottom 50 for example
But I dont want to have to add 50 to get rid of 50 ifyswim
Or are you saying I am now stuck with 250 [gulps]

amillionyears Mon 22-Oct-12 23:37:40

With "threads I'm on",I can have whatever number I like
Is it not possible to do that with "threads I'm watching"?

ChaosTrulyReigns Mon 22-Oct-12 23:39:01

Why don;t you want the bottom 50?

Can you just ingore them?

amillionyears Mon 22-Oct-12 23:42:38

I have looked at the bottom 50,have finished with them
The trouble is that now I have 250 of them,the whole thing has gone so slow
Even getting on there to see the newer ones takes an age
I set up MN to do that
Then reenter MN to look on active etc,and go back to the "I'm watching" tab a few minutes later when it has connected to them.

Hi amillion,

How annoying!

Thanks for the thread, we've asked Tech to take a look.

amillionyears Fri 26-Oct-12 10:56:23

Thanks,much appreciated.

Ok, if you keep deleting you will get there, I have been reliably informed.

So, if you have 300 threads you are watching, you can only see 250 of them. If you delete 50, you will still see 250, delete 100 and you'll see 200 etc.

We have asked Tech to look at a long term change for this but it won't be soon as Tech is up to his ears atm. sad

We know it's tedious, apologies.

amillionyears Sun 28-Oct-12 18:24:13

Thats what I was afraid you might say.
It will take me ages.
Oh well,that will teach me for being so "I'm watching" trigger happy.
