    I emptied my PM box yesterday lost all I had and it messed me up badly. How can I empty it and keep a few with messages I need? Thanks for any help. I asked Amin on the Contact Us and he replied he did not have time.

    Let's be clear here. The "Contact Us" page specifically says:

    You ignored that request and instead messaged me three times in rapid succession:

    I then replied to you with the following

    And that is the unfortunate truth. I don't have the time. I get lots and lots of messages asking "What camera should I get?" "How do I post pictures on the site?" "Why can't I send a PM if I have no posts?", etc. This site is not my job. It is basically a labor of love, and I do the best that I can, but I have a job and a family.

    Every time someone posts in Help and Feedback, I get an email notification, and when I see that email, I check this forum and read the thread. Many times, a helpful member or mod has already addressed the issue. If not, I do my best to answer. This system has worked reasonably well for those members who are willing to use the forum instead of contacting me directly with every question.

    Lastly, you replied:

    The answer to why I have the Contact Us page on is that I want people to be able to get in touch for specific things which can't be handled in the forum. I read every message I get from that page, and I respond to anything I think can't be handled in the forum. But the purpose of this site is primarily the forum, so I think it's reasonable to have members use the forum for most questions.
