I have been getting a lot of messages held up by Rootsweb because they exceed the Kb
limit. The reason is they are either in enhanced text, include images (documents, emojis,
graphics) OR they include the last few messages with ALL of the footers included. These
clog up the archives and take up LOTS of room.
I think we are so used to social media now that we do not give it a second thought, BUT
social media does NOT store our messages indefinitely like RW does. RW has gone to great
lengths to preserve these for us. PLEASE be considerate of that regardless of what you
think of Ancestry.
PLEASE trim your messages when replying to only the one you are replying to and POST IN
PLAIN TEXT. If your phone does not allow you to do that please wait to respond until you
are at your computer. WE WANT TO SEE YOUR RESPONSE and not have it held up by Rootsweb
until I have a chance to check it again. I check email it in the morning and sometimes do
not have a chance to check it again all day. I also have 8 lists that I manage on
Rootsweb, not just this one. So please be attentive to the limits of RW.
