It's not terribly significant, but messages seem to be
deleted after 12-13 days, not the 15 days that is
specified at the top of the page.

Are you sure about that? Maybe you are seeing 12-13 days from
when you read a message, rather than when it was sent? The code
is pretty straightforward, deleting messages from the message_web
table where TO_DAYS(NOW()) - TO_DAYS(date) > 15.
I can leave a message in my queue next time I get one and see
how long it takes to delete. :-)

I had one dated 12/3 that went away sometime yesterday
(12/15). I noticed it late last night, so likely after midnight
GMT. It seems about a day sooner than an off-by-one
misperception on my part could account for. I think that I
remember a similar issue before the time limit was changed
from 15 to 30 days (i.e., messages being deleted after 28
days or so).
Yeah, this is not anything like a serious problem. I'll try to pin
down the next message, as to deletion time, but it won't be
for another four days or so.
You are johndiii on Slashdot? I just want to make sure I've got you,
so I can look at the messages you have there now, and can note
when they delete, look at their current dates, etc.
Yes, I'm johndiii on slashdot (UID 229824). I have another
question concerning my account; is it OK to e-mail you (don't
want to impose on your time)?
Well, all of my old messages were deleted somtime between
3am (CDT) Saturday morning and 1am Sunday morning. I had
26 new messages. Has the limit been lowered (it used to be
55 or so, correct?)? So I can't say if the message that I was
watching was deleted too soon (it would have been last night
or today sometime). If this is a deliberate change, it would
be really nice to know before it happens. Thanks.
Yes, the limit is 25 messages (the message_web_maxtotal var).
Thanks. I'm waiting on the next deletion time, which should
be coming up tomorrow night (for a message dated 12/20).
A saved message from December 20 was deleted last night,
exactly as it should have been for a 15-day time period. It
appears that this issue was either a mistake, or has been
fixed. Thanks for your time and attention.
Thank you for the followup.
