I love this site, and forum members have been very generous in giving me "thumbs up's". However, I can't figure out how to delete these messages. It looks like I have 17 pages of them!

Thanks

I have 118 page. Blinking
There is no way to delete them but once you view them, the only way to see them again is to click the « View past system messages. When you get new messages, you can see them all together once again, the new and old. Check them on a regular basis to clear them.

I have 24,400 system messages (244 pages at 100 per page)

Once you've seen them they kind of "go away" and become read. You can always go back and view them but they shouldn't hurt to have them archived in this way.

I have 8,387 system messages (210 pages) but I see no need to totally delete them; they get archived/stored once they are read.

I reference mine from time to time, so I appreciate the fact that they're archived and accessible.

The only thing I randomly track is to be sure I've given more thumbs and acorns than I've received. Oops, lagging in the acorns given, time to shake the tree -- watch your heads!

I never thought to look either... 23 pages. I do reference some of the newer ones so never thought to delete anything.

My husband is the deleter/cleaner upper on the computer around here. He can't stand it when I have so many "favorites" in the folder with my name, but he doesn't dare delete any of them. Of course, his folder of favorites is down to the bare bones necessities. It's maddening sometimes when he says, "do you need this on here anymore?" Rolling on the floor laughing To each his own, rusty bone!
