You can now delete the entire conversation, or just individual messages.

Why would anyone want to mass delete?

Because PM's are not just PM's, they're also any private conversations you have while in chat. Many people like to delete those conversations after they're done. With the old page, if you had a PM conversation in chat with someone, and exchanged 50 messages back and forth, you had to delete each one of them individually.

I only have the X's on some messages. At first thought it was date specific, and only went back so far, but it's not. Some long conversations I have x boxes on the later messages, but no x's on many older ones in the same conversations. I hope I am not confusing. Basically the delete individual messages, aren't on all messages in the same conversation.

Cstar thank you for getting back to me on this.  I know that Kid has requested gunter to ask tech to increase the number of "x" assigned.  Actually every message in any conversation should have an "x" on it.  To limit it to 10 per conversation shows limited thinking when making the change.  Thank You.

If that was the crux of the problem . . . then why wasn't it looked into "separating" chat PM's out of the mix, into it's own little box . . . why screw up the whole PM function . . .

Because chat PM's & PM's are all run by the same mechanism. It's one single messaging system.

Plus it wasn’t  only chatters that have been requesting this.

Already understood that, so the question still remains . . .

The only thing have seen over the years was asking for the ability to delete more than a single PM at the same time . . . that could have easily been done, instead of what "was" done . . .

From what have seen, that is the same sentiment pretty much across the board - great that more than one PM can now be deleted but not happy with the rest . . .

I have no idea how to write code. From what I understood in the early stages it could not be done from the older inbox.

But whatever it's change you you do not have to like it.
