It tells you in the owl box:
Inbox contains XXX Owls.
You have XXX Owls stored, of a total XXX allowed.

I believe Montse was talking about Profile Messages...

And the best answer we got this far I believe is this:

Re: Comments on New CoS Forums Features

The maximum number of pictures per album for Students & Hogsmeade should be 50. I checked and it was still at 30 for Students. I've raised it to 50 now. Apologies for that.

I'll talk to Ali about space/bandwidth requirements and see what we can do about raising the number per album.

Re: Comments on New CoS Forums Features

I've noticed that some members have profile pictures and/or headers in their profiles. I can't figure out how to do either. Is this something that's only for certain members or am I just missing something?

Re: Comments on New CoS Forums Features

Some members have profiles pictures because they've participated in the Triwizard Tournament, and got those as a reward. Members cannot change their profile pictures themselves, though.

And I don't think you can put up a header in your profile; what you can do is set the background picture so that it doesn't repeat itself. That way, it'll only show up in the top-left corner of the profile, as if it were some kind of header. Is that what you meant?

Ahh - that makes sense. Thanks!

Re: Comments on New CoS Forums Features

My photo albums are only letting me have 25 pics in one and 23 in the other. Isn't the limit 50 in each? This really isn't that big of a deal, I was just wondering if I should delete some to make room for new ones


All the new stuff is awesome! Thank you so much for doing this for us

No, I believe it's 50 total, which means if you have those, and then 2 profile pics or something, then you're at your limit. So yes, I'd say delete some.

Re: Comments on New CoS Forums Features

I feel so silly for asking this, and I have tried to figure it out on my own before coming here, but I have a question about the sidebar that shows a select number of friends. It seems that the people listed are always changing, and it seems to not coincide with posts I've gotten. It changes each time I go to my profile page, there are different people from my Buddies' List represented. Is it random, and something that the new features does automatically, like shuffling them, or does it coincide with numbers of posts or visits?

(Edit: I've since been told that this is something that is random, but I'll leave the post in case anyone else wants to know...)

Random. It just shuffles and deals different friends each time

I haven't had much of a chance to really check out the new features as yet though to be frank for the amount of time I have to spend here most of it it pretty much supurfluous to my needs anyway. The only thing I miss is a direct link to the Magical Me page, it now only appears as a drop down. Nothing major really but it was nice to have that direct link available.

Oh, and to reiterate what someone was saying earlier, the 'choose a theme' picture link at the top of the screen on the COS layout, , doesn't appear to do anything either.

This depends on the layout design a bit. Within the new layouts a click on your avatar will bring you to Magical Me (but that's not you, so you probably know already, but use a different style).

Hoover over it and click on it. Do the skins appear now (the icons should become bigger)?

Like I said it's no big deal, I happen to prefer the COS layout anyway, the colours are easier to read.

Nope, stays the same for me. Maybe it's an Internet Explorer thing. Still, tis no big deal.
