Would it be possible to make folders to organize our PMs?

Organize them how, Nathan?  There's currently an Inbox and Outbox, both of which can also be sorted by date, subject, or name.  What exactly were you interested in seeing?

Chris will have to be the one to let us know if that's a customizable feature or not, but if I had to guess, I'd probably say it's not going to be.  But we'll let you know...

Ideally we would be able to create, name, and edit our own folders as much as we wanted.

But what I'm mainly looking for is an Archive folder where I'd put the messages I want to save. Then the stuff that's going to be deleted eventually (upcoming transactions and so on) can sit in my Inbox till it's dealt with.

If I was someone with 1000s of PMs I'd also want to put them in folders by sender or category or something, but so far that's not an issue. ;)

Also, how about a little more functionality in the profiles? Specifically, a space to put a bio and a field for real name?

At this point in time the forum software does not allow for any of the changes you would like. If at some point it does, I will be sure to let you know.

Feel free to do like alot of us and put your name in your signature, though... I like knowing people by first name.

Surprised no one mentioned it.  There is a cap on the number of pm's you can keep as a regular member.  Not sure of the exact number, but it's not in the 1000s. 

As a pain in the ass suggestion, you could always copy and paste the information into a Word/WP file and save it for future reference.
