Forum Nearing Storage Capacity


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

Currently the forum is dangerously close to the allowed limit of forum uploads.

Please can you make sure all your gallery images are saved, we shall be removing random ones that shouldnt be here.

Also, if you have made posts with large images that dont need to be there anymore, please consider deleting them.

You can see all attachments here: http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/index.php?app=core&module=usercp&tab=core&area=attachments

Images and such that contribute to the topic, should stay, but anything that was time based that no longer has any importance please consider deleeting

We are still very close to the limits, i encourage everyone to go through and delete any images that they do not need.

Scanning the forum there are a number of massive files that look like avatar scans, please dont send them through the forum and delete them, send them to the artist people or via email or upload on other websites.

I dont want to have to block all galleries and limit upload space massively, but if people dont remove useless images i will have to.

To find all your images, click your forum name in the upper right corner, and click 'My Settings'. 'Manage Attachments' is the fifth item listed on the left column of the 'My Settings' page. From there, you can view all your attachments and delete as necessary.

EDIT: I just realized Chewett left a link in the original post. Maybe still useful information.

I have currently limited forum uploads, i shall be going through some of the bigger images on the forum and replaceing them with links to storenow, however from the last time i looked it looks like large amounts of images are in PM's and hidden forums.

I shall be going through and deleteing things when i have some spare time. If your image is on the forum it is of risk of being deleted.

DO NOT UPLOAD .BMP images, they are massive and you should jpeg compress images...

if unsure, upload anywhere else

Can images stored on another server be directly viewed on our forum or can they only be linked?

Do you have a recommendation for a free storage server? Do storenow links expire eventually?

I know these may be seem like silly questions, but any advice would be most welcome. My project will continue to be fairly upload intensive and I'd like to choose a simple and reliable system and stick with it.

Thanks for your help.

Hey Rumi,

Images may be both linked or shown as an image when hosting offsite, the way to link a picture would be to copy and paste the link address of whatever it is you want to link then to click the link button( its the 9th button on bottom from left when posting) add the address and it makes your link appear as a link.

If you want to show an image from another hosted site use the code [code][IMG]put the images address here[/IMG][/code]

I like an image hosting site named Tinypic.com, they have an option to upload pictures without the need to sign in but the image will only be hosted for a limited time, if you want images to be hosted indefinitely you would need to make an account and upload the images while singed in,

many thanks again. The more people that wipe galleries of random non-md related stuff the easier it is :)
