As you probably know, I use a free service called ProBoards to host this forum. That's why you see the ads along the top.
Anyway, there is a capability to attach files to your posts. Many people have attached images to their posts, for example. I have permitted this because many people don't understand how to upload photos to Photobucket, etc. But the free service gives us only a limited space for attachments, and while we have not used much of the space yet (only 35 MB out of 4096 MB), we will eventually run out of space.
So to avoid confusion and hurt feelings, I would like to announce now that in the future I may be forced to delete the oldest attached images when we run out of room. This will probably happen without warning and I will not save the photos. So attachments here must be considered temporary and should not be considered "archival". If you find an image that you want to keep you should probably save it to your computer. NOTE: I will assume that posting an image here in this forum includes your permission for others to download it.
Also, I would like people to keep the images below 300 KB or so, and preferably around 100 KB. Large files should not be attached. This will delay the time when we run out of room.
