    G'Day,
    I found out only last night that via our user cp we can actually manage our stored attachments....I've got about 85 @ 5Mb......What is Wilders policy on keeping these.........Do we have a limit?.........Should I start to clear a few of the older ones and does this 'mess up' those older threads?
    Thanks,
    Buck

    Actually, I replied in that thread a little while ago:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=316417

    But since that is a Test Forum thread which will go away eventually, I'll say the same thing here.

    You do not need to worry about your uploaded attachments. We could put a limit on them if we wanted and we could also automate a cleanup of older or lesser used (downloaded/viewed) attachments, but we probably won't do either. There's plenty of capacity for these images so we'll probably just leave them all.

    Sorry Brad, Rita and Mike, ;)

    I didn't mean to cause any confusion ... I was simply thinking of simple generic things that might affect one user, before moving into more specific ones. But I did say ...

    Thanks Mike for explanation regarding attachments & Sorry for causing any trouble.

    Ps. It was real early my time-zone ... and I had been up all night, as usual :ninja: :rolleyes: :ninja:

    I was just thinking (no comments please Mrs Beetle! :D ) that now i understand why we can't upload a pic that we have previously already uploaded in another thread......because it's already there in storage....
    That was a brilliant bit of deductive thinking.........wasn't it??

    I think there's plenty of space available for a huge number of images on the servers.
