As I have just about reached my limit for attachments and would like to post some more, if I go into My Controls to Handling Attachments and delete some of the older ones does that mean that my posts will remain and that the photos relating to them will no longer be there? :whistling:

Yes

If any are essential to a post then you could look at using imageshack or similar to host the image

If it's an older post, you might decide to reduce the size of the picture and still retain the info, but gain a little extra space. If something is really important- like if you prepared tutorials that need the included screenshots for meaningful explanation, send a PM to Admin and ask that your limit be bumped up. Admin will evaluate whether or not the request is feasible, and adjust accordingly.

Thank you Johanna for your advice. No, they're not for tutorials or anything of the like, they are all in the "Off Topic" Forums, hopefully providing some comic relief or general interest for those passing by. I didn't want to delete some of them because I think they're funny/interesting and I know new people come in to check out what's been going on and look over old posts. Had a quick look at imageshack and when I get some time I may see if I can host some through there. As well, I will have a look, as you suggested, at reducing some. Thanks again. :whistling:

I would recommend that you look into off-site hosting. There are a number of good options. AllYouCanUpload is a fairly new alternative with no limits, and not even registration required. It's from the c|net folks.

We're on the generous side when it comes to attachment limits for members. However, with close to 200,000 members we do have to have limits. We also are not able to make adjustments on a case-by-case basis, it's a global setting. Thanks for your understanding.
