Hello! At the bottom, where you add attachments, it says I have used 2.08MB of your 2MB upload quota.
Does this mean that I can never post another attachment?? I have been advised that I should add pictures when submitting tutorials . Do I have to use a program like photo bucket sense I have used up my quota??

Now as far as the attachments let's see if I can help with that. Go to the top of this page and in the light blue bar toward the right you will see the words My Settings... Click My Settings
On the left side of the page scroll down till you find Manage Your Attachments and click on it.
On the new page you will see a list of all your attachments you have done since being on the board I suspect.
On the right side you will see You have 6 attachments (1% used) or something like this. Directly under that you will see a little box...Click it
Now lower down you will find the Delete Selected button....Click it
Now your attachment space should be free again.
Let me know if this helps out with attaching the file now.

Hello sir!! I like attachments!! When I go to manage attachments, the bar at the top says I have used 100%. I see where I can delete them; but won't that screw up the posts that I have made. If someone clicks on one of my threads that had a attachment,it won't make sense to them!

Nope the attachment is already attached so it doesn't matter.
I clear mine out every month for the previous month.
The only ones you need to keep is the ones for the tutorial you are working on.

Members do have limited attachment space. If you need more, I recommend a third-party. One of my favs is http://imgur.com

Yeah but think about this. All the attachments you lost are for specific logs and or pics requested of you during the resolution of a topic. Do you really want them to be there for others to get?
I would not worry about it like I said the only one you have to worry about is what you are working on now.

Hello Sir!! OK, but my threads don't make sense without the screen shots. I just figured staff would holler at me.
I guess every thing is cool and that's the way I will do it as you suggested.
Thank you!!
