Cool why Attachments size limitation ? increase it ...!!


To better explanation problem some times we may need attachements.

But total attachements size is tooo small.
I think it is better to increase the size of attachement limiation.
Because attachement facility allows a thumbnail picture view. Which is far better than attaching some where else and giving link to it.

Probably because there are several hundred thousand members and if we all upload large files we will end up flooding the storage space and drive Jeremy to bankruptcy. If you just want to attach a screenshot or text file, there is no need to have a large file size. If you need to upload something bigger, use an offsite hosting solution.

.
I don't see size as a problem.

Just delete the oldest or move text files to a pastebin site,
if you think they should still be accessible.

Images can eventually be moved to http://photobucket.com/

Hello,
How much space do you need?
What type of file that was?

It's not about single file, But i am talking about total attachement limitation.

A single file limitation is 256 Kb. A snapshot file size <40 Kb, that's not a problem.

but total upload files limitation is 1 MB only.

raju;
I see the file size (or total storage) limitation as totally appropriate---remember that the site owner is paying for storage space and bandwidth. For me, the only reason to have this at all is for transient usage---eg posting some code to help in trouble-shooting. Once the problem is solved, remove the attachment.

There are many other options available for storing and linking large files. In my case, I simply use my personal website. (File sharing is one of the main reasons for having it.)

We intentionally set the limit low when we initially rolled the feature out, to allow for testing and monitoring. Looking at the average usage profile, I've updated the limit to 10M. Thanks for the feedback.

Hi, Thanks for that Jeremy, But I also did not know about the limit. I've never hit it.

Like others here, I use an off site storage solution for large pics, and simply link them to the post. For me it's google pages/groups.

Thank you.

regards Glenn
