The Board Attachment Quota Has Been Met

Post by Annasiel » Mon Oct 23, 2017 9:03 pm

Some of you have most likely seen this error when trying to upload pictures through attachment. I don't know the full reason for its cause, and will be asking B when I can, but I assume the board has some sort of limit on the number of images it can host.

For now, I suggest you use one of the two sites below:

www.imgur.com
www.tinypic.com
www.postimg.org
www.imgsafe.org

These allow you to upload images, then get a direct link (a link ending in .jpg, .bmp, .gif, or some other file extension). You can then place this between the [img] tags to share the images on RPF.

Can't we just go back and delete old attachments? There's a thing for that in the user control panel.

In the long run, it would be better for people to use one of those sites for storage. Not only do you have a place where it's just really easy to get and use your pictures, but it puts a lot less strain on the RPF server. Not to mention it's impossible to copy attachments, so an RP owner can't copy appearances that are attachments into the CS storage thread for their RPs.

Welp, that would explain why my app freaked out when I tried it. :lol:

It's fine, though. I generally just use the [img] tag method anyway, and my usual sites are Pinterest or Imgur. Hope you get it fixed. :)
