Quote from: eurocoin on July 04, 2017, 03:31:59 PMWhat are the possibilities of abandoning the 126kb limit? And how can the problems that arise from that be solved?
Quote from: Figleaf on July 04, 2017, 01:19:49 PMThe solution would be worse than the problem. Moving the thread would break the links to it. They'd have to be repaired one by one by hand. Locking the thread would make it inaccessible to members, except anointed (global) moderators and administrators.Peter
Quote from: capnbirdseye on July 04, 2017, 03:46:24 PMI don't know the server costs to run it but I would think that if the site permitted hi res photo's and everyone began to upload hi res images it would use a lot more bandwidth. The current limit allows perfectly good photo's
Quote from: <k> on July 04, 2017, 04:18:08 PMMost members are very good with apps and computers these days, and do know how to do it. You get the odd person who keeps complaining, "But it's too hard!" Some people will just not learn, but most will take the trouble to learn the few simple steps to compress a photo. This board has instructions on how to do it. It's only difficult if a person is lazy. Apart from anything else, learning how to use graphics software is very enjoyable. It has lots of other uses, too.

Quote from: andyg on July 05, 2017, 07:47:14 PMIt's all very well asking for a bigger limit but someone has to pay for it via increased hosting costs....
