Attachments turned off.

The attachments table in our database is upwards of 2GB in size, too big. After doing some reading and looking through the database I have decided not to delete the attachments older than 60 days, what I originally went in to do. Instead I have turned off attachment viewing in anticipation of the release of version 3 of our forums software which will allow us to take the attachments out of the database and into actual files. This will hopefully allow for a faster database.

So for the time being you need to use offsite hosting services and link to the images via the vb [img] tag.

I apologize for this inconvenience. Please remember that it is done for the good of the site and is only a temporary solution.

BTW, those of you who already use hosting services it would help myself and others to post them here and I can make a list for people.


Thanks!

As your attorney, I advise you to delete any image hosted on PBN, no matter how old it is.

And I am well aware of the fact that pictures of gun setups may be deleted as well.

Excellent idea Tony. I myself use my own web hosting. I noticed that the site is getting a bit better too. Good job

Most larger ISPs provide customers with webspace when they sign up. I have found this to be the most reliable method for hosting, as long as you stay with them your account is active and they have quick webservers.

I can see where you come from Kyle, but I agree with Matt, some posts are vital and shouldn't have to go and not everyone is willing to host high priority images.


Question for you: Has the new server been implemented? If not, what's the ETA?

the new server went into production november, and has enabled us to server over two times the users we were before.

unfortunately the choice to allow users to upload images wasn't mine the first time around, and due to the nature of things, its unfortunate that we can't really allow users to do it.

of course i don't know too many other popular bb's around that do..

www.Netfirms.com is the best, if you know how to use an FTP.

Can you give me some time, or let me know when you will delete them so I can fix up the whole cocker FAQ thread. Some are on here others are linked.

Sounds reasonable. Thanks for the input Kyle. Well, I will admit, the server is trucking along a whole lot smoother. Good stuff. Keep us posted on what else you plan to implement.
