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.
