Hello all,

 

I've been prompted that I've used almost reach my upload limit. And we have barely started the tour!!

 

How are you all dealing with this when upoading screenshots?

 

Let me know

Thanks!

Most of your beautiful images of the Constellation are in .PNG format. 

If you convert them to .JPG format, they will be physically much smaller and your upload limit will not be so vulnerable.

Yes, seeing other users were attaching plenty of images I thought there was no such a limit so I didn't mind about attaching compressed formats... Thanks! I'm glad you liked my screenshots! ;-)

After reading this article I'm now concerned about the limit as well!  I've submitted many JPEG shots, which I know don't take nearly as much space as other formats.  Having said that, I am aware of no way, unless warned, to determine how much space my submissions have taken to this point!  

 

IT'S PROBABLY NOT TOO HARD TO PROVIDE A "SLIDING SCALE" OR SIMILAR REPRESENTATION OF HOW MUCH OF THE FULL AMOUNT OF ALLOWED PHOTO ENTRIES WE HAVE LEFT.  Or when logging into this "club", a notice of how much allowed space was used & how much was left would really be helpful.

 

I'm still in India, but being ahead of time, I'm using my time to tour other areas such as Paro Bhutan as well.  And based upon past trips there, Paro and the surrounding areas are great places to take screenies!! However, if I'm near or even close to being near my limit of screenie submissions, I will hugely cut back on my submitted screenies for the rest of the trip. 

 

The sooner we are all made aware of our current used percentage of the screenie limits, obviously the better and more enjoyable all our diaries will be!

 

In fact, due to the lack of info on the topic, I'm even scared to add a screenie into this or any other forum piece lest it count against my overall total as well.

Simple.

Go to (your) account-> profile ->my attachments and you'll find how much memory you still have. Eventually, on the same page, you can remove old pictures. 

I really hope this could help.

I added another gig to each account, but do be careful, server space is pretty expensive.

Thanks!

 

As to being careful, I'm already looking at dropping some shots, especially the RW shots from my diary, should it get too full.

Is there a way to delete more than 1 image at the time? I'm happy enough to delete some older images if it helps with server space, but it seems we can't delete them in bulk and doing it 1 at a time is very cumbersome.

Hmmm, I dont think so; when I remember correct in one of the previous versions of the forum software it worked. Will have to check if it can be done some how.

No worries, thanks Otto. I'll get around to it sometime when I have a bit of free time.

We have checked it but so far found nothing. We won;t give up though.

Is it possible to edit the older posts?  Then I could exchange the png's for jpeg's. My capacity is exhausted... :(

 

Best regards

I added some more, but do be careful, we simply do not have unlimited space.
