    Hi everyone.

    Before we reinstall the built in Image Uploader I would like to appeal to all of you to please respect the reason as to what this feature is for - to upload photo's of your systems. We have a very large number of unrelated photo's, such as birds, cars, planes, babies, grandmothers etc. etc. Please guys, this is not a dumping ground for random pics from the net. Server space costs us a fortune (we only have 36GB to play with) and if we have to continually remove junk then we will have no option but to disable it completely and you will all have to use photobucket or imageshack.

    We are one of the extremely rare few forums that allows on site image hosting, please do not abuse the privilege or it will be removed. All images non reef related are now being deleted, this may take a few days but once we have cleared it out we will then reopen the uploader. As a result of this we have also reduced the number of images you may upload from 2500 down to 1000. If you have reached this limit then I recommend you use photobucket or ReefClips.net: Reef Aquarium Image & Video Gallery. Thank you.

    Was wondering what happens to our old system photo's? Cant we have like a recycling image archive so that when we reach 500 images it will just start to "overwrite" image 001?

    No, because then the images will be deleted or replaced in the posts, and they may be useful images for ID purposes etc. so it is best not to delete them. If you behave then I'll up the amount from 500 again, but only if you promise to be good. :p

    Any idea why the images are in order of most recent - coz if you go to your oldest pics and delete it then it brings you to the newest one again then .... awe too much blabbing ... is there any way to have the order reversed plz?

    No guys, don't delete your old pics as it will cause some threads to go out of whack.

    These are some of the pics I'm talking about - once the novelty of the post is over and nobody visiting the thread maybe we can request the thread b closed and the relevant pics deleted?

    too late, I dropped about 15 really crap pictures.

    If we should not delete it, then please remove the delete action

    Cause I have the premium account and I upload original size photos (which then gets cropped by photobucket) within minutes/seconds, even if I upload 20 pics at a time...;)
