Can't upload photos to the posts - folder full.
« on: January 08, 2015, 03:23:10 AM »
Any time I try to upload a photo to the post (hosted on TRW) I get:


An Error Has Occurred!
The upload folder is full. Please try a smaller file and/or contact an administrator.

I'm choosing to contact the administrator (I already tried smaller photos).  :)

Do I have some personal folder on the forum, or is the big bucket of attachments full?

You give us storage space and access to it and we will fill it!   :D

Any updates on this?  Will the folder be made larger or no more attachments on TRW?  :|

If it is the latter, how about increasing the folder size a bit but the only allowing document attachments (like pdfs or docs)?  No more images which quickly suck up room.  Why?  Because there are many easy way to remotely host photos, but documents would be easier to store on TRW (and on the average much fewer documents get attached to posts). Yet documents (like Jos' tree tutorials) are important sources of information.

We didn't use as much as I was afraid of, so I just upped the limit.

Yes, we did.  There is some junk to clean out first before I increase the quota again.

They are posting to their own photo accounts - like Flickr or something.

Admins and  @tom mann  :tommann: : We have again filled up the allocated upload space.  ANy chance that it can be increased again or we will be limited to using our own photo hosting services?

Sounds like this will just repeat forever.

If there is some sorta way to turn something here into a photo hosting site. I'd be willing to pay for that way before I ever give Photobucket a dollar.

That'll be 80K/year.
