Thanks for the info Bert.  It is a certifiable ongoing PIA for me.  I have one old computer and one new one.

A temporary solution, until 90% of capacity is reached again, might be to remove any non-informative posts and threads. For example, this entire thread could be deleted. Any posts such as “Wow, nice gun!” could be removed as well. I’ve never been a fan of logging in to the forum and seeing 6 replies to a topic of interest and wasting my time scrolling through 6 posts which basically state the gun is a nice find/wish I owned that one!, etc.

It is not the posts with just text message in them that are creating the problem. Instead, it is all of the posts with the pictures in them (which we all very much like to see and enjoy) that causes the server capacity problem. Furthermore, I quite frankly am not going to spend the immense amount of time that it would require to screen through the several thousand topics & posts trying to figure out which ones would be candidates for deletion.

Can it be set up on the site to do an auto delete on pictures on the forums after let’s say 2-4 weeks? Peter

 

PS: speeds a lot better today. Thanks to whoever pushed the right button!

No, it cannot.  Deleting anything requires direct (human) actions.

Hello,

While deleting images may make the load times faster it would seriously degrade from archival value of the forum topics for all of our interest in looking at what has been discussed, sometimes in great detail, in the past.  It may be a better solution to figure out a way to raise the necessary $$ to increase server capacity for all of our benefits.

Thank you for fixing the speed problem.  The sudden withdrawal from this WACA forum made it a long and lonesome week!

Seems to be much improved. One thing I’ve learned to do with pics is to downsize them before posting. I suspect the lower quality may be noticeable but when that’s an issue I can always e-mail a higher quality pic to anyone who wants a better look. Maybe Bert could limit the size of uploaded files but I really enjoy some of the higher-quality pics some members post, not sure how they would be affected.
