There is a limit to the amount of files you can attach to this board. Follow this link: http://busaustralia.com/forum/ucp.php?i ... ttachments and delete some attachments. Or, alternatively, stop uploading images directly to the board and use an image hosting site (like http://www.flickr.com/ or http://www.picasaweb.google.com/) to display pictures on this board.

Sorry, I pretty sure you can't do that. Though, that would be useful if the board software was able to do that.

That is rather strange.

This message has appeared previously and since then we have monitored this rather closely and have regularly progressively deleted the oldest attachments.

When I looked a few minutes ago we were nowhere near as high as we have been on some occasions in the past with 1.95 GIB in use out of 2 GIB.

I then deleted some 50 old attachments which should have seen a reduction but it did not go down. Possibly another problem related to the move?

The last attachment was added at 2.17pm today.

Please keep us informed if it is still not possble to add new attachments.

I have gone through the link provided and deleted quite a large number of pics posted by me that have been up for a good 6mnths or more.

Maybe the quota is also a limit as to how many pics any one board member can post?

I doubt it.

But the number of attachments has for some unknown reason dropped quite a bit since then and quite a few more attachments have been added since 4.14pm when I posted presvioulsy.

I also increased the quota from 2gb to 2.5gb as a quick fix yesterday.
