DO NOT upload duplicate attachments

#1

Please do not upload the same image on the board over and over. It just wastes precious server space.

I know a few members like to use "welcome" images in posts when they welcome a new person to the website, however the problem with this is each time you upload the same image as an attachment it creates a duplicate copy which uses up disk space on the server.

The suggested workaround is to upload your welcome image to an image hosting website and link it here each time with img tags.
Example:

Code: Select all

[img]https://IMAGEURLHERE[/img]
Example of duplicate images:

Will stop using my welcome image, and just type out a welcome. All to save space. Thanks for letting us know.

Well you could host the image elsewhere and still use it to welcome people using the img tags. Anyways the point is I'm trying to eliminate duplicate photos to save space as we grow.

Hope I didn't sound too harsh. I'm not trying too ruin anybody's fun.

Yup, that's the reason I started using PhotoBucket and linking my image to that.

What are good photo storage sites? I have Google Photos and a basic Dropbox. I didn't know if there was something better.
