Attachment storage is at capacity....EVERYONE PLEASE READ THIS STICKY ABOUT ATTACHMENTS

Post by Pugsy » Wed Feb 09, 2022 9:14 pm

Well....looks like the closet is full again...can't attach images because storage capacity has been reached ....again.
I never heard back from Carolyn when it happened a short while ago and I notified her.

So...everyone go to your profiles and manually remove your old attachments again.

Thank you in advance...

Also we need to be more upfront telling newbies to not post (using the attachment feature) a gazillion images and encourage them to remove the ones we don't need.

Anyone who doesn't know what I am talking about....go to your user control panel and click on the "manage attachments" on the left side. You will then see all the attachments you have uploaded and stored on the forum server.
Just put a check mark in any old ones and then delete them.

dang it! and i JUST told a newbie to do the attachment thing.

also, for the rest of you, www.imgur.com is an image hosting site that is free. (if this is no longer the case, i'm sure someone will let me know.)

you upload your picture there and post a link to it here. it might sound confusing and may take some practice, but it works.

find the image you want at imgur. click on it and choose jpg. come back here and use the little landscape pic above, between what looks like an asterisk and a chain. then put drop your image there.

as i say, takes a bit of practice but it works.

(also i prolly shouldn't try to explain this after two glasses of wine!)
people say i'm self absorbed.
but that's enough about them.

Anyone who has and doesn't know how to check or clear out attachments...

Click on your profile name at the top right of the page.
Then click on "user control panel"
Then look on the left side tabs and click on "manage attachments"
From there you can put check marks in any attachments you want to delete from storage and then down at the bottom you can find the menu for "delete items checked" thing.

Hey folks....it's full again.
Can some of you go clean out your attachment folder?
If it has been a month or so and your topic is dead...they won't be of any benefit anyway.

May 4.....the forum storage is again full.

Everyone...if you have old posts using the attachment feature please go to your profile and under "manage attachments" just delete the old ones.

Right now no one can post images of their reports using the attachment feature.

The is an area that I can't get to and delete them myself.
I can delete them from a post but that won't fix the problem....they have to be deleted from the forum storage area and that can only be done by you via the manage attachment feature in your profile.

How many attachments should I keep on my account? I currently have 11, going back to 05/25/20022
Your account is fine. Not very many image attachments and all are very recent anyway.

The warning is mainly for people who have posted a bunch of useless images (we maybe asked for the images to be redone in a better format) and/or images are quite old and no longer useful...like maybe 6 months old or older.

Once you no longer need to share your images for any reason....then you can maybe clean things up a bit.

There are people with hundreds of attachments and they no longer come here so they are definitely no longer useful or needed. Those are the people I would like to strangle. :lol: As they are the ones hogging up the storage.

Is the images posted on imgur.com private, or can anyone on the internet see them?

They can't be private, or nobody here could see them either.

But without the URL, there is no way that they can be readily retrieved. Add to that, don't use an account you use for other (personal) images and don't include sensative information in your posted images.

anyone that has the link can see them. take a look at jumblegirl's oscar graph thread. she supplies the link, we click and go see 'em.
people say i'm self absorbed.
but that's enough about them.

You know I don't know the answer to that question.
Nor do I know if we make it private but then WE provide a link to the image if others can see it or not.
Even if they (others on imgur) could access the images I don't know why they would want to as they wouldn't really know what they were looking at anyway.

I have always made it a point, though, to never put anything out there that has potentially anything on it that is personally identifiable anything on the images.
If I did for some reason put it out there then it would only be available a very short time.

Technically, anybody in the Internet has access to it.
Practically, only the people who have the link (those on CPAPTalk) have access to it.

One can't just go to imgur and display your images, one needs a link.

Picture a library with millions of books sorted in without order.

I want you to have access to one of my books so I give your the link (the link being its location), you can then go get the book.

But anybody else who wants my book simply can't look at it because they have no idea where amongst the millions of books it it. Their only option is to go look at a book; is this it, no; look at another book, is this it, no; millions of times.

And even then they would not know it's mine, because there is no information in it, linking it to me.

Well the relief was short lived.
The attachment storage is full again.

Most of the offenders are no longer active here on the forum. They came, posted pictures of whatever and left.

I can't do anything about it. I don't have access to what I would need access to so that I could manually clean out the old files which really aren't needed anymore.

People are just going to have to use some other photo hosting website like we used to do years ago before we could even do attachments.

Anyone still here and you have used the attachment storage feature and the image is no longer relevant....clean out your attachment storage please. It will help a little bit but short term I know.

Again...nothing I can do about it. I have emailed Carolyn several times and also sent her PMs in the past.
I didn't get a response.

If you all want to send her a PM and complain....by all means go ahead. I give up.
