Attachments pruned, new filesize limit set

The attachment folder is becoming a beast that cannot be fed.

It ran out of space again, so I had to prune it. Unfortunately, only deleting old ones (older than 100 days) gained me less than 10 megs. So, I had to prune by filesize, so everything larger than a megabyte has been pruned.

I have to put it on a diet so to speak, so from now on, the filesize limit for attachments is 600KB per file, four files max per post with a total size of 2 megs per post.  I know that's a little small, but we're talking shared space here. If you want to put up hig-res images, please use Imasgeshackl or Flickr or something.

How big is the attachment folder anyways?  The vast majority of images I see on SFO are not attachments - in fact I see very few posts ever really using attachments (unless I'm totally missing a topic that 95% of attachments are used in) so that leads me to believe that the folder size is set pretty low (at least comparing the folder sizes on the KLA, and that used shared space for the longest time as well, during it's peak activity).

Attachments are files you can attach to your post before you post them.  If you click on "Additional Options" just under where you type in your text to post you have the option to attach files.  However, these will be thumbnailed in your post unless the user clicks on the attachment, then the full res version will appear.
