Re: What to do about Pics?ok.. I am walking in slowly here, please nobody hit me..
We have so many folks addicted to food porn that the bandwidth allowed on our site keeps going over and I keep having to upgrade. I thought to myself that I need to put a small limitation on the size of pictures to try and keep costs down just a little.
Maybe 256k is too small.. I will upgrade it to 500 and see if that suits everyone. The ONLY thing I am trying to eliminate is the uploading of pics that are 2-5 megabytes and we do get some of those.
Everytime a picture is viewed it goes against our allowed bandwidth and when the bandwidth is used up that I have paid for I get this email that says "you must upgrade, immediately" so anyway..
I will raise it to 500 mb and if anyone has trouble with that size let me know and I will raise it a little more. I want to have something reasonable for everyone.
We used 25GB of bandwidth last month and that is exciting but very costly.
I don't want to stop anyone from viewing or uploading pictures, that is one of the things that makes this site great. I just want you guys to try very hard to keep the file size as reasonable as possible and if you know how and can use a site like photobucket or image shack to post pics then that really helps.
Hope that explains things a little better and helps you to understand the logistics of what I try to do and why.
You guys are great.. keep up the good work!
