Upload limits for attachments
In the past, our upload limits have been fairly restricted...the high cost of bandwidth has been the reason cited. It was fair, I suppose considering that this place was very active and it wasn't uncommon to see 10 new threads in each forum everyday and many more replies to each. However, times have changed. From what I can make out, the forum has slowed down (I have no real evidence but perhaps you can confirm this?). I also assume that the cost of storage space has gone down in the last 5 odd years. This might make the overall cost of increasing the storage limit for users less than Neo might have then, probably accurately, thought it to be.
If feasible, can you increase the storage limit for users? If the cost is still prohibitively igh, perhaps the increase can be based on the post count (Not as a reward or anything, just using it as a yardstick for judging how frequently a user is online here....for example, I have about 1500 odd posts despite probably having 3 times that post count in the CC lounge. Therefore, I would probably need more space than someone who has been active here for a week or a 100 odd posts).
What that will let me do is post recordings specifically here instead of posting on soundclick where other people can see it as well...eg if I try to help out with a guitar lesson, I might want to post a small recording to illustrate a point. This also allows IGT to retain the recording as part of the lesson instead of relying on external links from soundclick (or even worse, Rapidshare) to complete a lesson.
Just an idea.
p.s.- Also, music file extensions are not allowed as uploads as of now which seems a little silly.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
