    I have had to apply some restrictions on future image attachments. This is because over the past 14 days the total number of images uploaded have a combined size of over 400Mb. The forums storage is finite. The changes are as follows:
    Image file size down to 1Mb (from 2Mb)
    Image size down to 800px x 600px (from unlimited)

    An observation; it would make a lot more sense to add an image attachment as a thumbnail to a post (as opposed to the full sized image) as the initial page loading will be substantially faster and the image won't be "in-ya-face" when opening the page. If a member wants to view the image it's a simple case of clicking on the image thumb.
