    So the main question is... is using an off site storage required?
    No. It is just a way to minimize your storage usage and maximize the size of your pics. Plus it is a way for folks who have exceeded their storage limit to still post images for us to enjoy. That's all.

    Can you delete all my pictures then? I could edit every post I've made, removing the pic from the post, but that wouldn't remove the pic from the server. I think most of the pics I've posted have come from Google search. And they aren't important enough to keep posted in old threads that nobody looks at.

    Edit: Oooh, nevermind, I found the place to delete them! Settings - Attachments
    I had over 2 MB of crap posted! LOL!

Members always ask how to do this so Tweak made a nice tutorial on how to. You can use it or not. However at some point if you upload alot there is naturally a limit at some point. I set these high because i like to see pics but like all things there is a tradeoff (speed). The file host way has its pluses because the images are large , you shouldn 't hit your quota and it doesn't slow the site down. The downside is that you have to upload them to a site ( I use picasa - it is free) and if you delete your account the images go bye-bye on the site. It is up to you which way you do it, but i would hate to see someone reach their quota and stop posting their pics. I want to seev them!

    PS: I am writing this on my phone in bed while i should be sleeping, so forgive any mistakes. Thanks!
    Thanks Chris and others for replying here, I don't know the limit but now it is good to know you've set the limits higher than most forums. So far the server hosting this forum doesn't seem to suffer from speed issues that I've noticed but as growth continues it may occur so anything that helps lessen the load is a great idea.

    I was just in looking at the Paid Subscriptions area, and it mentions limits:

    Premium member: $12.00 year
    Bigger Avatar - from 80x80 to 150x150, Bigger Signature - from 430x100 to 600x144, More Photos - from 40 to 100, More Messages - from 50 to 300

    Lifetime member: $30.00 for 30 years
    Bigger Avatar - from 80x80 to 150x150, Bigger Signature - from 430x100 to 600x144, Bigger Profile Pic from 100x100 to 200x200, More Photos - from 40 to 100, More Messages - from 50 to 350

    Unless you click on the link though, you don't know there are limits, until you hit them. I did go to subscribe, but it only takes PayPal. I don't have that either. Nevertheless, the paid subscriptions should be mentioned in this thread, just for the messages alone! Fifty messages is nothing! I was getting close to the limit (before deleting them all) just from a few conversations.

    And, yes, I agree with the "lessen the load" scenario. Now that I know I can manage attachments at my end, I can still post images, but I won't leave them up forever and ever. I deleted all but two images. The people for whom the pictures were for have seen them.

    Your contribution of information is greatly appreciated.

    As for the messages, I can see PM's growing beyond 50 rather easily. I've added the info to the original post.

    Added a video to the end of the first post that VERY quickly shows what this looks like when done as outlined above.

    Thanks,

    I tried to add a pic to my post and was unable. When I tried to upload I didn't get the upload button. When I copied the url link from photobucket and entered it I got the "error: Invalid URL" message.
