No I did in fact see that bit of text in the FAQ. I'm not asking to be able to host pictures or anything. Look, as of now I have uploaded 2x SR 3D model files approx. 10 KB each. So that means I can only upload 10 model files on this website for as long as I live! You think I'm not going to build more than 10 MOC's for the next 80 years of my life?
Pictures or other file types, it all consumes bandwidth. You're going to get a little more upload space as you progress through the ranks
. But the point remains that EB should not be used to host files.
I can see your problem on the bandwith though, but it has got to be a really weak server to be needed to limit the file size that much. It doesn't say anywhere in your FAQ which website is good for file hosting. I know I could do some research my self (and probably wouldn't take more than 5 min), but you could give some suggestions...
From my PoV you sound a little angry, I didn't want to anger you (or the mods) but a 100KB is still rather limited...
It's not about the 'strength' of the server, but the cost
of the bandwidth for a server hosting a forum run by volunteers. Suggestions for image-hosting sites are given in the FAQ
. I don't have any suggestions for uploading non-picture files.
