Right, I removed those ones. Looks like it is some old stuff. Like we recommend, a host is better for a lot of things. Attachment space is for an avatar mainly.

Weirdly, there is no link on any profile for me to view member uploads, hence why the link you sent was the "my" link (So, I was taken to a page of contest banners and graphics :laugh:). 

Sorted the  issue now hopefully.

I'd like to post some pictures but my space is all used up (only 100kb), I was in the page of attachment but I was unable to figure out how

to delete one or all of the pictures.....by the way, would the admin rise my attachment space a little bit?? 100kb is too little

I deleted that attachment for you. But it is best to use another site for hosting like the others have mentioned.

Hi

What posts did you attach them to? I think I can only remove them from the original posts. I'll take a look at your activity history, but if you could link them here later in case I do miss any!

Oookay, it looks like there's a bug, attachments are currently not deletable! Admin are looking into this problem!

Hi! Is it still down?
I also accidently added an attachment when was introducing myself here.
Then I wanted to update the post and delete the uploaded image and use a linked one, but deleting of the image didn't work.  
So basically every time when I update a post I see that the uploaded image is gone in editor. Then I end editing and the image is still there.

The issue still exists but I have a workaround for it for now. I've taken care of BrickAA's errant image.

Thank you! Now the post looks correctly.
I'll be careful with attachments.

can some of the admins/moderators take a look at this? either remove the attachement option entirely or just add a disclaimer to it like "this isnt ment to store your moc pictures". every single new user stumbles across this so something needs to be done @Hinckley!

It is in the site FAQ. While it has been a very long time since I joined, I am sure there were more places it was mentioned also.

Also, one of the very clear lines in the New Member Section (from a 2014 thread, 5 years before your sign-up date) is "Eurobricks does not act as an image hosting site

The whole subforum disappears after you make 10 posts, but before that it sits right at the top of the forum index and asks you to "PLEASE READ".

I can also guarantee that even if it does have a warning on the uploader, people will still ignore it. As they ignore the many FAQs and help threads that already exist.

Avatar images mostly. Or some LDD files when people used to share those and there wasn't a secure/reliable host for that sort of data. These days we can all go use Rebrickable or somewhere else, but back in the day there wasn't those options.

(I feel like a fossil..)

ahh ok thank you then. back then the restriction to only images wasnt there then i guess. this probably only came later with an update of the forums software right? just curious.

That is an admin question :laugh:. There have been many changes to the software but as a moderator, I'm not privy too them, not that I would understand most of it! The IT pros run that side of things.
