Due to diminishing server disk space and the considerable expense of upgrading, the Forum is going to have to delete old attachments. This has already started, as an emergency measure, with all attachments added prior to 1 JAN 2006 having been deleted. More deletions will take place, and we need your assistance:

1. Please go through the Forum and save important attachments to your computer. If you think an image, a diagramme, etc, is important - save it to your computer. You can do this by clicking on the attachment (to bring it to full size) then clicking on where it says SAVE on the attachment (for images).

2. When you want to include an attachment to a post, please consider using free hosting sites like Photobucket or Flickr (images and movies). Please, only use the attach function if you have no other options.

Thank you!

The Moderating Team

Edited to add: Deletions will start this weekend; please make sure you save important attachments NOW!
