Help us out!

Those of you who use the attachment system, this is a plea for help. Our database size is growing and growing, with attachments being a large part of the size. If you're able, please prune out old pictures that are not of an informative nature. You can do this by going to your UserCP and then at the bottom, click on Attachments.

database is growing

I had a look in Chit & Chit and all my old Topics are long gone now and have been autodeleted by now.

Do you know there are eight pages of Threads, at lest four can be pruned out, new topics are opened daily.

Im not one for opening many Threads myself.

Pruning is on the To Do list too. Attachments are just a major part of the problem. You can also help by using an outside image host or PT's image hosting.
