In progress Storage limit?

Post by Wealh on October 30th 2015, 10:05 pm

The image/gallery storage limit is 20mb forever?

If I add storage, will I have to pay every month?

If I host images on servimg, imgur, etc., Will it take storage?

With this image:



I use almost all my storage?

Servimg does not use storage. Storage is only for attachments and/or the gallery.

Yes, you will have to use credits every month to add more storage, but you also have to use credits for the storage used already.

What do you mean? And what are attachments? downloadable files?

I just want to add: if you upload images on any image hosting - like imgur, photobucket etc. it doesn't count as storage on your forum.
Storage counts only if you upload photos via your forum.

With servimg?

If I don't use attachments, my storage will be full forever?

And if I use attachments, like only one picture, it won't be free?

If you use attachments it counts as storage, you have 20 Mb free storage and when you fill those 20MB you won't be able to add more attachments, until you purchase more storage for your forum with credits.

All attachments (those free 20 Mb) will stay forever, until you delete them from forum.
For example: you use all 20 Mb and you don't wish to pay for more storage, you'll have to delete some attachments from your forum to be able to add new attachments.

Note: Every additional storage ( 50, 100 - 500 Mb) that you buy via forum credits are valid for 1 month.

No, if you use the servimg uploader icon that is in the post editor, it will NOT use any storage space, as stated above ONLY attachments and I think uploading images to the gallery (not 100% sure on this though) uses up your storage space.

If you use the gallery option, it uses storage space. Servimg or whatever image hosting your forum has does not use storage space because they have their own storage space off your forum.
