This "new improved" attachment system isn't looking like an improvement at the moment!!
Hi David, firstly, thanks for asking this question, I would much rather you ask than don't. The attachment system is certainly not improved over the old one, however, it will attach and download faster, but the functions are exactly the same. We can quite easily allow permanent attachments to be uploaded more than once, but this is just a terrible waste of very limited resources and cash. Therefore we have to make compromises, however, I am willing to look at the linking issue to find a resolution.
The reason for being able to see your attachments in your profile is so that when you reach your maximum allocation of attachment storage space, you are forced to delete attachments off. But by the trend we have seen so far, this is a long way off as our storage space is still massive. But as we grow so does the attachment databases and by some multiplier!! So we members must have a way to delete them off other than an Admin using the brutal way of pruning by x,y,z date and pressing mass delete from all accounts and forums lounges.
Stick in there, Ill find a reliable and efficient way... So in the mean time, please tell me the possible reasons as to where and why you would need to link to the image so I can make sure we get it right first time.
Thanks again for asking this...
