    I kinda thought pic size was the issue, so whenever I upload I try to cut the resolution down to 640 x 480 before posting cause you really can't tell the difference on here anyway. Besides using "Paint" or any other graphics program to resize your pics there's another easy alternative built right into most of our phones. You can simply set your phones camera resolution to a lower value before taking your pictures and you won't have to resize them.

    Go to the Google Play store app on your phone and search for picture resize - should be a bunch there.

    I had a feeling the pics were causing the bandwidth issue..large threads with many pics were the bane of the old site as well..you probably just need to delete all the pic piggy's like the scavenger hunt ........

    Not a ‘droid user, sorry.

As far as I know you can only do 1 pic at a time and re-save it at the smaller size, no batch resizing of multiple pics. I would assume there is a program out there that can do batch resizing?

    Brad is correct. Upgrade has nothing to do with the picture issue.
    I set a limit on how big a picture can be uploaded to the board.
    It was previously unlimited, that didn't work out very well.

    Ditto that, thank you for what you do and thank Rock River also. Keep up the good work.

    Still working on the picture issue.
    You CAN post pictures, just not giant ones.

    There were some members apparently uploading pics directly from cameras/phones in SUPER HIGH RESOLUTION where each picture was over 10MB in size.
    Every time those pics were viewed - even as a thumbnail inside a discussion - it would eat up obscene amounts of bandwidth.
    For now, all pics must be under 1MB & will likely stay that way.

    The most recent upgrade is outlined here (edited to remove site owner specific info):

    I believe the two are mutually exclusive. There hasn't been any update I'm aware of in regards to our data usage issue.

    I'm assuming after the upgrade pics will be allowed again.
