    Exactly!!!!!!! For the people that love to post pics, why should we get the same amount when there's tons of empty 1MB's sitting there?

    And I love and respect this site highly. If I didn't I wouldn't be posting here and I certainly wouldn't be posting my concerns about the changes that could effect my enjoyment. I'm just trying to find a solution, not cause a problem.

    Oh, and can I have your 1MB then if you're not going to use it?

    Edit: And I'm going to try hosting my pics thru photobucket, etc. I was just looking for suggestions. And also, I have no problem making a donation. I'm just striving to get questions answered.

    I'm not sure what the max is, is it 1MB now for regular members? If so, who decided 1MB would be the limit since 1MB is a really a small amount (3 pics max?). How about 10MB for everyone, and 100MB for silver, and 500MB for gold or something. Just a suggestion, but I'm sure the admins here already had a big discussion and decided that what they have set now was the best...

    I'm cool with it, however it kinda would suck when you search the archives and stickies and all the how to pics and other cool pics have been removed because the user needed more space..

    I Support ClubWRX
    yeah sure while your at it I routinely short shift my car at around 2500 rpms.....that leaves atleast 4k not being used..feel free to rev yours up to 10.5k using my left over

    When I apply my deorderant there always seems to be a little bit left on the top that never really makes it way onto my arm pit....can i get your PO box....you can have that to.

    It's common for me to leave a sip or two in whatever container I'm drinking out of....Once I compile an 2 gallon bottle of ice teas and coke....that will be heading your way.


    Grrr....i'll probaly end up editing this for niceness.....but I had to get this out of my system....no harm ment.

    Guys, the fewer pics that are "Attached" the more free space the server has, and the faster the website runs, loads, etc. Just link from picture hosting websites...that's why they exist.

    Plus attaching limits how many threads can have the same pics. Many times two different threads require the same image and attaching only allows the pic in one thread.

    If you want more space, donate.
    If you love clubWRX and want to make Tim's life easier, donate.

    If you are just here casually, dont donate.
    If you think that donations are communist, dont donate.

    I post on S2Ki.com, and ClubRSX periodically. I am not a premium member, i dont donate, and i dont complain about missing out on some cool features (sig pics, unrated boards, item discounts, etc).

    I spend most of my day on ClubWRX, i love this place, and the community, so i am a Gold member.

    Let's just try and keep this respectful. Tim has done a lot for us. Let's give him some support (either financial, or just by being nice and understanding).

    Thats why it's a DONATION, theres no obligation to give if you don't want to. I think the 1MB storage space seems like an inconvenience, but so are horrendous loading times and the site being down. I guess you have to trade one outcome for the other. I'd rather host my pics than have site outages. Eitherway, if you want to give, then give, if you don't, don't.

    I'd think it'd be a much better idea to just use a different host. It'll save plenty of bandwidth and PLENTY of free picture host sites exist.

    I'm not really talking about the web space each member has. I'm more worry about the lost of information in the archives from people deleting pics so they can make room for newer pics and at the same time don't donate...

    i see where speedette, is coming from with her yearbook but it isnt that hard to just sign up for a FREE image hosting site for these pics, hell if u run over one ill make one and host some of the old ones that arent gonna get updated.

    and Magikman i like how ur so concerned about losing your previlages about posting on a wrx forum when u dont own one, so u showing lots of pics about ur updates would be better suited for a LS1 forum

    Nasioc doesnt let u upload pictures on their site at all and they still seem to be showing pics of their cars just fine.

    however much space is free, is enough, and money shouldnt be a option for anyone here, yes i understand that some people dont make that much, but if its such a big deal i think u can save the 33 cents a day that it would cost u to be a gold member

    or 3 cents a for the basic or 9 cents for silver

    A very ignorant comment imo, you dont need to own a wrx to be an active member here

    fact of the matter is that a lot of the well established members heres dont even own subarus anymore and a lot of the members here have never owned one.

    however much space is free, is enough
    1) I didn't know about the (free) web-hosting sites until this thread. See above posts.

    2) You don't have to own a WRX to be a fan or enjoy posting here!!!! Lots of members still post here who don't own WRXes (i.e. dsel and Southpaw to name a couple)

    3) I think most people are just a little upset because there was NO WARNING that this was going to happen and nothing notifying us of the upcoming changes, so they are seeking answers.

    4) And I agree that I'm just worried people will start deleting old pics to make room, and these could be very useful pics accompanying the technological threads.

    5) And you can't really compare ClubWRX to any other forum, we are in our own element.

    I Support ClubWRX
    Thank you guys for making sense of this. I honestly don't mind providing more space for people to post, but even if I increased the quota for everyone on the web I will most likely still offer something better for the supporting members, and because we're not in the business of selling printable pictures etc we will never be able to provide what other websites are offering for free. I'm happy to see that more and more people are open to donate, and I am still deciding whether or not its necessary to boost the members' quotas. Space is cheap so it's nothing worth arguing about, I just wanted people to keep the size of their avatars and attachments to the minumum so the pages could load faster.

    yes i know that but like other people said no one is forceing him to stay here and post. i didnt want it to come out that he has to own one to post, but he is also making the biggest deal about it
