No attachments in Anything Goes?

Postby Axis » August 12th, 2012, 12:34 pm

I wanted to start a self-pic marathon topic in Anything Goes but it seems that attachments aren't allowed or even given as an option in that area? Am I somewhat blind to a fact or is it disabled for a reason?

The option is disabled all-right. It's probably so that nothing gets too out of hand since it is "Anything Goes".

That makes sense, oh well, it would be cool if it could be activated for a test run or something. Has there been a bad experience with attachments there or something? Well it's no biggie either way.

The reason for this is pretty simple - every attachment on the forum uses up server resources, which aren't unlimited. I've made file hosting (attachments) available as a service to those who are working on/contributing to DKC projects, artwork, collections, etc... basically anything that would be appreciated by the DKC fan community. I'm happy to provide a space on the forum for discussion outside of the scope of Donkey Kong Country, but I want to reserve our storage space and other such finite server resources for material truly relevant to DKC Atlas, and valuable to DKC fans everywhere. :)

So axis, what is the concept behind this 'self-pic marathon' topic you speak of? Just curious.

Remember - you can always host images, etc. at any of the dozens of free image hosting services out there.

Yeah, I considered the second option of just placing a link to fulfill what I wanted. I kinda wanted to beat some forum shy because I believe everybody here is a monkey until I see some proof....real life pictures! I felt the thread would bring some demand in order to have get to know each other better. I don't really need a special thread with attachments privilege or anything, posting links can be just fine.

Thanks for your response. :dixiehappy:

Is this topic anything like what you're talking about? :funky:

Remember also that you can place images in your post using the img tag - they don't have to be attached/hosted by DKC Atlas to show up in the topic. ;)

Oh cool, for some reason I couldn't find it. I've been digging up old topics for the past few days too.

Thanks for the tag reminder too, that's something worthy of keeping in your head.
