and worst of all .. this time the forum got me to "do it" to myself.

I bit the bullet and deleted attachments per instruction to clear the cache.

all image links in all posts and threads that i have posted are gone.

20 pages of uploads are still in the attachment manager.

i have 1.35mb of 75mb uploaded. showing now in that manager.
20 pages..1.35mb??

The good news is.. I can post images again..

Hey Chris

Not quite sure what you are saying; is it that 75MB isn't enough space?


Did management tell you to delete all the images???

Well Kipper he has the same problem I had along with a lot of others and that's the Thumbs Cache isn't clearing out and it's blocking people from uploading Pictures. MarshallR had to go into my account and delete it manually. Apparently this isn't working automatically like it's supposed to do.

75mb..is a ton of space... wallpapers for example are about 1.5mb @ 1920x1080

No management did not.

This was an attempt to clean the thumbnails trapped in the threads.
The instructions were in general ... to clear the cache ... i asked..
waited..asked again .. waited ..
saw that the upload was increased and that i could upload 'an' image..
so i went for it ... to my horror....ok..well not horror..but nothing that
made me lol.

the images are in the manager... wha? but not in the posts.
the attachments are deleted? or ... are they ??

im not quite sure what i am saying either.... my thinking
requires at least a whisper of logic ... i see none.

Some game, some oc, some mod...all ROG.
I find gaming boring beyond belief .. the speed of snail sex.
Any game is obsolete when the artists complete it..its beat.
Project:Black&Red was the greatest game ever played..
and may have no last level.......maybe.

If you view it 100 times you will never see it all ...
until you look from the other side of the mirrors
in a row for the depth ... and layers ...
and even then ... you would have to know who
was who and what was what to begin to
see the first.... but that was then .. this is now.

Im saying. It is a New ROG. Im ready for a New Game.
Is there a place HERE for it ??
I thought members would join in with panels...
or forward ideas .. and the graFX ROGrz could have at it...
or even add a panel.. like a wallpaper..but smaller..
a rolling member ROGtoon......like we do with text..at times.

there is no lack of art talent here ... or interest, evidenced
by the wllppr contest....wow.

no matter -- there are n00bs to help and new members to welcome.
and i bet i learn at least 10 things a day here reading.

I find emotion to be weakness. Feelings are rarely real without logic.
The lack of logic ... leaves only how you feel about what we
can only guess at....leaving one clueless to reality...... new game ?

hahahah...oooooooooohh...im so glad you cleared that up for me chris..hahahaha
sorry brother...
I think i must have a ROGbar hangover... shame too..
cuz i love do'n my drinking here...hehe...take it light...it matters not.

Edit: thnx.

Well now you have it from the Master Himself! :p Now ROG On as he would put it...:eek:

It all perfectly clear now, or maybe not. I will read it again, maybe three more times. LOL

Chris, you are a crackup. LOL

is this something with the type of forum hosting we're using or just changes to the forum rules/guidelines imposing these restrictions?

Mason, I haven't used vB in a long time(like 3 or 4 years) and it was garbage then. I switched to Simple Machine Forums of which I permanently shut the doors on last year and I never regretted the switch nether did my users. it was a lot better built, easier to administer, and with it being Open Source there were a lot of Mods for free that really enhanced the workings of it along with the style. Another benefit was I could use just about what ever DB server I wanted just by altering the engine configuration. I wasn't stuck with MySQL only.

... i think the point is .... it IS 'fixed'.

..The forum does, better than any other, what
95% of those coming here need it to do. Help.

...The next 4.999% ? Thats us. Here to Help
and ROG(Mod-OC-Game-Enthusiast)

...The last .001% ? Thats where the rest of the fun lives....

It IS a new ROG...afterall.

I apologize to any it is due for excessive bleating
that was corrected.c.
