    Is it possible to "upgrade" things so that you can include photos in PM's?

    I would like that option also. There have been times I needed to show something to someone and the only way I could do it was to add that pic to photo bucket and then copy the img link and do it that way but that takes up a bunch of limited free space on photo bucket. I'm too cheap to pay for more space :)

    I bought a photo uploader when i bought my dell puter it was only 1.99 extra .I love it as it allows my to blow up and correct pics and then I just put them on my external hard drive .I have spent hours scanning and fixing family photo's that I got out of my dads safety deposit box

    I've changed the settings so that it's possible to add attachments to private messages... however I would ask that this feature is used sparingly, as this site takes up a HUGE amount of space (99% of which are attachments/gallery). :)

    Isnt the point of a forum to share all the info publicly? What help is it to other to send pics of a problem or whatever in a PM?

    Thank you!

    Is there a way you can monitor the usage? If it gets out of hand, warn us, then change it back if necessary....

    There's not an easy way to monitor it, but I can track volume conversation attachments in the admin panel - so I'll keep an eye on it as best I can. As long as it's used very sparingly for the odd private attachment and not for bulk sharing photos then it will hopefully be ok.

    You could always just exchange your email address with who ever you want to share a photo too
