Attaching a image or file to a message.

Post by cutter » Sat Dec 14, 2002 7:41 pm

Hello all,

There are situations where a member would want to attach a image or a file to one of their messages. This may be a photo of a album cover or a old turntable. Or, perhaps a person selling a large group of records would want to attach a list of the records (compressed or text files).

This can easily be accomplished when posting a message as a registered member. Simply press the attachment button when posting a message and upload the file or image from your computer.

There are certain size and file extensions limitations in place. This is to prevent extremely large files from being uploaded to this message board. The current ceiling for file size is 40kb's. For linking to an "off-site" location, the image should not exceed 400x400 pixels. If you have a large file that exceeds the limitations and would like to include it in your message, send the board's administrator an e-mail or private message explaining the situation. Exceptions to the size rules, will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

We do ask that any file uploaded, be of good taste and quality. Any EXTREMELY pornographic images, images in EXTREMELY bad taste, or files that may contain harmful instructions to a viewers computer, will be removed immediately.

If you have any questions or concerns about the attacment of files within a message, simply contact this board's administrator.

Regards,

The maximum allowable size for photo attachments has been increased to:

600 x 600 pixels

60KB

The RCG discourages links to photos hosted on outside websites. The links frequently disappear or become 'dead' over time, leading to discontinuity in the threads. It is preferred that the image be attached directly to your message.
