.... Are you saying that all my images I posted "Will be Deleted from this Forum" and Not being informed sooner and being mislead by the Allowed files and Restrictions ......
NO - your image will not be deleted!! You are not to blame in any way and have no reason to feel bad about it. It is my fault entirely.
BMP is one of the file types listed and MB total is 4MB - so what you did was fine. The fault is mine in the I added BMP as an allowable file type some time ago, so that some Photoboards with Magenta could be exchanged. The intention was to remove it again afterwards, but I decided to just monitor it to see if it got overused.
Even though it defaults to BMP, most users set the save file on TFP to save as JPG, so that is what they usually post and there has not been a problem. Your first few posts were JPG, so I did not even look at future ones from that perspective until Jack noticed they were BMP. A more common problem is people posting very large images, which also use a lot of memory but are also hard to view, as they involve constant scrolling and you only see a small part of the image at any one time. A width of 900 pixels is about the maximum, without it involving scroll bars.
Jack is aware of an earlier occasion when images had to be deleted, but they will always delete the oldest ones first, so yours would be quite safe for some time. It is a shame when images have to be deleted though, as they often tell more of the story than the words do, so that is why we are conscious of the memory aspects of the forum.
