Why does the file size allowed keep changing as I post pictures on the site?

Recommended Posts

I started out with 60kb, then it was 0.04mb and now its 0.02mb. With it going lower and lower will I just not be able to post pictures anymore?

Is there a way to put pictures on my log or this site without worrying about file size besides posting the URL to the picture?

I would suggest using Imgur, personally. You can upload your images there for free, and they provide the BBCode that you need to paste into your posts here in order for the images to display properly.

This is all that I've ever used, since @Admin is the one who has to pay for the costs of hosting images on TamaTalk itself, and as I've said in another thread, I feel that that's better off going towards the forum itself. :)

For anyone who goes with this: Do try to be careful about the filesizes of your images, though, as some users are on mobile connections, and nobody likes their data getting chewed through by images that could've been a quarter of their posted size and still been perfectly visible and readable. :lol:

The settings on the forum are set to allow for a max of 120 kB per account...  So as you upload files the limit starts to fill up.  I know...  I know...  That isn't much space.  It is intended more for singature images and stuff versus images for posts.  The reason is that files can add up quickly and, as Penguin-keeper mentioned, it affects both the costs of maintaining the site as well as the experience for people browsing the site on mobile or other slower internet connections.  Imgur and others like it really are the best balance for all involved...  You get all the images you want hosted, TT doen't have to shoulder the storage costs of tons of large images and people viewing the site still get to see the images (though sometimes slowly depending on image size and connection speed).

      Hey welcome to my blog fellow Llamas!! I have a Tamagotchi On, Wonder Garden edition, and I am currently on generation 10! I have every location but sports plaza. I have the Llama fluff gene for 8 generation (lucky meeee!) and I currently have twin girls. I have questions about the tamagotchi app that can connect with your tamagotchi. Is it true you can marry people there and then they will come back to you tamagotchi as a new character? I'm confused. Do they have sanrio characters in the app on events? Can I connect to the japenese version on my english tamagotchi.

      I know there have been quite a few manga series based on Tamagotchi. Were any officially released in English?
      Do any of you read scans/scanlations of them online? I'd love to find a website that has them. I haven't looked extensively yet, but I'm sure they're out there.

      Is it possible to unlock any of the games on the Tamagotchi Friends without connecting with any other TMGC:Friends? (It's an EU version)
      I'm getting bored of the 2 games I know how to play.

      Recently I've been debating on purchasing a AngelScope virtual pet. Whenever I look up any information on it though, there's very little on it. One being from this site many years ago stating that it's a fortune teller? So I was hoping to make a more recent post on it and see if anyone has anymore information on it! Any bit helps! 
      One of my own personal questions is, what is the purpose of the three holes on the side of it?
      Thank you!
