[Suggestion] Allow Attachments through PMs?

Well, that's all there is to the suggestion really. Let us attach stuff in our PMs. LOL

Two problems with that. First of all, allowing attachments through PMs increases the potential for abuse, and since PM attachments are not posted publically, they would be much more trouble to regulate. Second of all:

quote:
Total attachments: 4376 (140.44 MB)

That adds to the trouble that it takes to move the forums from server to server in case of an emergency, and that's only from public attachments. Allowing private attachments would inflate that number even more. Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think that would work here.

Ahhh. I was under the impression that the per-user limit applied to both PMs and posts. My error.

WBB does also, but I disabled that feature because I think it would be more trouble than it's worth, at least on these forums (see above). If we used IPB, I would still choose to disable PM attachments.
