Hi , 

over the years I have posted many pictures and now can’t post anymore as I’m over my limit. I’ve been trying to delete my old pictures and although I keep getting a message to manage my attachments I can’t find a way to delete any . So if anyone has any information on deleting old pictures please let me know. Thanks

Send me a link to a picture you want deleted and I will see if I can fathom it out!

I need to delete many many pictures. I’m 1000% over my limit now I’m not a paid member - I need to be able to go into my attachments and delete from there but I’ve been trying for quite a bit of time and can’t even edit to delete .

I  have looked at 'My Attachments' and can't see any way to delete the picture there and I assume that is where you need to delete them?

If you set up a new account that may work but there will be a limit to the size and quantity you can post, otherwise I guess you can pay the membership as you did previously. From the few picture of yours I saw though, they were too good to want to delete them anyway!

I am going to get a coffee and will mull it over further. I may send yo a private message, all else failing!

Thanks Simon . I have gone back to my oldest posts and deleted some very poor quality pictures. It will take me quite a while to delete from this way.

Even if i were to pay again i think i have too many pictures. It’s been fun reading through my old posts and seeing how many questions i had and how patient the members were with me.

I don't think there is a limit with attacments when you are a paid member, I have looked and can't see a mentioned limit anyway? All it states is a picture limit of 5MB file size!

As it has been yeas since you were on here , personally, I wuld probably set up a new account so you can keep things separate, you would still have your old account and could use the same member picture (similar name) etc, then if you pay the member fee you will have plenty of spare capacity (if there is a limit?). As I say though it would also help you especially with the big gap in the middle, (ie was it a long time ago when I posted about what I am looking for, or since I came back???) as I find that it can be difficult to find stuff I have posted when there is so much I have posted?

Great to have you back on here! Pleae let me know what you want to do and I will help if I can.

Probably will join again but i need to know if i rejoin on my current membership will i be able to post pictures as i have so many. I think i might have had this problem before

I have sent a message to JayC and Cesar to find out if there is a limit for paid members?

I suspect (but don't know) that unless they are deleted from 'my attachments' then it may not count anyway, ie deleting from a post wouldnt help?????

It seems you are right. Although I have deleted some when I check my attachments they are still there although the pictures are no longer in the actual post. I wouldn’t have thought it would be so hard to do especially when I get the message I need to manage my attachments.

As an ex-Moderator, you are in a unique situation Ineke.

As a Mod, you had an unlimited attachment count. 

 

Ideally, we don't want images being deleted from the Forum, as they go towards making a post more interesting and relevant. Imagine if a post said ... "Refer to the image of this shrimp ..." and the picture was gone because the owner had to delete it to recover space.

 

@Cesar is the site owner now. Hopefully he will chime in soon. I have not been a paid member for so long that I don't know if there is a limit or not. If I ever stopped being a Mod on this forum, I will face the same problem you have now. And hopefully, I won't have to go deleting my pictures, because a lot of my pictures are what makes my forum posts relevant.

 

If there is no way around it, you just have to come back as an SKFA Mod. 😄

Ha good try JayC . Not sure if I’m ready to come back as moderator just yet. I did delete a few pictures from a long way back but they weren’t good or clear pictures. I’m sure we will eventually find a way to enable me to post pictures again - well hopefully anyway.

      There isn't much to report on this at the moment, I am 50/50 as to whether this is going to work or not long term. I have seen 2 dead shrimp since adding the new ones and counted about half of the new shrimp bought, that I saw yesterday! This is going to be a long term experiment I guess, the best I hope will happen at this point is that the remaining shrimp survive and reproduce and that new borns born in the tank should be more suited to the environment/water etc. There is an element of the acclimating didn't go as well/to plan as it should with my knowledge/experience, but I did the best I could, so that is what it is!

      How is now the condition of pH?

      Summary from the old thread; I managed to destroy my wonderful Taiwan bee tank with a faulty heater that cooked them. I then set up the tank afresh May 2019 using shrimpking substrate, new plants and wood etc. The tank looked very drab from the start and several batches of new taiwan bee were added and died out instantly. Covid came along so I decided I would give up with the taiwan bee shrimp and get some fish instead about a year later (1 kilie and 12 mosquito rasbora). September 2020 I tried another batch of tawian bee but they fared no better and the tank was still very drab looking (and still is to this very day). I very much doubt it is the substrate but won't be using that again but have aquired a large bag of the old type of substrate I used before, but I really don't know what caused the problem, maybe there was some sort of bacterial infection or I accidently poisoned the shrimp, or there was something on the new plants/wood??? The parameters were always perfect and I have to just accept I will never know? At some later date I dumped some wild type red cherry culls into the tank as food for the killie but he didn't seem to eat them (they were clear/brown so maybe he didn't see them) and they seemed to settle into the tank and bred! Fast forward to a month ago and I decided that now the postal service is better than it had been early in the pandemic, I should maybe try some more taiwan bee as the cherry shrimp had been in there for a year or so and doing well, so I assume whatever the problem was had gone, although the tank is still not as healthy looking as the other tanks using the other substrate! I ordered 15 black shrimps 2 weeks ago and put those in the tank and they seemed to be surviving so earlier this week I order 20 red/blue shrimp and put those in the ttank yesterday. This morning I counted 18 shrimps (about half) so it looks as though it maybe going to work now, the tank is so densely planted that I would never expect to see ALL the live shrimp anyway! The killie fish died a few days ago so he isn't a threat anymore and I doubt the rasboras are either. I am now in the process of fishing out the wild type cherry shrimp as/when I see them! Here is the link to the full thread about the above but I decided to start a fresh thread from here on, https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14523-here-we-go-again/ I will keep this thread updated and get some photos at some stage, though the new shrimp are a bit small at the moment.  Simon

      I think I should start a new thread on this now as this is getting a bit long and it seems to be working now, and to keep it tidier and easy to find/follow! I will attach a link below once done! Simon https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/15621-here-we-go-again-again/

      Hopefully it will settle quite quickly now and it was just everything sorting itself out, and at least you caught it before it caused problems with the fish and shrimps. As you also say, it will take a bit of time for the neneficial bacteria to spread in the new sunstrate as well! The  packaging of the substrate should tell you if there is any routine you should carry out when first using it because of mineral build-up or ammonia, so if the packaging didn't say anything I think it is safe to assume it was not the substrate (Fluval stratum is volcanic soil), and other people may have just assumed it was the substrate without considering anything else if they had a similar episode to yours?
