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.

Thanks Simon . I will continue to browse for a while and decide about joining up but starting as a new member maybe the way to go. 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.

      That sounds like a good plan, I might even get 5 ot 6 as they are quite small! Simon

      Thanks I’ve no problem with waiting it’s part of the hobby really. I was actually looking at the Ottos on line and was thinking of getting some so to have you guys mention them makes me happy. However it says online that they are happier being in a group rather than just one or two so do you think that I could have say 3 or 4 in my 64ltr tank

      I have 3 tanks at the moment, Tank 1 - bloody mary shrim with neon and ember tetras, though 90% of the shrimp are wild type now! Tank 2 - the old taiwan bee shrimp tank, has 11 mosquito rasbora and 1 killie with wild type cherry shrimp, I have just done the maintenance on that tank and there are definitely shrimp still doing well (I don't feed shrimp in there) but they are clear or brown so VERY difficult to spot! I tested this tank last week and parameters were ideal for taiwan bee (PH6, TDS 140, KH 0-1, GH 5-6 (a bit high)) as it has been since set up. Tank 3 - male betta with wild cherry shrimp, again just done that tank and there are shrimp doing well in there but again, I can ony see them with a strong light and magnifying glass due to their lack of colour. I am looking at maybe just stocking up before winter so may get a job lot of bloody mary shrimp for tank 1 (and discard lots of wilds) and have a  final try with the taiwan bee as the tank 2 is at the moment. The parameters are perfect but the plants are still not nice and green with this substrate, as they were before with the other substrate but obviously shrimp are living in there, albeit not ones I wanted, so I can rule out disease and poisoning. As you say, the taiwan bee are much easier to see so may be preyed on by the fish so I won't buy expensive ones (ebay probably) or a large quantity (if I get any at all of course, though it is now or wait until next year). It would be the last lot I try until the fish die off and the tank is reset with the other substrate! Simon

      So do you have any Taiwan bees going right now Simon? Or just the red cherries/wilds? I forget some of the stuff that you and jayc have.  Depending on the type you get, they could be targeted a lot more than your wilds are currently. Also I’m not too sure how the parameters would work, for neocaridina and taiwan bees. But I’d be very interested to see what comes of it if you try.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      I agree with  crabby, having fish in a tank tends to draw the eye away from the shrimp, and of course the shrimp won't be out and about quite so much! If you can resist the urge to get fish (for now at least) except a few ottocinclus (they don't move that much) that would be best and give your shrimp colony a better chance of growing quicker, but obviously the final decision will be yours! I have fish (tetra) in my oldest tank mainly as that tank is 5 or 6 feet from where I normally sit so wanted something I could see from a distance. I have rasbora and killie in the specialised shrimp tank because I was having difficulty with shrimp in that tank anyway and covid started so I quickly grabbed some fish before lockdown etc so there would be something in that tank - I am thinking I may try and get some taiwan bee shrimmp for that tank next week, before winter gets here, though whether it will work tankwise or with the fish???????????????   Simon
