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.

      Only day 2 but I have seen 6 of the new taiwan bee shrimp I got so that is looking hopeful, previously I saw no shrimp the next day after putting them in the tank so it is an improvement, but I am having to not get too excited and order more at this point??? All 15 may be alive but th tank is so densely planted I will never expect to see them all, and anyway they are new to the tank so would expect them to hide a lot more than when they are settled! Stunning shrimp though from an ebay sale, but too small and few to photo at this point, we will have to wait a while for those. I assume from this that maybe they were poisoned by something in the tank before but after a few years of water changes/running that  is not now a problem??? Tank still isn't green and lush like the other tanks though so I definitely wouldn't use that substrate again! Fingers crossed I am back with the Taiwan bee shrimp for good....... Simon

      I am mainly buying the bloody mary shrimps, to top up red shrimp in that old tank but thought I may as well try some taiwan bee in the other tank as it must have been 2 years since I tried, and as I say, there have been wild type red cherry living in that tank! I am getting blacks mainly (and couldn't resist some blue bolt) as they won't be as visible to the fish as reds, but if it goes well I will get some red taiwan bee shrimp at some later date (probably next year though)! I must have fished out about 50 wild type red cherry so far from the old tank to make room for the new ones in that tank! If the taiwan bee work out, then I will have those wild type cherry to remove from that tank as well, there aren't that many though, I don't even feed those shrimps in that tank! I will post updates............ Simon

      Hope you have better luck with this lot.

      I have ordered some bluebolt, black taiwan bee and black KK shrimp (5 of each) to see how this goes now, the parameters are perfect for Caridina shrimp and there have been wild type cherry shrimp living in that tank for about a year or more with no problems, so am going to give it another go! Decided to get a delivery done before winter sets in here, and also getting 20 bloody mary shrimp for the old tank so will try and fish out as many of  the wild types over the next few days to make room for the new red shrimps? I am getting this lot from ebay so will be interesting to see how that goes as it has been years since I used that for any shrimp? I prefer red taiwan bee but will just see how these black ones go first, obviously red will be much more visible to the fish? I guess I can rule out poisoning or disease as a tank issue as there have been shrimp living in the tank for a long time now! It still doesn't look nice and green though with this different substrate, and the fish may be an issue - hopefully the shrimp that are sent will be big enough to reduce the risk of that, the listing states they will be 15mm?

      Otos really do like it in a big group. I had 10 in my 4ft tank once, and they would swim together. The problem with Otos is that, they compete with shrimp for the same food, ie. the biofilm on the surfaces of the tank. If you are okay with that and prepared to feed them regularly when the biofilm runs out, then Otos are great companions to shrimp. Of course they will both eat the same foods, so feeding both together is not difficult. Lot's of blanched veges like zucchinis, peas, carrots.
