Evan. good to hear from you.
We need to ensure that his doesn't happen again. Here are some suggestions:
1) cut out the post rating system - this has encouraged some posters to post 'waste of space' posts just to get to a higher rating
2) limit the size of posts to a certain number of characters - this will have implications for the I Was An Artiste forum which could be solved, in part, by posters posting links to their works of 'art' hosted on other (free) web sites
3) The same goes for pictures. Only allow links for pictures that are hosted on other servers - i am sure that pictures make up the bulk of the 70Gb
I know that these might be considered to be drastic actions but think about the choices:
1) TW closes down completely
2) TW becomes a subscription service
It has been mentioned in the last few weeks - we have to take on greater responsibility for the quality of what we post (I know, was this post really necessary!)
Those Official Crap Threads could go for a start!
Tell them they can laugh at me
