hello.. i can *certainly* see the reason why there is a limitation of 100kb to upload images on the server, but if there was a way to increase this a bit and possibly influence people to not direct link their images, i think it would have its benefits. in threads such as "post your pc", "post your picture", and "post your chix" going through them i have found that over half of them seem to be broken links (esp. gib). if they were message attachments instead, it would never be a broken link, and thus not negate the whole reason for having those threads.
like i said, i realize this may not be possible with your given web hosting space etc, but if you feel like it could be done easily, i feel it would be very beneficial
