AS> Screenshots being stripped from the messages unless it all fits in 25Kb, In the case of TBUDL, this seems to be happening regardless of size. I have looked but the settings don't specify to do that. The hosting server has shifted twice since we started to use the current rack. I am not necessarily confident that the settings have ported correctly. AS> famous "Current version is 8.0.18 | 'Using TBUDL' information" footer AS> attached to all messages... Perhaps it is time for a maintenance? This footer used to be maintained by admins every time a new release came from RITlabs, often with a slight lag. Max asked to control this automatically and this was being done for a while. Then they stopped updating it. I guess it's down to me again. (I am the sole admin and mod these days, everyone else having resigned from the list). Max took it over because I was updating it when the MSI was released to TBBETA, not in new the loop otherwise as to when a particular version became the current release. AS> Things that come to mind, in no particular order: AS> * Increase size limits for attachments. TBBETA has a 75kb limit and TBUDL 25kb. I suggest 150 for TBBETA and 100 for TBUDL. Thoughts?
