Default Attachments

As some of you may know, the board software allows attachments to be placed in posts. There was some concern over the huge potential for abuse, such as people attaching illegal or copyrighted images, or even infected files. For this reason, we chose to allow it only for moderators and administrators.

We've since discovered that the software will also allow us to moderate attachments the same way we can moderate posts. With this in mind, we've decided to open it up to our members, with moderation in effect. This means that you will now be able to post attachments, but they will have to be approved by one of us before the rest of the world can see them.

There is a global limit on the server space, as well as size limits on individual attachments. We may increase these limits if we determine it to be necessary, but please make an effort to resize your attachments before you ask us to do this.

Also, please don't post anything offensive, copyrighted, illegal, or infected. Offenders will be warned, have their attachment priviledges revoked, suspended, or banned if necessary and depending on the severity of the offense.

We also advise everyone to have their operating systems and antivirus software up to date. While we have made efforts to limit attachments to "safe" types (no "exe" or "zip"), there were vulnerabilities in unpatched versions of Windows involving jpg files. Better safe than sorry.

If anyone has trouble posting or viewing attachments, feel free to contact your friendly neighborhood Spider-man administrator.
