Quote from: Busnerd on June 25, 2019, 11:56:44 AMIf I recall correctly, we no longer support hosting photos on the forum due to bandwidth and storage limitations, as we pay for this forum and website out of our own pockets we only have as much storage/bandwidth as we need, allowing anyone to upload large volumes of photos would greatly reduce our storage and could require us to purchase extra storage.

I host my sites in the US (even with .AU domains) and most accounts come with unlimited storage (with very generous fair use policies) and bandwidth there is dramatically cheaper compared to hosting in Australia.If it has been a while since you've looked, them I recommend checking some of the major US based hosting places as bandwidth and storage is super cheap now compared to a few years back.One other option, in the config for either this forum software or for your hosting account, check to see if you can limit upload size - ie activate user uploads but limit what they can upload by size and frequency.
