Yeah, right now they will remain until we delete them. The issue though, is we're nearing 4GB of data just from the attachments, so I could see a day come where we purge a large amount of them.

To Class' chagrin, I just cannot justify increasing our monthly expenses to house old content 95% of people will never revisit.
Does the forum software compress them at all?

I wouldn't expect photos from old reports to stay around that long anyway.

In the case of Photobucket and 16times Reports, chances are pretty good I already deleted the original photos from the old days, so the links wouldn't work now.

As site historian I think everyone should use flickr for photos. This why it doesn't take up board space

There may be an option, but I don't believe anything of the sort is enabled.

Well, I have a way to run large batches of images through an Adobe ImageReady shortcut that optimizes and reduces the file size. Works good on anything like 2 MB and above. Below that there's no point.
