    That is what I was afraid of. I also did some kind of "support report" and never got a reply on this.
    Somebody must pay the server fees and register the domain name. (it expires on 9-17-22)
    Somebody is paying to keep their identity secret by using a domain privacy registrar out of Jacksonville, FL.

    The board doesn't seem to be as active as it once was. It's probably not generating all that much revenue.

    Point being : The graphics take up a bit of bandwidth. Bandwidth costs money. I may be completely wrong ... but ... it would seem to make sense to run it on lowest possible cost / least amount of effort mode.

    I'm thankful that it's still up and running. It's probably due to the support of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous.

    I agree but I only have 46 photos posted at 7.5MB total. I am sure others have much more.
    I just want to go in and delete half of them so I can post more. There is no delete button in the photo section.

    You can always use a third party image hosting and paste the link. Not perfect, but it can bypass the issue. If the image is hosted somewhere else, it doesn't affect SMF bandwith.
    NEW TO SCRAPPING? READ THIS: Build up your horde of magnetic and non-magnetic metals in two piles until you have a better understanding of the business. Read old threads about non-magnetic metals and ewaste (and how to sort them), but don't forget that they generally have absolutely no tolerance for contamination (screw / iron / foreign material). Magnetic material has low value and is mostly always steel / shred / short iron.

    That is what I was thinking. It just make three times as much work, but I want to contribute. I get a lot from this site.
