Well, in theory, we could delete all pictures older than a certain date, like what's going to happen with PMs, but that would be very arbitrary and literally gut the message board -- there would be Red Xs everywhere. On the other hand, it would save tons of bandwidth, but I would advise against that...

Are you having troubles with particular pictures you posted in the past? I think there is another thread about this subject...

Mr Mushrooms, first up when emailing/PM'ing sensitive suff with folks, you learn/use PGP. If you did that from day dot then it wouldn't matter if the feds grabbed the server. Good going on getting folks to use it. http://www.overgrow.com/growfaq/1551

Another advantage of PGP is it will allow you to backup oodles of PM's and other data as a PGP'ed zips and go upload it to a cyber drive -- then it's not even on your PC taking space and above all it's secure.

As for the "pics deletion" need T0aD (and I agree btw), a self-destruct button too would serve as well. Last thing I would want to do is prove to the admins who I am, my full name, my address, my bust wrap sheet yadda yadda just so I can exit. All I'd ask in the worst case scenario is let me pull the pin quietly. They do at Overgrow, what gives here?

On topic, PM's should be deleted, they safe guard you and your recipients. Shit, I haven't got one (1) person in the shroomery to use PGP yet. *sigh*. Slack. :frown:

Deleting pictures is a horrible idea, it would ruin so many old cultivation threads.
Best to not upload pictures you might not want to be connected too.

Loki: happy birthday man :smile: and Im sure users will delete pics that are incriminating, for example personal pictures, pictures of gatherings, etc. Why would we delete mushroom/plant pictures?

This notification has been emailed today to all Shroomery members. In case that somebody didn't receive it, I will repost it here.

2. The second probably more important reason is the amount of personal information stored in those PMs. This is a GREAT security risk for our members in the (unlikely but possible) event that the government seizes the server together with all the information that is on it.






Anno, if you are worried about security risk, why not let users delete uploaded photos too?

ps. 300 megs is nothing in terms of storage space.

It's not my intent to belabor the point, but I agree. People tend to change their minds about things like pictures of schedule 1 drugs growing in their homes (albeit, it's their fault for ever posting them). Also, I'm sure there is a huge amount of space being occupied by silly/useless pictures. If it's a huge pain in the ass to change this, don't do it for me :wink:...don't really care, just understand.

1. No, it's not a joke. We prefer to think of it as satire.

2. It's not the 300MB of drive space, per se, it's the number of additional records on an otherwise over-taxed MySQL server.

3. The picture deletion discussion is in another thread in this forum, and as I indicated in that thread, we are looking into it.
