Hi all. For a long time, we've allowed video uploads to the forum. However, the uploaded videos are taking anywhere from 25-50% of our storage space and making backups a big problem for us!
I have nuked a few of the largest videos that were in the off topic section so that our backup can still continue to happen without us having to pay our hosting provider for more storage space.
However, within 30 days, i will be removing the remaining video content from the board and archiving it off site.
If you have uploaded video into your posts, please reupload to a site like youtube and edit your post to link to the new video.
If there is some video in a post you feel you are going to miss.. contact the poster and tell them to do the above!
Before all the videos are deleted, i will go through each one ( there are about 1500 ) and determine which ones are really important and probably upload them to youtube in an 'endless sphere' account and edit the post so that the video still remains on the board..
But of the 1500 videos uploaded, we are probably talking about 10 or 20 being preserved by hand by me.. so please take care of your video content if you want it to remain.
