We only allows image uploads. Other file formats including video and PDF files are extremely large. The cost of extra storage for such files in prohibitive.

 

SOLUTIONS:

  • Post your videos to YouTube and link to them here.
  • Post your other file formats including PDFs to your personal cloud accounts (Google Drive, DropBox, iCloud, etc.) and link to them here.

Please consider allowing uploads or attachment of PDF files of less than one megabyte. This is significantly less than your 9.77 MB image limit, which is quite large. Most forums have a image filter that automatically reduces the images to web page sizes of a few hundred kilobytes. Adobe has an easy to use reduce file size menu option. Allowing PDF attachments will help the AACA enthusiasts greatly by sharing procedures and information in an easy to read form. Currently members are posting text files as JPG images, which creates files that are ten times bigger than the original text and harder to read or print. I subscribe to four automotive and one motorcycle forum, and all of them accept PDF. Thank you for your help in making this forum an invaluable asset.
