There is nearly 15 years worth of attachments to various posts. In the next week or so, I plan to delete attachments older than 10 years. This will mostly affect fiction with attached maps, etc.

For those wanting to check, you can see all of your own attachments by going to "Profile" -> "Profile Info" -> "Show Posts..." -> "Attachments".

That is a lot of attachments.  And does that mean we've been posting for fifteen years here?

Did you by mistake purge some newer attachments or is it just me? This Thread from 2020 used to have some very useful tech tree maps that I can't find there anymore:

It looks like those images were self-hosted by the user who posted them and their site is no longer up. All the image links are for "db48x.net".

With this host 5 years I think, but the previous was easily 10+ years.

Damn, you joined at the same time with Steve, ZimRathbone. I guess September 2006 is when folks moved over from a Starfire forum or something like that? I joined on July 30, 2011.

I think that's when the Yahoo groups started to fall apart. So I volunteered to host a forum since I'd been a mirror site since the 90s for SFA.
