Caution: You cannot delete an upload once you have added it...system is broken...TPTB are watching you closely now days!

At present, there is no ability to delete a file. And most likely, as we further develop the system, deleting files may be somewhat limited as the expectation is that you'll be using these images in threads... and a slew of missing pictures may make some future threads somewhat confusion.

No chance of upping the image size limit? I have some gif animation files I want to post.

I live in constant fear of clicking on the wrong picture in my "My documents" folder and uploading something completely inappropriate

Yeah if you got any naked baby pictures which used to be legal, you better delete them or you could spend 30 years in the slammer if you accidentally upload one and can't delete it:

Naked baby pictures that were once considered harmless, like bathtub time, or shots of kids running naked through the sprinklers, are now considered possible child porn. This is just insane.

Even if you're finally exonerated after $75000 in legal fees like these folks, your life is pretty much ruined just from the accusations. The mother lost her job and both parents were completely innocent.

But yes it would be nice to have a delete function, I thought it would be added?

The old picture application has a delete function, did that create a problem?

The only pictures I deleted with the former picture application, were never used in a post, they were uploaded by accident when I clicked on the wrong file, usually a picture with nearly the same filename that I hadn't resized to 600 pixels wide. In fact I have such a picture in the new system taking up space that will never be used in a post, it's the wrong size picture. So it won't damage any posts if I delete it and it will free up some space.

I've spent most of today trying to get the CDN service's API to "purge the cache" of an image... with no success.

As a refresher...

When you upload images, all uploads first go to a large hard drive on our servers, which is then mirror by our Content Delivery Network. This means that your file is pushed out to about 100 different servers across the globe. This allows us the "unlimited" bandwidth and storage capabilities to allow members to use their uploaded images wherever they like, even on other non-ATS sites.

The issue is, it's not like other image hosting scenarios -- it's not our code, not our servers. So to remove and image, it must first be deleted from our hard drive, then a "purge cache" command sent out to the CDN layer to remove all versions of the file from all servers. And it's not working.

I have a support ticket initiated, as I'm certain the code we have is correct. More updates as I have them.

Any news yet on when we'll be able to justify left or right the pics or when the additional files will become available?

When the additional files come online, will we be able to move pics from file to file so we can sort them better? That could be a solution to the problem of not being able to delete unwanted pics; we could designate one of the files as a "trash bin" for pics that ended up being the wrong size or that got us a T&C violation when we posted them to the Funny pics thread.

That way they wouldn't be cluttering up the files that we do use more often.

Most of the integration issues have been sorted out, and the upgrades to the ATS Member Upload Service have been migrated to the live version. Here are the changes:


Each image now has a red X below it which immediately deletes the image from your list and our content delivery network. Please do not click the big-red X if you don't want to remove the image, there is no "are you sure you want to delete" confirmation.

Because of the nature of our CDN, which allows us to offer free image hosting for our members -- even if you use the images on other sites, it may take up to 20 minutes for the image to be completely removed from the CDN cache.


Everyone now has four folders to organize their images a little better.

The "Initial" folder is where all uploads are initially stored. You can either keep the images there, or click the little "-> 1", "-> 2", "-> 3" buttons to move the image to one of the three other numbered folders. Use the links at top to browse between the four folders.

Delete function is great, and very useful as to not absorb so much storage bandwidth. I will myself take advantage of deleting old files to aid in the upkeep of this wonderful site the owners provide for us. Thanks guys, hope the nose is felling better too.

I have a marvelous naked baby picture of my granddaughter we have in the powder room, it makes me laugh every time I see it. It would have a G rating, it's the big smile that gets me in such an infant (at the time), she's now 27 months young.
