I tried to submit a post with attachments which Windows Explorer reports as 222KB, 119KB, 225KB, and 225KB, and the forum server erroneously rejected it claiming that one of the attachments (naturally, it failed to specify which one) exceeded the maximum attachment size of 256KB.

Please fix this within the hour.

It must be the fourth one it's rejecting. Filename zz3.png. Windows reports it as 231,071 bytes (233,472 on disk not that that should matter if FF doesn't use an NTFS partition to store them, and still well below 256KB). Very similar in appearance to zz1 and zz2 and only about 500 bytes bigger than zz2.

What gives?

No, it clearly says the maximum is per attachment:

Quote
Maximum attachment size allowed: 256 KB, per post: 4

That very plainly says an attachment must be no larger than 256KB and there must be no more than four of them per post. The "per post" bit is clearly specific to the count limit of 4.

You have a real sense of self importance!

If you find something you perceive (correctly or incorrectly) as an error reporting it is fine.

But don't expect repairs on your schedule!  You are not paying for or supporting this forum in anyway.

Don't even think of trying to set a time schedule for fixing anything here, ever.

It's offensive and rude.

Perhaps you didn't notice the word "please"? In any event, I was pressed for time as I had other commitments later and would be late for those if the process of posting the post I was posting took much more than an hour (as opposed to the few seconds it normally takes). Fortunately, I found a workaround pretty quickly.

It does seem to be rejecting based on total size of all attachments, even though the documentation clearly says the limit is per attachment. One of these things needs to be changed to agree with the other, but the urgency is (mostly) gone. (Sooner or later another user will get bitten by this code/documentation discrepancy, though.)

Saying please first does not grant you the right to follow it with unreasonableness.

But I am done having this talk with you.  We've been up and down this road many times, and it's clear you will never learn.

Don't worry.  It's clear you will never understand.  I'll never say anything like that to you ever again.

I'll just start editing your posts to make them polite.

No worries.

Seriously this is fun, BUT I must give the benefit of the doubt and assume the origional post was worded in haste, and any continuance of this post should be regarded as simple fun.
