It may be inevitable that we delete a lot of things soon.

If the site keeps growing as it is doing then we'll run out of space even if we have no attachments at all!

Then we delete "King of the Hill 3" and "Corrupt a Wish". ;)

The only way I can see to change the size of a .png file is to play with the "bit depth", and I can't figure out what would make it require more than the minimum 8 bits. My test .png is almost 5x smaller than my test .jpg.

We have deleted a lotof things, already. At the last count dipsy reported 15% gone, and I'm still reducing mine (there are a lot of maps!), and I know a couple of large users have deleted theirs since the count.
