Key Points - June 28, 2017
As of today, we're considering maximum file size in an effort to cut down on the DB size. Storage is becoming a problem due to how large this wiki has become.
- The server allows for 100MB files, which is much to large. Considerations are currently somewhere between 250KB and 3MB.
- File types may need to be limited.
- Number of thumbnails generated by the site may need to be further limited (already down from 5 sizes to 3).
More to come.

- We are no longer allowing .png file types. All of the largest files (per Special:ListFiles) seem to be .png so for now we're going to limit additional uploads to .jpg, .jpeg, and .gif. If things change in the future I'll note it here. You will need to convert your images to one of the image types listed above prior to uploading.
- Additionally, if possible I will be converting all .png files in the db to .jpg. I'm not sure if this is possible yet, but if it happens I will also post it here.
- Maximum file upload size is now 3MB, per Special:Upload. This is subject to change.
