    Increase attachment limit for posts

    Many release threads end up being lists of links or attachments. The limit on attachments at least for me, is too small, and would lead me to double post for releases which especially in my position would be undesirable. I suggest doubling the attachment limit.

    I don't want RZ to host a bunch of files , too much liability . I would much prefer smaller files such as TEXT or little silly scripts as opposed to giant ass files .

    Attachments are stored on the forum server. Legally, that's risky when it comes to hosting copyrighted data (such as server files) via attachments. Specially knowing the purpose of the forum, that's likely happening (already). Links refer to data stored some place else. I'm not a lawyer but I guess it's much less trouble for RZ if copyright infringing data is stored outside of the RZ servers. So keeping the upload limit for attachments fairly low forces people to upload their stuff somewhere else.

    @MentaL I think you are misunderstanding. I'm not talking about the size of the files posted but the number of the files. Like text files. From five text file attachments to 10 text file attachments. The size limit of these files are already limited by the data size cap of total attachments you can upload.

    Seriously, nobody read past the first line. What does double posting have to do with file size?

    your wording doesn't specify attachment numbers so one assumes its file size limit ;)

    So, now that we understand what I'm asking about, lets discuss it whether it possible and whether it should be implemented or not.
