Just testing something. again.

What is the best way to communicate "person to person" with a wiki? Is there a "public" way & a "private" way? Anyway, just a simple observation, the upload limit for a file is set to 32mb, which seems a bit big. Do you think it should be reduced to save your web space? As an example, with my photo gallery the maximum image size is about 250kb. A wiki like this "could" grow very large & all files have to be backed up. To give you some idea, the 7,000+ files that run this wiki are only about 80mb. What do you think?Sharpo (talk) 10:01, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure myself. I do know I get confused with conversations going on on my own talk page, article talk pages, forum PMs and two forum threads.
I suppose, things like the map are probably best discussed on the forum as there's always a chance that someone reading it may be a bit more artistic than you or I and offer to help.
Good point about the file size limit. I'll look in to it.

OK, communication methods still to be decided.

Some "useless" statistics. Just backed up image folder, a couple of days ago it was 84 files in 82 folders and 3.3mb of data. Now it is 200 files in 132 folders and 4.6mb of data. Growing slowly! Sharpo (talk) 10:36, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

I have a suggestion for "communication", will test it later. If it works will pm you on SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society forum Graham. Sharpo (talk) 12:58, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Graham, sent you a pm on SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society forum, let me know what you think. Sharpo (talk) 14:00, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Sandboxes

I know you are talking about a sandbox menu option to allow the right page name to be suggested, but in the meatime typing "User:<username>/sandbox" in the search box will result in an invitation to create the page. Madderlake (talk) 23:17, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, how did I not think of that? Typing [[User:Graham Phillips 110/sandbox]] has the same effect User:Graham Phillips 110/sandbox --Graham Phillips 110 (talk) 03:47, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
