    Storage should not be a concern. We can upscale as our needs grow.
    Giving away control of our generated images is a REALLY BAD idea.
    This is a HUGE source of traffic / promotion / publicity for us.

    Also, don't understand why you think image management is tricky.
    We ran a site with appox ~100K products and ~1 million images (Benefits of drop-shipping) without a problem. (Just the 2 of us ran it)

    Sure... Great idea.. We'll get our own Content Delivery Network the minute we hit 1 million members. :)

    U serious? The last time I checked.. these things were very expensive, and meant only for enterprise class.
    Guess I need to check again.
    Any idea who they're using?

    There's a CDN in India itself.. called Akamai :)
    But India delivery is going to be expensive (apparently)

    CDN's are generally used for Video streaming.. not images.
    Akamai quoted a guy on this forum that I'm on $11K/month !!! (Dunno what his requirements were tho)
    So.. no still not cheap.. altho a possibility later down the line.
    Apparently $50/month can get you a decent CDN with EU/US based servers
    (This all from forum posts so take with a pinch of salt)

    I think a lot of companies provide pay by usage service.

    Ill orchestrate a CDN when I see the need. might not need akamai's help for that.

    anyway, the point is user album. 15 images is too less. So, I give you a 30mb limit. More flexible for you and a fixed expense for me. and yes, it has to be 5mb for anyone having less than 100 posts. exceptions always there and will be granted relief.

    That's a great idea.. Limiting by size. Will also make people think about optimizing their images.
    Is that limit per member or per album?
    If per member: does other images uploaded by a member (ones not in a user album) count towards that limit?

    Also: Mods/up should have greater limits. All content unless spam is valuable for the site.

    how much time does changing a limit take? our admin control is not a punch card reader based one, right?so when the need arises, limits will be re adjusted.

    MOZ needs to clarify if we can have separate limits. we might need unlimited for article/review content.
