Photo size reduction

Ive noticed that the system now only allows photos 500kb or under to be auto converted to less than 100 kb.
its making uploading photos difficult. I have reason to believe that the photo crisis in december may have something to with it.

Re: A simple commoner?

Re: Another UNknown opuntia

I wrote some swear words, deleted them afterwards, and sent the account deletion request to daiv. Mostly because i was harassed by spikylover. I do beleive i posted about it .

Re: Must Cut, Rotting. 1st time, many questions

"Sulfur powder is more effective" while ive got nothing against it, its just not very safe to use without proper equipment. Again, im not in the US, i recall there being a severe snow storm, and i dont know the price range.

Re: A simple commoner?

Arent cacti contstantly reclassified anyway? Why apply rules for cacti in that grow in the wild, when the specimen originates from wholesale?
