Im "not" (edit lol) trying to pressure you admin but i think you should consider the use of SWF files in text like images (not attachments) that will be amongst the test in the thread/post.

You can make a rule that no SWF files to be above whatever (1mb, 500kb). It's just a good form of animation and a good way to have fun (people can make animations). To save space users/members can make a SWF file with multiple imges in it so it saves page space. so if you click on the pictures it changes or it automtically chnages or whatever, it's up to the user to make the Flash Program/movie.

It may be sometihng you need to tihnk about for a while but i tihnk it will eventually have to come onto this site.

If not in text with threads, maybe avatars can allow flash instead of GIF (better quality and smaller files).

Just a thought that you might consider.

Thansk for the incrased file size anyway, thats just great admin.

My thought on this idea is that it should not happen, by allowing uploads of that file and content type we would be hosting a domain or cartoons and other content that is not related to Overclocking or computer problems.

Why don't you just make your avatar an animated gif?

Very few people will have Flash so whats the point?

Plus i block all SWF files in Firefox, as 90% of them are adverts at the top of web pages.
