Running out of space?

If you’re running out of space to upload files then head on over to the Upgrades page where you can buy an extra 1GB, 5GB or even 10GB of space to store more files for your blog. Can you really fill that much space with images and stuff?

There’s also a handy little space meter on the Uploads form now so you’ll have a better idea of how much space you’ve used.

To make things more interesting, I would like to hear about your ideas for filling 10GB of space. The most creative idea will win the 10GB of upload space. I don’t want to hear about uploading your collection of MP3 files (which isn’t possible anyway), get your thinking caps on and blog about it and link to this post.

  • You must blog about your idea and link back to this post. It’s no use leaving a comment here.
  • Your post must send a pingback to this announcement to be entered in the competition.
  • Closing date is 48 hours from now. You have 2 days.

Good luck!

    How much space do we have now for free?

  2. gpessia

    this is a great idea!

  3. Rattling the Kettle

    Good call with the usage meter. I had no idea how much space I was using.

    Cool! Not running low on space just yet but have been considering adding some free graphics.

    cheers… quickie… which is more space efficient… saving picture to page or file? :-) after all don’t want to waste your hard one storage.

  7. sockrebel

    The file space (25MB, is it?) is going to run out eventually for regular bloggers. I’d really appreciate a system where users would get something (maybe 1MB) each month posted or for every 20 posts (whichever is less).
    Thanks for the constant improvements.

    I hope I posted my entry for the 10gb of space correctly. I have never done a pingback before.Please notify me via email if it is incorreect. Thx!

  10. Load Start

    will this be one-time fee or monthly?

  11. kevinclosson

    let us upload pdf and other productivity docs and I, for one, will buy more storage.

    We actually doubled free space a few months back, so everyone has 50MB of space free. Upgrading is a yearly subscription.

  15. Christian

    thanx … good thing

    @dpcough and sockrebel
    The FAQs blog tells us we have free of charge a 50 megs maximum upload space for images http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/11/11/upload-space/

    One would perhaps need those 10 GB for a video blog.

    I went to Uploads to check the “space meter” at 1738 CST, and there is no space meter on the page. There’s an explanation of credits, links to purchase credits, and a list of options to purchase with credits, but no space meter.

    Where is it again?

    Wow, I thought I had used more. :)

    Thanks for including that on the upload form.

  36. David Raho

    Good idea but can you make the free allowance a little more generous for those poor folks who can’t afford it?

    I would be willing to have some selected advertising on my blog in return for more space.

    Please give it some thought.

    Yes! Next up if you allow uploading of .pdfs and .docs and put something like the more you blog, the more you get storage every now and then (like GMail), I’ll be definitely buying that upgrade!

    Ping does not work :(. I made 2 Links inside but none does appear here…

    I think it would be a good idea to be able to create a backup of our blog in our wordpress space, would be?

  50. GS Defender

    I would use that space to host some documents (PDFs, OOo) I make available to my University colleagues. I would not fill that space, either: at the moment even 500 MB would be a huge amount of space (thanks 7-Zip and bzip2) :-D

    Trackbacks are broken, or it needs moderation? My post is here: http://pizdets.wordpress.com/2006/12/07/space/

  56. Jeffrey

    How can I send a pingback to this post? Is it enough checking “Allow Pings” in my post?

  57. rizzyc

    i dont use ANY of the space because I upload all my images to imagesheck.us, theres nothing really other then images and words to fill my blog up. My precious, precious words.

  58. primel

    I don’t even know whether it is possible to upload audio/video files; If so, a video of someone reading a short story would already take quite some space. And when it comes to a spoken/read novel?
    To buy space costs money. One-time payment or regulat monthly charges?
    and if so (monthly) what happens if the blogger runs out of money?

  59. Jeffrey

    I think I got it figured out. I should use “Send Trackbacks to” option to send a pingback.

  60. kochkurs

    Ok! More space! But, for what I need this???

    alternatively, you can upload the daily pics to flickr.
    and link it to post on wordpress.
    this save space for meaning pics to be upload to wordpress

    use wordpress upload instead to upload the pics that are nicer.

  65. axewielderx

    O.k. I posted to my blog about this and even included a link back to this post,yet, I see no pingback here. There is not anymore I can do. The post is at http://axewielderx.wordpress.com/2006/12/06/10-gb-of-space/

    So I tried and it looks like, as usual, I have wasted my time.

    I have my post set to allow comments, allow pings. I’ve also added the url for the contest page into the allow trackbacks to url field. I don’t see anything here to reflect that yet. Does it take a certain amount of time?

    The post can be found at http://fracas.wordpress.com/2006/12/07/i-uh-just-need-some-space/

    Thanks for the opportunity and well… even if I don’t win, I’m just so glad to have met all these other wonderful girls and I know these friendships will last forever… oh yes, and I really do want world peace.

    Choke.

    Ok, so I don’t really think I’m Sandra Bullock, and while sometimes I am.. I’m usually not Miss Congeniality. I just want to win. There. I said it. Screw you all, I don’t want second place, the citizenship crown or anything else. I want to win.

    Anyway i never have much use for free space as I use Imageshack for imagehosting. As for pingbacks all you have to do is enable pingbacks and put a link to this article somewhere in your post. That should be it I guess. hehe
