Well, that's a first:
Image loading... OR IS IT?

In case the image doesn't load, it says:
bitcointalk.org image proxy:
Bandwidth limit exceeded


Is this a local problem for my IP only, or did the 10 year art contest trigger a bandwidth limit for the webhost?

Update: I had a long day, I could of course easily check this through archive.is: it's only for me Sad
How long do I have to stay in the doghouse?

Can/should the bandwidth limit be increased? I was playing around with this a bit, but the "view All" button would have the same bandwidth usage.

I have the same problem. When the visual size is large it gives error.

Are you on Tor/VPN? Can you switch to another circuit?

No, I'm not, and I don't really want to use a VPN because of this.

I was just thinking that you might be getting the error because you're sharing an IP with someone who hogged all the bandwidth but it seems like your own fault Smiley

Can you get a new IP from your ISP? Reboot your router/phone/whatever you use to connect to the intertubes.

I'm hoping for a solution from the forum-side. It might be a temporary blacklist, but I'm afraid I'll hit it again.

Yeah it would be nice if this limit could be increased at least for the next month or so - I would imagine quite a few users might hit it due to the some humongous images being posted in the art contest thread.

Hi,

I ran into this issue recently when I tried to upload a pic that was too large.

If you physically resized the image and re-uploaded it to your image server and try again, would that still return the same error?

thanks!

I had it on all images, not just very large ones.
But: it works again: theymos hasn't posted here, so I guess it's a few hour timeout to be removed from the blacklist again.
