I would be surprised if they couldn't raise the size limit for pdf files. The limit to upload videos here is 500mb. The owner of the forum may not want to use the extra storage space.

File Size Limit Increased

The moderators have agreed to double the size limit for PDF files to 4Mb.
I'm hoping that will make a difference to those wanting to upload files to the Reference Material Only thread.
Larger files will have to broken into sections to upload.

Looking for Clarification & Feedback

My assumption from the poll and replies was that there was a fair amount of support for this type of thread... but by the lack of contributions (only one!) I'm wondering where I went wrong??

I'd especially like to hear from Cyclone, siestakey, Conrad, seadog, & others that initially expressed some level of support.

Is the inability to index items on TF the barrier? - useless w/o this?

Have users tried the "Hybrid Mode" - if you go to the Ref Only Thread and view in hybrid the topics are relatively easy to find - I think at least -others??

I recognize the PDF size limitation is somewhat of a barrier...
but moderators have doubled the PDF file size limit

As far as organizing the ref info - as I stated in prior post - my thought was that if this was successful to start a similar thread in any of the sub-forums anyone had info to post... Boat Mfg specific in the builders sub-forums and engine specific in the power systems, etc. I'd be willing to assist or start them even, if there is interest -
I believe moderators would agree to make these stickies if they were used and valued - making them easier to find & use.
but I'm willing to drop the idea if that's the real sentiment?
