For some reason I can't delete some of my attachments - there's no checkbox for some photos meaning I can't select them to perform an action... anyone know why?

I could delete some but not others.

Looks like you are trying to delete attachments attached to a message that has now passed the editing time window.

Therefore you cannot delete the attachment as you are not allowed to edit the message.

Make sense?

Not really, as when I first noticed this problem I was deleting much older attachments than the ones in the list.

Also, why would the edit time passing prevent me from deleting my attachments? The edit time only refers to the post itself and not whether I have attachments uploaded to my profile?

The attachments left in your profile are all attached to the photo competition threads. You are not allowed to edit the posts, so the attachments cannot be removed.

So if we reach our attachment limit we cannot upload any more and cannot delete old ones because of the edit limit?

edit:// also if that is the case, is there a way we can link images from the gallery directly? (actually showing the photo in the post, not just the link)

I am looking at enabling the album feature within vBulletin and or increasing the limit.

That still doesn't explain why I was able to delete older attachments that were also in threads, that were older. Surely if what you were saying was the case I wouldn't have been able to delete anything.

According to the vbulletin coders (there is a thread on their forums about this), there is NO permission that will either allow or deny a user the ability to delete an attachment.

The only thing that stops a user is their ability to edit the post where the attachment is connected to. Believe me I spent some time looking for an option but it does not exist.

OK that makes no sense at all :(

The only thing I can think of is that the edit window might reopen after a while closed?

I don't think a post can reopen for editing, mods and admins have different privileges for editing posts.

The attachment limit has increased from 1mb to 2mb for now.

I managed to delete an attachment that was in a very old Thread...
