lol, being ambitious here but maybe max upload count can be modified by doing doing good stuff.... like maybe getting 100 of your images rated a 4-5 gives you +5 on your max upload count.
While I can understand what you mean and the idea has some merit, the idea behind a daily upload limit isn't to punish or reward anyone. It's just that I personally feel lately there's a visible increase in people who post a mass of images just for the sake of posting or as if it's some sort of race to upload more than the others.
Sometimes stuff seems to be uploaded just because it's possible, and people just flood because they can and not because they are adding good quality images.
And also, really let's be honest, isn't 20 images per day per user more than enough? How many really have over 20 good images to post every day that not being able to hinders them? I think we have to be realistic here and see that 20 images is certainly enough and people can always wait until the next day to add more if they've e.g. found an artbook with 30 great scans.
Besides this is about cutting the load on the mods and such and working the overall search for images.
Not really only the mods but the members as well. I mean when you browse shuushuu once a day or let's say 2-3 times a week and you have to wade through 200-500 images, do you really have the time to open them all, appreciate them, comment on and save those you like?
I suspect more and more people just flip through entire pages without really having time to look at them.
Also, maybe a notice on saying how many you can upload would really help.
So this way, you would really choose wisely on what you want to upload to maintain quality and rare images.
That's in fact what I was kind of hoping for, people actually looking again at adding good, unique images, either high resolution or really cute stuff.
And not just dump the latest 50 google image search results for 'nekomimi with sword' because zOMG another person posted a flood of the last batch of 75 Naruto's character x with character y fanarts.
