    File size limit inconsistencies

    So yesterday a friend mentioned that her main barrier to entry for Weasyl was the file size limit. She's a visual artist, so I took a look for myself. 5MB for standard users! Even less with JPG! These do seem a bit low compared to Fur Affinity's limit of 10MB, deviantArt's limit of 30MB, and SoFurry's notable absence of a file size limit. Premium members such as myself get higher limits, so I did a quick Google search. The first hit for "weasyl premium" is a blog post that states that the "standard upload size won’t be below 10MB", but the upload page clearly states this is not the case; you have to be a premium member to get 10MB uploads for PNG and GIF. Moreover, even 10MB seems kinda low now that animated PNGs are a thing.

    That blog post was from 2 years ago, so it's quite out of date. We kept a lower filesize limit to see what our system could handle at that point in time, but I'll discuss with staff bumping the limit up.

    Added a redmine issue for it if you want to track it: https://redmine.weasyl.com/issues/255

    To be clear, we don't currently have a premium system in place for main site, there isn't a difference between the premium and non-premium users outside of the forums.

    It might be a good idea to change the submission upload page to reflect that. Does this mean I'm limited to 5MB? Or that standard users get 10MB?
