    That is what I usually use
    If my site is low on uploads sometimes I allow 2050 (double)

    The settings here are going to be different for each site as it'll depend on the hosting space available and what the site is used for. For example, a photography forum may allow larger uploads and more attachments than other sites.

    On my site (A PS3 gaming forum) I have the following settings:

    Maximum Attachment File Size (KB):
    10000 (to allow sharing of full size photos in threads and this covers most digital camera photo file sizes)

    Maximum Attachments per Message:
    10

    Allowed Attachment File Extensions:
    txt
    pdf
    png
    jpg
    jpeg
    jpe
    gif
    tif
    tiff
    I saw no reason to have anything other than picture file types and possibly pdf and txt though no one has actually used these two

    Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions:
    0 x 0 (i.e. unlimited. The forum scales the photos to fit posts anyway)

    Attachment Thumbnail Dimensions:
    400 (I thought it was a little small at 100)
