Dear Open Foris team, I had posted some time ago a question regarding limitations of Open Foris Arena: Subsequently, Arena has limited its use to 10Gb per user account, which to me is perfectly fine. Considering that you have added that limit, I would like to suggest that you remove the limit of 5 surveys per user. At the end of the day, it should not matter how users organize they databases, eventually splitting them over several surveys, as long as they remain below the 10Gb limit. I know that you have planned to allow, in future, changes in the maximum number of surveys for individual users. But, as we speak, that limitation is making things more complicate to me, and I wonder if it would not be just easier to totally remove the 5 surveys limit to all users? The Open Foris tools are an extremely helpful resource, especially for researchers in less developed countries. The 5 surveys limit will probably limit the benefit to those users. Best regards, Bruno

Dear open foris team,

The suggestion is good. I think once we have already defined the space limitations then why are we limiting the number of surveys? Thank you.

Dear Open Foris team,

I also agree with the suggestion above. I have been using OF tools with Dr. Senterre for the past 5 years in Mauritius and Seychelles. These tools have proved to be very useful for us and helped to develop very efficient and straightforward data collection methods on many different projects. I also understand the limitation to 10Gb per user account but as mentioned above, the limitation of 5 surveys per user would be a much bigger limitation for us. as such, it would be great if such limitation could be waived to ensure users from SIDS and other developing states to benefit a maximum from OF tools.

Best regards Francois
