Im all confused with the gallery. if when I upload I put the items in the member's gallery AND one of my folders..does that count as TWO uploads?

Reason I am asking is I always seem to get a message saying I have exceeded my upload allowance...but it always gives me a wacky number. Like today it says "You have exceeded your upload limit of 16 images per day." But I only uploaded 9 l/os yesterday....but I have had it give me some really out there numbers like 24 and 36....when I haven't even gotten to 15! Am I just nuts?? Wait...don't answer that!

I would appreciate any help you could give me!!
