Yes, I assume that ever since /gala/ was made we've been close to storage capacity, or at least that's the only big increase for a while that I can imagine - we are definitely using more than we did in our peak days at any rate because of it. In fact, I seem to remember all boards used to have up to 18 pages, I assume that's why the standard has been chopped down to 12.
I doubt webms alone will put us at 100% capacity, else a fuckload extra measures would have been taken. assuming we aren't using dedicated servers we can likely go over that for a short while before getting warnings. But webms will increase the usage by tens of megabytes (my bet, off-season 50~ MB a month, on-season 90-150 MB), which might not seem a lot to you, but if say, we only have three or four hundred megabytes left, that's a lot, since the server always needs extra space for certain operations that may need to cache data.
