Custom Anki Sync Server Limitation

I am using AnkiDesktop (Windows) with a custom sync server.
This works great between windows and android.

However, when I do a forced full sync from Windows,
AnkiDesktop tells me "My Collection is too large for AnkiWeb"

I know my collection is too large, that is why i am using a custom sync server to not block or overload Ankiweb.

Could you please remove this block in the syncing process for custom sync servers?
I have to manually copy the collection to my server each time, when I am doing a full sync.

best regards,

    Hi Max,

    The code in Anki was written to work with AnkiWeb. If you have installed an add-on to change this behaviour, it is up to the add-on to make other changes as necessary
