Post character limit

Post by Veljko on February 16th 2009, 10:05 pm

I don't know if this is already suggested, but I will post this. I think it would be good to make limit of character in posts. I mean for example there must be minimum 40 characters in post. This would prevent spamming and pointless posts. The way I mean is that you can choose the limit and you can disable it if you want to.

No, not that limit. I mean minimum characters. You must type that minimum, then you can send the post.

I would like to know I have the option of setting a minimum character limit for when I think I need it (eg. the forum members start to get "spammy").

I'm also going to be voting yes on this suggestion.

I agree with PradiseKid, thats what I meant. So you can choose to set it or not to.

Providing that this option can be enabled/disabled and that the value can be changed. I voted yes! Smile

No, never. I disagree with this idea.

40 characters is FAR too much for a minimum post. Besides, i want no limits at all ( as Doctor Inferno already said ).

You are administrator of your forum. You have probably stated the "No spamming" rule. You have the power to warn/ban members for breaking it. Be a tyrant and act like it when you have to.

I said 40 for example. you can put your own limit and choose to activate it or deactivate it. Also you can choose to put less character limit.
