A higher limit to characters in messages*

Post by crunk89 on August 24th 2007, 2:34 pm

Characters in the messages: 15 999 characters (Including spaces)

Hi 'd like to propose the idea of a bigger limit to the charcaters we use in messages.
I oftenly have problems using only 15 999 in some threads(specially collections) that I update everyday or in posting NFO files that contain ASCII art in a code
Pls can this be done Smile?

I vote yes. It would be nice to allow more text, especially for writers who like to share their works.

i vote no. from my experience, members will often not read posts that are too long winded. It is not a necessary change as it is something that could be easily overcome by just spreading the article over a few posts.

Well for some forums it might be warranted--for instance i am a writer and there are writers on our site, and some of them share original works under that forum. Short stories are often longer than that. Thus, the solution would be to make this option available to the administrator, and be used at their discretion.

I would vote a third option.. only if the admin can set the limit lower than a new higher max. I personally don't need, nor want more characters as I cannot stand to scroll through endless long-winded posts. But, I see that others would like it, and could use it, so I'm not one to vote against their needs.

You know this is well needed. For instnace I need alot more space so I can put a price guide (the guide has a lot of coding with links to the miniature and its stat card) of the collectable miniatures that we have. There are 15 sets thus far and I dont want to make 15 different posts just to post a guide.

Those of you who voted no, arent looking at the good side of having this-as stated above I would have to make about 15 replies to one post to get the whole price guide done-that is insane. I would even pay like 5.00 a year!

Personally, I've rarely been bugged by the limit, but when I am bugged, it's a crack in my backside :/
I think I'll vote for a yes

I vote yes, seeing as it seems that the Admin(s) should have at least some control on things like this.

I would love this for my forum. We are an RP forum that requires this extra character limit for character/clan bios and the like. Something closer to...60k would probably do it. We require a great deal of detail for people that wish to make stronger characters. If anything, allowing admin to set the limit would be much better in my view. Those who don't agree with expanding it can at least agree with allowing the admin to set a limit, right?

Lets say 15,999 plus spaces is the current right?

You could make three options:
Low: 15,999
Medium: 30,000
Large: 45,000

I'd LOVE to have 60k, but 45k would be alot better than 15,999. That makes it very annoying and will cause people to make a lot of clutter on a topic that should only be one or two posts long.

Besides, anyone who is RPing should really be maxing out the buffer if they are just posting in a play by post RPG. The only time I have ever done such a thing was during character creation.

There's my 2 cents Very Happy

I voted yes as well. We have a writings section that also needs increased for exactly this reason.

O.O Scott! What a surprise, oh well, maybe not.

Okay, listen. I'm author and I publish my work on my forum. So everytime I finish a completed work I reach the limit. and the mean thing is, you never now before were it will be in your work (I mean, who counts the characters in a 20 page story?) and then it's annoying to copy it all.
but I also think that not all ppl would use that possibility nor do all want it. So maybe increase the characterlimit but contorl the max length in the admin panel.

I think that half a year or so is long enough for a staff member to accept this mod.
