A higher limit to characters in messages*

Post by crunk89 on Fri 24 Aug 2007 - 8:34

First topic message reminder :

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 voted yes, I keep running into this problem a lot. For those you that don't want a higher post limit, it's not like your being forced to type that much. Maybe (if it's not to much work as I have no clue what it takes) a new option could be added to the forums that lets you put the limit that you want for your forums.

Sure. I see no real harm in this.

People just go around it anyway and have to take the effort of posting a second post, so it's not like anything is being saved by NOT Doing it, yet by not doing it it makes things look messy.

I can understand things like clans and stuff making a double post saying "*Stored for extra info*" and stuff. Increased post limit is a great idea!

a 15999 character long post is at least half a creen page, about 4-5 word doc pages

More is just cray affraid

I agree. that is a overwhelming amount.
if you were doing images and filled the whole page you are talking like 200 images depending on which code your are using .i mean if your writing a story or something? then i would suggest writing everything in a note pad first. then adding what fits and the rest as a quick reply and have it continued as needed. plus i do not know of many people who even allow that much space for one post. but of course that is up to the admin to choose.

i think forumotion offers the most when it comes to that. any more is just insane.

Hey

why don't we just let this be an option in the admin panel that we can set the limit on our own?

A also vote Yes. This is very important. I have a game where people create these tracks/courses to ride on with a virtual bicycle. They post codes to play them. And the codes are tremendously long.

I disagree with this limit for one and only reason. I am from greece and because the forum doesn't support very good my language if i try to make a big post in greek(and this happen even to small posts but because are small there is no problem) Every letter translated like this a=afdsabfdad, x=sdghsdu so the post at the end is very very big. My suggestion is or make a bigger limit or take care of the labguage!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok you are complicating this suggestion.

The suggestion is we should get more characters in posts

Vote yes or no

If you language is messed up, make a new suggestion fixing it.

I voted Yes a long time ago, but I havn't seen this happened yet. Is this for like a new grouped update for the site or what? Anyways, I believe we should bring the charactar limit a little bit higher than that. What about a million characters :p. And I'm not even playing!

I vote yes, as nothing is saved by having a smaller character limit, but I would understand if the admins were unwilling to do it.
