Applaud/Smite character limit increase
« on: March 12, 2012, 03:18:24 PM »
The current character limit seems too short for some posts. Users are sometimes required to misspell words and/or replace them with other characters and/or reveal only some of their reasons to make it fit.
Would it be possible to increase said limit?

OK I raised it from 55 to 100 characters.
Seriously, you guys are the meanest people I have ever met.  I hope you are happy and feel really good about yourself.

could you also stop those with negative balances from smiting or applauding others?
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  It was annoying trying to write a reason when I ran against such a hard limit.  55 characters doesn't always even cover a single sentence.

I think Hatter's point is that we sometimes get people who have a negative karma start smiting others back.  I haven't seen that happen much, though.

I'd rather not, as long as they have a reason I don't want to silence members. If anyone has a complaint about a specific smite let us know and we can look into it.
