    I think when you post something it can have less then 25 characters? Because some are questions? Or complements. for example. I said to someone: cool vid! Then it wasnt enough so i had to had like 7 more of !!!!!

    I agree... the limit should be at least 10, or something around that range.

    It was 10 but, this limit of 25 stops people from spamming

    This prevents spamming. If you don't have enough characters then think of other things to say. I think 25 characters is fair.

    well, if someone like, posted a picture, and i wanted to say "thats cool pic" i'd have to say something else really long and pointless :|

    Then they could say "That's a really cool picture you got there" which is over 25 characters..

    Hello, did you read announcements? In case you haven't, here it is.

    This is not a lot, it's 25 characters. The reason I have this is to filter out pointless posts like "cool vid". Try "That's a pretty cool video.". Better yet, try "That is a cool video, I liked the part where the person did this, it was very comical. I hope to see more from you". If anything, I might actually increase the character limit.

    the twenty five character limit is retarded, phsy

    the reasoning behind it has never made sense. now that people are actually posting, I keep getting told that my post is lame because I use two words.

    it lessons the strategical impact of saying just a little.

    it all depends, but sometimes saying less requires more thought from both sides.

    I kinda already posted this... But yeah im not complaining but it could go a little lower. But I do see his reason. He told me it blocks spam more and that if you cant do more than 25 characters then just dont post.

    just... wow, phsy.

    I didn't know this topic already exsisted, but I'm keeping mine up for intelligent discussion rather than this topic's, "ya i hate it 2."

    ya know? that's a good idea. I think I'll go with that.

    it's true I made this thread before I saw that, but this still stands on its own.

    nobody over there made an arguement for THIS side. I'm probably not going to either.

    I explained the reasoning, it makes sense to me. It's to stop the two word posts. Like "that's cool", "Alright then" "that's good".

    "Strategical impact"? Those are fancy words, but I don't really know what you mean. When would saying less than 25 characters require more thought than saying more than 25 characters?

    I'm merged the threads. I don't really like having multiple threads about the same thing.

    What I said about not posting was to Chevron, not to you.

    What is "this" side again?

    Well I don't like the 25 character rule, cause sometimes I wanna just ask a quick question. I think it should be like 10-15 character minimum.

    I think it's just fine. Try expanding your question then if it is too short.

    I think the 25 character rule is great. Just use more words when you post.
