Could this be lowered to 2 or something? If you're quoting someone and just want to add a smilie, or something similar, you have to add in more characters. So you either have to change content entirely, or post extra full stops or something. Muchos annoying.

Didn't say anything the first couple of times I got it, but I'm getting it quite often and it's such a pain in the arse...

The idea is that "+1" is two characters, so the limit is set to three.

The 30 seconds between PMs, now that gets on my nerves. 15 seconds would be much more to my liking.

Something to stop the Daoc lot just tying +1 or QQ. Which on bw made up about 74.77% of posts

*sigh*

So DAoC users brought about this pain in the arse.

Why am I not surprised? Is nothing sacred?

Easy: Add "+1" to the swear list.

Or, hack the limiter to require at least 2 alphanumeric (+smily) characters - so that you can make a ":D" reply but 2 letters of which one is "+" gets denied?

It looks like I've really got it in for SheepCow at the moment... ;)

No you are jumping to conclusions. I set it at 10 originally to stop pointless spam including just responses with a :p in it.

Then they could type in +1 and have it turned into ** and people would still know what it was :p

Can we have some kind of compromise at least and have quoted text included in the character count??

Quoted text will not be included in the character count otherwise you can just quote a message and not type anything.

But that was fun!

Especially the misquoting...

Not wanting to point out the probably obviousness... but if emoticons NAMES count towards the number of characters for "Minimum Characters" then you will still get single "thing" posts:

:confused: = : confused : = 10 characters
:kissit: = : kissit : = 8 characters
:fluffle: = : fluffle : = 9 characters

Hmmm, not sure I am making sense. People can still post a single smiley in response to a thread if the "code" for that smiley is longer than X characters...

Pah... confused myself now... :D


Edit - there are more - but I didn't realise there was a limit on the number of smilies per post!
