    Character limit.

    Can the 10 character limit for a post be reduced?

    Sometimes I just want to say "thanks", or post an emoticon or two.

    I also prefer typing that out, instead of using a "like" button.

    It can be reduced, but I'm not going to do that. The minimum 10 character limit is a default setting in vBulletin 4 and I try to run the software as-is as much as possible.

    Also, to be honest, I want to discourage posts that are just "lol" or or "Thanks". They don't add much to the conversation...in fact, they are not conversation at all. I know others will feel differently, but that's my take on it.

    Fair enough. Thanks for responding and explaining.

    OT, but did you see this thread?

    I was thinking you'd have some passion towards it.

    BS! I just wanted to say thanks. Nothing more nothing less. 10 character min? ***?
    What the freak?
    Someone paid me a complement. I did not want to ignore him-just say thanks. There was nothing more to say unless I started gushing all over myself, like some people.
    You want to discourage people from saying thanks? I donÂ’t agree

    Now my post says moved. I posted it in BBQing, now it says moved - to BBQing?

    You should be more democratic about this forum in stead of everything YOUR way.
    Like user names.
    It’s like a one way street like your YouTube channel, “Comments Disabled”
    Really too bad. This seems like a pretty good forum. But the more I delve in the more I get all the Dictatorship overtones.
    Just my opinion.
